About

Passing through the doors of Cuba Libre in The Quarter at Tropicana Atlantic City transports guests to Havana, Cuba of the 1950s.

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.

Food was great and restaurant space gave a nice vibe but the the people next to us weren’t happy with their service which we did witness and that give us a guarded view to the way were were serviced but for the most part we had a good experience.

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.

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!

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.

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.
