I previously visited mid-December 2013 at night for dinner with a group of friends. The quality of the food and service was very good and on a par with that expected in Europe and USA. I was curious to see if this was a one-off because restaurants in Havana frequently have varying standards depending on which team of cooks/waiters are... More

After spending three months on the island, I discovered that this restaurant was the only place where I felt at home. The food is outstanding, the attention level is great and you will fall in love with the terrace overlooking the sea. Best place in Havana.

Have been here a couple of times with friends -- once at night, once during the day. Each time we sat on the balcony. One of the most comfortable, relaxing, picturesque views you will have at a restaurant in Havana. The food was consistently good each visit. Sea food is there specialty. A bit off the beaten path, but well... More

We went to dinner at Rio Mar recommended by a friend who had been there several times. When you look outside you would not say it's a restaurant, it seems an apartment building. Once you walk in and get to the restaurant and terrace overlooking the mouth of the Almendares River, wow! Lovely food, seafood casserole, fish ceviche .... but... More

This rest which is in a posh area of L'Havana has an european look...you'll find candles along yr path...so charming..tables are in a small terrace overlooking L'Havana bay. Here I had my best lobster ...simply grilled but perfect and delicious. Good winelist! Careful service. I like this place even if the final bill (which won't affect an european wallet) is... More

The setting is beautiful and the service we received was good. Just unfortunate that my husband's (expensive) seafood was over cooked and my seafood pasta tasted like a whole tub of salt was added. Flavour was good though, hopefully it was just a one-off

It was my first time at Riomar , I had an excellent dinner with a great view of the Bay. Very good the appetizers, the ceviche and the fritura de malanga, and excellent the Shrimps as main course. You can also drink good wine, they have a good choice of wines from Spain, Italy and Chile. As normal is a... More

As this was highly ranked on Trip Advisor, I thought it prudent to book a table before I left the UK. A bit of difficulty getting myself understood but we got there. I used the concierge at our hotel to check that my booking had been made and they phoned them and confirmed. It worked really well. A 5 CUC... More

Ordered cangrejo enchilado and ropa vieja, had them countless times before in paladares and private places, always delicious. Not so in Rio mar. They served crab shells without meat. The ropa vieja was dry with raw bell pepper and banana. Forget it!
