I don't actually have a bad word to say about this place.. I've been for birthdays work gatherings and now a romantic date. They cater for everything and their dinner menu is such a good value.. for any occasion I recommend babucho!

Went for an 18th birthday celebration.. the cocktails are divine and the service is absolutely wonderful! The waiter was amazing, noticed it was my birthday and I was brought complimentary truffles.. a nice little touch to the meal, especially when we didn't tell the restaurant it was my birthday a few days after. The waiter and service was great, food... More

My parents eat their quite often and they were... More

Great looking restaurant, lively with a good atmosphere. Ordered a couple of cocktails to start with at the bar, not expensive drinks but poor quality. Food, again not the best or worst food but not memorable and a bit bland. If the food matched the decor they would be on to a winner

Table booked for twelve people, we had a private corner and were treated very well by a very attentive waiter. All had starters, the bruschetta was more tomatoes than anything, chicken wings were lovely, calamari ok. Main meals pasta dishes were superb, pizza tasted nice but had a soggy base, sea bass delicious, steak had to be returned as well... More
