Wife and I were out for a little drive and decided to stop at Copacabana for a "cuban" lunch. Greeted immediately and seated right away. Wife had a cocktail and I enjoyed a nice fresh Presidente draft beer. Fairly extensive menu for lunch and we had the "Picadillo" and the "Pescado" lunch items. For Cuban food it was neither exceptional nor bad. Just average, which based upon a lot of todays places is probably good. Service was very good as the 2 waiters in the restaurant cover for each other and we were never left hanging. So based on all of that would we go there again..... yes........ and the next time to try the dinners.... looked interesting.

Atmosphere is average; food is good. Service was lacking during our visit. We first had the bartender as our waiter, then the owner... and by the time we were looking for the check, we had to get up and find someone to take our money. That's pretty frustrating. But, the place was very popular and it's obvious that the owner knows many of his patrons.

We visited Mt. Dora last year with my cousins. While there, we stumbled onto Copacabana, a place they had never been to. At that time, we just wanted a snack and the the restaurant was just about to close to prepare for diner service - but we all got some café con leche and buttered pan cubano. Just what we needed, the coffee was delicious and the bread just right for dunking. And met my Cuban husband's approval! We knew we'd be back, and during the past year my cousins (who live near Mt. Dora) have been back several times.
So on our visit to FL this year - back to Mt. Dora & Copa. A wonderful lunch was had by all, and the Cuban Mojito was perfect. I think between us we had Masitas de Puerco, tamales with ropa vieja, arroz con pollo, and something else. All excellent, some of the best Cuban food we've had at a restaurant.

We went to this restaurant after our wine tasting around Mt Dora and were not disappointed. All of their food is authentic Cuban food way better than the famous Columbia restaurant. The owner took very good care of us and we left very content. I had the palomilla steak with yellow rice and pinto beans and my husband had the roasted pork with the white rice and black beans...yum!!!Keep up the good food!!!
