10th Best Restaurant in Middlesbrough according to Trip Advisor, Bistrot Pierre

#10. Bistrot Pierre
93-100 Albert Road, Middlesbrough, TS1 2PA

Offering great value french cooking and seasonal menus, situated across from Middlesbrough Town Hall making it the ideal spot for a pre-performance dinner, the restaurant celebrated its first anniversary in Middlesbrough earlier this year. 

Now established as a firm favourite with locals, including my better blog-half, The Northernist, Bistrot Pierre sits at number 10 on the TripAdvisor list. 

A recently review from 'Sue' commented; 

"My husband and I visit this restaurant on pretty much a weekly basis.

9th best restaurant in Middlesbrough according to Trip Advisor Fellinis

#9. Fellinis
325 Linthorpe Road, Middlesbrough, TS5 6AA 

The award winning Fellini's Restaurant & Bar has been "proudly championing Teesside produce and suppliers and people for over 17 years."

With plenty appetising options on the menu, from Pizza to Pasta to Steaks, and of course our local favourite Parmo, choosing what to have can quickly become a difficult choice. 

But if you take the hint from Dylan, you should go for the seafood;

"Went for a birthday and it was fantastic. 

"I honestly think it's the best seafood in the area. 

"The staff were lovely and very helpful. I loved the atmosphere and will definitely be returning soon!"

8th best restaurant in Middlesbrough according to Trip Advisor, Khushi

#8. Khushi Indian Buffet Restaurant
FORMERLY of 11-13 Cumberland Road 

Sadly for Teesside curry fans, number eight on the list is no longer with us, as the restaurant closed on 18th November. 

Reported in Teesside Live, owner Shabana Khushi then said; 

We started the business with the intention of having itself run under a manger, but we have had to give our time 24/7 and neglected our young and old family members due to this. 

"Asif and I have enjoyed our time running Khushi but need to concentrate on our family. 

"We're closing on a high. It's been an absolutely amazing journey meeting so many lovely people along the way. 

"We would love to thank all who have visited Khushi for their custom." 

#7 top rated restaurant in Middlesbrough according to Trip Advisor, Mannequin Cafe

51 Corporation Road, Middlesbrough, TS1 1LT

Offering "the best coffee in the town, tea, homemade cakes, sandwiches, salads, wraps, paninis and a smile, this local offering run by Margaret and Armand has built quite the reputation. 

Receiving 84 reviews of excellent reviews from a total of 112, a clearly impressed Tim visiting from Rotherham commented;

"We took our table and perused the menu; some great options, diverse and eclectic."

He continued, "I was talked into having the Hunter's Stew... WOW! Talking to the owners about the dish my mouth was watering before it arrived."

Before finishing, "I can highly recommend this as a venue. Run by people passionate about food and sharing their passion with their guests."

A popular night spot and live music venue on Linthrope Road, one of the standout performers according to TripAdvisor reviewers was Sticky Fingers range of pies.

Whilst 'gillybobs' added;  "absolutely brilliant coffee and good home made pies, we often pay a visit when my husband is looking for a new guitar."

With options including; Beef in Red Wine, Hotshot Parmo; Chicken, White Wine & Tarragon and 'Creamy' Mushroom & Asparagus, chances are the one visit won't be enough.
