What others are saying

Wine and Spirits Magazine
"Roberto Copa Matos translates the aromas and textures from his Cuban childhood into plates of plátanos rellenos, chicharrones, or ropa vieja with cassava flatbreads. His Wife, mixologist Elizabeth Turnbull, has dug deep to find authentic recipes and Old Havana back stories for... rum-soaked classics. The results are memorable."

–Margaret Shakespeare, Wine and Spirits
"[Roberto's] pork, locally and sustainably raised, is the best in town."

–Victoria Bouloubasis, INDY Week
The News and Observer
"Copa opens in Durham doing Cuban food like you've never seen... It isn't often that a truly unique concept comes around, but Copa looks to be that. Often new restaurants aim to be either modern or authentic, but Copa aims at historic, cooking a nearly lost Cuban cuisine..."

–Drew Jackson, The News and Observer
Our State Magazine
"In Durham, a city of dreamers and doers, Elizabeth Turnbull, Roberto Copa Matos... represent both categories."
