Business Profile

Cubana Sample our authentic Cuban surroundings, unique Cuban ambience & welcoming Latino vibe at one of Sheffield's best restaurants. Mix this together with our delicious Spanish/South American cuisine and the best in Latin music - all the right ingredients for a quality evening.

Biography Cubana, an independent establishment, opened on Trippet lane back in November 2000. They burst onto the Sheffield nightlife scene, offering a burst of joyous Havana sunshine on a sleepy back street a short shimmy away from the city centre.

Cubana was one of the trailblazers that helped breathe new life into Sheffield - multicultural restaurant, bar and music venue.

People felt like they'd discovered something great tucked away on this backstreet in the city centre Getting the look of the venue right was just as important as creating a wide variety of authentic tapas dishes, colourful cocktails and live music from around the world every night of the week - proof that music is the food of love.

Over the years, Cubana have been honoured to welcome many memorable guests. A visit from legendary Cuban band the Buena Vista Social Club in 2007 and 2008 was certainly a highlight for Cubana.

After 14 years building up a reputation as the most vibrant independent Cuban bar in Sheffield, it was time to say goodbye to Trippet Lane when they discovered the two-level venue, formerly Platillos in Leopold Square, had become available.

Now offering two floors for two different nights out, diners can enjoy the cosy upstairs area or a Latino party downstairs. Cubana turn over around 400 diners on a Saturday night, many of whom stay all night - dining at 7pm upstairs, staying and dancing through until 2am downstairs.

There's great flavoursome food, exotic cocktails, friendly customer service, live music and DJs to dance to - a lively venue with the full package, all under one roof.

Our Food Before finalizing any new additions to the menu, all the staff get together, sample the new offerings and collectively decide on which dishes to include and which dishes to take off which is often the hardest decision. Head Chef Erkland Xhaja, who has been with Cubana for over 16 years, now supervises a team of six that includes some of the most experienced and well respected chefs in the city in the Cubana kitchen that catering for hundreds of covers every week and is now one of the city's busiest independent bar/restaurants - major factor as to why Cubana is held in such high regard for top quality and consistently tasty food...
