Always amazing food and solid, friendly service. Definitely recommend the pineapple guacamole and coconut mojito. Every entree we’ve had has been amazing but my personal favorite us the Peking chicken. Everything including the interior of this place takes you right to Havana. Amazing.

I had a flank steak entree and it was a little tough, but the flavor was good. My sangria was excellent. The portion size on the appetizers was a bit small for the price. I wish I had ordered the paella; it looked really good. I had appetizers, drinks, entree and dessert and I left still a bit hungry. I would definitely go back. I just wish the portion sizes were a little larger. The music was a bit loud and I had to shout over it to talk to the people at my table.

Waiter forgot to place the order for our daughter’s dinner. We asked three times where her dinner was and still no dinner. Finally stopped a manager and after another almost 45 minutes got her dinner. Food is amazing, service is atrocious.

Great atmosphere and even better food. We had a party of 8 and tried a lot of different starters and entrees together. Everything was excellent. I haven't had paella this good since I lived in Spain.

We came to Cuba Libre to celebrate my B’day. The server Richelle made our night very pleasant, always attentive and the timing of her service was excellent. Our food taste was superb.! I had the Pardo Frito and my guest had the Pez Cabía. Our server recommended the appetizer Ceviche Mixto. It was a great choice. About the interior of the restaurant, you need to go to experience it by yourself, it is amazing.!

The Mojitos appeared watered down and the $31 Churrasco steak was overcooked and tough as shoe leather, and only accompanied by some water cress. The Ceviche appetizer was good, but pricey at $17. The Paella serving seemed more like a starter than an Entre. All in all, expensive and not great quality, even by the low I-Drive standards.

Food and Service were 5 out of 5 - I would go back and just drink beer not a mixed drink.
