We wre staying in a friends apartment above the restaurant and so thought we would try it out. We were disapopinted. But before I give details and have to credit the staff member at the cash register when I paid who asked for feedback. When I confirmed that he was after genuine feedback I told him nicely my views and... More

We have dined at Silo many times, for both lunch and dinner, and we have never been disappointed. The chef has obviously put a lot of thought into the menu, with some unusual but very agreeable taste combinations. Personal favourites are the charcuterie board entree and the whole baby trout, spectacular with a nice crisp verdelho! A bit on the... More

I attended dinner at Silo with a business associate and was thoroughly disappointed. Ordered a cocktail to start which was the highlight of the dining experience. I started with the duck which was an extremely poor dish, followed by the scallops for a main which was utterly repugnant and inedible. I can easily say it is the worst dish I... More

We were walk ins on a relatively busy night and were seated inside. We could still see the waterside and people watching up and down the boardwalk is always fun. Service was good, we were seated quickly, orders taken promptly and there was follow up as the meal progressed. The drinks list had enough for any preference and the order... More

We arrived early for lunch and were happy to plonk down on the provided lounges for a pre-meal larger overlooking the harbour. Waitress was happy, polite, friendly and prompt - cant ask for more. Once seated, the menu is not overly complex and the food followed the order in short term. All in our group were pleased with our food.... More

I ordered the lunch salt and pepper squid, it was too rubbery for my liking and the salad that comes with it, isn't my cup of tea. I'm a little simple with my food likes, so take this for what it is. It's a little too high brow for me, unlikely to be back as it doesn't suit me, but... More

Nice to see Newcastle has some great new restaurants along the waterfront. We were up for the weekend and purchased a Groupon deal for 4 at $75 - what a bargain and then to top it off the food was well presented and very nice and tasty. We had two bar share plates (tempura prawns with ailoi, vege springs rolls... More

Came across this restaurant as a first time visitor to Newcastle. Felt like fish and they offered snapper so it was a done deal. The meal arrived promptly and the snapper was to die for! The salad underneath the snapper was also very tasty. Money well spent.
