Cafe DeLos, National Museum of Scotland, EH1 1JF, Edinburgh

I went for a a quick bite to eat with a friend one lunch time and thought it would be nice to sit inside what Kevin Macloud once referred to as "a cross between Crystal Palace and an inside out Mississippi River Boat". How wrong I was!

Whilst the waiting staff were perfectly satisfactory in their manner, their actual serving was not. I ordered tomato soup and my friend ordered Gazpacho. Hers arrived promptly and then I was left for about three minutes waiting for mine. It's a good job her soup couldn't go cold!

When my soup finally arrived I was most disappointed. There was a chunk of fairly soft, uninspiring white roll with a knob of butter - but no knife with which to spread said butter - and a bowl of soup. Now for £4.50, or thereabouts, I would expect something with a bit of substance. Some actual tomatoes to be visible perhaps. But no, I was served lukewarm Heinz soup. When we came to pay the bill I commented that the soup had been horrendous and asked if it was home made. It was!! Where on earth did their chef train?

I was dutifully apologized to and given a comment card - which consisted of a series of questions, with the multiple choice answers ranging from 1 - poor to 5 - very good. There was a tiny three word sized space for actual comments and so I had to write up the side of the card how bad my "experience" had been.

Would I recommend this place? Perhaps if you want a can of Coke, but then they'll probably overcharge you for that too! Give this place a miss.
