Tried the calamari, was very happy due to the fact that sometimes it can be tough /rubbery, this was cooked just right. The steak I had was tender & cooked to my liking. Dessert was good, excellent profiter balls. Overall certainly worth trying.

Visited today party of 8. Three children under 7 with us. Walked in firstly the noise from the music hit me it was too loud. My granddaughter who wears hearing aids was upset because she could not hear her mum for the noise. Staff could not hear us properly as music was too loud and we could not really have a family chat over the table. Food was very nice but not impressed by the staff think they forgot how to wait on tables and which side to approach you from. I know it was very busy but the staff were just not very friendly.

spent the weekend at Whitley bay and called into sambucas friday evening , the place was buzzing a great atmosphere and the food was beautiful . All the staff were lovely from the girl who was greeting downstairs to all the waiting and serving staff upstairs . Great quality food which our party of 4 all enjoyed at Really Good prices , a massive selection of dishes all well presented. It was that good we took my brother and his wife there for lunch on Sunday which again was Fabulous . A real Jem thank you . We will be back next time we are down the coast for sure , and wish you were just around the corner from us
