Wow! We brought our three kids (10, 9, 5) and it was very kid friendly. Plenty of room inside and outside. We had never tried Cuban food and our server was very kind and knowledgable. She was tremendous in answering all of our questions, and we had a lot. The food was then... A-mazing! We loved it. There is a... More

I eat here a couple times a year when I visit Mount Dora for various festivals. I also made a special trip here for my birthday dinner. The food here is great, you can't really go wrong. But I have to admit that I love the classic Cuban sandwich the best. Make sure you try there house made sauces. They... More

Love their masitas and sweet plantains! The pork is fried crispy on the outside but tender enough to cut with a fork. Service can be spotty, but the food is worth it.

We are from Miami so we know a thing or two about Cuban restaurants and let me tell you that this place impressed us. My husband had the palomilla steak with rice, black beans and sweet plantains and I ordered a T-bone steak with a side salad and both were delicious. The service and the price were also very reasonable.... More

What a great place to eat! The food is incredible and the service is excellent. I read a negative review about this place and I am surprised. December is a busy month and for sure your are going to see this kind of inconveniences. But, Copacabana is a wonderful restaurant. The Owners are very attentive and professional. Thank you to...

I have been coming here since Copacabana first open, and while they had a few teething problems in the beginning, this place has turned into one of the best Cuban restaurants I have ever been to, easily on par with anything in Miami and Little Havana. The basics- rice and bean, Plantains and Cuban bread are all good, and every... More

I have attempted to eat a Copacabana three times. The first time the service was terrible, took us over two hours to receive our food. The second time I was with eight of my friends for lunch. When approaching the desk to get a table no one greeted or spoke to me when requesting a table. We were then seated... More

Chicken, chk pea soup and beef soup were terrible and cold. Bad and unprofessional staff. It look very unprepared and unprofessional to serve food like this. Save time and money. And go somewhere else.
