“So Good Went Twice in Two Nights”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 22, 2014 via mobile

The lechon and vaca frita are excellent entrees (I say that growing up eating such food). The platanos maduros are perfectly sweet - caribbean style, not quasi-ripe central american style. The tostones need work - to thick and therefore bready tasting. Cai Pirinhas are good (they'll even make doubles) tho a bit pricey. I'll definitely be back!

“Lots of food for the money”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2014 via mobile

We visited Cuba Libre because we won a $100 gift card and had never been before. Had a couple of delicious Mojitos to start and a rum punch after. My girlfriend ordered the 15 Tastes of Cuba menu for $40 and it was well worth it. I wish I had too! Lots of food and took a bunch home but the small 2 top table next to the dance club and elevator could have been better for ambience. Overall a good experience.

“I come here every time I go to Orlando”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2014

Took a group there last night, never disappointing. Great apps, chimmichurri skirt steak, good Spanish wines, cheerful service. What's not to like? I'm not a rum person, but they specialize in high end rums and the usual mojitos and related cocktails. It does get crowded, make a reservation.

“15 Taste-Full”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2014

Best way to try the food is the 15-tastes option, providing you with multiple appetizer, entre and desserts to taste! Great flavors and a full-belly to be had!

“Wonderful meal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2014 via mobile

Husband and I were in town for a meeting. Loud, but music engaging. Food was wonderful, service not hovering,but attentive. Manager very attentive to flow of the kitchen (we had no complaints, but he felt it could have been better). Indulge in a dessert!
