This is a really great spot to stop in your wanderings for a bit of the drinks and to enjoy the music which really has a great beat.

Cafe de Paris is excellent for Life Music and dancing until 1 o`clock, what differentiates it from other places that the played music is not only latin. I did not try it for eating, but for a late music bar is perfect.

Terrible. I ordered a cheese pizza which was probably my mistake, but how can something so simple be that bad? The cheese actually looked like someone ate it and regurgitated. I only ate one slice and ended up having to stop for food at another location once we left. As soon as I ate the pizza I started feeling bad.... More

By its name, you might imagine a trendy place with excellent food and caring waiters : the menu is kind of the same as elsewhere in Cuba, maybe a bit more expensive actually and the waiters aren't that caring and do not reflect the population's cheerfulness. I had dinner once there but regretted it as some excellent adresses, less known... More

In the street you have the smell of sewers and the waitress was really not nice and agressive, after two questions, I decided to leave for a nicer place... Plus it's on the most touristic street of Havana, not reprensentative of an Havana bar...

There is something so fun about dinning on the street in Havana. Surrounded by music and dancing you will enjoy the tasty menu and good drinks. Good spot for a mid day lunch!

I popped in as there was a live band playing. The atmosphere was really cool while the music was on but this was their last song. Ok this happens. Then the mojito I had ordered arrived. It tasted like the melting water you get in your glass from the ice when you've just finished a mojito. I didn't finish it;... More

We could happily spend hours here. Corazones de Fuego are a superb band and play every other day - but im sure the others are good too. Buy their CD, you wont be disappointed. If they have a copy of their old one, with Chan Chan and Yolanda on, get that too, its bizarely excellent for a band playing in... More

The music at this place is amazing and is what drew us into the Cafe. The service was not great and the food was not good. Go for the lively atmosphere and great music and enjoy a cocktail while listening to the music but think twice about ordering any food.
