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.

Interesting, well worth a try

Good tapas with lots of vegetarian options. A busy but nice atmosphere on a Friday night. Good service, there were a couple of small mistakes but these were quickly rectified. Glad we tried it, and would go back.

Went early on a couple of Saturday's ago - as part of a group of four. Our table was packed with tapas and every single one was amazing - we were all pleasantly stuffed. Would eat here again. Last week I visited the downstairs bar on a night out - very lively, great music and top notch drinks. Definitely worth... More

Where is the Cuba in the food? All tapas that we got were totally underseasoned. They were just a cold 4 out of 10. Cold meatballs, patata bravas were just patatas with no bravas, the veg were not seasoned at all and there was no chorizo in the chicken. Compared to Cielo Blanco it is definitely a 4 out of...

Quick visit here a few nights ago to meet someone. Place was packed outside and in with the upstairs also very busy. Staff buzzing around looking after a lot of seemingly happy customers with lots of smiles on both sides. We had cocktails upstairs at the bar and were looked after by Rocio (from Madrid) and her colleagues. First class... More

I can't find fault with this restaurant. The service was fast and friendly, the atmosphere was great (both downstairs in the bar and up in the restaurant). We both ordered a set menu because we weren't sure what to get. Boy, we weren't disappointed. The portions were well sized and the selection of food was brilliant. Everything was delicious and...

We had lunch there on Saturday. We ordered the tapas for four every dish was a disappointment. Bread was stale. The lamb dish looked disgusting and was inedible meatballs were dry the "paella" had clearly been scraped from a pan and was horrible. The only reason I didn't complain at the time was because we were with friends we hadn't... More

I have been here a few times since the move from Trippet Lane and have not been disappointed by the food upstairs and the bar and dance area downstairs. I went here on Tuesday 14th July with friends to celebrate my birthday. We had the Tapas set menu. The portions were large and a great variety of tasty food. The... More

Have been here many times and each time the food has been top drawer, plus I am spoilt for choice with the range of tapas on offer. However I always plump for two red meat dishes and two fish/chicken dishes. I hate to be picky, but where it loses marks is that the drinks are fairly pricey and the rabbit... More
