this restaurant is the mark boucher of resturants. Solid and reliable.

For breakfast, tea, lunch or dinner cannot go wrong here.

Place is immaculate. The artwork , white table cloths and formal garden make it a relaxing fine dining experience.

The menu is limited but does offer enough to keep you coming back. Owners Dylan and Jessica are excellent hosts. Staff are friendly , efficient and helpful.
Go on a date, as a group, for business or just kick back and read the paper on the patio and have a meal. That is burnsides. Popular on weekends.

Wine is hyde park sophisticated, and the coffee is the best.

I have been to Burnsides a number of times and have found it to provide good, reliable food albeit a somewhat limited and unchanging menu. It is well situated and quiet - a real boon when one does not have to shout over music when you want to have a conversation! The service is generally good and unobtrusive. One can always rely on a pleasant evening out although it will not necessarily light up your taste buds!

This restaurant is sort of hidden away in the suburbs of Sandton area of Johannesburg.The menu was short but more than adequate in it's choices , likewise the well priced wine list. Overall the experience was good, the dishes chosen were well presented and tasted excellent. The wine choice although limited was well priced and there was sufficient choice to cater for most palates.
Service was quick and unobtrusive.

This is one of our favorite places! Great ambience, tasty menu, sound wine list, great ambience. The fillet steak is a must, and the creme brûlée is the best in town!

I'm heartily sick of Joburg restaurants. So many of the waiters are completely disinterested. So many of the managers are jaded and unenthusiastic. And so much of the food is profoundly average. And yet - there are those gems... Many of them, I'm pleased to say, in Craighall. My little 'hood.

Burnside's Cafe is one of the rare gems.

Great menu. Great service. Lovely friendly affable staff who remember how you like your coffee, if you're a regular. Management is on-site and involved. And the food! It's delicious, wholesome and looks pretty on the plate. I love Burnside's. And you know what? So does my little one, who plays on their lawn with everyone else's kids on the weekend. Good job, Burnside's. You're totally up there...
