The food here are quite interesting and unique. Each has a great presentation (and quite a price). We tried a lot of food there as they suggested 3 menus for each person. We ordered 5 main courses with 2 dessert. Bear in mind, all main...courses here are tapas so portion is very small. We tried the scallop ($3.2/portion/2 scallops), tuna tartare, octopus, fried chicken, and the most expensive of all was the beef bone marrow ($20/portion) For food, I recommend to try the tuna tartare. Only that one worth the price for me. The fried chicken was the least worth, it's basically regular fried chicken with bit of spices. The beef bone marrow was okay, I like the gluten rice but the beef was quite dry. For dessert, we tried the caramel apple crumble with black pepper ice cream and the Tea-ramisu. As someone who doesn't like coffee, I love the tearamisu and would be back just for this. The price is quite high but for this one, I definitely recommend you to try. The service is also top notch. The place itself is nice to hang around.More

This is the best spanish restaurant that I have ever visited in Indonesia. Not only that, the ambience is also cool. When you visited the place, it is very recommended to eat outside.

Amazing food experience! We were staying at a walking distance from the restaurant but wherever you stay in Bali, Cuca is worth the journey. The restaurant has a beautiful garden with tables to eat outside but we stayed inside because it was raining very heavily....The atmosphere is pleasant, the tables can be separated by curtains which is a very nice idea. The food was simply great: we had the 7 courses menu with selection by the chef (it included most of the plates that I would have ordered anyway). Each single dish left me surprised and amazed by the mix of flavors. Do not expect small tapas: after the 7 courses we were definitely satisfied. The owner and chef came at our table to explain his philosophy and it was a very interesting conversation. Do not miss it when in Bali!More

One of the best dining experience in Bali without doubt. Beautiful locaiton, mind blowing food and brilliant staff. Love the mix of a casual none pretentious ambience with world class dishes If you are looking for a culinary experience where the food and not the...bill blows you away then look no further.More

I've tried most of the high end restaurants in Bali - Locavore, Aperitif, Kayuputi, Mauri, etc. - and still think that Cuca offers the most memorable dining experience with an excellent value for money. I highly enjoyed my dining experience at Cuca and would come...back in a heartbeat.More

Recommended by my brother he insisted we check out Cuca. We both had the chef choice menu and tried most of the menu. My favourite was the pork buns and grilled octopus but all were nice. Thanks you Cuca for the best meal.
