I love this place. I love taking friends and showing off one of the best restaurants in Richmond. I love their empanadillas (one of each filling), risotto cakes, ropa vieja, cuban sandwich.. I haven't tasted anything I don't like. If there's anything tricky about this...More

Authenticity at its best!!! My husband and I were so pleased with our meals that we were like two happy babies in their high chairs swinging their legs. Delish!

A small, but well run Fan-area Cuban restaurant, with large, tasty portions! We'll definitely be going back for dinner again, soon.

Food was decent but nothing exceptionable. And despite the good food the experience was ruined by rude service and a dining room where the A/C drips into bowls and leaks onto the floor.

Small corner Cuban restaurant. Not good for a larger group. There were five in our group and we had to wait for one of their few booths. We ordered the Elena Ruiz, the Crab Cake sandwich, the Sloppy Jose, the Kubanasa, and the Barbakubana sandwiches....More

This restaurant has a nice blend of Cuban food. We loved the fried plantains and the main courses were good. There was a great salad, seafood, vegetarian and meat selection. For three people it cost $93 but that included two alcoholic drinks and no dessert....More

A great menu. Plenty of options. Good portions. And super reasonable prices. What else could you ask for? Oh, the atmosphere was wonderful. Felt like we were in a little restaurant in Cuba.

Where to start! The menu is mouth-watering, the setting is quaint and personal, in a nice neighobrhood. I would eat here all the time if I lived nearby, but always hit up Kuba-Kuba when in Richmond!

Parking is on the street, but you do find parking within a block or two. The restaurant is small and getting around can be challenging. I did not see anything in the restaurant that made this place wheelchair un-friendly.
