Located a bit outside of the city centre As you like it is still easily reachable either by foot or by car. It has a great decoration and you definitely feel comfortable while dining there or if you want to get some drinks. Staff was very attentive, polite and always tried to pay attention to... read more

Took my mother for a nice lunch the food was great and the staff were brilliant. The choice of cocktails is fantastic and I struggled to drag my mother out of there once she had the drinks menu in hand. Really nice and would recommend it.

We attended on a quiet August Sunday, shown to our table which hadn't been prepared, the salt & pepper never did arrive. It took 15 minutes for someone to come & take our drinks order. The food took 40 minutes to arrive one of the orders was wrong, no real apology, the rest of us had finished before the correct... More

I booked The Terrace for my daughter's engagement party which holds 80 guests. The space looked a bit tight for that many people, however part of the outside area was also included and roped off for our guests only. We also had our own bar. I dropped off some fairy lights/banners/balloons/cup cakes and an enlarged poster of the happy couple... More

We visited this restaurant for a special occasion and left very disappointed. I had a sirloin steak which was pretty rubbish. It certainly didn't look like sirloin and it was very fatty and lots of gristle. The bill at the end was getting on for £60 for second rate starters and pretty poor pub type meals. When I complained afterwards... More

AYLI used to be one of my favourite spots in Newcastle sadly now it's a 'meat market' rationing dreadfully expensive cocktails - Past it's sell by date

As this Restaurant was participating in restaurant week we booked our table for three for 1.30pm. The service was excellent from start to finish and drinks nicely chilled. We all had tomato & red pepper soup with delicious warm bread followed by two fish, chips, mushy peas & homemade tartar sauce. The fish was the largest we had ever seen... More
