The Burnside was long a good place to eat with lovely cullen skink and other hearty dishes. However it closed and has now become the brilliant new restaurant Botanica

Burnside has been excellent value since it opened almost ten years ago. The menu is well-balanced and the food is excellent. The internal decor is very interesting and the staff are first rate. Another must visit restaurant when in Cowal.
