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.

From the minute we walked... More

Had an absolutely fabulous night at a recent party, the food is amazing, I have only just discovered Tapas, and this was without a doubt the best I have ever had, the staff were great and the atmosphere excellent. I can't recommend it highly enough.

Wide selection of tapas dishes available . Tried several dishes all lovely. The paella is beautiful and is in our selection every time. If you have room after your tapas dishes try the cheesecake it is the best cheesecake ever. Friendly welcoming restaurant with helpful staff and a great atmosphere.

Went for the pre-Theatre Tapas set meal at a discounted rate of £14.50 per head. Wow what wonderful dishes and such a variety of flavours. The dishes just kept on coming so don't worry you will not go hungry on this Tapas menu. The staff were most attentive and pleasant. We usual eat in "non chain restaurants" and it is... More

I have always had great nights at Cubanas in the old Trippet Lane venue and the current one on Leopold square. If you want to eat, drink or both you won't be disappointed! The food is authentic and delicious and the service is stylish and friendly. Really can't recommend this place enough!
