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

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

Regularly visit Babucho's and always have a great time. The food is always amazing and the menu has plenty of choice. On this occasion we were out for a friends birthday she was given a free dessert and we were all given a glass of prosecco after. Overall a great night and can't fault anything.
