The 'restaurant' is really a collection of covered areas in a large garden lit by fairy lights so immediately sets it apart from some of the other restaurants located close by. We were welcomed by a lady who spoke very good English and explained some of the Goan dishes less familiar to us. The food was freshly cooked and tasty,... More

While staying in Arpora for 2 weeks we sometimes dined here, at Kukuruku. A very cosy and nice place! Very romantic and beautiful! People working here do really their best to make u feel at home! Well, the prices are not so cheap as in some other cafes, but they cook just splendid here and helpings are sooooo generous!

We came across this lovely restaurant by chance. The most romantic location and atmosphere, the hospitality second to none. Madam was the most charming of people with Dave, her husband one of the most talented chefs we encountered in Goa. High praise indeed. It's a must to visit if looking for the real goan hospitality and friendliness. We miss you... More

Located down a side track, the outside garden restaurant, consisting of raised tented decks, lit with fairly lights did look enchanting at night. There were very few people in the restaurant at the time of our visit and the food we had was very average. Nothing to complain about, but nothing to make us want to return.

There are a lot of boards along the way to guide you to the place and it says all sorts of things that make you wonder what great place it it. But it actually is nothing much in terms of ambiance or food. The garden is quite messy. Food was forgettable. The reason why they get 2 stars is, the... More
