Featured Gateshead Restaurants
1. Raval Luxury Indian Restaurant & Bar Indian restaurant in Gateshead Church Street, Gateshead Quays - NE8
2018 Review: Limited reports this year on this Gateshead Quays Indian with open kitchen, but feedback is all-round very good when it comes to its sophisticated cuisine and luxurious contemporary decor.
2. Trakol British, Modern restaurant in Gateshead Hillgate Quays - NE8
“Right on the banks of the Tyne, under the iconic Tyne Bridge, with some of the UKs best city views” – these “trendily laid-out, converted shipping containers” have “a fabulous setting” and are “quirky in every way”. “Start with a beer: there’s around 15 to choose from, many brewed on the premises, served in 1/3 and 2/3 measures (a good plan given the strength range, of 5%-10%)”. The food is “cooked in-view” in a ‘fiercely seasonal, open-fire kitchen’ and the fairly eclectic results are regularly outstanding: “mains were as good a meat as I’ve had. The Barnsley Chop was gargantuan, cooked with seafood (it works!). The whole lemon sole easily fed two, and was perfect”. The odd reporter does strike unlucky, though: “duck predicted as ‘tender’ wasn’t… steak and bone marrow was very salty yet vegetables were bland”.
3. Six, Baltic Centre for Contemporary Arts British, Modern restaurant in Gateshead Baltic (Sixth Floor), South Shore Road - NE8
“One of the best views in the world” (if you don't mind Newcastle’s urban sprawl) elevates a visit to this posh art gallery restaurant. It dodged the usual critiques it has often received last year, and although even some fans concede that “there is better-value food to be had in the city”, it was consistently well-rated (“creative without being silly”).
4. Eslington Villa Hotel British, Modern restaurant in Gateshead 8 Station Rd - NE9
2018 Review: “Convenient for Team Valley and Newcastle”, the “discrete” dining room of this stately Victorian hotel is a notably consistent sort of spot and “the set lunch menu is particularly good value”.
