“Pleasantly Surprised By The Food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2009

We have just visited Cuba Libre for our first time for a meal and it was surprisingly delicious! Ones first thought about a place called Cuba Libre is that they must have a good rum and coke. Well, not only have they mastered rum drinks, their food is awesome. We actually scored a great coupon on restaurant.com which encouraged us to sit down for a meal and we are happy we did. We did a little sampling and our favorite was The Portobello and Crab Entree (over garlic mashed potatoes topped with a creamy crab and manchego cheese) was a-mazing! We also had the mojito martini which is not something I would usually order. It was served in a large martini glass and was the perfect mojito - nicely chilled and balanced. The decor is sophisticated and atmosphere relaxing, especially on a slower weekday like Tuesday. Even though it was slow, the staff was attentive and interested in our dining experience being a good one. I highly recommend Cuba Libre. The price below is for an app and two of the most expensive entrees. They also have great happy hour prices.

Good bar if you like Rum. They claim to have the best Rum selection in town. I've never tried their food but their Mojito's are good.

“Great Cuban Sandwich, and Awesome Mojito's”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2009

We started off with the Calamari and it was excelent, for dinner we had the Cuban Sandwich and the Rosemary Grilled Chicken. Both were great. They carry over 100 different rums, I had a Bacardi 8 mojito and my wife had one made with a rum from Guatamala called Zaya. The mojitos are a must.
