The food here is off the chain. For real though, I've never had a bad thing here. It also has a nice "neighborhood place" vibe. Go there. You may have difficulty bringing big parties here of >4 people, because the restaurant is really small and...More

Bottom line; I'd expect this place to be on Calle Ocho in Miami! It's a fantastic piece of Kuba away from Cuba. Authentic foods that match the best of Little Havana. The Seafood Sofrito was full of flavor, the mussels and shrimp cooked perfectly, the...More

1st off this place is (as Guy F would say) funky but a good funky. It is small but the staff is friendly and the food is off the hook good. If you are in Richmond and have the time treat yourself.

Being a vegetarian, I had to have the vegetarian paella. Huge portion with artichoke hearts, peas, potatoes, tomatoes, red peppers , okra and avocado. A little salty but delicious none the less. Had the spinach and ricotta cheese empanadas, awesome.

The food was a bit on the dry side though still tasty. The tortilla (omelette) was huge. Great ambiance and something different than the same old food fair makes it worth a stop.

We showed up at 6:30 On a Friday so we expected to wait or eat at the bar. We wound up eating at the bar. The staff was running around the entire time and water went unfilled, etc. They were obviously understaffed but the whole...More
