This place is awesome. It's decorated very authentic and has indoor outdoor seating. The mojito selections are amazing. The food was very tasty and traditional. I had the mafungo which I've never had but was very impressed. Everyone enjoyed their food. I would go again. Please try it.

We went on a Saturday night at 5:30 and got seated at 6:30. We waited that long because we had heard good things about Kuba-Kuba. The decor is fun and the place is certainly busy. When we were seated we told the hostess that we had theater tickets and needed to order promptly. We were assured that our waiter would... More

Had take out- I had the shrimp And mussels appetizer with a house salad. The salad was delicious with the addition of cilantro! The shrimp and mussels were tasty with the Tasso ham and lime cilantro sauce. Wish they had included more tasty bread - I would have eaten it for sure! Appetizer portion was plenty big to serve as...

This place was recommended and from the other reviews seems to be pretty popular. I went there for a late lunch with some friends. Ordered the Cuban sandwich which was about the worse Cuban I have ever had. It was more of a veggie sandwich then a Cuban. There was virtually no trace of the meat. Also the service was... More

My daughter and I went to Kuba-Kuba for a late lunch. She ordered the Cubano...I ordered the Arroz con Pollo. Delicious, flavorful, wonderful Latin seasonings greet every bite and forkful! My Arroz con Polo serving was enough to feed three people! We finished our lunch with a shared Tres Leche. Nice! Wish I didn't have to share. Definitely looking forward... More

If you love small cozy place with incredible food then Kuba-Kuba is the place. Being my first time in Richmond, my friends wanted to show me the sites and treat me to a meal before I hit the road. The first place we went to had an hour wait but Kuba-Kuba, although packed, had us seated within 15 minutes. We... More

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.
