De Paris is just steps away from the posh green La Union hotel and the Plaza Jose Marti, but you are also straightaway part of Cuban daily life when sitting outside on the two chairs they have at streetside. We enjoyed people watching and nice starters and drinks, the bruschetta and the shrimp cocktail were pretty good and not too... More

it was late at night and we wanted to go dancing and drinking so we stopped off first to eat something. We ordered a pizza and it was so delicious. The service was very nice and friendly. I def would return here again

Three friends and I had a lovely lunch at De Paris. This is a tiny place, which has great air conditioning ( we really needed it) and friendly service. The day I visited the lunch started with a yummy squash soup, followed by really tasty shrimps in garlic. The waitress did not speak English but we all were able to... More

It's amazing what they can serve from such a small kitchen. You walk through the area where the food is prepared when you visit the washroom. There is very little equipment but even so they managed to serve up a decent Cuban meal. I was a bit concerned that there was no water to wash your hands with in the... More

Very small but quaint restaurant. Located near the Hotel Union, which made it very convenient. Have the shrimp special. There are tons of shrimp served with salad and rice. Cuban sandwich is also excellent. Served chocolate ice cream with honey for dessert. Yum. I liked it so much I ate here twice.

We went for lunch after the drive from Havana, while waiting for our rooms to be ready at the nearby hotel La Union. A delicious salad with oil and vinegar was followed by a ham and cheese sandwich and an ice cream. All are pictured, and you can see that it was just what I needed at that time. The... More

Unfortunately, we ordered pizza and found it to be doughy, without any flavor and no spices whatsoever. Not that pizza in Cuba is going to resemble the Italian pie exactly, but we found it to be a very poor substitution. Other diners had ordered more "Cuban selections" and their meals did look delicious with generous portions. Service was only average... More
