Amazing night!

First of all, thanks to the very friendly and attentive staff of the cafe! Even though it was quite busy, the service or the meals never lacked TLC! The 4 of us came on a voucher deal, were promptly shown to our table, the place was quite full, and had a nice buzz about it! The deal menu was... read more

Couldn't find our reservation, but we were welcomed in. Lovely atmosphere, great food at very reasonable prices, good service. Also good to try a different type of cuisine and I shall definitely be back to try more!

Tried Cossachok for a late lunch on 5pm and had a great meal, with great service. Being of Baltic origin my childhood had me grow up with traditional dishes of Eastern Europe. Having tried the dishes professionally my wife's and my meals brought memories of tastes and textures, the food being very comforting. Glad to have tried, especially with great... More

Went there for dinner last night with my brother. Have been twice before now and was just as good again. Two starters, mains, wine, teas and vodkas for just over £50. Had the stuffed peppers for a main which were delicious and quite a big portion. Staff very friendly and attentive. Will definitely be returning.

My heading really sums this up. Additional details below ;) It looks pretty, and we were looking forward to trying somewhere new. Very disappointing. Food was very plain. I could have lived with this, however we felt quite ripped off with my dish in particular. The St Petersberg blintz was supposed to have mushrooms and onions through the mash that... More

We went here on a coupon deal and we were not disappointed. If there is a complaint, service was a little slow but a round of drinks offered smoothed that over. Food was good both interns of quality and quantity from a set menu that cost £18:50 a couple for two courses. I do not know what other reviewers are... More

Was shocked to see this place had so many good reviews. I was there last night and the only good thing about it was the beard on one of the waiters. I'll get right to it, I went with my lady and the wee yin last night. We had a groupon deal so maybe thats why it wasn't the best.... More

Me and the wife were in Glasgow for a show and thought Russian would be different. Great decision, staff were very friendly and welcoming, bright and nice space to eat, not cramped. Starters were simple but delicious, pickled veg just my thing followed by a very generous portion of lamb goulash, different from others I`ve had but very tasty. My... More

I have been to Cafe Cossachok twice now and plan to go again very soon. The main menu has a large choice of food, all of which was enjoyable and the lunch menu was both affordable and very filling with large portions. We also got recommended a vodka to go with our dessert which was very tasty. Very friendly staff... More
