Great food

Went on Sunday afternoon and 2 of our party had Sunday Dinner, huge Yorkshire puddings and they really enjoyed it(both had lamb that you had to pay extra for). Other two had pizza and risotto that was shared and the staff plated this before bringing it to the table-tasty.

We arrived here after being recommended it by our taxi driver. The restaurant looked quite busy for a Monday night, which created a good atmosphere. The staff were friendly and the food was amazing. Would rush back if I visit Newcastle again! Bruchetta and my pasta with pesto were both delicious! Also great value.

Visited the restaurant on Friday for my 5th wedding anniversary. The service was excellent. The head waiter Jason really made it a great evening, he was very friendly and professional. The service was fast even though the restaurant was busy and the food was lovely. Will definitely return. Thank you for a lovely evening Jason.

I booked a table months in advance as part of a Hen Doo Celebration for 16 ladies. Once we arrived we were led to the bar for cocktails. They were gorgeous, and not over priced which was great! Once food was ordered, the food came out very quick which was fab as we were all STARVING. Unfortunately some meals were... More

We booked a table for six for my daughter's 21st birthday meal and weren't disappointed at all. We arrived about ten minutes before our booking time and were shown pretty much straight away to our table. It was 8.00 pm and the place, which is large, was packed. Great spot in an alcove 'booth' type setting with all of us... More

Bit of a mixed review - some good, some not so good: one of our party had prawn starter..... don't bother- you get THREE prawns for £7! I had ribs which were great - I shared them with others who had got next to nothing. Mains: One of our party had prawn risotto ..... Again THREE prawns! However loads of... More

Having passed by this establishment on several occasions we decided to give it a try.The food is good ,the service however needs reviewing ,while a lot of restaurants use pda devises , Babucho staff still use pen and paper to take orders which led to our main courses arriving before my wife's starter had arrived as that part of the...

Visited here for my hubbys birthday meal. The restaurant was busy and a bit noisy but had a grear atmosphere. Our waiter was attentive but not overly so. Starters were generous and very tasty, main course the same. My husband had to take half of his home as he couldnt finish it! Will definatley return to try sunday lunch.

Went for a meal with colleagues, everything started off nice and easy, then all of a sudden there was a surge of crowd and before we knew it we were surrounded by people EVERYWHERE! Not a bad thing, just have to speak up if you plan to stay for a catch up with friends. Atmosphere aside, waiter was very friendly,... More
