We say…

On the centrally located Kirkstall Road, Viva Cuba is a lively and exciting Cuban restaurant only a short distance from the very centre of the city. Influenced by the owners’ backpacking trips around Cuba and the rest of the world, the restaurant is a blend of Australian, Yorkshire and Cuban styles – a truly exciting and eclectic place to be.

The restaurant is warm, colourful and friendly, adorned with artefacts, decorations and paintings all collected from trips to Cuba. Second hand furniture taken from  all over the place give the restaurant a vintage, unique feel, including the chairs bought from the closure of a local Methodist Church. Greenery, flags and candlelit tables give extra character to the personality-filled dining area, already full of life and Cuban style. An extension and indoor balcony area has been added, and now the spacious restaurant can host up to 100 customers. It’s the perfect place to visit for lunch or dinner, only having to book if you are in a party of 10 or more. It’s also a great venue for event hire and celebrations, offering a number of dining packages and paella parties with the venue hire absolutely free.

The menu is full of gorgeous Cuban food, all expertly cooked by the restaurant’s experienced chefs. For a simple but varied choice, pick the tapas banquet, costing just £15.95 per person (4 person minimum),  and pick from 14 tapas dishes, including vegetarian options, sampling all the best of what Cuba has to offer. If you fancy something all to yourself, choose a few dishes from the main menu. Boasting a stunning array of tapas dishes for all tastes and requirements, dining at Viva Cuba will leave you spoiled for choice. Choose the butterfly sardine fillets sautéed in garlic butter and parsley for a flavourful fish dish, or choose the Piquillos al Gratin for sweet red peppers stuffed with buttered mashed potato, all topped with manchego cheese. There’s a rich variety of Cuban beers, cocktails and wines to choose from too, as well as many old favourites.


A lively and incredibly popular restaurant, Viva Cuba, Leeds is the perfect place to eat for stunning authentic tapas dishes and a tempting selection of drinks.
