This is a gem of a place to go to. I have been several times for dinner, lunch an Sunday lunch. Food is always fantastic. Incredible and attentive staff. I love to go on a Thursday night for great food and fabulous cocktails at incredible price. Love it here.

I liked everything about this place. Staying in Newcastle on business, a dreary wet day and I decided to try somewhere nearby my hotel. Thanks to tripadvisor I found this place. Very friendly and fast service, nice lighting & decor and choice of background music. I arrived at 6.30pm and was offered the early menu, 2 courses for £12.95. I... More

Really good Sunday lunch with very good trimmings. Very tasty but moist meats cooked as requested. Roasted potatoes and mash very nice. Four veg all nicely presented and brightly coloured. Veg were very Al dente so if you like them soft I would mention on ordering. Tasty gravy. Good service, generous portions, puddings were acceptable.. Would have been too much... More

Comfortably my favourite restaurant in Newcastle. Very well priced but the food is truly something else! Very attentive staff and a fantastic chef, not found a dish I don't enjoy. Not to be missed

Don't you just love it when someone else provides Sunday dinner for you ! Pop along to Bistro Forty6 and let them take the strain away!! We had thought of going from the main menu, but decided to stay with the Sunday lunch menu after observing meals brought for other patrons. Starters of Ham Hock and Tiger Prawns were very... More

I had a three course meal here with my friend during happy hour and the food was delicious - we both had mussels in spicy tomato sauce with chorizo, garlic and pea risotto and the eaten mess.. Each course was delicious and the portions were the right size too. The staff were very nice and we didn't have to wait... More

I went to bistro fourty6 last week with a friend who was visiting. Having read the reviews on line i was quite excited, but was wholly dissapointed by the experience. We were informed that they only had 1 serving of scallops left when we sat down, and when we went to order were told that we were too late, which... More

I chose to come to Bistro FORTY6 for my 50th Birthday celebrations after reading the reviews on this website and was not disappointed. We had been when it was Bruges and always liked the fact that it isn't a large restaurant. It is every bit as good and our whole party enjoyed their meals. The food is superbly presented and...

Never heard of the place, didn't know area but over the moon I came across it! Food was amazing, absolutely the best food I've had in ages. A real treat to discover this place and the small collection of other business there just really nice to sit back in the sunshine enjoying the wine and food and soaking up the... More
