Cafe 1999 was refreshing, service was quick and attentive. The food was prepared well and tasted great. We were there as a party of four for a business dinner, no issues with lively conversation all around us

My wife and I have been eating here for 9 years now. We try to go at least once a month as we absolutely love the food there. The staff are always friendly and well mannered and their knowledge of the menu is awesome.

Our waitress set the bar when it came to knowing the menu. She made every item sound delicious. Complimentary starters were delicious. I recommend the Spiced Calamari Salad. Great ambiance. Just a perfect place to relax and enjoy good food,
