Excellent service, excellent food. Staff is extremely accommodating and pleasant, and makes you feel like you're a regular. Forget Miami or waiting for Cuban relations to normalize, I drive from Orlando whenever I have the urge for good Cuban food. Alberto and his staff do a fantastic job and makes you feel welcome and they are consistent with service and... More

Dined with a group of 24 for office Christmas party. Made reservations 3 months in advance. Verified twice in past week. When we arrived they were unprepared and said they don't take reservations.. Seriously?! With that being said.. The staff did an amazing job accommodating us. The service was fast and efficient once they started rolling. Food was delicious and... More

We have eaten here many times. We've never had a bad meal here. The food is always very good. The portions are very generous. The service staff is always very friendly and helpful. The prices are more then competitive for Mt. Dora. This visit was no different and didn't disappoint. If there is a negative? Parking can be a bit... More

Copacabana does not take reservations. We were 11 adults. I called twice in 2 days, got two different people and two different polices. One said no reservations but call ahead, the other said no call ahead but they take wait list - wouldn't take my name (always a bad sign). We get there on Sat night, outdoor bar area had... More

The Saturday night my wife and I went to Mount Dora for the lighting of the downtown (see my review of the Hampton Inn) we decided to give the cuban restaurant named Copacabana a try after reading such favorable reviews. Keep in mind that this particular night people attendance is at least five times as much as a regular Saturday... More

The food was good but the service was so bad we won't be back. Had to get drinks from the bar, dinner took an hour after we finally ordered, plates piled up at the table.... on and on plus $11 ordinary mojitos means we will skip it next time.

My wife is from the Islands so the food must be authentic and homemade. Our dinner was superb and the owner stopped by 3 times to check on us. Highly recommend for great island fare.
