Brought back memories of my grandmother's cooking. Good, authentic Cuban food! I had the Picadillo with Moro rice and Maduros and it was delicious! My friend had the Ropa Vieja and was impressed. Prices not bad at all considering the amount of food you get and they do really good lunch specials Mon-Fri. Highly recommend!

We live nearby and eat here every few months. The food is always excellent! The service is slow and you always have to flag a server or busser, but the owner visits every table frequently. It always feels like you are eating at a friend's house! We always get tostones for an appetizer. Cuban sandwich and masitas for dinner. Make... More

Copa has delicious food time after time. We are regulars at this particular place and have wonderful meals everytime we go. Their chimm-churri dressing is the best! My favorite dish on the menu is the #3.. Fried chicken breast (2), smothered in cooked onions with a bowl of black beans and a helping of yummy yellow rice and a salad.... More

The food here is always excellent and the owner always makes it a point to come out and greet everyone. Don't be surprise if he waits your table either. Great family atmosphere and friendly wait staff.

This was our first visit and we plan on coming back to try some of their other meals. You must not confuse Mexican with Cuban. flavors not as strong. They do offer a couple of mustard-colored sauces that spiced up the meats. Not a yucca fan but with the garlic topping, it was ok. My husband's pork dish was tender... More

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
