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.

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

The upstairs restaurant is pleasantly decorated, and has a warm, welcoming feel. The 'tapas' menu suggests you go for 5 dishes if you're ravenous - but the portions are so generous that five dished would usually do two people. A superb range of Spanish, Latin, Cuban influenced dishes, each for around £5 with a good quality vegetarian selection and very... More

Loving the 'new' venue for Cubanas. 12 of had a great time with a few beers, the tapas set menu and the thrown in live singer. Top venue with added dancing (optional) downstairs if you wanted. Top night out. Top marks. Can definitely recommend. We did get served the wrong set menu, probably because they were so busy due to... More

Return visit after a lunch time session some years ago. Mojitos the best I have tasted! Maunday Thursday, very busy, great atmosphere. Live music in the restaurant, fab tapas then live music in the bar. If we were local we would be here every week!!
