I have been stopping here since they opened and as yet have not been disappointed. The owner is very gracious and tends to your every need with a smile. The wait staff are also friendly and the food is very good.

The food is really delicious and they have a great selection. But my family and I have been there when there was a wait for seating and pretty much half empty, but the service was the same......S-L-O-W. Nice covered outdoor seating.

I'll just say this - no matter what you order, the food will be authentic and delicious! Their house specialty mojito is fantastic. I am particularly fond of the Ropa Viega and their Masitas Pork. The portion are large (even at lunch time), so you could split a meal if you're small eaters. Their outdoor patio is beautiful and inviting... More

There is a wonderful outdoor seating area that is quiet with plants and shade. Have one of their fresh cocktails such as a mojito and listen to authentic Cuban music. If you prefer to eat indoors, enjoy the cozy booth seating and rustic design. Finally, they serve healthy portions of distinctive cuisine.. Very well priced. The atmosphere is laid back,... More

We were there for the first time on Sunday during the Mt. Dora Craft Show, and every restaurant in town was packed, with people waiting in lines. A busy staff was to be understood. Someone seated us, someone else took our drink order, our waiter took our food order and that was the only time we saw him, except when... More

We just visited Copacabana Restaurant for the first time on Saturday while visiting Mount Dora this past weekend. Being Cubans we were excited to have found another Cuban restaurant to check out. We went for lunch therefore we had sandwiches and did not get to try any of the dinner dishes. The sandwiches were good. There were 3 in our... More

Last Saturday we had dinner at Copacabana in Mt Dora. They did not have a host/hostess to seat customers. There was a waiter at the front desk entering data into a computer, he did not look up to greet us, just told us to wait. We waited about 15 minutes until he completed what he was doing and then we... More

We love this place and wish it were closer to home. We enjoyed it so much during our 1st Mount Dora trip that it was a "must eat" during the 2nd! Splurge for the Copacabana mojitos. The Cuban is huge and hits the spot... I crave a good Cuban every now and again. LOVE the yellow rice and black beans... More
