“Sunday Lunch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 July 2014 via mobile

An excellent meal with a level of service that was truly impressive. This is a restaurant that knows how to treat fish with respect and this was proved with a baked cod main course. The wine list is legendary and they have a knowledgable staff.

“Good food, good service, great value”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 June 2014

Well thought out menu with good use of local produce. We enjoyed the food and attentive service as well as the complimentary tipple of whiskey liqueur. Great value.

“Fantastic food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 June 2014

The food was excellent and the service was very attentive. We all enjoyed our food, two in the party had the Scrabster Cod and two had rump steak. Both were mouth wateringly good. Highly recommended.

“Seriously good food in Wick”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 May 2014

Recently spent 5 days working in Wick where I had the pleasure of eating at this delightful little restaurant. Main courses were quite delicious and very reasonably priced. During the course of four evenings here I enjoyed an excellent fish and chips served, as it should be, on a newspaper; Lochquay collar of pork and monkfish, peas, broad beans, veal jus; Pan roasted corn fed chicken breast, orzo, pancetta, tomato and black olive sauce; Baked Scrabster cod, capers, herbs, brown butter. Its not everywhere you can enjoy mains as good as these and a decent sized glass of wine for £20. Indeed I would go as far as to say that No 1 Bistro probably has the edge on the infinitely more expensive Captains Galley 20 miles up the road in Scrabster as a restaurant you could enjoy eating in several nights in a row without burning a serious hole in your pocket. Recommended perhaps particularly for anyone travelling up to John O'Groats for the ferry to Orkney.

“The Best of Caithness”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 May 2014

Back again and Murray's team met all my expectations with a very good value lunch menu Excellent friendly service and a showcase for quality food, Beautifully presented and locally sourced. Worth the detour...Ok it is 12 hours drive from London but if you on on the way to Orkney or John O'Groats book a table.
