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 only attended the 'new' Cubana once since it opened in new larger venue. I had stopped eating at the old place because it was so cramped and several times my evening spoiled by gangs of screaming women. I have yet to try the new restaurant on the first floor. I found the ground floor bar to... read more

Lovely décor! Friendly staff. Good choice of tapas. Not exactly on the cheap side though! Tasty food, although only stays warm for a couple of minutes, so eat quickly!!!!!!!!

Lovely tapas food, although quite pricey for the size of the tapas dishes. However the lively atmosphere makes it an excellent place to spend time with friends. A unique restaurant and bar where occasional live performances take place. Excellent cocktails. I always order the Raspberry Colada and Melon tree.

I ate here with my friend for her birthday. I was very disappointed as the place looked great but the service and food were outrageous. The gentleman working was very rude and the food was inedible and over priced we chose the set menu option at 20 per head and it was all microwaved except the tortilla which was straight... More

My friends and I visited Cubanas on a Thursday evening. The atmosphere was great with live music playing beside us and plenty of other diners. Our drinks came quickly and our orders were delivered at a similar time despite ordering over 30 dishes combined. For tapas I was hesitant to order any less than 3, from prior experience the portions... More

I visited Cubana on a Saturday night with one friend and we really enjoyed ourselves. We started by having Tapas and cocktails in the restaurant upstairs and the food was lovely. Like traditional tapas the food arrives at your table as soon as its ready so this is something to be aware of as it may not be to everyones... More
