First visit and thoroughly enjoyed the experience.
The food was beautifully cooked and the menu selection was excellent.
Good ambiance if you like sitting on bar stools and the service was very good.
Will be back.

I have already recommended this to a lot of friends and family. If you like sea food there is no better place to eat.

Unique as the only true fish restaurant in Newcastle, aspires to greatness but unfortunately the signature dish we ordered was a gross dissapointment , the alaskan crab was cold/luke warm in one half and warm to middling in the other, you should budget 75 pounds per person for a meal with wine here

An unusual venue for Newcastle upon Tyne; it felt a bit like one of the posh London stores (Harrods, Harvey Nick's). Overall, an enjoyable experience if a bit on the expensive side even with the current discount.

Fantastic service. All of the staff were very friendly and had the balance perfectly right between talking to us and making sure we had everything we needed, as well as leaving us to have our own conversations.
Absolutely delicious food! The recommendation of the trio of oysters when we were trying to decide which to have was a good one, especially when given the tasting notes alongside them. We then shared the mixed seafood grill and two to the small platters, squid tempura and fish gougons with an Asian dipping sauce, with sides of fries and samphire. The fish were succulent, the tempura batter beautifully light, and the Asian dipping sauce was full of fresh flavours.
Will definitely be back.

Our first visit.
My wife and I shared 4 " small plates".
All meals were very good - but the portion sizes are pretty small.
Excellent service.
A great dining experience but poor value for money IMO.

Difficult circumstances, but welcoming and pleasant staff (as usual).

Delicious fresh, high quality fish.

Too quiet for it to be commercially successful, so more customers needed.

Myself and my partner came to our favourite restaurant for our first lock down date and as usual it didn’t disappoint! Food was outstanding. Service was fantastic. I was so pleased we managed to all social distance and sit on the bar so we could watch the chefs cook! Shout out to the lovely young waitress with the long brunette hair in a bun, she was so lovely! Thanks again and we can’t wait to return 😊

Made a lunchtime reservation to celebrate our daughter's graduation. Couldn't fault the food, had a selection of hot & cold small plates (squid tempura & mixed seafood cocktail) & large plates of extra large king prawns in chilli butter & moules frites. All washed down with prosecco, champagne & Meantime beer!

One of my favourite restaurants in Newcastle. The food and service is always fantastic and the staff are very skilled at what they do. Since covid we have missed this restaurant very much and our first visit back since they reopened was much better than expected, the restaurant was spacious and felt safe, you could easily keep your distance from all other diners and the service from the staff and quality of the food was still fantastic as Always.

We can’t wait to visit again!

3rd day of opening after lockdown and things were very well organised, staff very attentive and felt comfortable. Quieter than usual given the circumstances but didn't spoil the dining experience. Food was amazing and staff so friendly. Thanks again Saltwater Seafood Co. will see you again very soon.
