Cuba Libre is proof that fun food and serious food need not be mutually exclusive. Here, a great atmosphere and stellar preparations coexist beautifully. Just don't over-do it with the cocktails, though that's a difficult rule to follow here...the mojitos are epic.
Free me – Free Me! I want to go to Cubra Libre. I just don't want to have to wait in line. Maybe I should say free me from the long line. Move me onto the delicious appetizers.
I went just last week on a romantic date and this place definitely helped set the mood. This was the perfect place to cuddle up to eat and then laugh and get a little wild.
AWESOME PLACE – THIS IS A PLACE THAT PLACE CLASS SPANISH MUSIC WITH THAT CARIBEAN TROPIC FEEL I LOVED IT, GREAT PLACE TO MEET CLASSY LATINAS
Great cuban food, cool restaurant – I recommend getting the "15 item tasting menu" if available. It's a great way to sample so many different things. My bf and I were visiting from out of town and came here on a Sunday. I've never had cuban food like this before. MMMMM. Really good flavors. That mango butter is to die for. haha.
The service is great, the restaurant decor is cool too.
Amazing food – Great drinks...great food & atmosphere and great lighting. Perfect for the special date. Although sometimes crowded on the weekend it is worht the short wait !
Great Memories – This place is amazing - I have been there several times and it just makes for a great night out. The mojitos are the best I have ever had and depending on who you are with, it could be very romantic or really crazy fun.
Cuba Libre in Phila below average – My Husband and I dine at some of the best resturants in the tri state area, Cuba Libre is not one of them. Appitizers were good, Entrees, awful in a word. We never mind a costly dinner, be cause you pay for what you get, not this time. Service was just ok, quality of the food was below average prices not so. If only the food could match the atmosphere. Definitly not a second visit!
Over priced food for the quality. Not a good environment for Romantic dates. – I went to this place with my girlfriend looking for a good cuban meal. The quality of the food was mediocre. The environment is decent but not honest. Looks like a Hollywood parody of Havana.
If you are looking for romantic night and good cuban food don't go to Cuba Libre. If you are looking for a bar and dancing just go there after 10 PM and don't dine.
Good food and drinks. Definately not group friendly! – I'm a regualar at Cuba Libre. They have excellent food and drinks. Naturally, I reccomended Cuba w/o hesitation for my friends birthday. Unfortuntely after our experience I was embarrassed for suggesting it. We had a party of 6 and were seated by the kitchen entrance and restrooms. There were constant smoking skillets passed above our heads and drunk patrons fell on us waiting for the restrooms. This definately affected our celebratory mood. If we had seen any other available seating I would have inquired to be moved.I had specified when making my reservation we were celebrating a birthday. I was suprised they hadn't sent over a complimentary dessert of some kind. While paying our bill someone finally come over with a "dessert" to my relief. But, to our dismay it was a plate with whipcream and a candle! Seriously? I informed management of my experience. She only advised me to specify seating next time because they really dont have much seating for 6 or more.There won't be a next time
