Foursquare Tips

  • Take a look at the new Rum list! Over 60 Rums!
  • Service SO SLOW I had to take my food home with me when it finally arrived. Over half hour just to get a soda I asked for. Maybe since our server is the mayor he was too busy with foursquare? IDK
  • Overpriced and very average food. The budget went on the Disneyland theming.
  • El Cubano is a must to try!
  • The mojitos here are great, try the grilled pineapple mojito
  • Ask John to make you a Passion Fruit Caipirinha. Superb!
  • Passionfruit mojito!!!
  • Yummy!!!! The service is great and so is the food!
  • The salsa dancing is very fun but make sure to bring comfortable shoes as they take out all chairs.
  • The Mango Mojito is out of this world.
  • When ordering the Sopa Levate Muerto, ask for a side of steamed white rice!
  • I cannot tell you how much we enjoyed the food and more importantly the service. I know they have only been open two days, but hopefully the dedicated customer service will not lessen as time goes on
  • A chain with branches in Atlantic City and Philadelphia, the Havana-lite Cuba Libre is a huge space -- perfect for bringing a group, unlike many bars near the Convention Center.
  • If you know authentic Cuban food you will not enjoy this place. However it's a great spot for salsa on fri & sat nights.
  • Grilled Pineapple Mojito
  • Go for the all you can eat and drink brunch for $35. Great deal with awesome food.
  • Mint, Ginger & Honey Caipirinha get 2 thumbs up!!
  • Went with wife and a friend. We had drinks and many small plates. There is much diversity in drinks and food. The decor is really cool, like a small Cuban village street. We enjoyed ourselves.
  • I have not had ONE mediocre dish, appetizer, or beverage at Cuba Libre yet! The Caprioskas are my favorite cocktail.
