Cuba Libre features a contemporary interpretation of traditional Cuban cuisine and a broad base of authentic Cuban cocktails, including the largest selection of rum in Philadelphia. The restaurant’s interior has a beautifully weathered historical feel. The materials combine warm mahogany and oak, cracked tile, painted plaster, exposed concrete and brick, and iron railings. With iron balconies overlooking a courtyard, a dramatic 30-foot ceiling, and paddle fans turning lazily, the space looks and feels like a street in Old Havana in the mid 1950s.

We went on a slow Monday night. It was perfect for us because it was quiet. Service was quick and the waitress was very polite. Oh yeah, it was restaurant week in center city. Only complaint; there was only 1 option for dessert. Bread pudding. It didn't "wow" me. Overall good experience non-the-less

Made a reservation for 7 and another for 6 people. They were able to accomodate us at a single table and graciously added 4 additional people we picked up on the way. The food is outstanding. Great classic Mojitos. Everyone enjoyed it.

Started with grilled octopus. Absolutely delicious. The red snapper entree was great. Dessert was the perfect ending with banana chocolate chip bread pudding. Loved my pineapple mojito. Friendly service and lovely ambiance.

Cuba Libre is one of our go-to spots for special occasions. It has great food and ambiance and never disappoints. This time it was a birthday party and it was a great celebration. Only come here if you like great appetizers, drinks, entrees, desserts, coffees, and fun.

Did not like the tapas, music was too loud, service was not great, overpriced for what was included in brunch. The room looks cool though. Save your money!
