Description: 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.

we went on a Saturday night late on as it was packed and booked up in the restaurant until 9.30pm but they found us a table for 4, as it was a busy xmas weekend the menu was restricted to a set tapas menu but there was plenty of dishes included about 16 i think, the only criticism is that... More

We had our work Christmas Do here the other night. This is the 1st time I’ve been to the new Cubana (after several memorable visits to its previous incarnation on Trippets Lane), I was not disappointed. Fantastic venue, great atmosphere, friendly staff, talented musicians & more tasty food then our group could manage.

Although no stranger to the Tapas I was pleasantly surprised by both the variety and quality of the offerings on offer. Throughout the meal, our delightful serving staff supplied a steady stream of mouthwatering dishes for our delectation and a delicious repast was had by all. 9/10 would eat again A+++++++++++

We went for a hen party, it was perfect on a Saturday night, great tapas sharing plates, good veggie selection, very pleasant house white wine, and a buzzing vibe. We had some rather special cocktails in the bar, then upstairs to eat, then a live duo entertained us. Back downstairs and dancing to DJ music, excellent night out!

Cubana on Trippet Lane used to be a special place, completey unique with one of the best atmospheres, you really felt like you were in Havana. I can honestly say it was the best night out in Sheffield. Due to its (previous) location it attracted people who were going for the amazing food, intimate atmosphere and Latino music and dancing....

We visited this restaurant as a party of six to celebrate a fortieth birthday. The food, service and atmosphere were all good and the live music really made for a great evening. The only problem with Cabanas like all the bars and restaurants in Leapold Square is the price. It is simply to expensive and price does not match the... More

There was plenty to eat, portions were larger than other tapas restaurants I have been to. Meat balls came on a plate of 2 and... More

I had my 40th Birthday celebrations at Cubana and couldn't have wished for a better night. We had a table reserved for 20 people and although the restaurant was full the service was brilliant. Food arrived quickly and plenty of it. The staff were amazing throughout the night and Adrian was a fantastic host! I had friends that were visiting... More
