The food was absolutely delicious, we took the chefs tasting menu, which was a real treat.
And the staff is so attentive,u never have to wait for the food.
Special thanks to our waitress Nita (i hope i spell it correctly) who was a real delight and competently explained us all the different dishes.

I visited Cuca with some friends and for those who experienced first time were amazed of the food and uniqueness of restaurant ambiance. The food are from local fresh ingredients but is cooked creatively so that it produces tasty and unique flavour! The presentation itself to me is the beautiful art! The Chef should have made them in detail and with passion so that the combination of the look and its flavour are fantastic!
My favourite is the grilled octopus, baby crab, crispy chiken. If you like the fresh and sour taste, choose the Bali Breakfast for dessert and the Big Apple for the drink.

The restaurant has indoor and outdoor spaces. The kitchen team and its process are also visible from the guest table which you may say the Chef table and the Food Bar table. The dining tables are varies from 2 seatings, 4 or more, depends on your needs and the staff could adjust the table. If you have birthday party or gathering this place is perfect to celebrate. What I like also is that at every table there is a hook, so no worries for ladies where to hang your hand bags! The staffs are friendly and professional. They welcome you and explain what the food are about before you dig deeper into it. What an enjoyable evening and experience!

The setting of the restaurant, the friendly helpful staff, getting the chance to sit next to the kitchen and watch the chefs prep the food, all wonderful! Then to have a such a great taste experience with the chef's tasting menu, every course was sublime, and interesting and sometimes surprising, but always a huge pleasure... The cocktail I had was beautifully made, then the glass of white wine (Pinot Grigio) from Bali was delightful.
Everything worked so perfectly and the staff were so in sync with the chefs and the customers, it was a true pleasure to experience! Highly recommended for anyone interested in great food and presentation!

This was easily ranked one of, if not, the best meals we've had in Bali. The property sits on a beautiful idyllic garden surrounded by coconut trees.
It has an open concept kitchen and I diners sat by the kitchen counter.
Service was excellent, in fact, more than excellent. So much attention to details without being intrusive.
Food was an explosion of Flavours. I'm not going to list what we ate but everything we had was amazing. It's the first time I went to a restaurant and not take pics of the food as pics will not justify the experience.
Like it says in the menu, come with an open mind and an empty stomach! Totally worth it!

We had dinner at Cuca our first night in Bali. We stayed at the Kayumanis Jimbaran and the restaurant was literally next to the resort so it was really convenient to get to. We both had the chefs tasting menu and a few cocktails. The presentation was amazing and we thoroughly enjoyed our dinner. The value for the tasting menu is incredible. The rice tempura soft shell crab and the meat and potatoes were our favorite dishes. We would highly recommended!
