We popped in here for some breakfast rolls at the start of our trip to Barra and decided to end our trio with an evening meal here.
So tonight we returned. We phoned in the am to check they'd be open for dinner as we were slightly out of season. We were advised that they'd be doing 2 sittings. 6 & 7:30. We reserved a table although not required but we needed a highchair.
We arrived & were shown to our table by the owner Pauline who was lovely. She was happy to talk to our daughter and tell us about her newborn granddaughter.
The menu is mainly a mix of Indian & Italian dishes with a local twist. We opted to share a plate of scallop pakora between the 3 of us as it was the dish we'd seen on the menu originally & were dying to try. I ordered the chicken jaipuri (lamb version available but as we were there during lambing season I couldnt bear to eat lamb) & my husband & daughter shared the smoked salmon spaghetti. They both arrived piping hot & huge portions. My daughter & I got stuck in but unfortunately my husband was struck down with a migraine during the meal & was unable to eat. The staff were only too willing to offer him help & boxed up his meal to take away.
My curry was by far the best I've ever tasted. Right amount of spice without being too much & no chemical after taste I often find in Indian restaurants.
The cafe itself is quite cosy & adorned with excellent paintings which I think were done by the owner which I didn't realise on our first visit. If I had some spare cash I would be tempted to ask if any were for sale.
