New Years Eve / Prima Quayside: Review

Happy New Year Lovelies!! I hope you had the best time celebrating the arrival of 2016 with your loved ones. I think I say this every year BUT....this year has gone so fast! And I don't know about you but all I seem to be talking about is where to go in the Summer. Have you got any plans yet?

I spent my New Years Eve in Newcastle with my boyfriend, one of my best friends and her boyfriend. We went for a meal at Prima down the quayside and watch the fireworks at midnight. I have always wanted to watch the fireworks down the quayside at NY, as I had heard so many good things about them. I have to admit, I was not let down at all. The fireworks went off between the Tyne Bridge and The Millennium Bridge ,the atmosphere was great and they were crowds of people sharing the moment with us. The fireworks were excellent and you didn't need a pass or wristband, it was absolutely free. WINNER! The fireworks were on for about 5 minutes and I would honestly highly recommend going to see them next year if you're looking for something different to do.

We decided to go for a meal very last minute and I thought I would never get a table for around 10 o'clock ringing the day before, but luckily enough I managed to get one at Prima. Prima is a Italian restaurant on the quayside, I have been a number of times but not for a while so I was looking forward to it. Although our seats weren't the best in the restaurant the food and drinks definitely make up for it. Everyone commented on how cheap and the wide variety of options Prima had to offer. Click HERE to view their menu. As you can see from the pictures above everyone went for something a little different. I went for the 'Pollo Farcito' which entailed of chicken stuffed with bufala mozzarella, wrapped in parma ham with roasted peppers and spinach in a cream sauce. It was DIVINE. The only downfall was it didn't come with any potatoes or chips on the side and I wasn't asked by a member of staff if I would like any. Nevertheless, we were very pleased with our service especially on NYE, food and drinks were served quickly considering it was a very busy restaurant. We can't thank Prima enough for making our meal and NYE enjoyable. I can't wait to pay this restaurant again soon. 

If you are wanting to try this restaurant out for yourself, just a little tip when you ring up and book a table. Ask to be seated in the back room. Prima restaurant is under the old high level bridge and the back room features alot of the original decor and the most notably one been the stone arch. It really does make your meal experience that extra bit special. 

Overall, I had a lovely NYE and enjoyed doing something a little bit different to just going to a local bar or a house party. 

Do you do anything exciting for NYE?

Have you got any plans for the Summer already?

Let me know by commenting below. I would love to hear from you

Lots of love
