My wife and I and our son ate here on Monday and it was Superb. My wife and I started with house margaritas, on special, and they were perfect with a slightly unusual but not overpowering difference in taste; maybe a secret recipe. The buttered Cuban bread was warm and the green Chimichurri spiced it up just the right amount! We all three had Churrasco style steaks, medium and they did NOT fail to impress; they were great. In addition, the staff was very accommodating to some gluten and dairy allergies!! Thank You Wendy!!

If you love El Siboney in Key West then the Copacabana will make you feel right at home with an even nicer dining area!!

Cheers

We had lunch here and were very pleased with the selection, the food, and the service. Great menu, with many choices, all of which seemed to be authentic Cuban style cooking. The fried pork chunks were tasty and gave a generous portion.

We visited Copacabana Cuban Cafe on a Saturday afternoon for lunch. The restaurant was crowded, but not overly so. The staff who greeted us were very cordial and friendly. We were seated quickly and our drink orders were taken immediately. When she brought our drinks, she also brought some bread with a somewhat spicy chipotle sauce and some chimichurri sauce. The chipotle was good, but the chimirhurri on the bread was amazing! The chimichurri was also very good on the flank steak! Our waitress was very helpful with the menu, giving suggestions for different types of food. In the end, we decided to share the house special, Copacabana. There was so much food, I am glad we shared. The Copacabana comes with marinated flank steak, 6 shrimp on a skewer and tender chicken breast served with yellow or white rice (I love yellow rice) black beans and plantains or a salad. It was all wonderful The meat was tender and tasty, the rice was very good, and the plantains were excellent. We have not been to downtown Mt. Dora in a long time. The Copacabana Cuban Cafe was an excellent choice. Also, compared to many of the other restaurants in the area, the prices were much more affordable. We'll be back again!
