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.

Authentic Cubian Restaurant. Food was excellent! Service was a little slow, so don't stop in if your in a rush. But overall my experience was good. Would recommend it to friends. Will be coming back!

Although the restaurant was nice, quaint and my food was delicious: the service was really bad. One of the people we were with, his food was cold, he didn't complain about it because he didn't want any bad to happen to the replaced meal. Our server was not attentive. We had to call him over two different times to bring... More

Quaint location on beautiful street with gorgeous homes. Large portions of authentic Cuban food. Cuban sandwich was great. Tres Leche cake was OMG incredible. Must have. I had pork and rice with beans. Great flavors. Only downside is very limited alcohol. Would have loved a real Mojito. Owner very friendly and even ran after me when I forgot my left... More

We arrived at 3 PM on a Sunday afternoon, and no tables were available. Our party of 4 sat at the bar, however, and we were served our beers and starters very quickly. Once a cozy booth was free, the staff happily moved all our food and glasses to the table. The egg-based dishes were superb--fresh and full flavors. Husband... More

Consistently great food (especially enjoy the Spanish tortillas), with very generous portions and a cool atmosphere. Warning: there can be a wait.

I dined at Kuba Kuba today for lunch. The place is pretty cool. It's super small inside. The menu features different Cuban flavors. The prices for most of the items were reasonable. I ordered the huevos kuban. It was good and different. I tried the empandillas and they were good as well. I can't complain about the food, but I... More
