Great food and cozy

The staff is great and the portions are huge. Me and my friend ate Kuja burgers, one with sweet potato and one with french fries. Try the sweet potato it was divine! Kuja is overall a great place to have dinner !

I went here with a friend during Easter hungry for big burgers. We both ate the Kuja burgers, which were just excellent! There were many fillings but everything matched up together. I had my burger with deep fried sweet potatoes and chili mayo, highly recommended. The atmosphere was cozy and welcoming, and all staff was really friendly. Extra points for... More

Went here saturday when the place was full. Place had nice cozy feeling. I ordered Kujaburger and for sidedish I had fried sweet potatoes. Beef was well made, buns were really tasty and veggies were top class. Unfortunately there was way too much mayo and the size of the burger made it impossible to eaten by hand. Also my girlfriend's... More

I asked the front of house staff at my hotel where they went for Sunday brunch. They all mentioned Kuja Bar and so I booked a table. I was not disappointed. Do not be put off by the nondescript exterior. It's obviously very popular with locals. It does three sittings and the fixed price is incredibly cheap for small, but... More

Cosy Kuja is always nice, it is in fact the epitome of nice, and now they served me the best french fries I have ever had. They came with a fairly good burger too. I'm happy to recommend Kuja it's a perfect lazy hang-out place.

Kuja is a cosy informal restaurant located outside the traditional tourist walk area, but only 1,5 km from the Market square in the south harbour. A nice variety of beers especially those in bottles. The food was very good - specialities crepes and tarte flambee also called white pizza. Also the hamburgers are delicious. The place is definitely worth returning... More

From outside it is really hard to know what type of place is this. I can assure you that they serve were good lunch menus with an affordable prices. For people who like beer: special mentioning for home brewed IPA beer.

A nice easy going small place not too far from the city centre. The food is good, but the staff and the service are just amazing.

We've been here to brunch many times. Great, fresh and tasty food, homey atmosphere and the warmest service in town. Try the pizzas also, the vegetarian one is nice.

We had dinner at Kuja last weekend. The atmosphere is very nice and cozy. The personnel is very friendly. The burgers we ate were wonderful. Huge and delicious. One of the best burgers I ever had. And the price was very reasonable (around 15€ for a burger including fries or salad). Another highlight was the mud-cake that was offered for... More
