I have been to this restaurant three times or more with my daughter and each time the food is delicious and the service is great. I would highly recommend it.

My husband and I were celebrating our anniversary, and had once again forgot to book anywhere! We arrived at Customs House and although they were fairly booked there we managed to grab a table in the courtyard. It was quite busy there with a function also but staff were attentive and kept the area neat. Bonus there was a live soloist Which wasn't too loud and it really added to the atmosphere. We ordered our meals which were fairly quick to arrive considering how busy it was. The prawns with avocado and gazpacho as an entree were superb, And a great start to what was a very enjoyable meal and evening out.

What better way to spend a few hours on a balmy summers evening than to sit on the verandah of customs house and watch the comings and goings on newcastle harbour .The food that compliments this setting is first class from the succulent sydney rock oysters and the king prawn and avocado starters to the exellent steaks and the snapper ! this is a must have .Our group included four teenagers who went for the fish and chips and the pasta with meat balls ,only to have the adults fighting to finish their leftovers they were so delicious.Some how we managed to share desserts which included an amazing chocolate souffle and semi freddo.The night we visited an exellent soloist played was playing, she had a great play list which added nicely to the atmosphere.Keep up the good work customs!,

Great lunch on the terrace. Attentive friendly staff who get the balance just right and anticipate your needs. My Aunt was allowed to try the wine beforehand to check it was not too dry. I like to see a restaurant with a short menu done well. Excellent fish great side of green beans and a lovely dessert of strawberry Eton mess. Good view and pleasant breeze what better way to spend Tuesday lunchtime in Newcastle.
