Good spot right across the dock and stop in after diving. Quesadillas are good and the chips/salsa really good. Nachos came out sloppy and soft a bit of disappointment and the dishes came out one at a time, and place wasn't busy. Quality of the...More

A bunch of boys who prefer to spend time on their phones rather than actually provide a service. The owner is being badly let down by the staff. Took over 45 mins to get a meal and we were the only ones there! Have tried...More

Came here for breakfast when we arrived too early for check-in at the nearby Park Royal, where we were staying for the upcoming week. We chose dishes that were house specialties and they were both outstanding. Forgive me if I say the names incorrectly, but...More

Went because we're staying close. Service was bad - no offer to refill our drinks so ate meal with no beverage, food was ok at best. My pork quesadillas were cheese with just a little pork added along outside edge. Save yourself and go elsewhere.

The place is very nondescript and the menu is sometimes limited, but when we have the red snapper or the fish of the day is is always very good. And the best mojito I've ever had and that includes cuba.

Was here after the cinema to grab something to eat. Ordered the chicke cesar salad which was quite good with plenty of chicken, salad leaves and 3 pieces of garlic bread. Nice and attentive staff and prices are reasonable for the location.

The dishes were equally delicious to the presentation. I was a bit skeptic, because it wasn't that busy. I understand that there are more scenic restaurants within a small vicinity of Paprika. My wife and I enjoyed a relaxing lunch as we watched the traffic...More

You should know and understand that the artwork that are hung over your counter is racist, and as a cruise director I cannot recommend your place to African Americans, or progressive whites who are looking to visit. If insulting travelers is what you are going for, then you have succeeded. I would never recommend this restaurant to my colleagues, nor my customers. Your food although good, left a very bad taste in my mouth.

No idea what the picture was. I spent all day outside the bar enjoying the ocean view.

May be a silly question but I am asking it anyway. Does Paprika accept US dollars or even Visa/MasterCard? I just want to make sure we can pay when we arrive hungry! Also is this a feasible walk from International port with children? (Last time we were in port we had a tour directly from the terminal and didn't venture just beyond the terminal shopping area other than by vehicle so I just want to make sure we will have a safe place to walk off etc)

Not silly at all. Yes we do accept US Dollars and also, credit cards. We are close to Puerta Maya and SSA International. Welcome to the island and a wonderfull time here!
