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.

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

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.

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.

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 😍

First time at Cuba Libre: we will be back!! Food was very tasty, the guava caipiriñha and sangria were big hits too. The live DJ was good and the place was very popular for dancing after 10pm

Great food and great service. The environment could be more exciting. The inside is beautiful but the energy is lacking. Could be more of s fun experience than it is. Food is slightly overpriced for what it is.

The food was great! I was very happy w/ the whole night. Especially the waitress. Dark skin Spanish young lady w/ excellent work ethic. She was very informative, polite yet fun. She went out of her way for us all. She made our night even more special. I'm sorry we can't remember her name but THANK YOU for making our night, my parents 49th Wedding Anniversary even more special!

Everything was delicious! To start, you must try the hummus platter with plantain chips! My son loved the ribs, my daughter couldn’t stop raving about the Havana sandwich, and my husband got the tapas special. For a full Cuban experience I recommend the tapas special. It had a sampling of the appetizers, entrees and 2 desserts of your choice. I enjoyed my citrus chicken but kept trying all my husband’s portions. The desserts were amazing! If you have a sweet tooth, get the rocky road! We thought it was neat that they brought the receipt in a cigar box! Very neat place! A must try!

Great Crab/Guac appetizer. Chicken entree was good and ribs ok. Pork was awful - over cooked and child’s steak was “a scrap of meat.”

Good rum menu. Order selectively. Manager asked how the meal was but was walking away as we were providing feedback....he really did not care. Still charged for overcooked “burnt” pork after feedback. Offering deserts was nice gesture but I did not need the calories. Just serve better food and care!
