Went here to celebrate 5 years of marriage. Waitress was awesome offered complimentary glass of champagne. She knew the menu like she cooked it. The environment was awesome, service top notch, and if I was a late night bird we would have Salased the night away.
Love this place, come to North Carolina

If I could give 10 stars I would! We loved everything about this place. The service was fabulous, the food was delicious, and the ambiance was fun. We had the dinner for two and the meat was tender and well flavored. Can’t recommend this place enough. We may even go back again before we leave!

The food, drinks, desserts were all amazing!! We had a group of 6 and there was something for everyone (vegetarian, seafood-only eater, etc.)! We had confusing messages at the beginning related to happy hour drinks, but overall our waitress was awesome! The confusion happened before she even came to our table, so it wasn't her fault.

Kind of expensive for what you get but the food is good. It is somewhat Americanized Cuban. The craft rum selection is unique.

The food was great and my waitress was really good. The hostesses are rude and when we paid for dinner we left to the bar area and we sat there for 5 minutes with no acknowledgement. When I mentioned this to the bartender she’s didn’t care just said well ok. When you have customers you would already greet them we ended up leaving and going to blue martini who had great customer service !

We ordered the sample platter that included a variety of appetizers and entrees. We enjoyed all of it. The flavors were delicious. The drinks weren't anything special, though, so don't get your hopes up for an amazing mojito. It was just ok. Desserts (flan and tiramisu) were outstanding.

We sat at the bar for happy hour. Top-notch service from both bar tenders/servers. Quality drinks, delicious small plates (croquetas, ceviche, and crab fritters were highlights), and an excellent value in the otherwise International Drive food wasteland.

Great restaurant, loved the food, service, and atmosphere - mostly - reserving with Open Table we usually get a very good table but this one was at the front door where everyone came in and stopped, infringed on our space a little

My husband and I went to Cuba Libre with another couple for dinner. It was first time for all of us. We will definitely return, our server. Maria, was very friendly, attentive and patient with us as we wanted to linger. Everything we ordered was very tasty. The variety of monitors was fun and tasty. Beautiful space!

Its my 4th time @ Cuba libre staff was wonderful and food was magnificent as always. Night was cut short and moved to Main Event. Felt like the night died off after that. I love both places individually, but this was not the night I had planed. I booked my reservation over a week in advance and found out there was a private event 3 dyas before my arrival. Leaving me very little time to make other plans. Wish I would Ive known prior. I was bringing friends for the 1st time and they didn't get to enjoy themselves like I was expexting. Thats the reason for 3 stars for overall.

I heard about Cuba Libre from my best friend who loves to have a great time & dance salsa. She made sure I booked a reservation when I landed in Orlando. Had a fabulous experience! Our server was Chester! He was so cool and had amazing energy! The most accommodating server I ever had. He treated my grandparents so graciously :) He really took the time to engage with us. Overall 10/10 service!! I loved the ambiance! Being of Cuban decent I’ve always wanted to visit my homeland. Cuba Libre definitely took me to “old Havana”. I can not wait to visit Orlando again and party in Cuba Libre during its weekend/night life which the hostesses raves about.
Looking forward to trying out the Atlantic City location since I’m from NY

The Vaca Frita was MUY DELICIOSO!!

Great atmosphere, good service, food was good; the downsize was the cost.. $62.00 for just meat for two, than add the cost for sides to go with it and half a pitcher of Sangria $120.00 plus tip! Too pricey and you can get just as good or better food at other Colombian restaurants for half the price... At least we tried it, but will not be back just because of the cost.

I’m at the restaurant over the world are coming to this one. Overpriced on the food for no reason. I know you have an over abundance of space and and and and rent. But to have the gas paid for that that’s overpriced well he does pretty good but I had better movie does another restaurants in the Orlando area.
