“Fresh from the ocean to your table”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 23, 2013

On the last day of our trip diving with our Colorado based dive group we stopped into Paprika to grab a bite before heading to the airport. I only wish I had been there earlier in the trip! Same-day fresh whole fish, scored, seasoned and cooked perfectly, what more could a hungry guy want! The fish special is sold by weight and presented on a platter still whole on a base of fries and framed by a nice salad. The atmosphere was perfect, an open air design right across from the water. Located next door to the Casa Del Mar hotel, this one is not to be missed if you are looking for well prepared, ocean to table fresh fish at a reasonable price. The staff was wonderful, our waiter spoke perfect english and the beer was ice cold and refreshing.

“Fabulous little gem!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 20, 2013

We found this lovely little restaurant early on in our stay in Cozumel, and loved it. Generous salad portions, wonder fried red snapper, great service from our waiter, Iram. Highly recommend trying this one, very reasonably priced; make sure you come and try it!

“Perfectly prepared seafood”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 28, 2013

My wife and I discovered this place just the other night and thank goodness we did. They prepared all the seafood perfectly from the tender and delicious calamari appetizer to the fresh catch special. We will be going back before our vacation ends. It is so rare to find any restaurant that has such touch when it comes to the proper cooking of fresh seafood but Paprika is one of the rare gems in the culinary world.
