Description: Cubana is both a Tapas restaurant and Cuban bar where live music is prominent throughout the week with DJ's and dancing at weekends. Having re-located to Leopold Square almost 3 years ago after 14 highly successful years on nearby Trippet Lane, Cubana is one of the most authentic and well respected venues in Sheffield. The decor is understated, with a theme of 'faded elegance showcasing some amazing original artwork throughout. The extensive menu combines classic Spanish tapas style dishes with South American flare and flavour. Cubana's very first head chef and many of the original culinary team have been in place since their very first day of opening back in November 2000 and this is 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

Reviewed September 19, 2012

I come to Cubana every month and the quality is always high. The service is great and the latino food is the best in Sheffield in my opinion. The flavours are brilliant and its nice to be able to choose a selection. Cocktails are fresh and tasty and prepared at the bar in front of you if you are in just for a drink.

“Must have come on an 'off night'”
Reviewed September 18, 2012

Well was quite suprised at this place after all the positive reviews, neither my partner nor me enjoyed our visit, the food was average the atmosphere was average and the same could be said for the service, infact the only thing that was'nt average was the bill which was high for the quality of the food we were served.

This place is either not my cup of tea at all or maybe it was just a bad night, we expected a busy and fun Saturday night atmosphere with cuban music but got a boring meal with what sounded like chart music playing in the background.

We were rushed from our table to stand at the bar so they could clear room for the dance floor and asked to pay the bill before the dancing started only to stand for 30 minutes waiting for the music to change and dancing to begin, anyway after hanging around waiting for some atmosphere we both agreed we wanted to leave.

All in all an average experience at best.

“Always a good experience”
Reviewed September 17, 2012

Have been to Cubana several times over the last few years. The tapas is consistently great and the staff very helpful and friendly. The atmosphere is good with a very Latin vibe!

They're also able to cope with my partner's gluten free diet without compromising on the menu too much (I think a few things are ruled out due to gluten but not much).

“Excellent, as always!”
Reviewed September 16, 2012

Visited Cubana's last weekend and was not disappointed. A great selection of dishes is available and their are vegetarian and vegan options (ask staff about the latter). The only problem that we encountered was that the food came out too fast. Delicious food (my group recommends the vegetable kebab, chicken and sweet potato dish, pork(?) casserole and goats cheese in ham) and great sangria and cocktails (the melon tree is excellent!). Overall, an excellent evening - friendly staff, good ambience and delicious food and drink - what more could you ask for?
