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.

When we go to the casino we visit this restaurant because of the hard to find cuban cuisine. Love the beef dishes and of course black beans

Food was good very fresh. It was our daughter's 17th Birthday. The Open Table states if special occasion order dessert 24 hours prior. We ordered the Chocolate Torte which is on the menu.
Don't understand why we had to call 24 hours all they did was put a candle in it. We asked the hostess when we walked in they had that this was a birthday celebration. She said yes they did. When it was time for dessert the waiter brought us dessert menus. He knew nothing. Just disappointed with this part of the meal.

I love this place , I’ve been here a couple of times but their last time I have to say the food was off point . Honestly felt the Cuban sandwich would taste a lot better being a very authentic Cuban delicacy. My husband had the pecking chicken and again the flavor was not there ... I hope to be back soon and enjoy my plate like the other times . It’s such a great place to dine !

This was the second time that we visited this restaurant. The first time the dining experience was much better. This time the food was cold and my dish had to be sent back. Although,we came back later to partake in the latin dancing. Even that was somewhat disappointing. The dances that we were able to dance, were limited. They played more just club dancing than latin dancing. We left early.

Always passed Cuba Libre - our mistake; won't happen again. The restaurant interior is reminiscent of a country courtyard. The lighting and ambiance set the mood which could be a lovely evening to a party later on when they clear the chairs and tables and convert to a dance floor. The food portions were large and delicious. Most important - our server Kelly was efficient and patient. Above all she was pleasant! Will be back again in the future!

Our Server, Cynthia wasn't paying attention to us as often. She gave the table next to us more attention as if we're just not as important. I got a vibe that she didn't do so because she was either busy, or because we appear to be young so she expected a low tip or something. Regardless, that table came 15 minutes after us and they got their food faster and much more attention. Don't think it was Fair. She didn't check to see if our entree was good, or if we were ok. If she had given us that hospitality, she would have gotten a higher tip. Just unfortunate.

The food was delicious, I just wish the serving was more where you can at least take some back to your hotel room =) My friends and I enjoyed the half-priced mojito pitcher that was offered before 6:00 p.m. The waiter was attentive and kind. We made reservations for 6:00 p.m. and we arrived probably around 10 minutes before and we were taken right in. We dined on the second floor which was nice because it felt much more private. Upon giving me the receipt, the waiter informed us the restaurant converts to a nightclub so if we did not have plans, that receipt will get us in for FREE. We took advantage and visited the nightclub which was rather interesting. If I could give the DJ one piece of advice it would be "don't play so many bachata songs back to back" Lol. Overall, we had a nice time.

Only complaint I have that when I cook a reservation it ask for any special requests. I ask for desert cake to say happy birthday but I guess they don’t look at that. But everything was great. Thank you.

Came here with my wife on my birthday weekend. Got to say great tasting food! Was a bit too pricey then what we expected it to be but for a special occasion it was worth it. Had fun being there and they also got a night club Fri-Sat starting 11pm which made it even better.

Excellent food, great service, great atmosphere.

Mix Drinks could use improvements. The sangria was below average, the coconut mojitos tasted like coconut cream with milk.

If you are looking for a latin club, Fridays and Saturdays nights they convert the resturant to a night club after 11pm. Great time.
