A cool atmosphere for sure. Went to dinner on a recent business trip. The apps were great (hummus, black bean dip and guac) as was the bread. Had the vacas fritas which I thought were a bit tough for something that had been braised and was also a bit salty. Overall it was good. Service top notch.

I went specifically for the Cuban sandwich and it was a disappointment. Instead of pickles they used relish which I wasn't a fan of. But my real complaint was that the cheese wasn't melted at all. Who wants a Cuban with unmelted cheese?? Nobody.

Fun ambiance, friendly service. Outdoor seating available. Drinks were somewhat slow to come out, and food quickly followed. My dinner companions all liked their meals a lot. I had the seafood paella which was good but not great--the lobster was overcooked and--although other elements of the dish were fine.

The service is very good but the food is average. The pineapple guacamole is really good but the plantain chips leave a lot to be desired. Some of the tapas are really good but the some of the mains are bland.

Had a business dinner and enjoyed the atmosphere, food and cocktails. It is a more casual setting so it was perfect for light conversation. Easy to walk to from hotels on Universal Drive.

We really enjoyed the decor and atmosphere, it was romantic, open & authentic. Our waiter was kind. The food was good. While most Americans seem to like ice in their drinks, we aren't as fond of it. All the drinks seemed packed with ice. We got a 1/2 pitcher of sangria that was packed with ice and it seemed to... More

We hit a jackpot on this place. After a long day, my colleagues and I were looking for great food where we can relax and enjoy the surroundings. Point Plaza (the area where the restaurant is located) is fun with a lot of choices. Cuba Libre has amazing Cuban/Latin food including latin cocktails with Pisco!! The lechon (something) dish was...

Came here with friends to try Cuban food. The place was exceptional nice, the staff was really attentive and friendly. The food was so delicious and tasty. If you park at the public parking plaza they will validate four ticket so you don't have to pay for parking. And if you choose to stay to dance a little bit you... More

This was my second visit to Cuba Libre and it is a fantastic location for a large group business dinner. We were seated on the second floor and several other large groups were there as well. Our waiter was very friendly but he did get some of the drink and food orders mixed up and missed a few requested refills.... More
