“Disappointing and expensive”
Reviewed February 27, 2013

Kuckis atmosphere is comfortable and welcoming
We were a little disapointed in the food ..I chose the seafood platter and was disapointed .
it costs around £30 .00 for one person , given we were on the coast ,the fish/prawns were frozen not fresh and then they were overcooked .the portions are massive though .there were 2 fresh oysters in the platter and these were excellent ,
my husband had a filet of game and this was excellent , and the game dish was good value too

we were recomended to go here , we only went once ,
I would warn its expensive for the standard/quaility of the fish dishes ,

“Good food,surly service”
Reviewed February 26, 2013

Kucki's is really two places in one. The front bar looks like an Austrian Stubli with a nce bar where you can eat if you wish. There are several tables most of which have reserved signs on, but ask to be seated at one and there's no problem. Beware though as it is definitely a smokers restaurant.
In the back there are tables for a large number of diners on two levels, the top level having a large screen TV for sporting events. The food is very good and is one of the few places where both seafood and meat are excellent. In particular the Oysters and the "lady" steak ( fillet steak). Service is very efficient but nearly always surly. There is outdoor seating, but it's on the roadside with a view over the car park !

“Vibey family restaurant”
Reviewed February 12, 2013

It's vibey, busy and the portions are generous. All in all a great experience. The waitress, however, had had a long busy day I think - not very friendly at all. Still enjoyed the experience though.

“Vibrant and compfortable”
Reviewed February 1, 2013

This vibrant bar/restaurant offers great food and a good atmosphere. The traditional German influence in the town came through in the food, and despite the very full restaurant, we were comfortable there. The bar was busy, full of locals and travellers, making it an interesting place to be. Make a booking in advance though, since this seemed to be a very popular place to eat/drink!

“Great food in a pub environment”
Reviewed January 26, 2013

The atmosphere was great with the pub buzzing all the time. The food was really good and all six people in the party commented on the tasty food.

Ask the owner about the story behind the piece of aircraft fuselage attached to the wall.
