“Great spot”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2013

Very good food, reasonable prices (in general) and warm staff. Certainly worth a visit if in the area. My only niggle was the Seafood Chowder at £8.95. Get a grip, you are a lovely café/Bistro not 'Fine Dining'!! Otherwise, no complaints.

“Hearty food after a day on the high seas”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

Sailed from Gourock to Tignabruaich and worked up a very healthy appetite after 20-25 knot winds! My haggis stuffed mushroom starter was seriously great, spicy and crunchy.Loved it! Had a burger for the main course with (asked for) well fried chips. Home made burger and relish was great. The haddock dish looked great too. House wine, both red and white were more than acceptable. Atmosphere fun and I would recommend any other visiting pirate to visit!

“Delicious food and friendly service!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2013

My boyfriend and I visited the Burnside Bistro on a whistle-stop trip of Tighnabruaich. The friendly staff managed to fit us in even though they were fully booked and it was on a Saturday evening. The food was delicious....cooked fresh to order and with high quality ingredients! We would definitely come back when we are in the area. Be careful though.....cards not accepted, take cash or your cheque book!!!!

“Very comfortable”

We had a coffee here when we arrived and booked a table for Fish & Chip tea the next night (fuller menu available)
Would have visited again time permitting.

“Truly brilliant & accommodating!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2013 via mobile

Three of us arrived late for a mid afternoon lunch from the Waverley, leaving us just 30 minutes.
We had mussels and chips and haddock and chips - very well prepared, hot and quick.
Coffee was also excellent.
Very friendly but also professional staff ....
In a "mainland" league apart from the usual island / remote eatery.
Recommended for anyone on a steamer excursion.
