Congratulations Cuca and Chef (Kevin Cherkas), not many chef's come out and greet you on arrival and allow you into the kitchen to have a look at the open classy, delightful space and take a photo. After spending 10 nights in Bali and eating out every night at some very beautiful restaurants. None compare to Cuca. We would say Cuca... More

Great food, different and tasty. Our only suggestion would be to allow a little bit more time in between dishes since we felt a little bit rushed. We paid around 1 million Rp for two with two beers. Our favourite dish was the shaved bacon with beetroot. Amazing Not the cheapest in this part of the world but worth it.

First of all, the restaurant ambience is ok, they have such a big area with garden but their dining area was a bit boring, need to do something to make it live. secondly, the staff... More

We came with high expectations, having read so many great reviews here and because of the pedigree of the chef. We left laughing so hard due to disappointment. Don't get me wrong, the menu is inventive and imaginative. The chef works with a lot of local ingredients. Everything is beautifully presented. But that's about it. We just can't appreciate the...

After spending 8 nights in Bali this was hands down the best meal we had during our stay. The Chef here (Kevin Cherkas), who has worked at some of the worlds best restaurants (Daniels in NYC and El Bulli), which you can tell as he has created a relaxed dining room offering up some very clever, inventive and incredibly tasty...

We had an excellent lunch in this restaurant. We were sitting outside on the terrace under the palm tree and started with a very nice cocktail. They are very orginal and everything is home-made. The menu looks very impressive and it was difficult to make a choice! Since we were 3 we ordered as many as possible to share and... More
