“Disappointed”
Reviewed February 17, 2014

On first inspection looked good but very expensive food and cakes and home bakery extortionate.....meringues very good spoilt by runny cream in the centre which meant they fell apart...not worth £3.50 tag! Dusty through the back.

“If there was a rating for 'good', that's what I'd choose!”
Reviewed January 8, 2014

We ate here twice in the evening when on a cycling holiday in the West of Scotland. Food was tasty but with a pretty limited choice for vegetarians. Also, the local bottled beer is pretty awful and the house wine was a bit rough, too! Haggis-stuffed chicken very interesting and more reasonably priced than some of the items on the menu - I guess everything has to be shipped out to this spot at some cost.

“A warm welcome on New Year's Day”
Reviewed January 4, 2014 via mobile

We found this cosy wee bistro when out for a walk on a wet and windy New Year's day. It was warm and cosy, lovely coffee and cakes. Friendly staff, with a warm welcome. Just what we needed. If we had had more time in Tighnabruaich I would have liked to have gone back for a meal.

“Nice cosy bistro”
Reviewed October 29, 2013

While passing through we decided to try the burnside bistro after looking at the reviews on tripadvisor.

We had a baked potato which was delicious but quite expensive for a potato (£8.95).

Tray bakes and cakes available too which looked lovely. Nice place but a tad overpriced.
