I had lunch here today and really enjoyed myself. It's a small spot that has a lot of character. I ordered the slow roasted pork lunch entree and it was great. The pork was tender and flavorful along with the black beans, rice, and plantains. It was a lot of food and tasty. I like a lot of spice and... More

My wife and I went to Kuba Kuba to enjoy my daughters birthday with my son in law. We arrived on a Saturday evening at 5pm and were immediately given a booth. I advise that if you don’t want to wait to be seated (as its a small restaurant) to arrive between 5-5:30 as there were lines outside the door... More

With a broken airplane delaying my departure and keeping me "stuck" till next morning, I ventured (Ubered) to the lovely Fan District in Richmond for dinner. Kuba-Kuba was hopping on a Thursday. Filled with locals and families, the atmosphere was fun and funky and I grabbed a stool at the bar. The fried crab cake and spinach special was generous... More

Having lived in Miami for many years I was excited to try Kuba Kuba.... It was great. Service is a bit slow but the food is delicious. There is nothing on the menu I haven't enjoyed. Its all good... Especially the deserts.

We didn't walk in until 9 and it was still busy, which is a good sign. I ordered the snapper and it was the best fish ever! I think they gave me half the snapper, the portion was so large! The other guest had the kebab pork meal and again seemed like a pound of pork! The spinach ricotta empanadas... More

We ate for the first time at Kuba Kuba yesterday for dinner. Atmosphere was great!. Service by Angelica was outstanding. Angelica was very friendly, outgoing and helpful. Having never eaten there before, she described the menus and also then suggested the most popular items. We finally decided on the Portobello Press for my wife and the Chicken Pineapple Sandwich for... More

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

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
