Would only go again if we really wanted tapas. Could go somewhere else and have a nicer meal for the same amount of money. Also we’re not happy with the one of our cocktails. Was a shirt measure but the barman denied this. The quality of the food was good just overpriced and we did have to wait a long time before we got served.
The biggest problem was the noise level. Too many drinking and not eating.

One slight issue with the wine which was immediately dealt with by the waitress, otherwise another fabulous experience at Qubana. The food was wonderful, well presented, and all in great surroundings. Will definitely be returning.

The food was poor. Prawn starter with mango was really poor. 6 prawns on sticks with 3 mango purée shot glasses!!!
Mediterranean side was trrrible it looked a gray green colour, onions and green pepper. Where was the red pepper and tomato’s?
On the good side was the cocktails.

Food was really nice, service was ok (table reserved but not ready and took a long time to take our order)
My expectations were higher than the reality but would still go back again, with lowered expectations

We really enjoyed our visit to Quabana. The food was incredible and very reasonably priced. The restaurant decor is fantastic and really does make you think your sat in Cuba.

Couple of nit picks; we reserved a table and it wasn't ready when we arrived, fine but what's the point in picking a time? Second, we were in a bit of a corner which I think meant we got forgotten about for our order.

Apart from that, great, staff were friendly enough.

This is one of the most appealing restaurants in Wakefield as it has a varied and interesting menu and you can order the usual starter/main type combinations or take the Tapas route and eat a selection of smaller dishes. The interior decor has been well handled in a refurbished bank and many of the original, opulent architectural features are still very much apparent. This creates a convivial and elegant dining atmosphere. The service is very good and food is served promptly once your order has been processed. We are repeat customers due to the points above.

This is the second time I’ve been and felt I should comment as exactly same thing stood out last visit- service is all at beginning nothing at end- 3 people all asking same things drinks, food, one server even took me drink and started taking away- It’s like a massive push on drinks sales before food- Didn’t even get offered early bird, had to ask as came in at 6pm. Once food out nothing no how’s your meal, nothing- we didn’t even get asked about desserts ( this happened on last visit) just feel no continuity throughout and shouldn’t be over an hour trying to make eye contact with a server for the bill- bit disappointing brought friends back on second visit!

Hubby and I visited Qubana for the first time last Saturday and had a lovely evening. We started with lovely cocktails at the bar then moved into the restaurant later in the evening. I had the salmon which came with a side of your choice, I chose kale, asparagus and brocolli. It was a good sized portion and the salmon was cooked perfectly. I gave it a score of 9/10. Hubby had the short ribs with mashed potato and veg. He gave this 10/10, he loved it!! I had the fruit and nut brownie to finish and this was again a good sized portion and delicious. Overall a lovely tasty meal and very reasonably priced. Will definitely be going back.

Service was a little slow in terms of taking our order, we were sat for 20 minutes and had to ask if we could order and we were met by a lady rolling her eyes which was disappointing as the service is normally great.

Food was brilliant as always, only thing that put a dampener on the evening was we were crammed into a booth and there wasn't enough room for us let alone our plates and glasses as I had to sit with a tapas plate of food on my knee until some room cleared up. Bigger tables for bigger parties (there was only 5 of us) would be a great improvement

Booked for our silver wedding anniversary, I know it was a Monday night and didn't expect it to be too lively. The main problem was the steak meal which wasn't that hot and my T bone steak was gristly and hard to chew. I confess the staff apologised and changed the steak for a sirloin but that also was cold. So all in all not a good experience.

Hi Steve,thank you for your feedback.As discussed on Monday,your first steak a Rib-Eye (rare) was chewy yet we explained we usually recommend served Medium,we swapped it for a rare Fillet.The heat issue was due to rest time before cooking,for this we apologise again. I was hoping that our chats on the night,myself and the chefs apologies,alongside the complimentary coffees and aperitifs had almost made up for the steaks.It is not a common occurrence and we hope to see you again! Kind Regards, Em

Our first time here so not sure what to expect. The food was excellent - service a little slow but the servers were very pleasant and knowledgeable.
The lunchtime menu appeared to be good value but we went onto the normal menu. Food was good but I am puzzled as to why they serve one scallop and three chicken pieces to two people - this does not make sense. Why not have an even number of items?
Drinks were reasonably priced and overall we had a nice meal in pleasant surroundings.

Great to see Vegan options on the menu, and the waiters actively asked if any one was Vegan so they could make reccomendations. Great atmosphere, especially the chilled out roof terrace. Service and food you would expect in Leeds.
