The menu at Cuda Bar reads beautifully, and the ambiance, added to by the outstanding customer service, made for a memorable evening on the night I visited.
My house-made gnocchi with braised beef cheeks was a standout – the sauce was plate-lickingly delicious. The flavours were superb in this dish and the care taken with the tender gnocchi was apparent. I also adored the creaminess of the house-made ice cream that accompanied out lush chocolate brownie, which I am sure would curb any chocoholic’s cravings. The drinks list and cocktails were also fantastic – where to start?! The Grape Expectations cocktail in particular was light and refreshing, my kinda drink.
I think that Cuda Bar creates a friendly warmth from the moment you arrive, the staff are well versed on the menu and adding factors like the live band on the weekend is a great touch. Situated right on the main beach strip in Lorne, I genuinely enjoyed having dinner at Cuda Bar and it’s definitely one of the standout dining options in this area.
