It was an enjoyable dining experience overall. The only area of concern was even though we knew it was tapas like dishes the amount of food was small and the prices high. Our only critique, otherwise a good experience

The waitress was not a good waitress at all.

She asked to bring us a second set of plates and then forgot until we were done with the entire meal and we asked her and she didn’t even say “that’s my fault”. She asked how things were the first two food drops and barely came over again. I waited 30 minutes to even have the change to ask for a coffee and it was because her manager took our coffee and dessert order. I specially put birthday and special occasion and they did nothing for it, but I heard everyone else having special songs sung to them. She didn’t really seem to want to be there or share with us suggestions. When we asked about things she seemed to shrug her head and not care for it too much. She took our silverware at one point too and we were sharing one fork.

Cuchi Cuchi is one of my favorite places to take people visiting Cambridge/Boston area. Does not matter if they are from Europe or Indiana, they are impressed with the unique ambiance and food offerings. I never get tired of the Cornets of tuna, the cuban cigar, the Indian lamb. However, I am still finding dishes like the Mexican tomato which are outstanding. Great people and atmosphere as well.

We spent our 1-year anniversary at Cuchi Cuchi and couldn’t have been more impressed. The ambiance was beautiful and unique, the food was DELICIOUS and the wait staff was prompt and helpful with the menu. Definitely will be returning - seriously such a great experience!! We talked about it the whole car ride home.

We live outside of the city but one look at the menu and their cocktails menu in particular was all it took to convince us to take Uber and leave the car at home.
Great decision!

The cocktails were amazingly good. We especially liked the vintage ones. We never ordered the same one twice. My choices included the Vesper Martini, The Avenue, and the Corpse Reviver. We shared the Espresso Martini during dessert.

Food. Their garlic shrimp (gambas al ajillo in Spain) was exceptionally good, and I would say the best I have tried outside of Spain. It was so good in fact that we ordered a second helping later in the meal.
There is nothing bad on the menu.

Our server was Max. Very good service. Very polite and friendly. Very knowledgeable about the menu.

Wonderful as always. Our favorites were the artichoke dish and banana bread dessert. Amazing cocktails as well. Everyone had different eating styles (vegetarian, pescatarian, meat-focuses) and we still found a lot to share and enjoy.

We were seated in the very back of the restaurant, next to the dish washing section despite over 10 empty tables elsewhere. Our server routinely walked past us with empty dishes and glasses on our table. While the food was very good, everything was overpriced for the quantity we received. We frequently go out for small plates but ended up leaving earlier than we would have otherwise and went to Craigie on Main for more food at their bar (much better value and service).

Christmas Eve tradition with my spouse. We explode a restaurant new to us with a special menu. Cuchi Cuchi did not disappoint. The flavors from around the world in larger than tapas servings were great for sharing and filling up!

The atmosphere and service were great! We’ll be back!

The food at this kitschy place was very good. All made to share so you get to try a lot. Loved the ambiance. Cocktails are a smidge pricey and a tad too sweet...but as long as you know that you can order accordingly. Definite recommend!

This restaurant was a pleasant surprise. Parking was easy on. Tuesday night 6 pm. First time visit and I will be back. Although we were only two people, nice to see seating for large parties. My cocktail was yummy ...something with blood orange. Entrays were plenty and filling. We ordered two plates each. Our waiter really knew the menu. Glad to see gender neutral restrooms! No line for the ladies room AND they were both clean. Yup we will definitely return someday! Oh and the name of this place is hilarious....You went WHERE??!!

One of our favorite restaurants. Great drinks, atmosphere and fantastic food! Tried a new dish (calamari) along with our usual staples. The dessert (banana extravagenza) is amazing. We never get any other dessert:)

I dine out regularly with friends. When I want a special "lift" Cuchi Cuchi always comes to mind first, and my fellow diners never say no at the suggestion. The food is excellent, the service is personal and efficient, and one always gets the feeling that the servers are having a good time, too. The atmosphere is fun and we always like the attire. A couple of times I have arrived without a reservation, but they have been able to accommodate me (after a short wait) at the bar, which was fun, especially watching the various creative martinis being made. Be aware-- this is not a " one and done" place. Once you've experienced Cuchi Cuchi, you will return!

This is a lovely, hip place, with an awesome cocktail selection and very cool small plates. All the food we had was good to excellent, not absolutely mind-blowing as I've had other places in the same price range, but definitely delicious and fun! And the atmosphere is amazing -- it feels a little like stepping into a traditional place in Cuba. Our server was extremely attentive and apologetic when our drinks didn't come right away, so high marks for that as well!
