About a long block North of El Cid. Open to the street and ocean across. Adequate menu. Attentive. waiter suggested red snapper in garlic (not on menu) which was excellent. Asked for and received happy hour refreshments.

Paprika is as laid back and informal as eating at home, with great food and wonderful service. This was our second trip to Cozumel, and we wanted to return to Paprika because of our experience there on our first trip a little over a year ago. The food was equally good, and our server, Isidro, remembered us from our prior... More

this is on tourist row so we don't usually eat there but happened to be in the area. I had the best waffle with cooked bananas and ice cream. More like dessert than breakfast. Very friendly staff. They had so many great options that we will go back to try more

we had breakfast at Paprika's 4 times in 7 days, every where else was a comparison and nothing else held up to Paprika's.

I am continually amazed by the lack of awareness certain business owners have when it comes to creating appropriate environments which strive to insure an enjoyable environment which then rewards the owners with return business. The food at Paprika's is clearly a cut above, but this did not overcome the inexcusable cacophony. When we arrived, music was blaring, and trying... More

I didn't have any of the entrees as this place, so I can't testify to how good that is. I walked down the street from the cruise terminal and it started to rain so I walked into this place to wait it out. I ordered the guacamoli and chips and drinks. But what I ordered was very good. And the... More

We've been to Tikila's across the street and the food there comes from Paprika and that by itself is wonderful. Eating at Paprika's is a little different - the food is great and the menu is somewhat different than the "beach bar" that Tikila's is. Same great, friendly service, drinks and the kitchen really performs with it's delivery.

We had never been to Cozumel before, and wandered into Paprika on an evening walk looking for some place to have dinner. The fish was great! Just caught that afternoon, it doesn't get any fresher, or tastier. We returned several times at lunch for fish tacos at lunch. Really too much food to eat.
