Had a lovely meal. Best French Onion soup I've had. Great attentive staff. We had a small issue that was painlessly resolved. Definitely will return.

Family meal to celebrate a birthday. Amazed at the level of service on bringing out all meals together at the same time. There was 16 of us and we all got our meals at the same time. Timed to perfection. The mushroom and goat cheese starter was beautiful. Ambience is great and I will definitely be coming back soon.

Brilliant Italian Restaurant Quay side Newcastle. Recommend chicken liver starter. Pizza was fab. And the seafood pasta very nice. Around £100 for 4 starters and mains and a couple of drinks. Good night out. Very much enjoyed our night would definitely recommend.

Visited this restaurant a handful of times and never disappointed! Beautiful food in lovely surroundings with very attentive helpful staff. They do a very reasonable lunch time and early bird tea offer with a choice of 2 or 3 courses. Worth booking on a weekend as its gets very busy. Great Quayside location too.
