We found Cafe de Paris for dinner when O'Reilly's as dead...we were happy we did. A French-style bistro in Habana, well OK!!! Outdoor cafe seating was the perfect solution for a warm Habana evening. As usual, lighter Cristal for my wife and darker & more flavourful Bucanero for me. Grilled fish was well-handled and the salad & fried plantain were... More

Stopped for a drink here. Pretty unremarkable place, pricing fair, band playing. Didn't try the food as too early and made mistake of trying somewhere really awful. Obviously a problem with bags being pinched as the doorman chased a couple of young kids away and two people were warned by waiting staff not to leave cameras or bags on table.

located in the center of Havana vieja we visited Cafe de Paris a couple of times for coffee, lunch and cocktails. They have a nice terrace from where you can watch people and city life. They don't open until 9:30am, so if you are a jet legged tourist dying for coffee check out the local peso place right across the... More

On the corner of Obispo and San Ignacio and with outside seating this place has a great café atmosphere. The service is good and the food reasonable and reasonably priced. Good for lunch with a sandwich or evening meal with a good value menu.

This bar was a few minutes from my hotel and I stopped there several times. The music was really good and so you can expect this place to fill up quickly. They have excellent pizzas and very good Mojitos.

the pizza was decent but I usually just went there for a few beers. met some cool tourists from Germany there but the service was pretty brutal & the waiter couldn't even remember 3 drinks & could only bring things out 1 at a time it seemed. always left before the band came on because I don't like that music....

We had pizza and spaghetti, it took 15 minutes to get served, so we expected it to be nice when we found out that it was precooked, right from the can/package, really? Mojito was OK but the food ruined it all. Musicians are rude too if you don't give as much money as they expect even when their music was... More

Very rude waiter who ignored everyone except his friends. Live music was great but the food was really bad and the drinks more expensive than average

Ordered a mojito and a Cuban sandwich. Mojito tasted like grapefruit juice...yuck! The "cuban" sand which came out on French bread with one slice of ham and one slice of cheese, no spices sauces condiments or any flavor. I took 2 bites before realizing how disgusting and plain it was and had to inspect. I waited 10 minutes while the... More
