“Great views, tasty food but expensive and poor service”
Reviewed February 23, 2013

We had a voucher for food in the restaurant but it was not explained by staff about extra charges on food.
The cheapest bottle of wine was £20 and a pint of beer is £4.50.
The food was very good but staff inattentive and slow. The location and views are very good of the Tyne Bridge and Quayside.

“Fantastic Food & Views”
Reviewed February 22, 2013

Don't let the fact this restaurant is in the Hilton Hotel put you off! Yes it's pricey but I believe in you get what you pay for when its comes to food. The salmon starter was a huge portion and very tasty, my wife had Thai beef salad and the beef was cooked to perfection, mouth watering just typing this! The steak which I had for my main was cooked just how I like it, not a bit of fat! They had a fella playing the piano which was a nice touch a better than your normal background music.
My only comment would be the staff, different waiter every ten minutes and not 100% knew what they were doing but saying that and based on the food we will defiantly be visiting again!

“Fab Food!!”
Reviewed February 13, 2013

Highly recommend the food in this restaurant. This was my second visit and both times hot food has been served just as it should be - hot!!
Time spent over dinner could be slightly less rushed but service is good and as a business hotel a lot of people may appreciate a speedy meal.
Would return.

“Fantastic.........”
Reviewed February 19, 2012

What a great place, the food was fab and nothing was too much trouble for the staff. The view was amazing. This was a special place to celebrate my daughters birthday, she booked to take her boyfriend,who lives in Guernsey ( where we have some of the best restaurants ever) when he visits next week.
