Not as bad as I thought!

There are many bad reviews about this restaurant, that also goes under the name Abari, which makes things rather confusing as vouchers are sold on various websites under both names. To be honest the meal wasn't anywhere near as bad as I thought it was going to be. The decor of the restaurant is... read more

Aaeeeyy!! Felt like I was in Italy, I was loving life and there was a romantic moment with a fish. The waiter was class "whey aye man!" And my meat was firm. #iminlovewithafish

Love this little family run restaurant near the city centre. Always greeted with a warm welcome, lovely fresh bread with oils and balsamic vinegar whilst waiting for meals. Amazing food and very quick service. Would highly recommend

After reading many negative reviews i was a little apprehensive about visiting here for lunch but as i had already bought my Groupon voucher i had no choice! We had bought an offer of a 3 course lunch for 4 people for £22 and we were not disappointed. We were greeted warmly and taken straight through to our table where... More

The place is ok and the service is fine but the food quality is not so good. We asked for our steak rare. I even clarified I really meant rare to the waiter who said that would be fine. When it came it was well over cooked, at least medium. How hard can it be to cook a rare steak!?... More

Abari, previously Da Mimmo's, was a favorite haunt of ours when we worked in Newcastle. However as we had not visited for quite a while we decided to have our regular catchup here for old times sake. We were not disappointed! We had not made a booking but were quickly seated at a table for four by welcoming and friendly... More

Purchased the Groupon voucher and the moment we were taken to our table we were told we could ONLY have a starter upto £5.10, where the voucher stated upto £6.95. We were then told we could ONLY have sirloin steak, where the voucher stipulated any steak main, worth upto £14.95 (excluding fillet-steak)- when we reported that the voucher we purchased... More

Went to Abari (Da Mimmo's) on a Groupon with the wife on a Monday night. The starters were ok, the wife had calamari and I had soup. The steak was really thin and tasted off. We sent it back and got another that wasn't that much better. I got lasagne which was not great, stodgy and luke warm. Maybe Monday... More
