This was one of the first places where Catriona and I dined during a recent holiday in the Western Isles. It was busy, very busy in fact, and we were grateful to the staff for accomodating us at a table that was reserved for other diners later in the evening. We made sure we finished in plenty of time for the booking to be honoured.
The food was excellent as was the friendly helpful service.
In fact we enjoyed it to much that we returned later in the week and can report that the food and service were of equal and consistent excellence on both occasions.

Cafe was bright and busy. The menu was modern and priced accordingly. The waitstaff were attentive and the room was clean. Once the food arrived it was just...ok. Perhaps it was busy and the end of a shift.

A somewhat typical attempt at a hip cafe bar. No different to any other similar establishment you can find in the average city. The staff could be best described as 'functional'. The food served is of average quality. Nothing much more to say about this cafe bar.

On a trip to the wee weege (Stornoway) good for lunch or afternoon tea and cake. Good value and plenty of atmosphere as plenty of people coming and going.

Enjoyed our Sunday lunch at HS-1 and we would go again but the service was very slow. The staff are very friendly and did their best but for a very busy Sunday there was only person serving at the bar and two waiting staff. The menu that was on our table was the lunch menu for throughout the week but we reckoned there must be a Sunday menu somewhere ..... We asked a member of staff and we were given one but we had been waiting 15 minutes; a long time to be waiting before you can look at an appropriate menu. A Sunday menu should have been placed on every table. Incidentally, the weekday menu was a wee bit splattered with food-not good!

Saying that the food was lovely and the service was great when the staff got round to us. Look forward to the next visit - hopefully more staff next time and more attention to detail.
