Reviewed July 18, 2011

Spent evening here on 15.07.11. Busy and lively atmosphere, great views over quayside but indifferent food at inflated prices. Overall conclusion? Pretentious!

“Great 18th anniversary experience-great food/service”
Reviewed June 17, 2011

Great customer service which is unique for most Newcastle dining. Great food/atmosphere. Bar area was nice as we waited for our reservation which was right on time. We were asked several times for drinks as well. Very impressed overall.
Best food and experience we have tried around NE England. You will not be dissapointed. Great local Beers and mixed drinks. Steaks were awesome! Thanks to the service and staff for a great evening.
Great experience compared to a fiasco we had at the Black Friars we had in June.

“Gorgeous food, lovely atmosphere, excellent night”
Reviewed May 13, 2011

Myself and my partner noticed this restaurant on the Quayside one weekend earlier and it looked nice... rest assured it was one of best meals in Newcastle!

We entered the restaurant from the quayside front and it had a very classy and grand enterance it had the look of boudeur as we entered the building and worked our way up to the stairs there the decoration was dark but classy and elegant rather than light and airy, there was a bar one side and the restaurant the other.

We where welcomed by the staff and then seen to our seat in a very quiet warm, dark but with candle light and low roof lighting which was very different to normal restaurants but added to the whole atmosphere and made it more satisfying.

The food was absolultely gorgeous and we both got an respectable size of meal, (not all you can eat, but not ultra al la carte where you have nothing), im an average eater and 3 courses filled me fine, my girlfriend couldnt handle a desert.

Will definetly go again as it was a lovely albeit slightly expensive night with the drinks as well but was a rememberable visit.

“Sunday Lunch is a 'Hidden Gem'”
Reviewed May 8, 2011

Our 3rd visit to this restaurant. Couldn't understand why more people dont use the 'Toast to the Roast' 2 for £30 offer. For this price two people enjoy 2 courses PLUS a bottle of wine for Sunday Lunch. The food is excellent and beautifully served, the service is also good and to have the wine waiter explain the source and detail of the wine is brilliant.

“Great night out, thanks!”
Reviewed April 12, 2011

We often come to Malmaison bar for dinner. As usual the food is nice and the different type of atmosphere makes it an enjoyable night. The drink service could be improved but otherwise we will be back.
