Description: Opened in 1998 and is Scotland’s first and only authentic Russian Restaurant. This venue aims to keep its Russian roots intact, bringing cuisine, hospitality and culture to the heart of Glasgow’s Merchant City.The kitchen’s allegiance to former Soviet territories - from Russia and Moldavia to Armenia and Georgia - is evident on the menu featuring borscht, country soup made with cabbage, tomato, beetroot, garlic and coriander; Rostovsky platter, a duet of beetroot-raisin and carrot-garlic salads; aubergine ratatouille accompanied by just-baked pancakes.

We went there as part of a groupon deal. The menu had around 5 choices of starter and 5 mains. Personally I found the food very plain but that might suit others. The service was very friendly and staff were keen to help with any choices you made. We also had a bottle of red which was keenly priced followed... More

We live really close to this restaurant and constantly walk past it on our way to places. So after a few years, we finally decided to give it a try a couple of weeks ago. It's really big inside wit lots of choice re seating. We sat beside the window which felt nice and cosy as the nights get darker... More

We visited in a large group (I think 18 people) and had a great meal. Every member of staff was very friendly and helpful. Even though we were a large group the service was organised very well, with everyone's meal arriving within about 5 minutes of each other. They even apologised for the wait but nobody had been getting impatient... More

We had a very enjoyable evening here, from the moment we arrived the staff were very nice, happily giving advice on the menu and drinks. The food was very good, we had Borscht and Pickled Herring to start, followed by the chicken and pork chop, both excellent and hearty portions too. Don't miss the Russian coffee - delicious!

Visited on sat night. Really good food in pleasant surroundings. Unpretentious with character. Not entirely sure about the giant TV screens though. Will go back.

Myself and my partner took a 3 day break to Glasgow. Our first trip to this city. We tried to eat out in a different style restaurant every night. A Russian Restaurant was a MUST as we had never eaten that type of cuisine before. Great welcome. Very friendly staff. AND above all great food. We both had the Borsch... More

After a long day of shopping my friend and I decided to try Cafe Cossachok. Inside is exquisite and the staff were extremely kind by asking if we would like to put our shopping bags behind the bar. The food was delicious! Very generous sized portions. The atmosphere is unlike anything else, so calm and relaxed. I would highly recommend... More
