Cabana

Cabana recently got in touch to invite us to try their new restaurant that has opened just next to The Gate in Newcastle. With new restaurants popping up all the time in the city centre, does this one stand out from the crowd? We were running soooooooooo late for our dinner reservation at 7pm. We … Continue reading Cabana

Dabbawal

We were invited for an evening of fun Indian dining at Dabbawal. This is how we got on... Before I started dating my husband, I never really ate Indian food. If I got a takeaway it would always be Chinese, and I'd never go to an Indian restaurant over an Italian restaurant. Now though, times … Continue reading Dabbawal

The Botanist

The Botanist is the newest, sleekest eating and drinking establishment in the city centre, and it doesn't get much more central by overlooking Grey's Monument. I'd visited when it first opened for a press day with work, and gushed about how cool the interior looked. When their 50% January voucher appeared, I knew it had … Continue reading The Botanist

A friendly voice greeted me on the other end and said "no problem". When we arrived, the … Continue reading Haveli

When I asked for suggestions for dining in Tynemouth, two fellow food bloggers Taste of the North and Sugar Rushed recommended the same place - Allard's Lounge. Well, if both of them recommended it, it must be … Continue reading Allard’s Lounge

The Living Room

I can't believe that I've lived in Newcastle for so long and have never eaten at The Living Room. Needless to say, I loved it. We decided to go with another couple and take advantage of their Newcastle Restaurant Week offer a few weeks ago. It was a sunny Saturday afternoon, not like today with … Continue reading The Living Room
