“Stunning scenery and drive with great food treat when you arrive at Tighnabruaich”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 4, 2010

Burnside Bistro Knows how to entice you into their establishment that's for sure! The cake stand is straight ahead just inside the door. No Costco/Makro bakery items in here. All scrummy homemade to die for delights. Sister and I went for light lunch. Between us we had homemade soup, tuna and cheese toastie and the cakes, of course. I have to say the meringues are the best I've ever tasted. No offence meant but they are even better than Sheila's diner if you've had one there. We were well looked after by Lorna who made us feel welcome with her happy cheerful manner.
We now plan on going back (with husbands) for dinner soon.

“Unmissable”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 11, 2010

Small restaurant in the centre of Tighnabruaich. Have visited several times and have never been disappointed. On our last visit had the best venison I have ever eaten. Homemade soups and cakes are fabulous and the meringues are a delight. Great atmosphere and an extremely welcoming host. Would recommend booking.
