Quysine Bar & Restaurant


Quysine Bar & Restaurant is a charming and quaint tapas bar and restaurant in a line-up of bars & eateries on the edge of Cleveland’s town centre.

Punters can take a seat on the covered verandah (a good sunset spot) or al fresco courtyard or inside where white brick arches, tiled floors, a dimlit bar with vine clad roof give Quysine something of a Mediterranean ambience to complement the food.

On the menu is a cracking list of excellent tapas to share, including Smoked Pork Croquettes, Patatas Bravas, Portuguese Peri Peri Chicken Livers, Salt and Pepper Calamari and the highly recommended Crispy Arancini Balls and Crispy Pork Belly. For a special treat there’s also a Half or Full Rack of BBQ Pork Spare Ribs.
