“One of my favorite Hoboken restaurants!”
Reviewed September 12, 2012

First the cocktails---fresh ingredients make all the difference and at Cucharamama the drinks are oh so tasty and strong! The menu offers a huge range of options for both carnivores & vegetarians. There is nothing that I hate more than bland food and at Cucharamama the S.American food is very flavorful. Be sure to get a bunch of apps and share so you can try a bit of everything!

“great little place”
Reviewed July 26, 2012

What a lovely little find! Def. one of my fav Hoboken eateries. The interior is cozy and cute (good choice for a romantic interlude), waiters are friendly and the food is tasty and a big original. Cooking is latin american inspired (Peru, Ecuador etc). Very good appetizers. Had the duck as a main which was very tasty, tho the sides of quinoa and (pureed carrots?) were a bit bland. Everyone else in the group also really liked their meals. I'll be back for sure!

“Amazing”
Reviewed July 23, 2012

I've lived in Hoboken for 3 years now and this is still my favorite place to go! Good for a date spot/drinks or intimate gathering with a few friends or family.

“Food was excellent...”
Reviewed June 20, 2012

Took my family for Dad's birthday on a Tuesday night. Place is nice and quiet. I loved the food - appetizers were awesome and entrees are huge for the meat dishes.
