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.

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!

Myself and my partner dined at Cubana yesterday as a birthday treat (My birthday is today and his is tomorrow). We have never tried tapas before, but I was gifted a Living Social deal with £20 off our bill, so we tried it. The waitress who initially served us was helpful in explaining how tapas worked etc, and both myself... More

Beautiful food. Such a shame that certain staff do NOT wash their hands after using the toilet!!!!! I find this disgusting and completely unacceptable.

This is the first time we have visited Cubana in the new premises having been to the old one many times and were disappointed to find they now prefer to cater for "Large Parties" eg. stag or hen does, consequently all six of our dishes for TWO of us were put on the table at the same time which meant...

A fantastic place for something a bit different. The food was really good and the atmosphere downstairs in the bar is awesome! Loved the dancing and the cocktails! Been 3 times now and will definitely go back.

After eating here with friends my (now) daughter in law chose Cubana for her hen do, it was a great choice. Food lovely and flavoursome, service very good, excellent cocktails. Nice live music upstairs then downstairs to start the dancing, fab atmosphere. All in all great for friends having dinner or for a special occasion. Will be back very soon.

Generous tapas, more Spanish then than Cuban, which was what I was anticipating. Some were good, others disappointing. Decent white Rioja on the wine list, which was an improvement on the pre-dinner cocktails - my Cosmopolitan wasn't strong enough to defend itself. Live music from a couple who chose some great songs. She could sing and he knew his way... More

I blew in here on a snowy night, first night in the UK on business. Happy to find something a little unusual on the food front. I wasn't too hungry so just ordered 3 dishes and a beer. Nice atmosphere, music when I arrived wasn't too appropriate but got better with more of a Cuban feel as I ate. The... More
