Definitely a popular place, with a lot of people standing in the waiting area with drinks. We felt the authentic vibe, I would say it's the best Cuban food around here. I was very happy with my Huevos.

While in Richmond last week, I asked some of the locals about the best restaurants in the city. Kuba-Kuba was on everyone's list. I LOVE Cuban food so I went. The food was good. However...after living in NYC and South Florida, and traveling to several countries in Latin America (as well as Spain), this place does not make my list.... More

This is not the greatest place to get Cuban food since there's no authentic Cuban flavor. Every meal I've tried here has been bland and Americanized. Every now and then, I like to get a cafe con leche when I'm in the area but that's about it. I lived in Florida all my life and I'm Puerto Rican so trust... More

I love the "cortadito" coffee, delicious, I wanted it to be bottomless :(. Sandwiches are great, platanos were not, tasteless and hard. Ropa vieja and tres leches is a must!

A Fan regular with great Cuban food. The picadillo is my favorite, with many types of Paella. PLEASE try the Tre Leche Cake is is the best! Parking is difficult, try to walk. After dinner take a stroll around the Fan.

We stopped here on a whim during a road trip. This is a small place - combination market/restaurant. My husband saw the restaurant featured on the food network for a dessert. We had appetizers - empanadillas and Moros y Christianos. They were delicious and very authentic. The wait staff was friendly and helpful. Prices were reasonable. We loved it and... More

This restaurant was recommended by a friend and we were not disappointed! What a great little place. Great vibe, portions were large, friendly and helpful wait staff, and the food......well, the food was just superb. Every entree was spectacular. The coconut appetizers were wonderfully tasty and perfectly cooked. The desserts were mouth-watering, especially the Tres Leches cake. We brought our... More
