Al entrar a este restaurante, el visitante es sorprendido por la elegancia, buen gusto y las mas nuevas tendencias en la presentacion de los platos y el servicio. El primer atractivo del lugar, amen de la cocina, es el paisaje privilegiado con una vista unica de la desembocadura del Rio Almendares y el Torreon de la Chorrera. La decoracion, concepto y distribucion de los muebles y hasta el mismo ejercicio del arte culinario parecen puestos en funcion de lograr una experiencia exclusiva entre el rio y el mar.

Very Good Restaurant on the Water

We went to Rio Mar and had a very good meal. The restaurant sits on the water and can get a bit windy but is also quite beautiful. The food was very good and the portions were large. I had the grilled lobster and was quite pleased with that. The appetizers that they serve are also very good... read more

Great paella (seafood, cooked to order). Went there twice, the second time our lobster tails were too salty and unedible. Service rather good. Make sure you make a reservation on weekends!

The place has potential to be a real winner but we found our lunch to be rather plain/alright. The views where spectacular. The prices where goodand service was good, it was just lacking something

We stayed in a casa a few blocks away from this restaurant which was recommended to us by the casa owner. We decided to try it out on our last night as a more upper class dinner. We walked there at around 6.40pm, but right at the door the guard told us the restaurant is full until 9.30pm. We were... More

We read about this restaurant in the NY Times and were excited to try it. I'm so glad we did! We sat out on deck - where most of the seating is located and even though it was at night, it was still a beautiful setting. We had great mojitos, and both of us had a fish dish, provided by... More

We sat on the outside deck with a view of the Malecon strip, but Rio Mar had to put down the vinyl screens because the wind was blowing cold. The food was excellent: appetizers, mains, and desserts! Riomar specializes in seafood and my grilled lobster was cooked perfectly and the lime cheesecake (?) was excellent. By the time we left,... More

Food was excellent as was the service, and the ambiance. View was fantastic. The wine was reasonably priced for Cuba, and the sommelier very knowledgeable

Our group from the U.S. ate here our final night in Cuba. Thanks to the mild temperature, we sat outdoors on the terrace, which was sheltered from the rain. Seafood is the specialty. I don't eat seafood, but do eat chicken, and the kitchen had no problem accommodating me by preparing a different entree. It was the perfect spot to... More

Had a business lunch here, about 12 in our party. Service was excellent. We ordered a variety of dishes and shared bites all around. Everything tasted great, nothing bad among the lot.
