“Good service and decent food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2012 via mobile

The servers here were very kind and the food was reasonably priced. It was close to being perfect - but in nearly all the dishes there was something a bit off that kept them away from being spectacular (too salty was a common issue). It was though good value for money and the dishes were creative.

“Enjoyed the food very much, but didn't get moneys worth, the service was good but the atmosphere was dull!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012 via mobile

Enjoyed the food very much, but pricy for the amount you receive. The venue is tiny so thankfully the service was good but the atmosphere was dull!

Cafe 1999 always delivers a great experience for both food and service. The wine list is quite extensive

“Dinner”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2012

Food was delicious. Great atmosphere. Waitor very forceful, over confidant. Will be back, one of my favourites

“Nice food...but accoustics?”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2012

We really enjoy the well balanced menu with original and interesting starters and mains.....Unfortunately the accoustics is terrible and we would go there more often if they solved this problem. We always sit outside just to overcome this problem.
