Cuba Libre Restaurant & Rum Bar - Atlantic City
The restaurant's brand new wood-burning grill and chef's counter greets guests upon entering, with wood-fired menu items to be enjoyed fireside at the 12-person counter, or from anywhere in the dining room. Guests will experience a true taste of Old Havana with James Beard Award-winning Chef-Partner's menu of classic and contemporary Cuban cuisine. There's something for everyone, ranging from simply-grilled meats and seafood, to Cuban classics like Ropa Vieja, Vaca Frita, Shrimp con Mojo, or the Grilled Vegetable Paella.
The atmosphere offers the unique combination of Latin warmth, flavor and splendor. One-of-a-kind millwork and architectural salvage help capture the essence of old Cuban architecture. Colorful exotic foliage and palm trees add to Cuba Libre's open-air, tropical ambiance.
Excellent meal as usual. Friendly, efficient service, ambiance very nice -- decor is old Havana -- ceiling fans, dark woods, wrought iron lighting fixtures, Cuban music in the background, lighting is low to help with atmosphere.
Extensive menu and drinks list with a number of specialty cocktails. We began with a classic mojito and coconut mojito -- both very well made and very good.
For dinner I had "Visit to Havana" which is the pressed Cuban sandwich made with sour orange marinated pork loin, Genoa salami, ham, provolone, and Swiss cheese and yellow mustard pickle relish. The sandwich is huge and delicious. Accompaniments are: a cup of black bean soup, house salad, and tropical chips which are plantains.
All of it was nicely prepared and presented and everything was very good.
Husband had Shrimp Con Mojo which is ten pan-seared citrus marinated jumbo shrimp accompanied by onions, peppers, sliced garlic, crisped yuca, white rice with cilantro-lime mojo sauce. Also exellent.
Dessert was a Cuban flan -- traditional vanilla custard with candied mango and papaya on top and a vanilla cookie on the side.
Coffee -- one Americano and one Cuban coffee with steamed coconut milk which is a dessert in itself because it is so good and sweet.
The restaurant offers beef, pork, chicken, and seafood dishes -- all beautifully prepared. Have eaten here many times and it is consistently a great meal with very good service in a nice atmosphere.
It was the middle of the week so it was quiet. I always enjoy Cuba Libre. Food was delicious. Sangria was also very tasty. Tres leches cake was yummy. Ambiance and service always pleasant.
I went here to celebrate my husband’s birthday. The waiter was knowledgeable and recommended drinks and food. The food and drinks were great. I would recommend this restaurant
Great spot for a girls night. Good food, drinks, music. The first floor opens up to become a dance floor around 11pm. Great dj, fun crowd!
Birthday get together with family and friends.
Another amazing meal at Cuba Libre. The Vaca Frita was bursting with flavor and the empanadas were delicious. As always, the staff was friendly and quick with seating and service. Highly recommend it if you haven’t been here before!
Meal was excellent but the mohito was horrible ! Otherwise We had a great time!
LOVE Cuba Libre! Great flavors, great ambiance. The Churrasco was positively delish!
I thought that overall the food and atmosphere was excellent. When we first got there, there were people running around filling up your water and taking care of your table. The longer that we stayed, the less frequent these people were. Overall, it was a great time.
The service and food was really good. I will be back!
Our waiter was fantastic and food was amazing, as always.
First time eating at Cuba Libre. Aside from the cold hostess greeting and then being ushered upstairs, away from the more fun, themed part of the restaurant, we were very pleased. The food and drinks were delicious and our waitress was pleasant, helpful and attentive. Knowing what I do now, the next visit, I will insist on being seated downstairs where a winter coat is not needed and the more immersive experience can be had. I would definitely recommend to anyone looking for a unique dining experience with delicious cuban cuisine.
The food was very good. The portions were a bit small for the price but overall it was very tasty.
Very good meal and attentive staff.
Really love the food, drinks, service and ambiance.
Felt like s mini vacation - will come back with friends.

I came to Cuba Libre this past Saturday night to celebrate my mother’s birthday. I give this restaurant a 20 out of 10. It exceeded my expectations. The food and the drinks were amazing, the ambiance was spectacular. In addition, the staff was extremely accommodating to my needs. I would 100% recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for great food, experience and a good time.
Cely was a great server!
Amazing waitress was great
Whether in Philly or AC, Cuba Libre is consistently good food and drink, well-presented and ably served.
Chef’s Tasting Menu did not disappoint. Great dinner, great atmosphere.
Jonathan was an excellent server and the food was delicious. Only complaint is trying to seat customers in front of the waiters station, where you have a constant glance at someone's backside. Not a good first impression
Good food and drinks are to be found at this nice Atlantic City casino dining room. Authentically Cuban cuisine, in a great atmosphere. Have a look at the beautiful automobile parked outside !
Amazing experience!!! Great atmosphere, food, waiter Chris was the best and very accommodating. Will be back here for sure 🥂🍾💃🏻
Overall everything was great for the dining experience since it was our first time. We actually went back for the dancing and entertainment part and the music (DJ) was not good at all. Not only did we leave after one drink, others were leaving as well. Not good, you need a live DJ.
All was good. Service at end was slow only one waiter.
Wonderful food. Great ambiance in AC!
We enjoyed the ceviche and dinner, but the service was too fast. We were in and out in 45 minutes. We like to be a little more leisurely when we are dining out.
Birthday dinner and service was awesome!!
Our server was awesome! And the banana bread for dessert was out of this world. Would go back just for the banana bread.
Great food and service
Yet another delicious meal. So enjoyable.
Food was wonderful Entrees were brought before we were done with our appetizers. The server appeared to rush
The service. It really put a damper on the meal
