Myself and my boyfriend went to this restaurant on our anniversary. The food was beautiful, the gentleman serving was an absolute star! Really lovely place.

I have visited here many of times, usually during the week for lunch (pizza, pasta) and it has always been good food. However I attended for Sunday dinner and was very ill the following days after eating this. The chicken wasn't nice at all, and hardly any veg. Very disappointed

We booked a meal here after going in for a drink one time and thought the restaurant looked lovely. I ordered a garlic bread for starters, it didn't taste like garlic bread in the slightest. My boyfriend had a taste and thought the same. It was more like tomato bread. Although I've never seen a restaurant put tomato sauce on... More

Visited today for a late lunch after shopping in Newcastle. The place is family friendly and we were welcomed with our daughter in her pushchair. Food and service was excellent. Will be returning in the near future!

Visited this bar / restaurant with 9 of my friends. The bar manager couldn't of done enough for us! He rearranged the tables and chairs so that we could sit out side in the sun. The cocktas were great & the food was lovely too.

This restaurant had been recommended. First impressions were great and it is a very smart modern restaurant with a good atmosphere. Took ages for drinks to arrive. Our starters were fine then more long waits for additional drinks and main meals. Annoying when you see waitresses standing round chatting! Also noticed when my empty glass was taken I wasnt asked...

Decided to try Babucho again for Sunday lunch, as we had dined there for a few weeks ago and found it excellent. This time was no different. My wife chose Bruschetta and I went for the oven roasted prawns on tuscan bread. For main course, my wife had seabass, and I went for the Sunday slow roast leg of lamb.... More

This was my second visit to Babucho. The restaurant is lovely. The staff are great+the food is a real treat. We didn't mean to go here on Sunday but the other restaurant we couldn't get in. I was so glad that we ended up in here. I got the tempura prawns+then the fillet steak. I could not fault a thing.... More

We chose to return to Babuchos with friends as they offer a gluten free menu. The mushroom risotto was particularly good, there were 6 of us in the party and we all enjoyed our meals. It is located in a popular and busy area near the Quayside. Staff were friendly and attentive. Well worth a visit.
