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.

Our first to Cubana's new location was disappointing, we are regular visitors to the restaurant and can only hope we have a better experience next time we go. Our best guess is that the staff are still getting to grips with the increase in diners. We visited on a busy Saturday night and we're seated in good time on a... More

We were recently over in Sheffield and looking for somewhere special to eat as it was mine and my husbands birthdays that week. We were not disappointed this bar/restaurant is fabulous The upstairs houses the restaurant while the downstairs is the bar area which also acts as the dance floor for the lively Latino dancing. Food was excellent with all... More

I visited Cubana a number of times in the trippet lane restaurant. The food was always excellent but the venue too small. Now they have it all, great food, great service and a bigger venue. You can still have intimate but without feeling crowded, those who are not sure wait until Christmas, no more rushing if you go for the... More

Rushed in and out, the food was some of the blandest I've ever had. One of the worst meals i dare say I've had. The sirloin steak was shocking had better frying steak. Meatballs bland, no seasoning or taste what so ever. Would not go again or recommend to anyone.

This was my first visit to the new Cubana in it's trendy new location, although I've eaten at the old Trippet Lane restaurant fairly regularly. The first thing that strikes you is how cavernous and empty the ground floor is (it was a weekday evening though). The upstairs restaurant was only half full, leading to a lack of the intimate...

We visited this trendy bar during our recent visit to Sheffield, found it a bit expensive , 2 pints of lager & 1 small coffee, cost £11. But must say the drink was very good being Cruzcampo. !

We had dinner at Cubana on our second night in Sheffield. It is at a new location in Leopold Square, and the main dining is upstairs. The décor is very much in the Havana bar style, and has very well painted murals and a bold bar feel. The service was polite, interested, and professional. We ate from the tapas menu... More

Great feel. Lovely to see people up and dancing... Both experienced and novices. Music slightly too loud for those who wish to watch and talk... But a good feel!!!
