honestly it was our first time in free Cuba, we ordered seafood and it was so old in fact that some things were burned (squid) sound in the Latino disco was horrible and finally decided to go elsewhere ... I wanted to have a detail with my friend for our arrival in Spain and has been a disaster ...

The food was Amazing!! Great atmosphere, fun, & lively. Only downside was how weak the Mojitos were...very dissappointed for a $10 drink...tasted like a virgin/ non-alcoholic drink. I feel as though a cuban drink at a cuban restaurant should be spot on.

I have eaten at the one in Atlantic City, it was a good experience there. However at this location we asked to be moved to a smaller table because they sat us at a huge table and we had 2 small children with us this time. So it was not appropriate for a high chair to be at this kind of table/booth area. I had to ask for the high chair 2 times, I eventually went to the manger. This is after asking the hostess and a server. The we sat for a while waiting for a server. Had to get our own menus that were placed at the old table. Then our server shows up, he was not aware we were seated in his section. Service was quick after that, food was excellent. Its not somewhere you want to bring kids too even if your in Orlando. The place was empty for a Tuesday night.

If you are looking for a fun place with excellent dining then Cuba Libre is a great option. Food was excellent I recommend the tuna and the appetizers. On the weekend after 1030 it becomes a night club. Service was on point too.

Discover this restaurant last year via yelp and the Disney magical dining month held annually in Orlando. If you're looking for some seriously authentic Cuban food and some excellent service with a location, albeit in a well-known tourist area, its actually quite convenient. The Decour and Ambience are pretty authentic and from what I've heard they have some really good live music later in the evening: We only come with children so haven't had a chance to enjoy that yet, but hope to soon. This is one of my favorite restaurants in Orlando overall and always a go to When friends are out of town and want something different then your general tourist fair.

Jensine was our server and she was spectacular! She knew the menu down to every appetizer and entree, plus her fun disposition and attention to detail made it an excellent dining experience. The artistry and decor of the restaurant and its three clubs within are unforgettable. There were so many great choices that I went with three tapas selections. My favorites were the spinach and cheese balls, rice and black beans and the mango mojitos (what a smooth blend)!

Amazing restaurant with a great location ... in the middle of International Drive. Great ambiance, staff, music, beverages, and food! Be sure to make reservations in advance and you will be so glad you did; as, they always have a large crowd.
We ordered a "Sample" plate / per person and it had four appetizers, three entrees, and a choice of two desserts. Beautiful presentation, delicious food, and a great way to try a wide variety of Cuba Libre's food choices (but in smaller portions).
Wanted to go back the next night, too!

We live here and have heard a lot about Cuba Libre so when looking for a place to celebrate our anniversary we thought we would try it. Our server was top notch, we'll versed in the food and drink menus. He made good recommendations, with a little up selling but wasn't pushy.
Food was excellent. Presentation was nice. Overall a nice experience.
They validate parking, and it's a nice walk to the theater.

It was odd that the shrimp ceviche had cocktail sauce mixed in it. We ordered the ceviche combo and it only came with 3 saltines and one plantain strip. The saltines were not a good choice. We requested more plantain strips and received a complementary large basket. Entrees and empanadas were excellent and service was professional.
Food was awesome along with the service. Many choices on the menu that can be a little overwhelming. Fortunately the restaurant offers a menu item called the "taste of Havana" that is a 15 course meal. It allows you to sample all types of Cuban food. Service was top notch as they keep drinks full and the table free of clutter on a dish was finished. My only complaint is that it was a little pricey. However, you get what you pay for. Will be back again.

Wait staff was outstanding, several options for adults and kids alike. Bar scene looked fun, beautiful scenery in the restaurant recreating a lovely outdoor 50's Havana theme. Food was delicious and there was plenty of it. Would go again any time I stay in the I Drive/ Convention center area

Delicious meal! My friend loves this place in philly so she suggested we try it in Orlando. We were both there on a business trip. Loved the fun outdoor atmosphere. Waiter was super attentive. Food was amazing. I had an incredible chop salad as appetitizer and also the chicken. Flavora popped. Can't wait to go back again next time I'm in town.

We made reservations and requested to participated in happy hour. Upon arrival we were seated in the regular seating. I asked if we could participate in happy hour specials and we were told no. We were seated so close to other table that the waiter could hardly get through. The drink was weak and the skirt steak was over cooked. The amount of food and the cost was not a good value at all. We were there to celebrate our 11th anniversary away from our children so we were a bit disappointed in the experience.
The food was exquisite, the place look phenomenal.
The waiter was very nice and had great recommendations we loved the drinks he brought us based on what we said we likes. The place looked amazing, exactly what we were looking for, something out of the ordinary that made our experience even better. The food to die for. All four of us had different things and all 4 plates were a delight to try. I really liked the place I definitely recommend it

Mojitos. Enough said. That's why you come here. You can get food anywhere, though the pulled pork was delicious; however, when there are literally dozens of handmade mojito recipes to pick from, no reason to go anywhere else. Pull up a chair and have a drink or ten.
Mediocre and Touristy
Drinks were good and menu had potential, but the execution wasn't good. Food had clearly been frozen (based on the chewiness of the crab), my buddy got the "runs", and i didn't finish one thing that came out. I'd like to see a simpler/fresher menu of real cuban food. Disappointed as i love the CL in Philly.
