Located directly across from the Malecon on the waterfront, the view vantage point was breath taking. As usual our server was wonderful and beautiful. Food is fantastic but not quite deserving of a 5. If you are looking for romantic ambiance, this is the place. Parking is easy and they do take reservations.

Enjoyed a great dinner as the sun was setting on the back deck. It was def one of the best meals we had during our time in Cuba. The butterfly lobster was filling and very tasteful. I highly recommend it. Then again it was all good, from the appetizers (try the octopus) to the frozen mojitos (out of this world).... More

we took a convertible taxi to this restaurant. this restaurant looks and feels like any other in Europe that is by the water. The menu items offered a break from the chicken with rice and beans staple we have been eating throughout the trip. I had the chocolate tart for dessert and it was wonderful. the dessert cost $5 which... More

This was one of my favorite restaurants of our week's stay. It is located on the bay at the mouth of La Puntilla in Maramar, and has a stunning view. The food is upscale and contemporary with European influences. The fish was wonderful and delicate, and the appetizers and sides were skillfully prepared. However, I cannot give this Paladar an...

The last night of our trip we selected this restaurant and so glad we did. The food was delicious I had the red snapper w/ capers and fresh steamed veggies, black beans and rice and a salad. I didn't have desert, but sure it was good. The views are stunning right on the water and the inside of the restaurant... More

Rio Mar does not disappoint. The views are stunning and the food is exceptional. I've been twice in the past year on two different trips to Havana. With so many great restaurants to choose from, going back to Rio Mar says how much I liked the restaurant.

Food in Havana is complicated. But this restaurant delivers big time. As a tour leader who takes groups repeatedly to Cuba, this restaurant always provides excellent food, in a healthy style American prefer. Great seafood, great vegetables in addition to regular Cuban specialties. Excellent service. And the view is amazing, looking over the entrance to the Almendares river. The restaurant... More

Good location with nice view from the terrace. Good selection of sea food, but the way how it is prepared - just average or a little bit above. Staff nice and helpful in recommendation.
