We travel to Mt. Dora every year for a little getaway. If we like a place, we'll go there again. Such was the case with Copacabana. My wife had the Pechuga a La Plancha, quite good and more than enough. The Pernil was probably just as large, but I was hungry so it disappeared quickly. The only disappointment was the... More

We went to Mount Dora to check out the Christmas decorations. While there we decided to follow our noses and grab a bite to eat. The area had some very nice places but we weren't into spending $25-35 per plate. We checked out trip Advisors ratings and saw this place. When we were ready to eat we walked over to... More

The portions were HUGE! We had the appetizer sampler and should have stopped there. We shared that and a Cuban sandwich and ate about half of each. The food was very good and the pineapple mojito - muy Bueno!

The food was excellent along with the wait staff. They were really busy so it did take awhile to get our food but it was worth the wait. This is my second time dining here and it was great both times.

We stumbled upon this place on the Friday afternoon we arrived in Mt. Dora and being from Tampa were curious about their Cuban food. Too early for dinner so we ordered the appetizer sampler and a carafe of homemade sangria. OMG is all I can say. The empanadas and tamale were more than enough to satisfy and soooo delicious but...

We stopped for lunch when on a recent visit to Mt. Dora. We ate outside on the patio and enjoyed people watching.

I've eaten here before and the food was okay. Went again today (Black Friday), and there was no hostess. We stood at the hostess station for over 10 minutes before anyone acknowledged us. The server told us that someone would be with us soon. A few minutes, another server came by. We asked to sit outside. There was one table... More

We enjoyed a late lunch here recently. We decided to share appetizers and margaritas for lunch. The portions were very large and we had more than enough food to go with our excellent margaritats. Service was super too!
