Beautiful food however no sooner sat at our table than waitress asking if we were ready to order. Again no sooner finished one course than next put in front of us. Waitress also taking wine away from our table when it was still half full. Dont expect an intimate romantic meal, tables too close together and there were several large parties whilst we were there and made for a very noisy unpleasant experience. Will not be visiting Cafe no 1 any time soon.

Went with friends, didn't book but able to get a table, more surprisingly not fussed about my gluten free request. Knowledgable staff, food Delish, no rush service top marks all round!

First visit to this highly recommended venue ,,perhaps we expected too much .The decor and service were first class but the closely set tables and low ceiling did accentuate the noise level from a rather rowdy group . I thought the menu rather tired and uninspiring ..tired in that they appeared well used !! looks like they dont change things often. The food was a disappointment . My wifes fish dish was brought by a server using a napkin as the dish and the fish was extremely hot .. it may have left the chef well cooked but was certainly well done by the time it reached the table .My steak was plopped on a bed of green beans and everything was smothered in a powerful sauce consequently no other taste escaped . Perhaps if we had lesser expectations we might have been less disappointed ..£50 pp (inc 3 glasses of house white ) has been better spent on fine dining in the Inverness area .. The town restaurants continue to let themsrlves down ... this ones laurels are well rested i think

Really worth a visit, the food was amazing, the service was great, really professional and friendly. Had a lovely bottle of wine to go with our food too. We really enjoyed Cafe1, a very modern restaurant with lovely decor and reasonable prices for the quality food.
