Zio bar is attached to Fratello’s restaurant on Jesmond Road, Jesmond, and is easily accessible from Osborne Road by walking, or Bus and Metro Links. Regular readers may recall my original Zio Bar post which was written back in April when I first visited, we were so impressed with this visit that we decided to pop back for more food and less alcohol!
At the time of our visit Zio bar were still offering £3 cocktails and we both decided it was too good an offer to pass on.
I decided to go for a Classic Mojito which consists of Havana Club Especial rum, churned with fresh lime, mint and crushed ice topped with soda water
Mr Gourmand had the Stormy Mojito which consisted of Gosling Black rum and ginger beer.
Both drinks were very refreshing and a complete bargain at £3 each!
I ordered the Chicken Burger which was moist and succulent, it was a whole butterflied chicken breast so was very filling. The burger was served with hand cut chips and salsa. I did find the chips a little dry which I think was possibly down to them being twice or maybe even thrice cooked.
Mr Gourmand ordered the Bacon Burger which was served with handcut chips and tomato salsa, the burger itself was delicious and was polished off in record time.
If you want a night out in Jesmond and would rather avoid Osborne Road or are looking for a quiet drink before heading into the city centre I highly recommend Zio Bar.
