This is a family run business which is well established. It's a hidden gem, with scrumptious offerings, friendly staff and children are welcome. Can't highly recommend a visit enough. Top Marks!

After winning a prize a while back I decided to book for lunch. I guess I went with high expectations and felt a bit let down. The restaurant looked "tired" it was grubby, smelt a bit like old pub and needed a bit of TLC....More

Came during Restaurant Week, £10 for two courses. The fish cake starter was lovely and the pork chop main was fine. My bugbear... its meant to be discounted during Restaurant Week and yet they offer two courses daily for £8.95

Have visited a number of times but something has gone wrong. Waited a ridiculous length of time for drinks then had poor experience of food. Lunch set menu less choice than previous and standard of food poor. Disappointed.More

Paradiso Newcastle - NORTH EAST RESTAURANT OF THE YEAR 2016 As voted by the Food Awards England. One of those restaurants you'll discover by word of mouth rather than by walking past, Paradiso is a local family run restaurant that has been a mainstay on the Newcastle gastro scene for 20 years. Tucked away down Market Lane, Paradiso is a hidden treasure. The restaurant is split into three main floors. The first floor, which is also the main seating floor seats up to 60, has a bar and a spacious outdoor terrace for alfresco dining. The second floor contains the open-plan kitchen and another seating area, which is able to seat up to 50. This floor is smaller than the first floor, but is still capable of holding large parties with ease, and again, we can accommodate parties of any size and number. If you require more privacy, our third floor is a private dining room which can seat up to 45. As this room features skylights, it is a bright, warm space and is spacious enough to be used for any kind of event, such as dining, presentations and so on.
