Good if you are in the mood for a change from the standard fare available in/around Glasgow - food was good, reasonable priced and a nice novelty.

Had lunch with a friend and we thought we'd try something different. Cafe Cossachok fits the bill. It's on a side street in Glasgow's merchant city and is immediately striking from the road, with red signage. The decor inside continues the theme with rustic wooden tables and draped lampshades. The waitress who served us was very friendly and helpful, suggesting... More

This was our second time here (again, on a deal voucher) and it was lovely - very tasty food. Also. The hazelnut vodka was amazing and the napoleons cake is still one of the best desserts I have ever had in a restaurant!

Visited with a group of friends, having booked last minute on a Sunday evening and we all had a fab time. Food was delicious and huge portions. The cranberry and hazelnut shots were great. The boys loved their russian beer and we girls enjoyed a bottle of red. Such good value for money. Will definitely be back.

Booked a 2 course meal with vodka shot via internet deal. For the money we were not expecting such a great meal (both in quality and quantity). The Russian beer, Baltika 7, was very nice and a good accompaniment to the food. Great service, friendly and helpful staff. We will definitely eat there again and we recommend going.

This is my second visit and I can't rate it highly enough. Extremely tasty dishes, big portions and excellent service. This is something really different within Glasgow so go and taste for yourself.
