This out-of-the-ordinary restaurant is the place to go for those who love the unconventional coupled with a fun and coquettish dining experience! The very friendly and waiters dress up and know how to make the delightful dishes even more palatable, not that they need it! All dishes are prepared with much attention to detail and are very tasty.

So glad we have local friends or we may not have found this place! Fabulous food, fabulous service and a bit of theatre thrown in, with all the amazing outfits worn by the staff. We tried a range of dishes, incorporating a vegetarian and a vegan diet and were all delighted! Scallops, lamb chops, tuna, stroganoff, every bite was delicious!

We have been coming to this place at least for the last 10 years. It never disappoints. They make the best caipirinha you may have tasted and the tapas are all sensational. Excellent service and wonderful atmosphere.

But it pretty much is tapas. A lot of really tasty dishes. Good cocktails, good service. Loved the duck crepes. Quirky atmosphere.

We went with four other couples for drinks and dinner. We had reservations for which we ended up being about 15 minutes late due to traffic and they were very accommodating. Valet parking at the front door or street parking (mind meters if street parking). We started with a drink at the bar and then moved to our table. Staff... More

The drinks are fantastic and sufficiently "bold" the food is great, and the staff are dressed for the 20s. They serve small plates and the two I enjoyed were really good. I highly recommend if in Cambridge on your next trip.

I just LOVE this place. The cocktails are amazing, and the food is good too. I don't live in Boston any more, but have been going back to Cuchi Cuchi every time I'm in town for the past 10 years!

Great food served in an eclectic atmosphere. Just check out pictures of the place and you'll get it. The small plates menu has no duds on it...always excellent and high quality. Drinks/cocktails can be hit or miss. They have been challenged over the past couple of years with bartender turnover. If you get them on a good night they're great....if... More

I don't care how good the food is, the jack hammer-in-our-heads level of misery ( NO EXAGERATION!) we experienced was far beyond what any food could come close to neutralizing. The back room is about 30 feet long and just wide enough for two tables for two with a narrow path in between. And the walls are Mirrored for maximum... More

The atmosphere is really fun and the restaurant is certainly different. The staff is dressed in authentic looking French art decoish. The decor is also of the same theme mixed with worldwide cultures. The dishes all seem like they tried too hard when creating them. Overly complicated and not very tasty. Unfortunately of the 7 of us who dined, 5... More
