Good food and great atmosphere.

As a second choice menu for dinner we were not to be disappointed. The Ropa vieja was superb and the drinks and food reasonably priced. The atmosphere with live music was second to none of anywhere we visited in Cuba.

We went here late night when we heard a band playing and stuck there for hours. The band was great, the waiters were friendly and the drinks were reasonable. You sit outside so you get to enjoy the cooler nights (if you are there at night) and also see all the people walking by in old Havana.

Neither the food nor the drink, just simply go there to listen music at 21:00 pm. It occurs at the outside of restaurant till midnight. I hope you enjoy.

This bar/restaurant is in a great location, just behind the university and in old Havana. It was easy to find and we went at 9:45 on a Sunday night, there was a live band playing. We got a table outside and the drink service was prompt. We order mojitos and then saw other tables getting big daiquiris in martini glasses.... More

Nice place to visit during evening and night. There is live bands playing during afternoons and evenings. Little bit expensive for budget travellers. It is not five star cafe-bar but prices are 5 star for sure.We found better places to sit and relax afterwords. Do not go for name only.

We sat outside under a tree and enjoyed the breeze and the amazing music coming from inside. We could see the band through the windows and they were having a great time! The food was good; it came fast and it had a great presentation. The lemonades were good as well, and really saved me from dying on the August... More

Fabulous food - but we were only able to do so because we paid for the Hemingway tour - the tour guides knew where the best restaurants were. There is no advertising and some of the places we ate at had no signs nor were they on any "strip" but the meals were included and with lobster and steak for... More

We stopped into Cafe Paris for a drink and to listen to some salsa music. It was wonderful! The drinks were strong and the band played some really amazing music. I have to make a comment about the flutist for the band. I am not really a "flute" kind of guy, but may I just say that this man put... More

Had a Pina Colada and it was not good. If you are thirsty and standing out front, grab a beer but there are many better bars nearby.

Well ... the food is not bad. The price tag pretty good for what you get. But, when it comes to drinks, you pay as much as for your main course. On the other hand that you wonder how much rum they use for the mojitos, because you barely can find the door to get out ... LOL
