Cubana co-owner Adrian Bagnoli said: “Throughout our 23-year journey as an independent tapas restaurant and bar, we’d like to think that Cubana's food has left a lasting mark on the culinary scene, receiving local and national acclaim.

“One of the highlights of our latest tapas menu is the emphasis on fresh seafood, sitting alongside our already popular Paella Mariscos.

“But I’m glad to say some things you can never change - our signature meatballs remain as popular as ever and will be a constant on our menu .”
