“Excellent Service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2012

We have occasionally eaten here, usually going early without booking. Always had great service and good food.
We went just before Christmas without booking not thinking how busy they were with office parties etc. The owner frantically tried to find space for us. When he couldn't he asked us what we would have ordered from the menu and wanted to give the food to us free as a carry out. I could not believe how kind he was and how upset because he could not give us a table. It was entirely our own fault for not booking. We decided to order anyway and eat in the very cosy bar. After taking our order he came back and told us he had managed to fit in a table for two.
The service we received really was outstanding. Any other restaurant would have just told us they were full.
I can not praise the management and staff enough. Thank you for making us so welcome. We will be regular customers and have already recommended this restaurant to our friends who were also very impressed.

“A delicious restaraunt, family friendly”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2012 via mobile

After being thourorly disappointed when eating at the restaurant which is listed at number 1 in this list of Whitley Bay Restuurants (micaelangelos) Ilistened to the locals and was delighted with the warm, child friendly restaurant which is Picasso's. Creme brûlée and Irish coffee made it!

“Nice restaurant!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2012

Picasso's food's really nice; it's away from the centre of town so very quiet but still good for a romantic dinner or a family meal.

“Great Atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2012

Visited on Saturday night with family & mother inlaw, food was ok the atmosphere was great, the service was very prompt and efficient. They have a singing waiter which plased everyone. Not the greatest Italian food I have ever eaten but a pleasant evening had by all, I would go back.

“Good local restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2012

Have lived in Whitley Bay for years and for some unfathomable reason had never been to Picasso's until a few months ago. Been a number of times since and enjoyed it every time, including last night, and always as a family. Good value, nice atmosphere, doesn't take itself too seriously. And even when we had a hiccup with the service (on a past visit) was resolved swiftly and generously. The Country Pork has become a favourite.
