“Tropical serenity meets cutting-edge chic.” These descriptive words spoken by co-owner, Nicole Horstmeyer, best describe the company vision of Blue Shore Grill which owns and operates the Frenchman’s Reef & Marriott Morning Star Beach Resort’s hottest restaurant – HAVANA BLUE. Overlooking Morning Star Beach, HAVANA BLUE is by far the island’s most sought after restaurant. The stunning décor features an eclectic mix of New York, South Beach and the Caribbean style to create a hip, yet approachable vibe. The restaurant’s cuisine combines authentic Cuban and Latin dishes with exotic spices and tangy sauces from the Pacific Rim. All of this, combined with the restaurant’s oceanfront location, creates a culinary experience unlike any other in the Caribbean.

Expensive food. Okay taste. No air conditioning, so we sweated through dinner. I had heard great things about Havana Blue, but was not overly impressed. We were so hot and sweaty, that the dinning experience was lost. Maybe larger, more circulating fans would help. There was also not really a view of the ocean from the tables. You could hear...

The food is beautifully prepared and delicious! This restaurant is located on the Frenchmen's Reef property but not hotel owned. Atmosphere is great and it's right on the beach.

Our meal was delicious. I had the Mahi-Mahi. The warm bread had a cilantro, olive oil, onion and garlic dressing. The drinks where also tasty. The meal a little pricey but good. We had other meals that were pricy but not so good. To the manager, larger wet paint signs would have avoided my sister getting paint on her hands... More

We had a wonderful dinner at Havana Blue. The view is beautiful. Service was excellent. We had the taco appetizer, lobster and steak. It was all prepared perfectly and presented beautifully. Would definitely go here again.

We had a fabulous meal at Havana Blue! The restaurant is very beautiful and we requested a table overlooking the water when we made our reservation so our view was perfect. Their menu has many great choices and the special that night, sea bass, was out of this world. Definitely one of our favorite restaurants this trip!

This restaurant is right on Morning Star Beach. Very friendly wait staff and the Mahi wrap is great. The Sand Bar below is also a great place for drinks while on the beach.

Waited and waited for waitress while she helped the 3 couples that came after us. Way to much money for a bad time.

It's rare for our servers to leave our guests unattended, Mtoback72, so we're shocked to hear you felt ignored. Please accept our apologies for the delays and inconveniences. That's not the kind of restaurant we are, and we're sorry that's the impression you've gotten. If you'd like to speak with us about your experience, please don't hesitate to reach out... More

This dinner is definitely pricey but worth the money. The restaurant itself is the nicest by far at the Marriott! The service is also the best! Much more of a younger crowd appeal, yet still perfect for all ages! I found the meals to be very good and the desserts were amazing!! A must experience
