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.

Visited early on a Thursday evening and we were enjoying a wonderful meal when a band who I guess were playing later in the evening arrived to set up ready for their performance next to our table. They were using the space next to our table to get their large instruments out of covers/cases which was very distraction. I looked... More

The bar always has a good atmosphere with great cocktails .Some nights there is salsa dancing and classes are available ( ?? on Saturday pm ) The up stairs tapas restaurant is quieter but still lively . Huge range of tapas !! Not somewhere for a quiet night out but fantastic if you want a great buzz .

FOOD: Hubby had Gambas (prawns in pastry) prawns cooked, pastry a bit soft, could have been crisper Boccerone (anchovies in vinegar) he enjoyed them Garlic bread - could have been crisper but good garlic flavour Paella (rice and sea food)...

We booked a tapas here on a voucher deal. The place was brisk but not crowded and has a pleasant ambiance. However there was a 4 piece band playing rather too loudly making discussion of the menu rather difficult. The tapas that we ordered were all excellent but a little pricey. Fortunately we had our voucher deal which reduced the... More

Came here for a friend's birthday , we ordered the set menu which I would recommend if it's your first visit. Plenty enough for 2 people and a great variety of dishes. Service was quick and the waitress very helpful , she didn't mind separating the bill between our party. Downstairs played great music and space to dance . Thoroughly... More

a group of 10 of us went for lunch, booked the 2 for £7.95 deal and had a side each. Was worried this wouldnt be enough but the portions far exceed anything I've had for tapas so far, no worries on that front. Everyones meal was generally of a very good quality, and the flavours were bang on. Only minor... More

Went here with my sister and parents who'd come up north to visit me, cubana seemed a bit different to anywhere else and looked good. However service was slow and the wrong food was bought to our table twice, no apology either time, totally disorganised, food was nice when it came but felt disappointed overall
