We arrived for 8:45pm - our table was in the small dining area where there was already a party in there. We asked to move but there were no spare tables. We wanted to move from near the doorway to the table in the corner but still told no because of social distancing? It took a while before anyone came to take a drinks order. We then had to ask if we could order food because we had been waiting for so long - to then be told that there will be a very long wait for food because you had large tables which had already ordered.
We should have been told all this before we sat down

Hello Really sorry to hear about this, it does seem the reception team got it wrong on this occasion, we were experiencing a delay with it being the start of the party season, as it were, on a Saturday and you are absolutely correct in saying this should have been explained to you upon entry I will check in to the way we communicated at front door on both this and the fact they didn't move you to another table if one was available Apologies once again Martin Perry Qubana Manager

Hola Ann My apologies you felt rushed, we do always try to extend tables where possible if needs be, but with Friday's and Saturdays in particular this can be difficult I will contact open table as it should confirm on your booking the timings but maybe this is missing or needs to be clearer.

Before I comment on the food I would just like to say the staff were outstanding and very attentive.
To be honest we expected the food to be of a higher quality for a restaurant with so many good reviews, however we were left disappointed. I’m not in anyway saying the food was bad but certain dishes lacked a lot of flavour. We chose to have tapas as opposed to a starter and a main, which would have been the better option. The belly pork was very nice as was the goat curry but 2 out of 8 tapas dishes was not a great score really. I think with slight alterations the food could become more authentic which in turn would raise the standard. The decor of the restaurant is unbelievably pretty and stylish however the background music was not Spanish or Cuban in anyway whatsoever. Despite this review I think I would visit again in the future to see if any changes have been made as the place has so much potential and could be far better than it currently is.

Hola Ben Sorry you did not enjoy some of the Tapas dishes if you would like to expand on which dishes disappointed please email me on bookings@qubana.co.uk The music policy does change dependent on time of day, and whilst try to keep to the flavour of Fiesta style music we do have to cater to popular tastes too which is not always an easy balance, we do look at this often so will see what we can do. Kind Regards Martin Perry Qubana Manager

Responded on 23 November 2021

Hi Peter Very sorry for your experience, it was an incredibly busy weekend and whilst we try to predict popular dishes as best as possible, it is not always possible to get these spot on. Very sorry the table and menus were grubby I will certainly take that up, with the team that were on shift on Sunday, to make sure our usual high standards are followed through every day Please contact me on bookings@qubana.co.uk if I can do anything else for you Kind Regards Martin Perry Qubana Manager

We were put in a side room. Which I wasn’t impressed by, it was my friends birthday and the side room had no atmosphere the tables were sticky and wonky.. we were asked for our order 1 hour after sitting down, because the main room was obviously taking all the orders. I would never have booked the restaurant if I knew we were to be treated like second class citizens.. I joke.. but that is genuinely how I felt. The restaurant had lovely booths and we were just left out in the cold.. I wasn’t the only one that wasn’t impressed by the side room. Another couple complained.. The food was average, it took too long to get to us, a good job we had good company. Oh and it was my friend’s birthday and it was the only place I’ve ever been that didn’t offer a birthday dessert.. Wouldn’t be bothered to go again in a hurry…. Such a let down!

Visiting Wakefield to go to the Hepworth Gallery we booked Qubana without really knowing the area. Had a lovely meal - great food and wine (the Halloumi in honey was gorgeous as was the Salmon with dill and caviar). Lovely cocktails too. Its also a nice setting with generous booth seating. The thing that made it really excellent was the service, the waiters and waitresses were really charming, fun and helpful. A really lovely lazy Saturday lunch.

Great afternoon lunch with plenty options. The menu has changed slightly with the 3 for £9 on tapas no longer available.A few new added extras like the curried goat make it worthwhile

Nice food, nice atmosphere, we were tucked away in a small room, I was directly facing a couple eating and my husband was directly facing another couple eating, a little awkward. We felt like we had been squeezed in.

We were seated upstairs which was good, it took over two hours to order food for six people, the staff were rude when I said the table wouldn’t sit everyone for eating the hostess just said ‘errr yea it will’ then walked off. Food was average with long wait times for everyone’s food to come out. Will not be returning

Qubana
Responded on 23 November 2021

Really sorry for this experience, the booths are designed upstairs for groups of 6 to 8 but we can always find another table to increase the size and this should have been done for your party. If you would like to email me direct at bookings@qubana.co.uk I will be happy to discuss what happened with your order which, I believe it was a communication from the terrace to kitchen that was missed and again you have my utmost apologies for this wait.

The food was very tasty with a varied choice on the tapas menu. Most of my party had the Jambalaya and commented on how tasty it was and the chunks of tender chicken and chorizo in it.

The service was exceptionally polite and the waiter tended to our every need with food and drinks.
