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.

Sunday eve, not very busy and were served promptly by a lovely waiter and waitress who were very attentive and always making sure everything was okay. The food was absolutely beautiful, my mum and I were very impressed, not only... More

We went on a 5pm deal. The two members of staff serving us were really friendly and knowledgable about the menu. Our starters were excellent, the Greek salad tasted delicious was really fresh and huge. When our mains arrived we were very impressed by the presentation and once we started eating we found the food to be excellent. The deal... More

We've been here a few times and can highly recommend Café Cossachok. Food's great and plenty of it - try the herring platter and the Russian coffee - fab. Great staff, lovely cocktails and huge range of vodkas; what's not to like?

My wife and I had a very enjoyable meal here recently. We both started with Borscht which was delicious as were our mains. All washed down with excellent Kozel beer, one of our favourites when we visit friends and family in the Czech Republic. The staff were very attentive and polite. Thoroughly recommended.

Café Cossachok is a very pleasant restaurant with a warm atmosphere and friendly, helpful staff. We enjoyed an unhurried and relaxing meal. The food was well-cooked and presented, just a bit on the bland side for me, but fine otherwise. I would recommend the restaurant for people who would like to try something a bit different. A pleasant experience.

Visited today on the 27th March for a 5pm lunch. With the price at £8.95 for three courses I wasnt sure what to expect. However, this is one of the best lunches I have had for a long time in tems of service, value, tasty food and size of portions. Hence the 'Excellent' rating. Our waiter and waitress were very...

I had a turkish coffee in here and it was lovely, the place is quite quirky and cool - the toilets are wall papered with sheet music! I did however have quite bad service from the waiter who just had a bit of an attitude about him. None the less the coffee was great and the atmosphere was pleasant.

Came here on with a Groupon voucher on Friday night not very sure what to expect. Warm welcome when we arrived. No restrictions on the menu for being on Groupon which makes a nice change. Starters and main courses delicious. All very fresh and piping hot. Would recommend the hazelnut vodka shot which was also included in the deal. Staff... More
