In the Fan District of Richmond, VA is a slice of Cuba, spelled w a K. This tiny slice of heaven has street parking only but I have never had to walk more than a block in this historic district. Prices like a reasonable but...More

Hubby and I were in town for the weekend. We are puertorican so definitely wanted to try Caribbean food. Place is small but cozy, busy after 7pm. Food is okay...not my favorite, to my Hispanic palate, it was bland. Will I be back? No. Do...More

The food, ambiance and service were amazing! We had the turnovers, pork and tres leches cake. All did not disappoint. I would eat here for all three meals if I could. The atmosphere is comfortable and we were treated like we were "regulars"

1st off this place is (as Guy F would say) funky but a good funky. It is small but the staff is friendly and the food is off the hook good. If you are in Richmond and have the time treat yourself.

Had to wait about five minutes just to be acknowledged, but it was all uphill from there. Service was great, ambience was great, food was amazing! Such great blends of flavors. Highly recommend. Go early - it's small.

Seven friends and I recently enjoyed the food from this restaurant via takeout. Our group ordered a variety of entrées and all were to our liking. The plantains were especially delicious! The only negative was that the lettuce used in the avocado salad was a...More

We did a little detour from our road trip to stop at this highly-lauded little eatery. Maybe it was the ecstatic write-up, or our hunger, or the tons of newspaper articles on the wall that heightened our excitement... and our expectations. However, the food did...More
