As usual, a great, friendly atmosphere with wonderfully polite service and extremely helpful door-staff. Everything that a good night should be and a real variety of age groups, from old swingers like myself to the young and hip.and Cannot recommend highly enough.

I have ate a lot of places in Darlington and surrounding areas! Love Mexican food too! But this place takes the biscuit because it is bloody beautiful! Literally the nicest food I've had in a very long time! How this place hasn't constantly got queues out of the door I'll never know! Loved everything about it! I'm full but I... More

My sons and girlfriends came to what is already my favourite venue and we were all very impressed by the service and the food. The waitress took the time to advise us and was helpful and friendly. The food lived up to her descriptions and made for an enjoyable evening. We then went down to join in with the regular... More

Been several times to Voodoo cafe over the years, which says a lot about the food, which is fantastic. However, my latest visit was a disappointment. Very slow service, and when the main meals did arrive several of our party did not receive their meals & had to wait an additional half hour for it to be cooked. Orders were... More

The Tuesday lunch menu includes a special of Tacos. They were delicious. If I was in town on a Tuesday I'd be eating here at lunchtime!! Usual warm and friendly welcome and of course, arguably the best coffee in town.

This is one of my favourite venues. We often drop in in the afternoon for a coffee but we had not eaten there for a while. I chose the Voodoo for my birthday meal and we were certainly not disappointed! Excellent food, fantastic atmosphere and friendly and knowledgeable staff. They also do amazing cocktails!

The food is always special, always fresh and super tasty. Lovely atmosphere, very easy to get in my wheelchair but no disabled toilets.

ONCE AGAIN, this venue is the place that I enjoy the most when having a night out in Darlington. Where else can you find a restaurant, a well stocked bar, quiet seating areas and a separate room playing live music!? I had to laugh at a previous reviewer's comments on her views about Latin American food. Clearly, she has no... More
