It was decent. The food is very tasty and the presentation is nice but it feels a bit too expensive vs amount you get, even for a Tapas setting. The house Sangria had potential, however it was a bit watery. Service was fine, however we wern't offered specials (it was quiet), although the table next to us was, no more... More

All meals I have thoroughly enjoyed at Bocados. They are authentic and delicious, and the service level of the staff is incredible. Highly recommended for a couples dinner

We arrived late in Newcastle and found this nice restaurant. The tapas are a bit expensive but the taste is good. Sangria was also good and the service was perfect.

We didn't make a booking for our Saturday night dinner but we had an hour before the pre-booked table was needed, so that was fine by us. The restaurant lacks airconditioning which was needed and the ceiling fans next to useless. The noise level was pretty bad also. However, the food was pretty good. We ordered the special of pate...

Of been wanting to go here for some time, and the food certainly didn't let me down. Great tapas place, excellent choice of dishes to share, nice service. Even the olives were particularly nice.

Booked a table. Great welcome, plenty of smiles, excellent service, and awesome (and filling) tapas. No tiny portions here. Pretty new to Newcastle so doing the rounds for the first time. Clear winner so far.

This place was always a favorite and have reviewed favorably before however it's just not the same. We dined on a Sunday night and were very disappointed with the food, nothing in particular, just not the "wow" factor that it once had. Prices and portion sizes have also changed, and not for the better. Bad start to the evening when... More

I picked this restaurant due to the rating on TripAdvisor. But unfortunately, the meal was ok! The Paolella was ok, but not that flavoursome. Have had much nicer Paolellas. Garlic prawns ok, deserts ok. I would not recommend people to go to Bocados, but if someone booked, I would go there again happily. Reasonable restaurant, but not above average.
