We headed here on a Wednesday night following an after work meeting, arriving around 7pm. We lucked in to a parking spot on the same block (although with a one-hour limit....which we relayed to our server) and were seated immediately. I tried the Kuban Roast Pork for the first time and enjoyed it once I added some hot sauce. My... More

Whether you like Cuban food or not, or even know anything about it--this is a great neighborhood place to eat. Small, crowded, and definitely not up-scale, the food here is wonderful: Cuban sandwiches, platanos, interesting salads, even the crabcake. There's a great variety with large portions and reasonable prices.

Don't come if you want fancy or formal. But if you want delicious authentic food, in a quant restaurant then Kuba is a must.

My husband and I love Cuban food! We always time our trip to or through Richmond when we know that Kuba Kuba will be open. The only restaurant we like to eat at in Richmond!!! Delicious food and huge portions!

Mani, the chef at Kuba Kuba, was awesome to work with for our wedding reception. He was almost as excited about our reception as we were! He worked with us on multiple iterations of the menu and finding something that would be tasty, accommodate guests with multiple preferences, and meet our budget. He even met us the day of the...

Unusual setting within a neighborhood called the "Fan". Great coffee. Lunch menu very exciting. A different twist on dining.

We had a great experience. The atmosphere makes you feel like you may be in Cuba, and the food definitely makes you feel that way. Great portions & outstanding flavors! We will be back for the best Cuban sandwich in town.

Relaxed, noisy, funky, kitschy, cold beer, generous servings, good value, approachable efficient staff. What's not to like? 1 buck Miller Ponies!

We went out as couples last week to Kuba-Kuba. The interior is great with period and Cuba local wall paints and knickknacks. The food was a bit pricey but very good. The plantains were great, the couscous and coconut mini cakes appetizers were sooo good. The entrees were good and the serving sizes we enough to share.
