I went to the  restaurant the Waterside, Ardrossan Road, Seamill, Ayrshire, Scotland for lunch with friends today.  I had previously been for coffee when it opened in 2011 and had been disappointed.  However, I had been told it had improved.  It had need.

The interior of the restaurant is beautifully designed.  From the moment you walk through the door at the Waterside there is an immediate wow factor at this stunning, bar and restaurant.  It also has a wonderful water’s edge location with panoramic views out to the Isle of Arran in the River Clyde and extensive menu choice to suit every palate.  However, as a vegetarian, I have to say the choice is sparse, although the quality of the food is good.

The design is based on stunning Cape Cod, New England, style and makes for an interesting place to dine out or simply relax and unwind after a busy day at the office. When the sun is shining there is no better place than the private garden and covered veranda area where a delicious alfresco food is available throughout the day.

Today I had the vegetarian fajitas followed by a chocolate fudge sundae.  My friends had a variety of beef and chicken dishes followed by lemon meringue pie and warm chocolate pudding.  We all thoroughly enjoyed our meals.  The service was courteous and timely.  All in all it was a lovely afternoon and I will go there again.  The cost for lunch was above average for this area, being £22.50 per head, including drinks.  However, the Waterside experience affords customers the chance to watch meals being prepared through the kitchen’s open pass.  Other culinary features include the Robata grill and fresh fish ice display.

It is lovely to have somewhere special to dine locally. I look forward to using the Waterside again and highly recommend it.

    Haven’t been yet, interested to hear your comments re vegetarian options. I often find the vegetarian choices uninspiring, although the Lawthorn Restaurant in Irvine does a fabulous saag panner!
