Great atmosphere!

Very unique menu for food and cocktails. Awesome vibe in the restaurant with the theme and decor. It's a great place if you want to try something different.

I can honestly say I have never been anywhere like Cuchi Cuchi. The atmosphere was very cool and the server was excellent. The food was delicious. We ordered a few different items and they were all great. The cocktails were also fantastic. Overall just a very unique and fun place for drinks and dinner. I will definitely go back. The... More

A one-off establishment. Well worth a visit for the novel décor and the general ambiance, and for the fabulous eclectic array of dishes and the creative cocktails that you will not find anywhere else. The theme is not as suspected a 19th century establishment of ill repute but rather the stylish elegance of the 1920s. The staff are dressed accordingly.... More

The cocktail and small plates lists are vast. Everything we ate and drank was delicious. The bar staff were friendly and fun. We had a great time here. I want to go back soon!

I won't be eating here again anytime soon. Intolerably poor service. There was a fifteen minute wait after ordering drinks for the drinks to arrive. We asked for sugar after capuccino was brought to table, but waitress never brought any. Coffee was getting cold, so I finally had to go up to the bar and ask for some. There was... More

Went here on a Thursday night around 7PM. Plenty of metered parking around. Waited 45 minutes for a table for 2, so we had a drink at the bar-PRICEY-$12 a drink. Love the numerous options for food. Perfect sizes to savor the tastes. This was my 1st time here & my daughter's 2nd. Everyone can find something they like. I... More

Funky bohemian romantic restaurant. Staff was dressed in trendy 20s art decoish cool looking clothing. Beautiful people and such great teamwork! They were so accommodating and never stopped smiling. Two pages of the most amazing drink menu. We had the HoochieCuchi - muddled sage rosemary and gin -- so delicious with just a hint of elderberry and pomegranate and Yougivemefever... More

Possibly the coolest restaurant in Cambridge (and that's saying a lot!) for grownups only - don't bring young children. Serving staff and greeters are dressed in a combination of bordello and Belleville, bustiers and tutus, and a good time seems to be had by all. The decor is dripping with fringe and funky furnishings. It's not Hooters and the servers... More

Had a really disappointing first and only visit to Cuchi Cuchi recently. Our group of 9 had called days in advance to book and we're told that they don't do bookings but that we should come along and would not be waiting more than 30 minutes. We arrived at 7:30 and put our names down and were informed it might... More

Caught up with some friends here on Tuesday night whilst visiting from London. The cocktails are AMAZING!!!!! I would recommend the Thai Cocktail which is muddled lemongrass & basil, coconut rum, citrus vodka, champagne float. Super refreshing on a balmy summer evening. Whilst there, I had my fortune told which was quirky and fun. Apparently a windfall is afoot at... More
