Revolución de Cuba Newcastle - Review

There is a new restaurant in town and I've been to check it out and give you the all the information you need to know! 

Revolución de Cuba, situated just off Newcastle's famous bigg market on Cloth Market. A tiny little side street that I had to double check twice on the map as I couldn't believe the restaurant was there! 

Matty and I walked in and instantly felt like we were on holiday. Bright lights, lots of colour and a room full of happy people, taking us both back to the Carribean. Neither of us have been to Cuba but we've both been to the Caribbean quite a few times and if only the air con was off to make the restaurant  warmer it really could have transported us there!

We were shown to our table while there was a live gutatist and given some tortilla chips to nibble on while we looked through the menus. 

Of course we went straight for the cocktail list and it was huge and I initially thought there were on the slight expensive side, but the cocktails were massive so I did think they were worth it and probably better value then most places in Newcastle. 

Matty went for the Reggae Rum Punch £8.75 (left) and I went for the Miami Vice £8.65 (right), both fruity and delicious.

I honestly couldn't pick what food to have, there was so much on the menu that I wanted to try which has already got me excited to return! 

To begin with Matty and I went for some tapas to share.

Halloumi Tacos £5.75, I don't recommend you share these as they are delicious, keep them all for yourself!

Patatas Bravas £5.00, my all time favourite tapas dish, the spicy tomato sauce was complimented nicely with the garlic aïoli. 

Nachos de Sol £5.75, Nachos as possibly my all time favourite food at the moment and these did not disappoint! 

As the starters were so delicious I couldn't wait for the main course to arrive and we were both in for a real treat! For 3 tapas it was £14. 

I never can get enough Halloumi, for my main I ordered the Halloumi Wrap £8.25, delicious Halloumi wrapped in smoky salsa, lettuce, black beans, peppers, goat's cheese with a honey dressing served with chips. I was little unsure about the goat's cheese been included within the wrap but it all worked so well. 

And my fiancé order the chicken and guacamole burrito £10, which I know he enjoyed immensely. I did steal a few of his tortilla chips as they just taste so good. 

We rounded off the meal with another round of cocktails, who needs pudding anyway?  

I was blown away by how good the food, service and cocktails were, the only downside was how cold the restaurant was, I had to put my coat back on. Aside from the cold I can't wait to go back. 

Is there anywhere else new in Newcastle that I should try?

*We got our first round of cocktails and food in exchange for review, as always, my views are my own and honest.
