The harbourside setting and quality food has made Silo a great venue for special occasions for many years. Based on our recent visit those days are well behind them. The menu is dull and uninspiring, accentuated by two of the three specials being already unavailable at 7.00pm. The kitchen is still using good quality produce but what they're doing with... More

Had lunch here recently, my oh my, what a disappointment. We had only a main meal each, this was enough for us to decide that we would probably not return. We ordered Ora King tea smoked salmon with salad of orange, hazelnuts & fennel, $26. We were advised that this MAIN meal was more of the size of an entrée... More

Came here for lunch on a Friday with my husband for his birthday. Several restaurants on offer along the harbour front but chose Silo as we had not been here before. We shared an entree of sourdough with dukka and oil/balsamic for dipping. The small dish was only half full of the oil and was no way enough to dip... More

Visited on a work trip - snapper fillet was beautifully cooked with the dressing adding the right amount of flavour, a bit too much cucumber but that is a personal preference. Fellow diner stated similar for their whole baby rainbow trout. Staff were pleasant and friendly and meal was delivered in a timely manner. Will visit again when in area... More

We had dinner before a show and at 6.15 were told the specials were sold out - with only five other mains and three with chilli or similar we started with a charcuterie board which was enjoyable but mainstream and opted for an entree each - the pork was dry and tasteless and the scallops smothered in a dry dressing...

Well over priced, very limited menu and service left a lot to be desired. Would not recommend it. There are a number of better restaurants in this area of Newcastle.

Overwhelmed by the number of places to dine, we picked Silos last Sunday for lunch. The restaurant is in a perfect position with lovely water views, sun and gentle breezes. The menu looked good with a lunch special of $25.00 plus a glass of wine or beer. Staff are super friendly and helpful, pity the food is not as good.... More
