Café 21

Trinity Gardens, Quayside, Newcastle upon Tyne, Tyne and Wear, NE1 2HH
Part of the excellent group of restaurants owned by Terry Laybourne and although styling itself along the lines of a bistro, the menu and the food on offer has much higher aims - although dishes are, refreshingly, simply presented.

Expect the likes of 'Goats' Cheese Tart with Onion, Artichoke and Beetroot Salad'; 'Six Rock Oysters with Hot Chorizo Sausage' and 'Warm Salad of Duck Confit, Braised Red Onions and Truffle Dressing' among the starters.

Perhaps to be followed by 'Fillet of Monkfish with Mussel and Leek Broth'; 'Aberdeen Angus Ribeye, Herb Butter, Chips and Salad' or 'Slow-Cooked Shoulder of Pork with Braised White Cabbage, Black Pudding Mash and Crisp Crackling'.

Desserts are again simple, but perfectly cooked - with maybe 'Crème Brulée'; 'Treacle Tart' or 'Warm Chocolate Bouchon with Sour Cherry Compote and Vanilla Ice Cream'.

The more savoury-toothed might be tempted by their selection of farmhouse cheeses.

Friendly, efficient service.
