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.

I really love this place. Hidden behind the sheer curtained store front lies a warm and festive restaurant and bar. My friend and I sampled the menu from top to bottom and were not disappointed. I loved the hearty Fruits de Mer and the veggie skewers whereas my friend loved the fried tomato ball. Our server knew the menu inside... More

From the great cocktails and excellent bartenders through to the wonderful desserts, this small plate (not tapas) restaurant is delicious. You can't go wrong ordering. But the tuna cornets are a don't miss dish. Also watch for a long wait if you don't have a reservation

Before even talking about the food and the choices, the second you step into Cuchi Cuchi you know you are going to have a fun time! The owners go all out from the decor to what the watistaff and bartenders wear. Its bordello, meets the 1920's meet grandma's attic! The waitstaff are dressed from corset tops to gorgeous flapper dresses.... More
