Again, a great experience. We always try something new and are pleasantly surprised
Love this restaurant. This is the first place we dine when arriving in Orlando
We really weren’t expecting to have such a wonderful experience, the food was delicious, our server Monica, did and outstanding job, the desserts were great.
When I arrived 8 minutes late for my birthday reservation, 1 of the 4 girls (she had purple hair) at the hostess stand quickly blurted out "They're late!" with an attitude. While she was correct, the attitude was not necessary and the restaurant was completely empty. It was very rude and a horrible 1st impression! Our waitress was lovely, pleasant, friendly & knowledgeable. The service, however, was painfully slow. My appetizer was fried plantains- they were hard like cardboard. My churrasco steak was hardly "ok", had zero latin flavor to it. I was starving because we had waited so long for food, so I ate it all. Maybe I'm particular because I am Cuban-American, but it just had no Latin flair or flavor to it at all. Food-wise, I felt more like I was at Cracker Barrel than a nice, Cuban restaurant. My mojito was bland. In a nutshell, the food is quite overpriced and mediocre at best- and the service was lacking. The ambiance and restaurant decor was really BEAUTIFUL! The birthday dessert display at the end was great and a lot of fun. I chose the flan, which was yummy! The remaining aspects, however, leave much to be desired. I'm glad I finally got to try it, but I have no plans on returning.
First time eating Cuban food. Great service I just didn’t enjoy the food
Absolutely fantastc! Everything from drinks to dessert was delicious and all served by exceptional wait staff. You must get the Café Cuba Libre.
Food was great, be sure to try the rum flight!
Cafe Cuba Libre!
We like Cuba Philly but food was off here in Orlando. Not as consistent ! We love Cuba so willing to give it another try next time
We tried the 15 chef sampler - good small portions. Excellent shrimp, steak and other mini sides.
Good waiter. Knowledgeable and attentive. Didnt like my mojoito based on his recommendation but my wifes was good (mango)
Good value and atmosphere. See pics
Samplers. Octopus. Ceviche ( was ok)
Ps. Grilled octopus was really good.
The restaurant was absolutely gorgeous, the service was okay. As a Cuban I can tell you that the food was not authentic. They use salsas and hummus that are not true of the Cuban culture even the desserts were done wrong the music was a complete let down no Salsa music playing at all while we were having our dinner. Aside from this it was extremely over priced for the food.
Really a superb night out. Attentive service but not overwhelming, drinks are well crafted, highly recommend the grilled pineapple mojito if you like a sweeter drink. The food was great but it's not my Cuban grandmother's food. Our waiter told us it was modern and updated, he was right. The flavors were there but there were several twists and turns, overall a great meal! Limited wine selection, wish they would update but the red wine sangria made it all Good! Overall highly recommend and look forward to tasting the rest of the menu!
Great food with original twists to classic Cuban fare.
Very busy and service was good/bad during our busy. Lots of large groups and the high ceilings contribute to the noise level being high. Food was good and portions were large.
This was an excellent choice-I'm from NYC and this was great I will be back again for my birthday
Don't expect authentic Cuban food. It feels very touristy, food is ok, but expensive. Our server was awesome, and the decor was nice.
The restaurant turns into a dancing night club at 9 PM. We were there before that happened. Sat at the bar and watched the Olympics. Jason was a great bartender and guided us through their specials and mixed some great adult beverages. To me the key is would you return - we will next time we visit Orlando.
We were visiting Orlando from Arizona and stayed in a hotel walking distance away. We chose Cuba Libre and weren’t disappointed! We were seated on the patio which was lovely weather but not very comfortable, and quite noisy. But the food was out of control! Delicious Cuban bread served with mango butter which tasted refreshing and cinnamony! Even asked for the recipe and our server gave us the ingredients at least ;) all the meat was delicious! So perfect. My husband had a huge seafood dish that he loved! the albodigas, I’ve dreamt about since. Don’t miss it! The Cuban sand which has some extra stuff that my son didn’t enjoy but otherwise everything was fantastic!
First time here to celebrate our anniversary. Food and dessert really good. Our server George was great.
Absolutely one of my favorite restaurants. The onion rings are amazing! If you like hot stuff.
What a great restaurant. Our party of 7 was very happy. Nani took great care of us and was a wonderful guide through the menu.
What an amazing experience this was! Jens was so great at helping us with the menu and it questions, he offered great input and advice. Looking forward to going back!
Food was amazing. Never had cuban food like this one before. Ambient very nice. I say everything was just perfect.
Service was spotty. Food quality was average at best meaning value was substantially under average. Will not be back.
Love the restaurant. Great food and drinks. I felt like I was in Cuba. The waitress Sueli was so nice to my 4 year old daughter. They gave my daughter and I a rose for valentine day. Staff was nice. If you sit outside the table is wobbly due to brinks. Waitress tried to fix it. But honestly I liked the wobble felt like I was in Cuba
Great place to go out with your couple for a night.
The device was exceptional. We went to celebrate a birthday and had a wonderful time.
Absolutely amazing. Our waitress, Monica, was incredible. Everytime we go, we are never disappointed.
Great food. Seriously amazing service. So great that I went back two nights in a row. Two thumbs up!
Fantastic place to impress anyone (family, friends, business, or client). Only issue I had was being charged exiting the parking garage, even though I provided a validated parking ticket.
Great recommendations from Travis - lots of options you won’t find everywhere plus fun atmosphere!
Server was amazing and it was an amazing memory to create.
Tasting Menu was excellent! Great way to try different menu choices. Service was fantastic! Restaurant was beautiful.
Server was welcoming, friendly, and made good recommendations. We went for drinks and appetizers, as there’s quite a bunch to try.
The second attempt in trying the churrasco plate and for the second time they didn't get the temperature correctly. Server was nice, but when asking my husband his age and where he is from it became uncomfortable. Its okay to build rapport with guests, but watch personal questions.
We had to chase her down to get a pen for the check, and they had the audicty to charge us for the steak after again hunting mgmt he took care of it. Overall our group enjoyed themselves.music is awesome. Ambience is great. They just need to retrain on steak temperature to perfect such a common dish. I would recommend ropa vieja dish..very tasty.
Birthday was amazing
Pretty authentic and very delicious. The tasting menu was a foodie adventure worth taking!
OK not good. Would not go back low value for food quality and price
I’m from Miami and have Cuban food all the time, but the food here blew me away. The flavor in all the dishes we had were amazing. Desserts were just as good.
Great food and service. I am Vegan and there where some great options to choose from. I recommend the Cuban Coffee with a shot of rum it was delicious. For the table bread if you are Vegan ask for no butter spread. One of my favorite restaurants to go to on a date night with my husband 😍
