Most residents of Killingworth will head to nearby Newcastle if they are planning a night out as the city has a thriving nightlife thanks to its numerous bars, pubs, clubs and restaurants so dining out options are less limited here. The exclusive quayside area has many award winning restaurants where you can choose from a variety of different cuisines while the city centre has many eating establishments to suit all tastes and preferences including international chains like Nandos and McDonalds. There are also many national publican chains like Harvester and Wheatsheaf for those who prefer quality food in a comfortable and casual environment.
There are several Italian restaurants in the city that come nightly recommended for pasta lovers visiting the city. These include Casa Antonio in nearby Longbenton, and Lativa which has been established in the area for over twenty years and promises a menu to suit all budgets and requirements. This offers great home cooked Italian food with very reasonably priced daily specials available for both lunch and evening dinning which make it perfect for those on a budget. It also promises a very family-friendly environment so kids are always welcome and there is a children’s menu available to accommodate them too. The staff are warm and friendly too, providing a professional, helpful and courteous service that is second to none. For those who prefer Greek cuisine, the Amici is a Greek Restaurants in the heart of the city that delivers classic cuisine combined with a traditional Mediterranean ambience. The Brassiere Black Door is situated in the same area and offers a wide selection of French cuisine while the Moji on New Bridge Street is one of the city’s favourite Chinese restaurants. There are also over a dozen other Chinese, Thai and Indian restaurants in the area for those who enjoy Asian cuisine.
At the top end of the scale you will find the likes of the Malmaisson Newcastle, which is situated in the elite Quayside area of the city. This has won multiple awards for its hotel and facilities include its superb waterfront brassiere where diners can enjoy spectacular views of the river Tyne and the renowned Millennium Bridge while experiencing the ultimate in French Cuisine. Close by, you will also find the exclusive Gusto Italian Restaurant which is also situated on the Quayside. This also offers beautiful scenery and an opulent ambience with excellent service even on busy weekend nights when the restaurant is often fully booked during peak periods so advance reservation would be prudent for those who wish to dine here. However despite its luxurious feel and décor, the prices are actually very reasonable so you can experience five star dining at a three star price. The menu includes all your pizza and pasta favourites as well as a great selection of meat and fish, starters and desserts. I am reliably informed that those with a sweet tooth should keep some space after their starter and main to indulge in the sticky toffee pudding that comes highly recommended.
