We've been into the Burnside a number of times over many years but we hadn't been in for a while and called in for lunch a few weeks ago. It's had a bit of a makeover inside and thankfully got rid of the bright orange walls - it's now much more tasteful and a very pleasant atmosphere. Excellent food and service. We'll be back.

Stumbled on this place one morning, on one of the first mornings of our holiday in Portavadie Marina. We decided on a full breakfast with a pot of tea. The food arrived piping hot and swiftly. The black pudding was to die for, as was the rest of the breakfast. The staff were very attentive and friendly, we didn't have to ask for top ups of tea or toast as they just kept coming!!!! This is a gem of a place. We will be back to taste evening menu later this week.

Food adverage. 21st centre and they do not accept cards. We were told when we recieved the bill.

The welcome when we walked in the door from the owner was "Name" not good evening and welcome (The normal welcome)

Food is simple and cheap. Nothing exciting. Thanks David err Basil. Customer services.......

The best meringues ever! The Burnside Bistro offers a fun, friendly and charming place to go for morning coffee (fantastic latte and expresso) with a meringue, delicious snack lunch followed by a coffee and another meringue, afternoon tea for more meringues and an exquisite dinner of local produce from sea and field ending up with coffee and the last meringue of the day! Fine weather allows sitting outside on the edge of the sea watching the boats go by or outside on the edge of the road watching the action in the village. Definitely the hub of the village and a place we visit every day whilst staying in Tighnabruaich on our yearly trip to Scotland.

Stayed here for a few nights at the begining of August and it was excellent! Stayed in a great room that felt like a private appartment as we had on own front door! Breakfast is served in the Bistro with a great choice cooked to order & fresh fruit on the table.
Wish we could have stayed for lunch as we saw the fresh langoustines being delivered as we were having our breakfast!
Overall this is a great stopover & brilliant location at the waters edge & the center of the village..with friendly helpful staff!
