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.

Fun evening

Best tapas I have tasted outside of Spain. All of our party enjoyed each dish and every portion was large, definitely good value for price paid. We had the set menu which was much easier when in a larger party and the dishes come with right portion size for your party no one goes without a prawn... read more

Ate here with five friends on a Friday night. Food was great with a good choice on the menu. Good value for money. Would recommend Cubana. Service was excellent. Only downside was it was that dark in the restaurant we could hardly read the menu and the music was a little loud. We had to shout across the table to... More

I dined here alone during a business trip. I chose 3 tapas and couldn't finish them all - two would have been plenty. The goat's cheese risotto was sublime and the sweet potatoes with red peppers a real delight. Finished off with a spiced orange daquiri, serenaded with a live acoustic guitar from Paolo - what a great time- and... More

Me and my husband visited her last week on a Sunday lunch time after much deliberation as to where to eat. We sat outside as the first customers of the day and were greeted by a lovely waitress who informed us of the deals that were on. We ordered the set meal which was 10 different dishes which had a...

Cubana is a fun lively place to go in Sheffield. The tapas are good and tasty and quite authentic (I have lived in Spain and sampled some of the best!). Just be careful not to get carried away when ordering, you could end up with a fairly hefty bill! You can enjoy music and dancing afterwards too. I think though,... More

Good place to visit for a authentic experience in the heart of the city. Not the biggest place but worth a visit

Went with friends. Tapas are superb. Excellent value, quality, variety & quantity. Superb live music. Great for a dance too. Service was friendly, fast & efficient. Am arranging a big Do with a large group of girls soon. So I'll review again & see how they handle groups.

Went for drinks here in the evening. Loved the live music and dancing, and such a great feel about the place, relaxed and enjoyable. Loved it that much I've recommended it for a works doo soon.

Been here a few times now and the tapas is excellent - even for me as a veggie (I find Spanish tapas yummy but limited in variety). The chocolate spoon cake is amazing and they let us get it to take away once - even decorated with fruit and sauce like you'd have it in the restaurant. The drinks are... More
