A restaurant that is what it looks like since the beginning. Cold and empty. Service pretty poor, it looked like everyone was focus on chatting more than serving the 3 tables in the restaurant. Nobody checked the satisfaction and no question were made when we left more than half main in the plate, especially the supervisor. We ordered a dessert... More

I visited this restaurant after having a girly spa day with my sisters at the Ocean Rooms Spa. We booked afternoon tea with fizz and it was gorgeous! The staff were friendly and attentive and made us feel welcome. Despite it being early and the restaurant being very quiet we didn't feel like the staff were hovering over us either!... More

We have dined here often and I love sitting by the windows watching the trains on the High Level Bridge. The food is very good and service excellent

I been at the hotel many many times and the food never gets better. The Thai comes with more water than a soup. The chicken is dry. The duck tastes really bad. The burgers is just ok. The chips not great as well. Pasta comes usually overcooked. The wines by glass are cheap and you can tell it straight away.... More

The hotel restaurant of the Hilton Newcastle Gateshead, the Windows on the Tyne restaurant offers average food at hotel pricing, complemented by a view that is nothing short of wonderful. The breakfast buffet is well stocked in the mornings, with traditional english breakfast staples, and is solid fare (albeit at hotel pricing). I loved the consistency and the 2-3 day... More

We ate there while staying at the Hilton Hotel. The food and service were very good but it's a bit expensive for what it is. Ask for a table by the window so that you see the Tyne.

Expensive afternoon tea, food average and not a lot of it for the price, plus £6 to park in car park (non refundable) for the privilege definitely not worth it.

Visited on 9th July 2016 for my grandma's birthday. There was four of us in the party, three ordered the Champagne Tea £21.95 and one the gluten free option £15.95 (impressed they did one and had rang in advance to check when we booked). We asked if we could get the champagne with the gluten free meal and were told,... More
