Have a music band playing in the cafe rather than "wandering minstrels". We probably spent more money giving donations to musicians than beer, they're everywhere but luckily not persistent in their requests. Again no locals and for us.. to many coming in and asking for western food. Cocktails were 4cuc which is mid-range for Havana.

We stopped by at 9:00pm Saturday night and had to listen to the great Cuban band through the doors as the indoors and the patio was full. Fun setting.

Cafe Paris is a great place to sit and watch the world go by. The service is slow and the food average, but the location makes it a good place to stop and have a beer or mojito.

Cute cafe/bar with patio in Old Havana. Enjoyed chilling with a mojito on the patio in the daytime, great for people watching. At night they have live latin bands and there are lots of tourists. Drinks are decent, location is great.

Sat down with my family and was completely ignored for a good 20mins. We were hot and thirsty and no-one even took the time to say sorry were busy or here's a menu. Needless to say we left and found a great place up the street.

Stopped by to get a drink in the early afternoon and got to hear their great band (and pick up a CD!) On the way back to our place we stopped back in to eat. The service while eating was sloooow but we were on vacation and knew to possibly expect that. We had the pizza which was pretty good!... More

We just stopped for a drink initially but there was a brilliant band playing and we ended up staying all evening watching them. The bartender "refused" to serve a beer. We had to have mojitos. Oh well, never mind. ¡Cuando en Habana ...! It was a fun, lively atmosphere and we had a really great time. We did have a... More

A decent corner café and bar and restaurant too. Decent food, the place had indoor and outdoor seating. Service was bland, considering how nice most other places were. The place was clean and had live music at night

In this place you can have a taste of Cuban Culture but you should stay inside. They usually have live music and the food is great and unexpensive.

A definite tourist trap. We were a group of 5 and two of us ordered pizza. Both got sick. One had to take medication to combat nausea. If you're going there for drinks and music it might be a good place. I did not care for the food. The staff were very unattentive and felt like they don't want to... More
