“Why didn't we eat here before???”
Reviewed October 5, 2013

This was the first time we've visited Viva Cuba but it definitely wont be the last! We were the first people to arrive tonight and were made to feel welcome and chose our own table. It wasn't long before other diners arrived but it was such a great atmosphere and just felt so warm and inviting. The service was efficient yet unobtrusive and as a vegetarian, I was impressed by the number of choices I had on the menu. The food arrived quickly and it was the best tapas we have ever had in Leeds. We will definitely be returning to this restaurant very soon! Thanks for a great experience!

“Nice place, good admosphere”
Reviewed September 29, 2013 via mobile

It's a nice relaxed restaurant with nice food and reasonable prices. Portions are good and ordering 5 tapas between two of us left us both stuffed and happy. Food is nice although not as nice as at Ambiente Tapas, some tapas could have done with a little less salt and more flavours but in general we quite enjoyed it and cannot fault the place or food much.

“Relaxed and simple”
Reviewed September 27, 2013 via mobile

Viva Cuba is great for an after work or last minute meal. Dined there on a Wednesday evening and it was fairly full, which made for a good atmosphere, but I can see where the 'long wait' stories may come from.
Tapas menu and you get decent sized portions. I would advise about 5 per couple. Couldn't fault value for money. We ordered six dishes (probably one too many!), and they were all tomato based (maybe a mistake on our part) but be careful because every dish seemed to blend into one. Having said that all was tasty.
Drinks reasonable.
Relaxed easy going atmosphere.
It's a good place that has its place, and that's where I stated at the top!

“Popular and worth the wait”
Reviewed September 22, 2013

The food at this tapas restaurant was very nice. It is popular with 30-50 year olds, so be prepared to wait. The food is delivered quickly, although it can take a little while to get your severs attention. The food was flavorable and nicely proportioned. I have four dished for just me, and I should have only ordered tow. The staffed worked nicely together - covering for each other and willing to assist any customer. If you like tapas, and Cuban tapas to boot, worth the wait and the experience.
