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. Many of the original culinary team of experienced chefs 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

Cubana's move from it's 'secret' Trippet Lane location to the more 'mainstream' Leopold Square was always going to be a balancing act but the end result is truly stunning. They've retained the intimacy and given diners the upstairs for themselves. I visited last Thursday night. The majority of the old favourites remain on the menu but there are also plenty of additions. The risotto is to die for and the new tuna dish is well worth a try. In short it was a very enjoyable experience. The service was efficient and friendly the atmosphere was as good as it gets in Sheffield and live music topped off a great visit.

Is now located at the Leopold Square. If you are in a mood to experience the Latin American atmosphere in Sheffield, this is the place to be. I have not had food here but spent Saturday evenings here for good Latin American music and dance and the music is on my mind until the next day. I think the music and ambiance here does not let you have a hangover the next day. Only yesterday they had organised a open air salsa night in the Leopold Square just in front of the restaurant and it was just the best thing I have been to in months.

Came her on the off chance they had a table, they were fully booked, but still managed to sort a table out with zero fuss! We had an excellent dinning experience, the staff and service were fast and friendly 10/10! The food was as always fantastic 10/10. The atmosphere was brilliant and even though they were clearly busy and they squeezed us in we did not once feel rushed!

Top marks for a top restaurant !

Have to agree with Keith P. Wanted to visit Cubana for a long time but could never get into Trippet Lane venue (always a last minute booking with us!). Booked a table for 8.15 for three people, arrived early so had a drink in the bar downstairs - quiet but could see it would be good for later. Went upstairs at 8.15 - table not ready so had another drink at the bar. Didn't have to wait long for our table and ordered food pretty much straight away. Over an hour later we still hadn't received any food. This is not what I understand Tapas to be - it's supposed to be fast food! The food when it did arrive was nice - OK but not fantastic - but it all came at once - again not what I expected for tapas but apparently that's what they do at Cubana. Management apologised and gave us drinks on the house but the only explanation for the delay was that an order had gone through twice - so no apocalyptic disaster then that could account for such a long wait for food. On the positive side - staff friendly and the atmosphere in the bar downstairs later on with the dancing is great. My advice would be to eat elsewhere and come here for a drink and a dance afterwards.
