Great food and atmosphere. Didn't come to Mt Dora to eat Cuban food but we did and it was excellent. Authentic empanadas and croquettes!

Let me start by saying, "I am Cuban", hence I am bias, that's why I feel qualified to write this review. I have visited this restaurant in several occasions, always expecting for them to improve the flavor of the different dishes they offer; however, sorry to say, nothing has changed. The black beans, were kind of watery, the pork was... More

I went to celebrate my birthday with a friend who is Vegan, and I am a VERY picky eater with food sensitivities, so I thought I would have a hard time finding a place to suit both our tastes. I read reviews on here about this place and when I saw it had a Vegan menu, I figured we'd try... More

I grew up eating at Numero Uno, the Columbia and Rolando's here in Central Florida, so I have a very high standard when it comes to Cuban cuisine. Copacabana has set the new bar for Cuban. Wow! We were running back to our car from the Farmers Market to avoid a rain storm when we were hit with the aroma... More

This little restaurant has a lot to offer; good food, outdoor seating, friendly staff. We dined for lunch, with both of us having the Cuban sandwich which was very good and served with black beans. We also tried a glass of Sangria that was nice, but served in a very small wine glass with no ice. If you are looking... More
