Cubana is both Tapas Restaurant and Cuban bar and live music is prominent throughout the week with Djs and dancing at weekends. Cubana recently re-located to Leopold Square after 14 very successful years on nearby Trippet Lane and is one of the the most authentic and well respected venues in Sheffield. The decor is understated,with a theme of 'faded elegance amazing original artwork throughout. The extensive menu combines classic Spanish tapas style dishes with South American flare and flavour. Chilean head chef Fabian Cruz has been in charge of kitchen affairs since their very first day of opening in 2000 and a major factor as to why Cubana has such a great reputation for top quality and consistently tasty food. A lively atmosphere is helped by great music and energetic presence of Sheffield 's Latin community.

Went for a meal at Cubana this past weekend, the restaurant was very busy as there was a special event in the square for the Bank Holiday. The staff was great and we managed to get a table after a short wait, despite not have a reservation. My partner and I ordered the tapas sampler meal for 20 pounds each.... More

The restaurant offers Salsa lessons on Saturday lunchtime, which were great fun, and taught by a lovely lady. We then went upstairs for Tapas... great quality food, and price was brill as they offer a deal if you eat before 6pm. Would visit again.

Nice outdoor seating with heaters Very quick service from friendly bar men However, staff sitting outside drinking listening to music at full volume on their iPhones, very annoying and affected the atmosphere so massively we chose to leave. Shame.

We called in on a Saturday afternoon and had the 2 Tapas for £7.95 deal. This a great deal because unlike other early deals which have a special reduced menu, you can choose any dish from the regular menu. We had four tapas and some bread and the quality and quantity of food we had were both more than satisfactory.... More

Fantastic tapas, mmmm mojito 's , live band and friendly service. Good value and the squid was cooked to perfection. Can't wait to return. If this restaurant was in the Notts area , it would be a regular haunt.

This place was so much better when it was on Trippet Lane, it seems to have left a lot of its atmosphere behind and several lightbulbs - I know it is going for a theme but is it so dark at the back even in the day. One really annoying thing about this place is the tables downstairs are not... More
