“Over Priced For Below Average Food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 August 2014

I came here for a hen party meal and I found the food to be quite poor considering the prices you were expected to pay. I wouldn't go again. I can get a better quality of food at a cheaper restaurant of the same genre. It was very noisy and the lights kept going bright then dim throughout the evening which was annoying.

A friend and I visited on a Tuesday evening, we sat outside as the weather was fine. The food was tasty and hot, the wine was good and our waiter was charming.

“Promised a lot delivered little..”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 July 2014

Went on Sunday afternoon. I wouldn't say it was overly busy. Ordered kids meals and drinks and I ordered meatballs and spaghetti, simple order or so I thought. Drinks took 20 mins to arrive. Meal came out after 55 minute wait. Kids meals were ok luke warm nothing spectacular. Only three meatballs for a main course meal was shameful, I asked the waiter to take it away and return with a fuller portion.
The staff were very apologetic and indeed returned with much improved meal. Food was fairly bland and tasteless really.
In a nutshell the waiters done great job but were let down by poor food. All in all not a great experience however I would give the place the benefit of the doubt due to the polite service

“Excellent food, excellent service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 July 2014

Had a fantastic meal at Babucho for son's graduation. The restaurant was full but the service was first class. Many thanks to Jason, our waiter for the evening. Good selection of cocktails, the food was delicious and great atmosphere. We cannot recommend Babucho highly enough. We will definitely return when next in Newcastle.
