There are so many restaurants on the Sunderland seafront and Sunderland in general, it makes me feel they take advantage of the location, rather than the cuisine.
My friend lives in Seaburn so it is very convenient and free parking when you can find it. We came last year and the food was average but the atmosphere was great and the restaurant packed. Although there are some very bad tables, next to the door – prepared to get knocked, shoved in the window – draughty, next to the toilets –say no more. If you do go, argue to get a better table.
The difference in 12 months is on a Friday night it was only a quarter full. Service was non existent. Huge usual Italian menu plus some blackboard specials. My friend had some meagre garlic mushrooms; I had some defrosted, tasteless scallops. We both then had the sea bass special which was slathered in garlic sauce. The vegetables were too overcooked to eat and the potatoes (frozen and fried) were about the best thing.
2 starters, 2 mains, 2 glasses of house white and a bottle of water for £45.
I feel like a school teacher saying “could do better”
