It didn’t take long for Revolución de Cuba to establish itself as one of Leeds’s party bars, but if you’ve not tried the food, you’re missing out.

I dropped in after a long day in the office and found solace in the mouth-watering selection of food, and the cocktail menu (it had been one of those days). So, I decided to whet my appetite with the Miami Vice. Mixed with Don Q Anejo Rum, coconut, milk, pineapple and Strawberry Daiquiri, it’s a fruity little number that never disappoints (bit like me really).

I always struggle to pick from tapas menus, but I managed to come to a joint decision with the lovely Sara Garvey. Up came Jerk Fried Chicken in a Cajun and jerk spice crumb with Revs homemade rum mayo - absolute banger.

Main plates are similarly varied, and cover meat, fish and veggie options. Feeling adventurous, I thought I’d try something new and went with the Chargrilled Swordfish.

Arriving with a spicy tomato, garlic and olive sauce, the fish was light and perfectly cooked. I chose had mine with zesty rice, but you have the choice of crispy patatas if you’re more peckish. With just enough room left to squeeze in a light dessert, I opted for the creamy Coconut Ice-Cream – to die for with grilled pineapple topping.
