About the restaurant
21’s cooking is big on flavour and short on fuss. We’re talking about a style which embraces the seasons and where the ingredients are king. Expect to find stylish, imaginative dishes – which don’t pander to fads or fashion…………and still have room for pudding. Expect a warm welcome, generous hospitality and service that is both friendly and correct.

A city centre restaurant with a city centre buzz. In the heart of Newcastle's Quayside, 21 has an excitement and warmth all of its own. Smart but not stuffy, sleek but not pretentious, fun but not gimmicky - It's about eating good food in comfortably stylish surroundings.

Menus include Lunch and Early Evening Fixed Price, Five Course Seasonal and à la Carte.

About the restaurant
The French Quarter is a relaxed neighbourhood restaurant & wine Bar in a community of unique and quirky businesses in Newcastle city Centre. We are a friendly and approachable team of people, with a passion for the good things in life. Born from nostalgia for a traditional style of commerce and a desire to challenge perceptions that French dining is formal or fussy, we work with independent suppliers to offer a regularly changing wine list & tapas style menu. We have created a casual and sociable environment where customers are invited to experience our food, try our wines, shop from our deli and share our love of all things French!

A beautiful building, lovely atmosphere and the staff were very friendly in both the bar area and the restaurant. The Sunday lunch was the best we've had for a long time. We each had a starter, 1 fishcake, 1 scotch egg, both great but not really needed as the main was really enough. The beef, 1 pink and 1 well done was amazing. And the Yorkshire puddings, home made and enormous, I'd definitely recommend a visit.

Another wonderful meal, with the customary great service. I opted for the sirloin this time, rather than the fillet or chateaubriand, it was extremely tasty and perfectly cooked. The dessert, Don Pedro, which consists of cream, rum and walnuts was divine. The service deserves a special mention - it is always friendly and polite; this branch clearly has a great customer service ethos that can’t be beaten.
