Visited with friends for a pre-concert early dinner - arrived about 5pm. Initial impressions were good, as there were a few people already seated, and there was a good buzz about the place - not always the case early on. The service was great, and staff very friendly, but the food was a let down. My wife had Salmon on... More

Booked this restaurant around 3 weeks before we were due to visit. Arrived around 15 minutes early to be told our table wasnt ready, which was expected. They were running a tiny bit late and ran over about 10 minutes to which we received complimentary prosecco!! The food itself was extremely tasty and the portion size was good for the... More

Celebrated my daughters 18th birthday last night with a small family party. Had a great night, lovely food & excellent service the lady who served our table couldn't do enough for us making it a very enjoyable evening. She also served our table a few weeks ago when 7 of us celebrated a friends 50th birthday. Once again lovely food... More

I booked a table here to celebrate my 21st birthday with a group of 9 girls. The staff (especially Jason) could not have looked after us more. The food and service were both amazing! Overall we had an amazing time and can't wait to go back! The complimentary prosecco brought to us made it even more special and we had... More

My work colleague booked this for her 21st birthday tea, food was fabulous and staff couldnt have been more helfpful - a couple of us arrived a little early to sprinkle 21st confetti and decorate our table as a surprise....Babucho's staff made it that extra bit special by helping and supplying gorgeous champagne bottles as table decorations. We had the... More

This place is busy and has a nice atmosphere. Slow service, had to ask twice for a few items. Nice menu with good selection of pastas. Food was exactly as expected. Not a bad price for 4 people.

Looks great from outside, fab decoration inside, friendly staff but average food. Had a lot better in other places in Newcastle. All of us thought the same didn't bother with desserts or coffee we went elsewhere. There was nothing wrong with the food it was just average nothing exceptional that would make us go back unfortunately.

Went as a couple to this very busy restaurant after seeing the "rapid" menu outside. It spoke volumes that although there are lots of restaurants nearby this was busy while others were not. We didn't book but they accommodated us after about 15 minutes. Service was very, very good. Little things like remembering to pour the wine / water and... More
