I prefer to find Cuban food south of Miami and in the country served in a family owned diner, but Cuba Libre came pretty close and was convenient to our hotel. If I thought I could have eaten it all, I would have ordered the 15 Tastes of Cuba. The service staff was very attentive and made sure that we... More

I was very surprised that Cuba Libre served up some very good Cuban style food with a bit of a twist of style. The Cuban guacamole was excellent with a few added ingredients that normally are not in this dish. The Churrasco ala Cubana was very good as was the white sweet and regular potatoes in a mash. Vaca Frita... More

Drinks at happy hour in the bar area were reasonably priced and service was very attentive. GREAT ATMOSPHERE - BUT NOT VERY GOOD CUBAN FOOD Do not be taken by the 15 TASTES OF CUBA, as for $39.95 you can do much better ordering individual appetizers: the Shrimp Ceviche that was excellent, the Mahi-Mahi and the Churrasco a la Cubana...

The mojito menu was why we went here and I was actually disappointed in them. They tasted like they were made from a mix and I stopped at one. However the arepa appetizer was the best arepa I have ever had!

A large group off us stopped in for dinner while in Orlando for a convention. Upon arriving we found a very nice atmosphere with most tables full. Seemed like a good sign. I started off with a Mojito. Cuba Libre makes an excellent Mojito. This however was where the excellence stopped. My next choice was Balck Bean soup. The serving... More

The tapas are fresh and unique and delicious! The shrimp and corn funditos and the fritters were to die for. The sangria was also good, but for a sweet special drink try the guava Caipirinha. Sit at the bar if you aren't there for a special occasion as there is a happy hour menu from 5p - 7p and some... More

I was at this restaurant in Atlantic City and was very disappointed. The one is Orlando was TERRIFIC. The atmosphere was extremely beautiful. They let us walk upstairs to see what that area looked like. It had several private rooms if you were having a special event. The service was over and above. I would highly recommend going here to...
