“Lovely tapas”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2013

Had lunch recently at El Coto. This was our second visit and it was as good as last time. Six tapas dishes (the mushrooms were excellent) and a bottle of wine and two after dinner drinks and coffees came to under £50 - excellent value.

The restaurant has an authentic Spanish feel and good atmosphere.

“Excellent!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2013

My boyfriend and I had a reservation at 9pm but when we arrived they were extremely busy, we didn't mind having to wait so ordered a bottle of wine at the bar. We didn't get a seat until half past 9, which was not a problem at all but the waiter gave us the bottle of wine on the house because of the delay! The service was excellent and quick, all of the members of staff were extremely friendly. The food was lovely, we ordered 5 tapas dishes and they were all delicious. I would definitely recommend for excellent service, fantastic food, and overall it is very good value for money!

“Favourite Tapas in Newcastle ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2013

I've been here many times and its a firm favourite. The food is consistently good, as is the service and the atmosphere. There's so much choice on the menu that even the fussiest of eaters are catered for. I'd recommend the dates in bacon as well as the aubergine dish in particular.
