Up in Inverness for a gig for a long weekend. The 2nd night we had free so thought we would try this place it was superb. A great welcome from who we thought was the owner. Staff were superb attentive but not overly. As for the food well that was just spot on we all skipped starters and went for the mains plus desserts can't fault any of it portions just right flavours perfect. We will certainly be returning on our next trip North.

I have been traveling to Inverness for business for the past 10 years. I always try to make it a point to have at least 1 meal at Cafe 1. The food and service is great. They also have an extensive wine list.

This was our fist dinner meal in Inverness and it set the standard for our entire trip. Great staff, superb menu and excellent food. Definitely worth visiting again.

We managed to walk in here on a week night and secured a table. We were warmly welcomed by the owner and two male members of waiting staff who were both very attentive throughout our visit.

We both ordered a tempura prawn starter and it was absolutely delicious with the biggest, most succulent prawns you could wish for. Certainly the best I've had anywhere and I nearly always choose prawns.The accompanying sauce was also superb, as was the unusual mango and pea garnish (it really worked)

We both plumped for the monkfish for our main courses and it, too, was beautifully cooked and presented, with black pudding and a delicately creamy curry sauce.

Desserts were also lovely, with the white chocolate and peanut cheesecake being exactly how a white chocolate and peanut cheesecake should taste. I tried a little bit of the steamed jam pudding and it was very nice too, though as constructive feedback, could possibly benefit from being just a wee bit bigger.

Wine was lovely and reasonably priced and its always nice to have your gin served with the appropriate garnish and in a lovely, big, balloon glass. Makes such a difference...

We thoroughly enjoyed a superb meal from start to finish, served by friendly, competent staff and a very hospitable owner.

We'll be back and are happy to recommend..
