“Excellent because of the drinks-not the food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2013

The food is ok to good. Nothing memrobable on the menu and can get pricy but the drinks are a whole other story. They have an extensive rum list and make some of the best mojitos and caipirinha's. Go here for a drink before or after dinner but don't eat here- so many other nice restaurants around. They play latin music on weekends which adds to the nice drink you'll be sipping on.

“Love the deck”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2013

Dropped in for happy hour. Love the small deck altho it does get the sun early evening so look for shade. The sangria bore no resemblance to the real thing but was still delicious and with a happy hour deal, very good value. The snacks were so-so. Service was excellent and the music great! We'll be back.

“A great surprise for me this week!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2013

Went to the Cuba Libre with a group from work during a convention this week and was pleasantly surprised by the cuisine. The bread was outstanding and some of the appetizers were not too bad as well. I had the NY strip steak for my meal (I'm not too out there with food I cannot pronounce) so I ordered it due to recognition. The steak was great and surprised me on how good it tasted. The service wasn't bad, but the waiter wasn't too happy to seperate the ticket for each of us at the end of the meal. We had to wait forever for our food our this would get 4 stars from me.

“Cuban for the masses”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2013

Great atmosphere and food. The service and food were great and the dancing after 9:00 pm is lots of fun. Great for groups.

“If you want cuban food this is not the place”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2013 via mobile

Good service. Food wad far from traditional cuban food. Too spicy and hot. Strange mix of menus. Was it Mexican, Cuban, Tex or Southern. Pina Colada was more a coconut frape. Not recomended unless you want to try experimental food. Eat at your own risk. PD waitress didn't knew the difference between a chicken tight and breast
