¡BIENVENIDOS A CUBA LIBRE! Dedicated to celebrating Cuban heritage and the continued exploration of Cuban flavors, art, music, and traditions.
Cuba Libre’s mission is to provide an “escape” to Havana through exciting food, beverage and entertainment experiences that celebrate the Cuban people and culture. Two-time James Beard award-winning Chef-Partner Guillermo Pernot’s menus feature tantalizing tastes that reflect Cuba’s culinary traditions, as well as the emerging modern cuisine that he is experiencing during his continuing travels to Cuba. The open-air setting, tropical ambiance, vintage décor, upbeat Latin music, and Chef-Partner Guillermo Pernot's delectable menu of today's Cuban cuisine, make all of our restaurants a must-see, must-experience dining destination.
Cuba Libre Restaurant & Rum Bar launched in Philadelphia in 2000, followed by Atlantic City, NJ, in 2004, Orlando in 2008, Washington, D.C. in 2010, and Fort Lauderdale, FL, in 2021, giving guests a passport to Cuba's intriguing flavors and culture. The restaurant’s name, which translates to “a free Cuba,” signifies hope for the future of the treasured island nation. Principals Barry Gutin and Larry Cohen bring a unique combination of hospitality and expertise to each of their projects and have been partners in the hospitality business since 1995.
