Café Andaluz

Fairly new to Grey’s Street, Café Andaluz has fast become a popular destination for food lovers. The Spanish restaurant is a lovely escape from the northern breeze, given the Geordies a taste of Spain. The establishment is a favourite amongst our Spanish residents in Toon, with lunchtime offers hard to beat. From everyones favourite Patatas Bravas to a Spanish delicacy Paella Tapa, escape from your day-to-day and enjoy a short getaway at Café Andaluz.






Looking to tuck into classic Spanish tapas? Then look no further than Kaltur. You simply can’t beat the fresh, fragrant and flavoursome dishes from this foodie hot spot. The avocado, tomato and Mediterranean prawn tartar with salmorejo is a fan favourite from the menu. With two city-centre locations, one on Dean Street, the other on High Bridge, you’ll be spoilt for choice. 




Tootle on over to Grey Street and treat your tastebuds to the finest tapas around. From panko roasted chicken and serrano ham croquettes and belly pork and shiitake mushrooms in a sweet chilli sauce to garlic mushrooms and pulled oxtail and parmigiano creamy risotto - there’s something to satisfy everyone.
