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.

One of the best meals I have personally ever had. great choice available and very good portions. The atmosphere of the place was very authentic and most importantly the food was delicious. Would definitely recommend this place.

The food was okay, not outstanding. Best was the whisky sour. What let it down was the rude staff. Especially the door man. I'm not even going to repeat what he said to me. The waitresses and bar staff were pretty lazy and impersonal as well.

We came here on request from the birthday boy. My husband wasn't particularly looking forward to it as usually with tapas apparently you go home hungry. He came away eating his words. We each ordered from the set menu and as I really do not like sea food I took a vegetarian option that included fish and changed the fish... More

We ordered a selection of dishes and as the title suggests, they were all okay. The 'succulent sirloin steak however was not good. For £6 I had a piece of steak tough as leather without any sauce or flavour. Staff were very friendly though and I would probably go again.

We were a party of size and our drinks and food orders were taken fairly soon after we arrived. We then had to wait a while for our drinks and and a whole lot longer for the food. Two of us shared a tapas platter. Most of the dishes tasted OK and the quantity was good for £20pp, so I... More

We're shopping in Sheffield and thought we'd pop in to the new Cubana in Leopoldo Square. Went upstairs. It's great to see how they've kept the same style of worn Cuban decor in such a large place. Service was excellent and friendly. Drinks came quickly. It was very quiet but then it was lunchtime. We ordered a variety of tapas... More

Always loved this place but didn't go that often as always felt restricted ( small space). This place is buzzing with atmosphere, great food. Only one small moan, service a little disorganised. Will definitely re-visit

My OH and I spent a lovely warm Sunday afternoon listening to cool live jazz recently at Cubana in Leopold Square. There was a great atmosphere, with a variety of ages taking in the last rays of summer and there even people were dancing. We chose to eat at Cubana and 4 tapa between us, which was most enjoyable..
