Restaurante Paris

Caribbean in Habana Vieja

Housed in one of Havana's finest 18th-century baroque mansions, this place is all about location – slap-bang in the Plaza de la Catedral, one of the most romantic settings on the planet when the hustlers stay away, the mojitos (briefly) sharpen your senses and the band breaks spontaneously into your favorite tune. The food and service is fair to middling, rarely matching the setting.
