We were strolling along the Main Street of Newcastle looking for a spot for dinner when we came upon Vanilla. From the outside it's relatively understated, and we pondered whether or not to give it a go. I'm very glad we did! Everything about the meal was fabulous. The staff were friendly and close by but not on top of... More

Having not been in Newcastle for a long time we were recommended to try Vanilla for lunch. We were not disappointed, with my chicken and warm deep fried Brie sandwich, and my wife's rare beef sandwich particular highlights. Service was prompt, attentive, and professional (but without being fussy or intrusive). All in all, it was easy to see why they... More

Hi could you please remove this review and their photographs as they have made a mistake, this is not our restaurant they are talking about nor is it photographs of our restaurant and we definitely do not have duck and orange sauce on our menu. your prompt response on this would be greatly appreciated.

Got a very last minute reservation here last Saturday night and were we glad we did. Being late in the evening we went straight for the main course.

After a great day golfing in Newcastle we called into Vanilla about 6pm without a reservation on a Sunday night .The restaurant manager could not have been more helpful and managed to squeeze us in before the 7pm bookings if we could be finished by 7ish. A really nice gentleman .The food and service were excellent . Really good selection... More

We went for my grandmas 88th birthday with ages ranging from 22-88years old. Excellent menu with a wide variety of dishes each one as tasty as the next. The staff could not have been more friendly, accommodating and polite. Would definitely recommend to any one I know going to newcastle.

My wife and I only came across this restaurant 2 years ago, we have spent several years visiting Annalong, and never have been disappointed with service or choice. The staff have always been most welcoming and accommodating. Highly recommended, book well ahead of time !

Have visited this restaurant for a meal on three occasions and was delighted with all the food each time. The flavour and variety of food was excellent. The early bird menu is also great value. I would recommend this restaurant highly.

We actually came upon this restaurant via our daughter, who told us.... it was lovely! Hubby & I, being out for a drive one Saturday a few months back, arrived in Newcastle and decided to have a coffee. I suddenly remembered this place being recommended, and decided to give it a try. As we were actually booked to meet up... More

on a drizzly day, Vanilla was a friendly haven. The room is tastefully decorated, love the bronze globe lights and the wallpaper. I had a beef and squid salad, both were perfectly tender and full of flavour. Partner had a chicken slider with chunky chips which was also delicious. The service was good and the manager made sure we were... More
