This Cuban hot spot is a great find. The food is fresh and flavoursome and the servings are very large. No doubt this accounts for its popularity as on a saturday night there were plenty of people waiting for a table (no bookings). The desserts are great and we loved the coffee sweetened with condensed milk but it is the... More

Each food item was perfectly prepared. out of a party of five, we had no complaints. The presentation was also excellent and the food arrived hot. Don't forget to try the tres leches cake for dessert!

Flavorful, consistent quality, excellent service. This restaurant had been around long enough now providing great meals to qualify as a Fan standard and stalwart. Long longs tell the tale of its enduring popularity and dedicated patrons. Great for brunch, lunch and dinner. The pulled pork is a monster if a dish - sure to satisfy. The plantains also perfectly fried... More

Consistently tasty, fun, and well priced. If you haven't had a coconut risotto cake you should. They are incredible. Everything we have eaten here has been good. Servings are large with tasty sides. Fish, pork, Cuban everything is on the menu. If you are looking for "fine dinning," this may not be your place, but if you want an small,... More

Kuba-Kuba is a hole-in-the-wall kind of restaurant with great cuban food. It is very small and they do not take reservations or seat you until your entire party is there, so plan ahead. it is great for 4 or less people. The paella is fantastic as is the cuban sandwich. The Tres Leches cake is famous there and deserves to... More

Great cuban food, atmosphere and service. Manny's Kuba Kuba is the real deal. My husband (who, like Manny is also from Cuba) endorses the authenticity of the unique flavors and preparation of the dishes - right down to the coffee! We are so lucky to have Manny in Richmond, VA !!

Searched Trip Advisor looking for a restaurant that would offer croquetas, a stable of all Cuban eating. Found this restaurant in Richmond, VA of all the places in the world, so I stopped in. Upon entering the restaurant I noticed that all the workers and cooks behind the counter as well as the wait staff were all gringos. That First... More

My favorite place for cafe con leche! I'm not one of those girls who hits up Starbucks everyday, but if this place was around my house I would definitely be getting my coffee fix from here. It's always super fresh, nice and hot, and super sweet. The Cuban sandwich with the fried plantains are my go to here. This place... More

We decided to try this one after really liking the neighborhood. We had to suffer the terrible parking and had to wait a few minutes, but it was really worth it. This is just a small restaurant but it has a lot of character and charm. I think that has a lot to do with the great friendly staff. We... More
