Great fun place to eat. Beer is expensive, but isn’t it everywhere these days :( There wasn’t a free table as we didn’t book so off we wandered else where…. a few minutes later the waiter followed us down the road and caught up with us saying they did manage to get a table for us and let us in. Proper good service.
Went again for the second time Saturday 21st Jan 2012. £13 per head wasn’t too bad, but was still hungry and ended up having a kebab later. lol
We had a really nice evening with colleagues here.
6 of us opted for the set meal which provided us with waaay enough food with plenty left over.
We arrived and got one of the last tables at 8pm and by the time we left an hour or so later if was heaving with an interesting mix of diners and drinkers.
Live band plus entertaining group of smashed but polite post funeral drinking buddies topped off a fun night.
Ate here on a business trip to Sheffield tonight.
We went for the standard set meal for 6, which came quickly and well cooked with a good variety of food to choose from. The meatballs were particularly good.
Nice atmosphere with jazz band playing, and vibrant feel about the place. Keep up the good work

One of my favourite places in Sheffield city centre, special atmosphere and friendly staff.
You won’t find any teenage binge drinkers there. In fact I have never noticed any trouble there inspite of the fact that it gets pretty crowded at the weekends.
Nice place especially if you like salsa dancing (after 10pm), but good to watch also.
Mojito and marguerita are excellent.
This authentic Cuban restaurant/bar/dance club is one of the hidden gems of Sheffield. Well priced and prepared tapas starts the typical evening, which will no doubt end in fabulous mohitos and great salsa sessions with the waitresses and chefs. Great for a night out with work.
Really good night out. It is a restaurant and a bar all in one. You can go here just to eat the tapas (which is really delicious) or you can come just to the bar area, which on a weekend gets really packed. Really good fun and you can get to do a little salsa as well!
Authentic tapas food with traditional spanish/south american music and rustic style suroundings. Theres a good variety of tapas dishes both meat dishes and veggie dishes. The food and drinks are reasonbly priced but look out for the Happy Hour too this is fantastic value.
There are regular Salsa nights where you can have dancing lessons from there Salsa techers and learn to dance the sexy salsa and merange.
Its a great fun place with a really relaxed and freindly atmosphere, a great venue for a meal with friends then salsa the night away.
Why is it that everyone loves
Cubana? It’s not the cheapest
bar or restaurant in town, it’s
not even the swankiest, but it
sure is the place where you feel
The staff are always fab, the
atmosphere is electric and the
food is out of the top drawer.
Tapas is the name of the game
here, with plenty to choose
from, but to save us the bother,
our waitress suggested we pick
from the set menu, a splendid
introduction to what the
restaurant is all about. There
are actually two set menus; a
regular (£17.50 per person) and a
deluxe (£21.50), but being picky
blighters, we went for a few from
each. They didn’t seem to mind.
We’d barely re-adjusted our
belts before the first dishes
arrived, including a sumptuous
black olive and mixed herb pate
on ciabatta and a selection of
scrumptious king prawns. We
delved into these feverishly as
the remaining tapas turned up,
including two of my faves; Patatas
Bravas and Cubana’s famous
meatballs. And there was some
good news on that front; my
other half was already filling up
and didn’t want her slice of the
meat action. Score.
The place was busy, and yet the
service was absolutely spot on.
The food came quickly, and we
were checked upon at just the
There were 10 dishes in total,
and to be frank, you’d have to
be a greedy little git to polish
them all off between two of
you, something we didn’t quite
manage. As we supped on our
wine, we pondered the menu’s
highlights . . . I went for those
meatballs, my missus for the
white wine mushrooms and
spinach topped with goats
cheese, but it’s never easy when
so much of it is so good.
We rounded the night off with
a shot of Sambuca, safe in the
knowledge that for all it’s years
as one of the best places – bar,
restaurant or live music venue– in
town, Cubana is not about to let
“Best restaurant in Sheffield” is usually said about Cubana and yeah, I’d go with that.
The tapas menu is fantastic, and you can tell the chef’s won awards. Simple dishes like meatballs or chicken and chorizo are cooked with great care and skill, making them delicious. There’s also the option having a reccommended selection which, considering what you get, is brilliant value for money.
Then there’s the music nights. Every evening excluding Wednesday has it’s own theme, including 'Mellow Mondays’ and 'Flamenco Thursdays’; all free by the way, and even fits in with Happy Hour!
Cubana is also a fine bar in its own right. There’s numerous latin beers to wash the calamari down and cocktail list is as inventive any bar’s. Try the 'Pisco sour’ with Peruvian brandy for something a little different.
A lively place to take in some tapas and much more interesting than the La Tascas of this world. Service is friendly and usually quick even when the restaurants full. Take advantage of the early evening offers, and make sure you book if you want to go here on for dinner at the weekend as it gets very busy.
I always have a good night out at Cubanas. The tapas is sooo tasty, the atmosphere is great and the waiters are lovely (they fit us in when it was packed in there because it was my birthday). The barman makes up some lovely cocktails as well. Trippet Lane is a cool, little known street, and Cubanas is a great place to start your exploration of this area.
