Used a groupon voucher to eat at this restaurant in the summer. Was pleasantly surprised. It was very quite, dispite there being a sold out show at the theatre over the road there was only us and one other table in. Food was very fresh and tasted good, only complaint would be that the menu could have done with more... More

Visited early Saturday evening as a friend had recommended it Andy I'd subsequently saw on offer on Living Social. The service was friendly but there was no atmosphere and the restaurant was ice cold to the point we were forced to put our coats back on. The food was OK but quite expensive for what it was (£30 on top... More

On arrival waitress asked for our voucher and advised it was worth only 22 pounds not the 28 pounds stated on voucher. Only two other diners having lunch. Food freshly prepared, price OK with voucher but otherwise overpriced. There are hundreds of places to eat in Newcastle hence competition is tough. I intend to contact wow her regarding voucher.

We booked a table for two in the Cave on a Livingsocial voucher this week. Restaurant has 4 separated rooms decorated nicely like cave. We went at 17:30 so restaurant was not busy but by 18:30 all the tables in the main room and in one of the other rooms were full. On arrival we were briefed about how we... More

We had a groupon deal for the cave (formerly restaurant krakow) for evening meal with wine to the value of £28. Found parking space right outside. Restaurant was quiet with only one other table occupied. Waitress was friendly and attentive, explained what the groupon included straight away and kept our glasses full. I had potato pancake, partner had polish dumplings.... More

The food was a little bland, the service was fine, the bill (as it was a groupon) was fair. There were a lot of small flys in the restaurant and I would not pay the full price for the food. I probably won't go back.

We purchased a groupon coupon for this establishment hoping to try some polish food. We paid £15 for two people to have a three course lunch. Arrived at THE CAVE the place was empty. No smell of food cooking and one member of staff visible. On presenting the coupon we were told the menu was soup, pizza then ice cream.... More
