Great place. Great cocktails, especially when the 2 for 1 offer is on! The tapas style dishes are lovely also. Can't fault it.

“Excellent night”
Reviewed February 16, 2013

We visited as a couple recently and could not have been more impressed. We loved the decor and the live music, the waitresses were attentive and the food was delicious, the portion could have been a little bigger, splitting 5 skewers etc was sometimes annoying, but other than that very happy, brilliant cocktails too.

“excellent food and music”
Reviewed February 9, 2013

If you are on a date or with a group this place ticks all the boxes. Our party was the usual crowd of ten that meet up once a month and we tried here for a change. The meal was excellent - my rib eye steak and roasted vegetables were yummy and everybody elses meals were also excellent. shortly after 7.30 the band started to ensemble and soon music was being played!
Just like being away on holiday and I was tempted (but sober!!!) to start latin dancing!!

well worth going and having a drink or a meal - a good party place thats classy as well

Seemed to have a good night of cocktails; ate at Las Iguanas and had great cocktails and then came here, live music, amazing Daiquiri's, really nice atmosphere. Not sure where to go for Valentines Day now!

“Great Place!”
Reviewed January 26, 2013

Long ago this place used to be a Buddha Bar and was one of my favourite bars in Sheffield, until one day they closed it down. At the time I was really disappointed that it had closed, then Revolucion de Cuba opened and let's just say, the disappointment didn't last long. This is now one of the places I visit regularly with friends.

As you'd guess from the name, it's a Cuban themed bar, specialising in rum. The décor and atmosphere are fantastic! You walk in and can't help but feel chilled out and relaxed instantly. Although a student I can't cope with the crowdedness and loudness of many bars, and nightclubs are a no go for me. This place (other than Friday and Saturday) is normally fairly quiet and laid back though, so perfect for me.

They have an amazing cocktail menu all based around rum and a number of flavoured rum shots (all taste fantastic and are very strong). Then there's the food, there is a good selection of tapas along with a variety of main meals and again, the food is delicious-the tapas is probably the best I've had anywhere!

In fairness, the place is quite expensive-around £6 for a cocktail, £5 for a tapas dish and £10 for a main meal, so being on a student budget it isn't a place I can easily afford most of the time, although I'm sure for some people those prices would be perfectly normal and reasonable. On Sundays though, the place becomes a lot more affordable as tapas and cocktails are 2 for 1, hence my friends and I go for a drink (or several!) on many a Sunday evening,

I celebrated both my 21st and 22nd birthdays here and having introduced the place to many friends and family members there's only ever been one person I've found who hasn't fallen in love with the place. I really can't recommend it enough!
