We are wearing masks, washing our hands frequently, sanitizing surfaces, and avoiding physical contact with one another and our guests. We very much look forward to the day when we can once again shake your hand to say hello. For now, we ask that you help us practice the kindness of social distancing so we can all take care of one another.

Greg Cox, acclaimed food critic for The News and Observer gave COPA 4 stars, saying "it's hard to go wrong here no matter what you eat" and praising the "outstanding selection of Cuban cocktails."
"[Roberto's] pork, locally and sustainably raised, is the best in town."

–Victoria Bouloubasis
"At Copa, Roberto Copa Matos translates the aromas and textures from his Cuban childhood into plates of plátanos rellenos, chicharrones or ropa vieja on cassava flatbreads. His wife, mixologist Elizabeth Turnbull, has dug deep to find authentic recipes and Old Havana back stories for the Daiquiri, Cuba Libre, Mary Pickford and other rum-soaked classics. The results are memorable..."

–Margaret Shakespeare
Our State Magazine
"In Durham, a city of dreamers and doers, Elizabeth Turnbull, Roberto Copa Matos... represent both categories."
