Sat lunch here is a must. Fantastic location brilliant service and a Kitchen that knows what food is all about. I had the mussels which were plump and perfectly cooked in a fabulous tomato broth with baby spinach. A bowl of fries with this dish as opposed to a thimble of fries would have been perfect as would be the case in Normandy France or Brussels, but never the less a perfect dish. My wife had fish of the day Salmon, again perfectly cooked with great flavours in fish vegetables an sauce. Well done Chef well done front of house we will be back.

Great place, relaxing, people friendly and helpful, food really good. Would be nice to have a slightly larger menu though.

On recommendation we visited Silo on a autumn Friday evening. We were told to book to ensure we got a table however there was plenty of room on this occasion.

Service was just right and both the food and wine menu very varied. We chose 2 courses to start with and enjoyed our wine while we waited. The entree came in suitable time and was very enjoyable - gnocchi and scampi - the right size and very fresh. We then waited about an hour for our mains, both were red meat, but certainly not cooked well done. It was delicious however and allowed us to of course have more wine.

The dessert menu again was varied and we had trouble choosing just 2 items to share. Timing was back to acceptable and both desserts were divine - chocolate pudding and creme brulee.

We will be back but will be aware to leave plenty of time to savour our dinner at Silo.

We wanted a nice night out in Newcastle and this is what we had when we dinner at Silo. The food was well presented and value for money. We enjoyed three courses and every course arrived on time. The staff were attentive but a smile or two would not have hurt. We will return to Silo and I look forward to enjoying the tortellini again.

Went there on Friday nite with friends. I find the food here always good, I had the pumpkin ricotta tortalini and the lamb saddle and they were very tasty. The only problem I have with this restaurant is the lighting - way too dim. I don't mind mood lighing but you need to be able to see what you are eating let. Dining should be more than just taste and if you really can't see because of the poor lighting. The views are fantastic. All in all I have been to this restaurant several times and have never been disappointed in the quality of the food.
