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 for a Valentines brunch. Just the right amount food, pleased with our server's willingness to work around our gluten issues. Cuba Libre never disappoints.

Went on Saturday night. Be prepared to spend $18 on parking. Drinks were good and about 10-12 each.
The Cuban sandwich was good. My girlfriend got some tapas dishes. Those were not great. Plus they were all fried. She was very disappointed. Also, the chips and 3 dips had soo few chips that barely used half the dip, then charged 3 bucks more for 4 more CHIPS.
Our table was also next to 2 bathrooms and the kitchen on the first floor. I overheard some people who worked there talking about our tables who said they shouldn't be there. No kidding we watched everyone who went to the bathroom. Very romantic view....Lol. I get it was busy but don't add tables outside the bathroom to compensate.

A birthday celebration for our children. We have been here at least 10 times in the past and this was our child’s choice. Food is consistently good. It was really quiet on a Tuesday so this was a nice choice for us. Tried a mango margarita this trip and it was delicious. Had almost every appetizer, one entree, one seafood soup and the banana bread for 4 people.we ordered too much food but the variety was great.

Prices are a little high for the amount of food. Crab guac was good, but for $17, should have been twice as much crab. Latin pastry assortment was very small for the price. Slider should have 2 sliders for the price and 5 fries is just rediculous.
