Best restaurant food we've ever had

We've dined at Sprout three times in the past two years. Each time the menu has been different. The staff have been friendly and very professional. The food has quite simply been the best we've had in a restaurant. Creative and flavoursome. An absolute delight.

Sprout is my favourite restaurant to go to whether it be for a special occasion or just dining with friends. The food is always fantastic and the staff are friendly and efficient. Just watch those drink staff though as they fill your wine glass before you even realise.

Found staff very friendly, ordered shakes and chicken Ceaser salads, even though this dish is simple fare it was well presented and one of the best Ceaser salads I have ever eaten. Both my husband and I walked away happy.

Sprout is the cafe adjoining the Newcastle Museum and offers a great, varied breakfast menu or is a good spot to have a coffee during your Museum visit.

We ordered two entrees and two mains. The presentation is fantastic but the flavor is just average. The similar ingredients apply to all dishes. Staff is most friendly and pleasant but the price is surely too high in terms the food on offer

Met friends here for the second year to celebrate Christmas. Staff, food and particularly dessert were excellent. A friend and I shared a Entree and Main to ensure we had room for the excellent dessert, the staff had no problem with this, very accommodating supplying us with extra plates when needed. We used a couple of the 25% off coupon... More

Very pleasant staff, cocktails fair - but almost every meal whether main or entree has pesto applied ( I didn't have desert though). My blue eyed cod was a little dry - I think the lamb and beef were fine I recommend the bread rolls and the gnocchi is as good as I've had

Went for dinner party of two using entertainment book offer. Hassle free booking made at 4pm on a Thursday for dinner that night. Initial impressions is good. Clean decor, alfresco dining and open kitchen. No table cloth. Being seated at the table one feels like you are at a friends house on the water. Staff were friendly and offered knowledge... More
