We visited Copacabana on a Saturday evening without a reservation and were greeted by a friendly hostess who informed us we would have a 20-25 minute wait. We decided to wait at the inside bar. We ordered beverages and no sooner than my husband's mojito was set in front of him, we were told our table was ready. This restaurant... More

If you're OK with the typical run-of-the-mill Cuban food, then you'll be fine eating here. Our table ordered the sample platter for our appetizer. Everything was deep fried and could've been purchased in the frozen food section of your store. For our entrées we decided on a pork dish, a steak dish and a chicken dish - Arroz con Pollo.... More

The restaurant has an indoor and outdoor sitting area. The outdoor area had live music the weekend night we were there. The volume was good, not so loud that it competed with dinner conversation but loud enough to enjoy. We shared a sampler platter and a main dish that included slow cooked pork, yellow rice, black beans, yucca, and plantains.... More

Wife and I stopped for dinner Wednesday night, and it was a great experience. Started with wine and margaritas on special, they were excellent. Started with chiccarones as appetizer, served warm with hot sauce, yum! We decided to share entree, red peppers stuffed with cheese and rope vieja. Cooked to perfection, meat was great in a light tomato sauce, served... More

The food was great, however the service was rather slow. If you are not in a hurry this is the best Cuban food in the area.

Love, love the mojitos here! The stuffed red peppers with ropa vieja are my go-to meal. Would rate a 5, but service can be slow during peak hours. Friendly staff, lovely patio for outdoor dining.

One of the best roast pork dishes here outside my mama's house. No lie. If you want good Cuban food, sans the hype, eat here. Order the traditional dishes and you won't be disappointed. If you prefer good down-home food over ambiance and frills, this is your place. They were busy on a Saturday night, when we were there. Recommend.

Went here with a group of 20 for my daughters birthday. The weather was great so we sat outside which was perfect! We only had 1 server for our whole table. She took a long time with everything which was okay because we were enjoying everyone's company but they definitely should have had atleast 2 servers for that amount of... More
