We were hoping to eat at another restaurant which was shut, and decided on Eilean Dubh instead. 2 out of 3 of us ordered a baked potato with cheese & onion, which was served with potato crisps (interesting accompaniment to potato: potato.) The other member of our party had the "Deluxe" soup & sandwich option: Cullen Skink and a sandwich.
Our portions were tiny! Somehow we baked potatoers had expected salad to be served on the side: this was because the menu listed baked potatoes as an option to sandwiches. We had overlooked the accompaniment "option".
To be upgraded from sandwich to baked potato cost 55p each. Our bill had a total of £1.60 added for this privilege. The error was corrected but our bill with drinks came to a total of £19.25 and we all felt very much unfulfilled.
The youthful staff were a joy to speak to: friendly and warm, even when faced with disgruntled customers such as ourselves. They are the one saving grace of this sad little cafe.
