Welcome to Cafe 1
I have pleasure in offering you a unique, fine dining experience here in The Highlands at Cafe1, Inverness.

We take great pride in sourcing local ingredients - some produced by ourselves from our own Croft!

Our open plan kitchen turns quality Scottish produce into appealing modern dishes.

We are a restaurant that moves with the times.

Had a lovely lunch to celebrate my daughters 18th. Very attentive staff, food service was a little slow but the restaurant was busy at the time so this is understandable, absolutely wonderful food. Would highly recommend

Enjoyed a relaxing late lunch here. The atmosphere was cosy and welcoming and the service was great. There was plenty of choice across two menus and nothing was too much trouble. The food was delicious especially the beef bourguignon and the cafe afagato.

Disappointed in the portion size.One potatoes sliced up placed under the turkey and a few shedded Brussels. It’s not often we are still hungry after two courses but on this occasion we all were.

Great service from wine waiter ( tall lad ) long wait between courses - other diners who arrived after us - did not have delay between courses.
When challenged our meal arrived quickly - however we had to request our sides !

Quality of meal - taste and presentation very good.
Wine a bit pricy.
A noisy environment.

Would recommend

Perhaps not the place to go on a Saturday evening for a romantic dinner! It was exceptionally noisy but thankfully the staff were able to move us to a quieter table. Friendly and efficient service.
