Happened upon Cafe One, during our stay in Inverness. Great reviews in the travel guide. Comfort food Ina clean setting, honestly, this was one of our favorite finds.

Helpful, and nice waitstaff, we arrived without a reservation, during peak season, reservations would be better.

The most wonderful menu exists here. A grown up version of fish and chips, the fish are evenly covered, placed on purée pea, delicate and extremely yummy. We were blown away by the presentation of the plates and the menu.

Great relaxing dining experience. Dessert options were wonderful. At the end of the meal they dropped off homemade chocolate chunks...such a nice treat and surprise.

We did not expect Inverness to be awash in fine dining, but it is! Cafe 1 marvelously experiments with creative twists to traditional Scottish dishes, in my case tempura monkfish on a dab of black pudding. It was spectacular! A Spanish Albarino made the perfect wine pairing. During desert, the owner was serving some regulars and splashed a wonderful dessert wine into our glasses. If you have only one night in Inverness, go to Cafe 1.

We recently visited Inverness and read that Cafe 1 was tops so we tried it. It didn't disappoint us. The service was exceptional. We had a great young Maitre D, server (Katie) and a young man from Portugal who assisted Katie. The food was wonderful. It was such a great experience that we returned two nights later. Same great experience. The beef filet was the most tender beef I have ever had. The Scottish salmon was superb. Highly recommend Cafe 1.

Had a lovely meal in this restaurant last night. The quality of the ingredients used in all our dishes was absolutely excellent. The posh fish and chips were particularly good. The staff were all lovely and the service perfect. Thanks for a superb dinner!
