Good quality, small, too small portions and clueless waiter. Considering this and that is too close to home, is not a good choice

The food is ok but very small portions and quite expensive. Too much time waiting to be served. The waitress brought my food 3 times mistaken, yes, three times! They have problems with the heating, it was freezing inside.

After great reviews in Lonely planet and on Trip Advisor, we had to try this little gem. Great handling of our booking, and as suggested from the reviews, we sat at the chef's table and it certainly lived up to expectations. The food was fantastic and we even got to experience a 7-course menu being prepared for a high-end group.... More

I'm surprised about the reviews that this place gets. It is expensive and the portions are not generous. Granted, its location in the monastery square is very tempting. Still, there are better sushi restaurants around.

I went to Zuka for a friend's birthday and, although the food was good, service was a disaster. We waited 10 minutes to have our drinks, and 15 more to place our order. We were five persons and did not ask tons and tons of food, nor special dishes: we had to wait on average 20 minutes between each course,... More

Sunday evenings are busy in San Cugat, but we were out early and got a table at the terrace. The sushi dishes were exciting and different from what we have had before. Tasty and delicious! Both banana desserts were delightful too, highly recommendable. On the negative side the noodle dish for one of the kids arrived 5 min before the... More

I have been twice to Zuka, both times for the lunch menu and both times with business guests. The menu was good, price was a bit expensive, I guess, but not excessive and this is Sant Cugat!! Our waiters were ok but did seem a little uninterested, just really bringing in and clearing the plates. Dont expect conversations about cooking... More
