When walking into Cucina, the ambience and decor shouts high-class sophistication. Upon perusal of and ordering from the menu, one is made to feel like you are visiting in an "off peak/off season" time. Options are limited and expensive for what you are getting. Food is fresh and well presented, but average when taken in together with the spectacular surrounds.... More

A bit disappointing as Italian food should be prepared fresh. The menu is huge & its impossible to prepare all this food fresh & from scratch. Probably best to eat the pizzas.

We were invited by good friends to this restaurant and had high hopes that it was going to be a "evening to remember" Unfortunately it was disappointing .....although the owner chef ( Italian with all the right memberships of chef's associations etc) sold his food well, but when it came to the crunch, it was far too salty, and frankly...

Cacuina has the ability to be really authentic but the chef is just not producing enough real Italian food. Fresh Pasta /to be found in the Lasagna - disappointing! I chose the Ostrich Jumbalaya which is more like stroganoff. No bruschetta - Mozarella Cheese to be seen let along fresh basil. Deserts also disappointing. The restaurant is great but not... More

Lots of options for breakfast with different pastries, hot breakfast and cereals. Lunchtime is the best time as there are less crowds and can really enjoy your meal. Highly recommend the lamb korma and chicken malay curry. Dinner is busy and is best to make a reservation.

Poor choice and quality of food for breakfast and not a great choice at night. Staff did not seem to care and service was slow. Tables never set up correctly - would not recommend or go back
