This place is located just outside the city center and it offers great spanish tapas. There is a wide choice of dishes with seafood, meat and vegetarian options to keep every foodie happy. Lovely atmosphere, good service and very generous portions of food! Highly recommended!

I've been here a couple of times and always have good service. The tapas style food is authentic and yummy, good value, and the staff are always lovely. The interior is Cuban-style and cosy. I will definitely be going again!

Brilliant service. Food is unbelievable. Good price for what you get and the portions are massive (definitely get some sides and some starters too!) - recommend the bruschetta, the prawns and the tortilla! Staff are great and the atmosphere is fantastic. Could not recommend anymore!

This is the second time we have eaten here. The food is fabulous. We have never been to Cuba but in the restaurant you can imagine being there, the decor, smells, music and atmosphere create the image. The staff are great. The choice of food is great. The drinks are great. It is all great! Go! Enjoy!

My favourite place to visit on a Saturday night, buzzing atmosphere, delicious food (especially the Caribbean lamb) and the drinks are amazing- try the frozen strawberry daiquiri, they are not stingy on the rum! I always bring family visiting from outside of leeds

Food was lovely and reasonably priced. We were told it could be up to 45 minutes for a table but were seated within 15. Staff were polite and welcoming and the food arrived quickly. Only complaint was that it was far too warm in the restaurant on a hot evening but the charming decor and pleasant atmosphere compensated for that!
