First time visit for a birthday celebration. Service, food and cocktails were absolutely fantastic. Very comfortable surroundings. Good value for money too!

“Outstanding Food: a great night”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 13, 2013 via mobile

We have never visited before but will certainly return. The food was especially good with an interesting menu. I especially loved the Plum dessert which was very tasty. Service was friendly and helpful. The cost was more than we would usually pay but was well worth the £80 for two people.

“Oustanding”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 12, 2013

The ambience is relaxed but smart, the food is fantastic, good wine list, reasonably priced. I can't speak highly enough of the chef, the table staff and the entire experience.
Would be nice if it was open later though. Having said that I have never felt rushed at the end of the meal even though it shows as closing at 9pm.
This is, in my opinion, one the the top restaurants in town. David Kennedy holds his own against the highly priced places in Best cities in the world.
Well done on getting the whole package right!
Bravo.

“david kennedys riverside cafe”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 6, 2013

This was our first visit to the riverside café, after strong reccomendations from friends and family.The specials menu at only £4.95. has to be the bargain of the century!!. The quality of the food,is amazing, the staff are fantastic, and the whole dining experience was faultless.We still cant believe how its possible to serve food of this quality,in such a lovely place,by staff this good,at this price!!! Needless to say we cant wait to return to this gem of a place. You HAVE to try this amazing place,theres nowhere in the north-east offering this standard of food and service at these unbelievable prices.BOOK NOW.
