I've been to Kuba Kuba many times and everything I order is always super tasty and keeps me coming back! Food, drinks, service is always good. It is a rather small place so sometimes there can be a wait but it is worth it and moves quick!

Good Cuban Food small restaurant/grocery store, you can find good wholesome by Chef Manny, cooked more towards the American palate, me being Cuban would have added more cumin, cilantro, garlic and other spices, but overall a good choice.

The place does not look like much, but the food and service are outstanding. They even brought us 2 open bottles of wine to try before we settled on one. That was a first for me. The food is really creative. I will retun when I visit Richmond.

This was a perfect stop for a late lunch in Richmond- sat at the bar, great music, wonderful chatter all around, and a delicious sandwich and plantains. What a great little restaurant, in an ADORABLE neighborhood.

Wonderful neighborhood restaurant, wish there were one of these in F'burg. Delicious roast pork and Cuban sandwiches. Great plantain. The server was very helpful and even created a new sandwich combo to accommodate us. We dined early and did not experience any crowds but they had steady traffic and were filling up as we left around 6PM. The menu is... More

It's a neighborhood legend and doesn't take reservations, because it's always packed. Get there early and enjoy authentic Cuban food (we loved the roast pork and ropa vieja) along with a surprisingly eclectic selection of wines and beers. They don't have a full liquor license, so you'll have to forgo the mojito, but the portions and the quality make it... More

My wife and I used to eat here all the time when we lived around the corner. Now that we've moved further away, it's more of a special trip place for us. But if we're in The Fan, this is where we try to eat. It's small, and fills up fast, but it's worth the wait. If you're nearby and... More

Delicious food, decent service every time though typically not fast. Though I am not a regular I have been a few times and look forward to a return trip. Great for a group but make plans ahead. Get there early as reservations are not accepted. Always busy. Order a cake for that special occasion-they are fabulous! The epitome of a... More

Love this little restaurant and would go to it all the time if I could figure out where to park. If you've mastered parking in restricted areas, then you should be good to go. Great food and the feel of an authentic Cuban restaurant....definitely on the list of places to try in RVA!
