Cabana Brasilian Barbecue, Leeds

April 23, 2016 1 comment

Situated in the heart of Leeds city centre,  vibrant Cabana proved a great antidote to the grey, dull rain filled skies outside when we visited.

A five minutes walk from Leeds train station and slap bang in the middle of the Trinity shopping complex, it’s very easy to get to which is good news for a non driver like myself.

On getting to the restaurant, we were shown to our seats where the children were supplied with crayons and activity sheets, which is always great with me as it keeps them amused whilst we wait for the food!

As we made ourselves comfy and ordered drinks, they were happily reading jokes and filling in wordsearches.

All the starters sounded delicious, but I eventually settled on the spicy ribs, which we all enjoyed trying! They were absolutely delicious, and came with a side portion of coleslaw.  Make sure you have plenty of napkins though because if you’re anything like us, you’ll end up with half of it down your chin!

The children can order from their own special children’s menu, and there’s a great range of food to try from torrados to ribs for the more adventurous, to chicken breast or beefburgers for the more traditional palate.

My two plumped for the chicken breast burgers, which they thoroughly enjoyed and loved the novelty of the Brazilian flag waving proudly out of the top of the bun! Fries and the mini corn on the cob were well received and quickly disappeared too.

WP_20160416_017I also decided to have a burger, but in my case I went for the burger which had an added twist of beans and pulled pork as well as salad inside.


After we’d polished off our mains, the friendly waitress brought across the dessert menu. The children had a set meal where the price of the dessert is in with the meal.

(You get a soft drink, a main course and a dessert when you buy from the children’s menu.)

For £6.95, this is excellent value.

Froyo (frozen yoghurt) is what they had, and you pick your own toppings and sauce to decorate it and finish  it  off.

One had caramel sauce, the other had Smarties, which is just a couple of the many toppings which you could choose from.

I thoroughly enjoyed my ice cream and mango sorbet.WP_20160416_022

My one regret is that I didn’t have a cocktail from the gorgeous sounding cocktail range.

When I’m next in Leeds, I’m planning on rectifying this and having a nice, long cold one!

Definitely worth a visit for lunch when you’re out shopping.
