21’s cooking is big on flavour and short on fuss. We’re talking about a style which embraces the seasons and where the ingredients are king. Expect to find stylish, imaginative dishes – which don’t pander to fads or fashion…………and still have room for pudding. Expect a warm welcome, generous hospitality and service that is both friendly and correct.

A city centre restaurant with a city centre buzz. In the heart of Newcastle's Quayside, 21 has an excitement and warmth all of its own. Smart but not stuffy, sleek but not pretentious, fun but not gimmicky - It's about eating good food in comfortably stylish surroundings.

Menus include Lunch and Early Evening Fixed Price, Five Course Seasonal and à la Carte.

    Was a lovely meal and great serving stag that really looked after us. The only negative we had was we were presented with 2 x dessert wines that we hadn’t ordered. We both dislike dessert wines and were charged £13-80 for the privilege. Maybe worth dropping this practice, other than that a great night

    We've just had a fantastic dinner at Cafe21. We opted for the fixed-price menu, which at £36 for three courses was exceptional value for money. Everything we tried was delicious – especially the salmon rillette starter which was done really well! They have a great wine list too, so we were spoilt for choice. The staff at Cafe21 were just brilliant. They were super friendly and attentive throughout the whole meal. Even when our waiter asked us to move to the bar once we'd finished our meal to free up the table for another reservation, he was incredibly apologetic and kind about it.  He even offered us complimentary drinks on the house, which was a lovely touch. I run my own bistro so pay attention to how other people do things. I thought the whole service - from food to ambiance, service and presentation was really well done. The pricing is very fair for the quality and portion sizes we were served. I'm looking forward to coming back again soon.

    My son and I ordered from the lunch menu apart from one dessert, I can never resist the chocolate soufflé with caramel sauce and ice cream. We both had the confit of duck but we both agreed that the cheese wasn’t the best accompaniment for our taste, maybe a sauce for us would have been a better option.

    Excellent as always! I had duck confit with puy lentils and Roquefort salad. Delicious! I also had amalfi lemon tart. My friends all enjoyed their meals. Thoroughly enjoyable.

    Wife ordered filet mignon. Hardly able to chew. I tried it and agreed. Most left uneaten. Wife ordered chips and onion rings with filet mignon. Sent both back because they were limp and undercooked. When returned they were unchanged. Left without eating very many. I ordered from fixed menu. Food acceptable. Conclusion: Ala carte menu overpriced even if food had been acceptable. Wine very overpriced. We probably will not return anytime soon!
