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.

Highly recommend you take your time and go here. The food is great and the views are just a bonus! We did 2 different octopus appetizers and some shrimps - very simple, but with lots of flavor. Octopus and 2 different preparations of snapper - as our main course. Mojitos all around and just enjoy the view... 9s across the... More

We took our work team for dinner last Friday February 27th - they went their last year and wanted to go back. We all had a great time, not only is it a superb location where we sat on the terrace and looked out to where the river meets the sea. Our team of 22 people had a choice from... More

This restaurant is placed where the river meets the sea and is a good call for lunch. Service is great and you need to have the "polvo" as a starter. As the main dish, order something with lobster, it could be Lagosta Termidor or their seafood mix. Both are amazing.

I was staying at a wonderful Casa Particular called Casa Bellavista Havana. From the 9the floor penthouse had a great view of The Rio Mar restaurant. I didn't make a reservation and only a few people were eating at 6 pm in the evening. I would recommend that you do make a reservation to ensure you and your party get... More

I'd waited awhile to dine here, and it was about all I could have hoped for. Just inside the limits of Mirimar, it's a rather short taxi regardless to Rio Mar. We had a reservation, but they still had to do some table arranging due to a couple large, latino mens' trip to the city. We eat early, so we... More
