Great Cuban and great service

It's often hard to find good Cuban Food, but this definitely exceeds the standard! Great atmosphere and the cuisine is authentic. The owner noticed we hadn't been served and immediately stepped in. He served us for the entire visit and provided great service! Will come back!

I prefer the chicken and pork dishes in Cuban restaurants and the pernil pork dish is fantastic here. My spouse loves the tamales, and the monitors are out of this world! Service is very good here, maybe a little laid back, but hey it's the Cuban island kind of mañana feel when you step into the restaurant! I will be... More

We ate here on a Sunday, around 12:30, which would normally be the prime lunch hour. Most of Mount Dora was quiet and this restaurant was only about half full when we got there. We were seated almost immediately, but the lady who sat us didn't ask for a drink to get started. (We would have at least liked some... More

Go! You won't believe how delicious the food is until you try it yourself! Appetizer: Tamales (pork) Dinners: Copacabana plate (grilled yumminess!) Masitas de puerco and yellow rice (tasty!) Drinks: margaritas made with Herradura Anejo, perfect!

This restaurant was a very pleasant and tasty surprise. We have been to Mount Dora numerous times and have never tried Copacabana. I'm glad someone recommended this place! The food was awesome, the portions were more than one person could eat and it was warm and homey...all for a very reasonable price. The place was busy, but we were seated... More

My friends and I quickly stopped by Copacabana craving a refreshing Cuban Mojito. I am Cuban American and I like to think that I know what a good mojito tastes like, and their Mojito was pretty good. Not anything crazy and out of this world good, but it was refreshing and what I was looking for. Only issue with my... More

This is the REAL deal in Cuban Cuisine. Never had even a mediocre meal here. The service and friendliness are great and the atmosphere super for Lunch of Dinner. If you like Flan.. GO Early!, but the guave aor Coconut breadpudding is a super back up and the Coffee... well its just excellent.

We are from out of town, so we just stumbled across this place. Since we are from an area with a high Cuban population, we have had quite a bit of Cuban food. So it was quite unexpected to find excellent Cuban food in an out-of-the-way place like Mt. Dora. My wife ordered the Fricase de Polo con Papas and... More
