A word from Cuba Libre Restaurant & Rum Bar - Atlantic City
Passing through the doors of Cuba Libre Restaurant and Rum Bar in The Quarter at Tropicana Casino & Resort in Atlantic City transports guests to Old Havana, Cuba of the 1940s.

The restaurant's atmosphere offers the unique combination of Latin warmth, flavor and splendor - from the "movie set" re-creation of an Old Havana street scene to the steamy Cuban rhythms. One-of-a-kind millwork and architectural salvage including unique doors, gates, cabinetry, furniture and accessories help capture the essence of old Cuban architecture. Colorful exotic foliage and large potted palm trees add to Cuba Libre's open-air, tropical ambiance. Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "We arrived a bit late for our reservation, but they accomodated us fine. Server was knowledgeable an friendly and didn't pressure us as we looked through the menu as everything looked so good. Since It was Late We ordered tappas. The food was delicious. The Cuban cocktails were delicious. As we sat after our meal a bus person came to take our dishes with her hands already full and knocked a dirty knife on my wife's white pants and just walked away without saying a word. Our waitress did see this and brought over club soda, that was the only drawback, we everything else was fine."

  • "I wasn't so impressed with this place. The food was OK, nothing special or worth raving over. The mojitos are TERRIBLE. It's a nice atmosphere and our waitress was great. But the people greeting you in at the front are terrible and should be replaced. They told us they were completely booked for a table of 7 as I was there with a group of friends celebrating a birthday. We even asked if they could split us up into 2 tables and they said no. But I was able to reserve 2 tables through Open Table. Such liars. I will never go to this place again or recommend it, unless it's ONLY for the bar scene."

  • "The "Tastes of Cuba" dinner is a wonderfully delicious selection of very generous portions at a bargain price. The remainder of the menu is equally well-prepared and reasonably priced. Service was rushed (which was especially inexcusable as we dined quite early)."

  • "The last time I went to CL there food was so good I would salivate just thinking about it After this past weekend we were not impressed at all. We ordered three appetizers: guacamole, shrimp mixto, & yuca.fritas. none were as good as I remembered them to be 2 years ago. The guacamole had pineapple which is disgusting. The only good part about appetizers was the bread and butter! For entrees we ordered the churasco. This was good.. not perfect but.good. as for our waiter, he was nice but didn't come.around to check on us as much as he should have. My friend ordered the salmon and ended up sending it back. He was happy to help her with this and brought her the ropa.vieja. instead and she liked it."

  • "My friend and I ate at Cuba Libre two nights ago. The food was divine: we had mojitos, guacamole, ribs and salmon and everything was delicious. The setting was fun and lively. But our service was super-slow -- dinners all around us were eating and leaving long before any food came to our table. I guess our particular server was not the best."

  • "LOTS of bachelorette parties --- SERIOUSLY. My boyfriend asked if he was the only dude when we walked in. But, it was a great experience. The appetizers and tapas are much better than the rest of the food, but everything was great. Would recommend to a friend, for sure."

  • "Stay away, they did not honor the resrvation, lied about table availability, acted like thugs at a manhatten club )gawd its atlantic city) and benerally very rude to my familyand me. Not fit for a family, specializes in drunk bachelorettes and those who hunt this species"

  • "Being very excited to dine there ,I was just a little disappointed ..the drinks ( mojito) were very good and pricey from $9-12. Appetizers were delicious but prior to that I was told their specialty bread would be out soon well I had to ask "3" times!! Which mind you came out after appetizers.lol...but it was good ...my dinner choice was the " mango mojito shrimp" ( on the menu $25) 6 very nice large shrimp that I thought was going to have a Latin mango flavor as described etc..well I only got to eat 1 1/2 It was sooooo salty I couldn't bear it! Had absolutely NO MANGO MOJITO flavor what's so ever but just the taste of salt with bok Choy I was really disgusted at that point..very politely I sent it back. And didn't order another"

  • "I have been here once before when in Atlantic City. The food is solidly well prepared and fresh. On this visit I had black bean soup as an appetizer, which was very good, though I personally prefer when it has at least a small kick, which it did not have. My mojito shrimp were very flavorful and well worth ordering. The cost was moderately high, though for a casino hotel restaurant, it probably was more in the moderate range and a good value. The service was polite and attentive without being overbearing. The atmosphere is casual and festive. Save some of your money to visit Cuba Libre before gambling it away."

  • "Great service, staff, ambience! A little pricey but everything we ate was wonderful! Portion size not huge so you leave full but not stuffed and I would highly recommend the caipirinhas! I preferred the guava but it's a great (but strong) drink! Loved it!"
    Dined on 6/26/2014
  • "From the time I arrived and the server came by to gently drape my napkin in my lap, I knew I was in for something special. For starters I had a Mint, Ginger and Honey Caipirinha; my hubby had a Havana Iced Tea. Our tropical drinks came quickly and were well made. For our main course, we ordered a Plato Gaucho. It contained a LARGE sirloin steak and a rolled skirt steak; both steaks were incredibly tender. This entree also contained 2 chorizo sausage links, 4 large shrimp and 2 moderately sized chicken breasts. I found the chicken was a little too heavily seasoned with sage for my liking, but everything else on the plate was fantastic as were the dipping sauces. The server was attentive but not clingy. Just a perfect evening!"

  • "We really enjoy Cuba Libre. The food is always excellent, the atmosphere makes us feel as though we are in Havana. The drinks are delicious. Recommend the Guantanamo Bay and the Raspberry Mojito, which are the drinks we had this time, although all that we've had are great. I also recommend the sea bass. We were not rushed through and had a fabulous meal and a good time. Service, too, was excellent. Dinner was great from start to finish, and we finished with cafe con leche and cafe Cuba Libre."
