“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.

Great dinner

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.

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

Not sure what "experiential dining" means, but the food was good. This restaurant is upstairs right on the beach. Be careful....the floors are VERY slippery.

On the water, beautiful setting, great service, a meal to remember. They lined up a taxi and made sure all of our requests were taken care of in a professional and friendly manner.

food was just ok, especially for the price tag. also, trying too hard to be "creative" resulting in a clash of flavors rather than synergy. much better food at sands for half the price

This is by far the best meal we have eaten all week. Atmosphere was nice, service was satisfactory and the food was outstanding. This was the only meal were we felt like it was well worth the high prices.
