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

I spent a lazy Sunday morning in the Cafe de Paris. The place had an ambiance that made you feel like you were in the Havana of old. The staff was polite and attentive, and the bartender poured excellent Cuba Libres and Mojitos. We didn't have any food, but enjoyed the morning there as it was a wonderful escape from... More

The location of the Cafe de Paris is the best part (if you're in Old Havana, you'll probably find it). The service was good and decently fast, and there was interesting entertainment. The only issue I had with it was that I just hate paying 4CUC for a mojito...but to be fair, that was a pretty average price unless you... More

Recommended by my brother and his wife, for value for both food and drink and it lived up to expectations. Great band there as well. You can sit inside to hide from the sun or stay outside and people watch like we did. Eithers good for resting the throbbing feet lol
