In a Franco-Italian establishment, the cuisine is considered of main importance. Cubadak offers a mix of Indonesian, Padang, Chinese Mandarin and Italian cuisines. Of course the main choice of dishes comes from the sea, according to the daily catches of the fishermen: crabs, fishes, squids, octopus, lobsters, prawns etc. The food is light, delicious, and one of the main priorities of the management. The restaurant has a maximum of 4 tables depending on the occupancy, our guests share all their meals including with the management staff.
