Best tapas in Newcastle and the decor is great too. Staff always friendly and those tempura prawns are unbelievable. Definitely worth a visit if your after a decent meal.

Not only the best tapas in the north east, but arguably best tapas in the U.K! I absolutely LOVE this place - delicious food and wine, fabulous staff, and traditional decor that gives the place an authentic feel. Great place for a date with your partner, or a ladies afternoon with friends.

Visited El Coto for my birthday with my hubby & friends. Never been for a while but weren't disappointed. We went for the set meal at £17.95 per head it was excellent. Good selection of tapas to share, only niggle we had was the prawn dish. Four prawns in a dish - one each!! Could have done with few more.... More

I was part of a large party for a birthday dinner on a very busy Saturday night. The staff were extremely accommodating and helpful to ensure our table had everything we needed including bringing out our birthday cake at the end. The quality of the food is second to none, so fresh, filling and tasty. Everyone in the party were... More

We have visited this restaurant a number of times now and have always found it delicious. We quite often have the set tapas meal for 2 and a jug of sangria. The tapas are great value for money. We would recommend this restaurant to anyone who loves Spanish food.

We wanted to visit an authentic Spanish Restaraunt and we found one in Newcastle. This was a very friendly place and the food was great, full of flavour. Our favourite food is paella and I cannot fault this. Only problem, we couldn't eat it all. This place is a hidden gem and is larger than you think when you first... More

First time having tapas and it was incredible. Beautiful food and great service. Waitress gave plenty of advice on how much to order and gave her preferences which we found very kind and helped us a lot. Great price for great food will definitely be returning.
