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.

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.
