The food is plenty and amazing, the service is friendly and warm. The view overlooks the river wear which may not sound pleasing on the eye, but I like it. The cost is cheap - average and it probably tables about 40-50 people so is quiet small, which I think gives it the homely feel.
Favorite Dish: Chicken ripiero - A ball of chicken with ham and motzarella cheese in the centre.mmmmm
Here you have a splendid viev of the beach and the north sea just imagine this its the middle of winter blowing a gale and raining outside ,but you are inside its warm and your having your favourite food with your loved one looking out you can see the waves crashing some 10-20 feet into the air
Favorite Dish: All of it possibly pasta carbonara washed down with a bottle of red.
Situated on a beachfront location at Seaburn in Sunderland it is a friendly family run restauraunt on an evening you can enjoy your meal in comfort while watching the waves rolling into shore only meters away
Favorite Dish: I just love the spaghetti bols and boy do these brothers know how to cook it in fact I love all the pastas that they serve here they do a superb seafood one which I especially recommend
The waterfront cafe is a good spot for a cup of tea and a scone overlooking the sea. They do more substantial meals too, and a full range of drinks from the bar. There are one or two other places to eat and drink along the seafron here too.
The "Throwing Stones" restaurant in the National Glass Centre is one of the best in the North East, probably the best in Sunderland and definitely (according to their own press!) one of the top 200 in the UK. The menu was really good, and the veggie dishes we had were exemplary.
Friday and Saturday evenings is Live Jazz.
Favorite Dish: Butter Bean & Spinach soup with a crouton.
Char-grilled Aubergine topped with roasted tomatoes, grilled goats cheese and glazed with a sweet pink peppercorn sause. Served with leaves.
