We were highly recommended by Cuban friends. We were three and one Cuban from Habana among us. We unanimously found the food excellent! Besides, the view was nice and the service was great.

The place is located where the Almendares river enters the sea, nice terrace overlooking the water. Alejandro is an excellent sommelier, the place offers good vine selection. We had more visits and each visit the restaurant offers something special. Worth visiting.

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.

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.
