Reviewed yesterday NEW

The home made flat bread with our starter of hummus and tzatsiki was lovely, and the dips were delicious. Both had burgers, and were very pleased with our choice. Great service too.

I went here beginning of April for Lunch and it was amazing, the staff were nice and polite and the food was absolutely amazing. I recommend to anyone the fish as it was so fresh and the batter was perfect. Definitely coming back next month

The food is amazing. This place never lets me down. First of all the service is top quality, the waiters have excellent customer service. And now the best part... the food. The fish is so fresh that I've heard that it is caught on that very morning of the day you eat the fish, the meat is so tender that... More

After our main course, we were abandoned in favour or a large group that arrived after us and offered nothing else. When I complained, the lady threw her eyes up to the ceiling. Disgraceful way to treat someone putting €50 someone's hand (and more, if the service had been forthcoming)... She tried to blame my gf for being a slow... More

We had dinner here. The staff was friendly but the food was mediocre at best. The fish chowder had fake rubbery fish in it. My husband had the mussels and they were good. The prices are high for what you get. The restaurant was empty and now we know why.

Joanna F, Owner at Bayside Bistro, responded to this review

Dear Reviewer, Since we do not have a chowder on our menu it would be very hard for us to put "fake rubbery fish" in it. We do not keep fake fish in the restaurant as a rule, and definitely not the rubbery kind- that would take up too much space reserved for the fresh fish that we use in... More

Really nice menu with good choice and also specials board. Very decent portions, had 2 courses varying from Fish&Chips, Chicken&Chorizo Pasta & Vegetarian Risotto and not forgetting the delicious homemade brown bread, unfort hadn't room for desserts.. Another time for sure! Staff nice and helpful.

Lovely clean quite. Food was of a very high standard very impressed, I have eat in a lot of places in Achill and felt the standard could have been better but not the case here. Quick glances at the other tables you could see beautifully presented plates. It is a bit on the pricey end but the quality is far... More
