We did the degustation with matched wines - which I would highly recommend. The meals were works of art and the matching of wines complimented the food. My only downfall was the dessert was sweet on sweet which I couldn't eat. As well as the...More

We came here for our anniversary dinner on recommendations from others & we weren't disappointed. The food was Ah-mazing! Only one dish was a little blah, the duck was dry but it wasn't terrible. Service was outstanding. Looking for an excuse to go back.

Newcastle isn't the first city you think of for quality food destinations. But I'm sure this lovely restaurant is helping to change that. The decor was FRENCH bistro inspired , the tables were far enough from each other so I didn't have the listen to...More

My partner eats a medium to large appetite and he felt satisfied by the end of the tasting menu. Tasting menu dishes are smallish, but we thought it was enough foo for the average man, & the quality was wonderful.
