I go to Kuba Kuba often and I haven't ever been disappointed. Food is very good and the atmosphere is always lovely. Good service as well! Could be more vegetarian/vegan options but I understand that isn't always the easiest with this particular cuisine.

Wow. Just wow. This restaurant blew my mind. I sat at the bar and ordered the Empanadas (one beef, one spinach/cheese) and the Salmon Entree. The salmon was perfectly crispy on the outside and cook just right. It is probably the best salmon I've ever...More

So,... I visit Richmond on a regular basis, and when I'm in a mood for a relaxing neighborhood joint, I head straight to Kuba-Kuba. The Cuban sandwich is really good, I grew up near Tampa, FL and that practically makes me an expert in Cuban...More
