Cuchi Cuchi is an intersting place.... It's retro feel is quite fun, the wait staff is accomodating, the alcoholic drink list is unique and extensive but the food is fair at best. Nothing outstanding to speak of. I was there recently with a large group and has sampling of many dishes and nothing wowed me at all. Fun place to... More

I took my friend who was visiting Boston to Cuchi Cuchi because I know she would appreciate their unique and tasty cocktails. We were equally impressed with their wide variety of plates and the eclectic feel of the place. Our waiter was so helpful and made some great food and drink recommendations. Definitely different dining experience but a fun and... More

We had eaten here before on a previous trip to Cambridge and really enjoyed it which was why we returned. However the food and cocktails were disappointing this time. The service however was excellent and could not be faulted.

The food was excellent. Small plates, so it's a great place to share many tastes. It gets very noisy after 8 PM, but early is quiet with excellent service

Ate here with work colleagues whilst on a business trip, and was blown away by the food served. It has a slightly quirky feel, and the pre-dinner cocktails were awesome! As advertised, the menu is based around a tapas concept, with sharing plates, so we chose a range of fish, meat and vegetable options (there were five of us, so... More

From the outrageous/whimsical decor of sculptures exquisite & unique lighting fixtures ornate exotic indo-European & deco wall hangings to the spectacularly costumed & uniquely dressed & accessorized waitstaff you immediately know you are not in Kansas anymore. You soon realize that both the food menu & drink menu are as adventurous as the ambience. Starting with the endlessly creative drink... More

Very eclectic mix on the menu, had to think a little to get pairings that weren't too odd. Had Baby roasted beets, fried artichoke hearts, and a Cuban dish that was short rib and black bean salsa. All were very good, artichoke dish wasn't our favorite. Loved the beets. For dessert had the banana bread dish which was decadent. Very... More

Visited with friends and family for dinner. The service is amazing, the food is excellent & the ambiance is very relaxing and fun! Their drink menu is awesome! It has the largest choice of mixed drinks made exclusively for Cuchi Cuchi.

Went here with a friend and we loved it. We got seats at the bar and although service was a little slow we didn't mind since we were just enjoying the night and watching the bartenders make the fun drinks. We enjoyed our cocktails and the food was delicious.
