Description: “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.

Don't get me wrong, we ate here twice and had very tasty dishes each time, but service is extremely inconsistent. The first night, our server reminded me of the little squirrel from Ice Age frantically running all over the place. Either she could use so Ritalin or worse, lay of the white powder before her shift. Either way, she actually... More

We only went to the bar at Havana Blue and everything again was great. This is a place to go for the "special occasion". Since we had our 25th dinner at Coco Joe's we just went to the top to Havana Blue for a drink and t-shirt for my son.

Superb setting on the second floor of a plantation style building right on Morningstar Beach. Excellent atmosphere, tapas to start and some great Sea Bass. Service was great and the Mojito's just what I needed.

You couldn't ask for a better view or more beautiful restaurant, but the humidity and heat made us all sweat and wilt. Some nice big ceiling fans would have helped tremendously.

ccpt95, we're still the same restaurant you loved last time you visited! It's disappointing to hear your latest meal with us was not on the same level. We'll make sure to pass along your feedback to our kitchen about the spice level in the mashed potatoes especially; we haven't heard this complaint before, so hopefully it was just a particularly...

The restaurant has wonderful views of the approach to the harbor and is well appointed. Service was good as was the food. It's on the pricey side so don't have a cow when there is nothing on the menu for less that $30. Don't pass up the Langosta Tostados. They were super!!! The only down sides of our evening was...

Four of us had dinner at the Havana Blue on 9/10 and had a nice table overlooking the ocean. Our server greeted us and told us about the concept of the restaurant, menu and specials. She was VERY upbeat. One of the specials was the Surf & Turf, a 10 oz filet combo with lobster for $113. This was a... More

First of all let me start off by saying if you want to be a top notch restaurant invest in some air conditioning as well as having a great ocean view. My wife and I ate here on 9/6/14, ordered the langosta tostadas which didn't even taste like there was any lobster or shrimp inside them waste of $24 dollars.... More

We designed our open-air dining room to create the perfect space for this, but we understand that some days are warmer than others. We're sorry you were hot and a little disappointed by your meal,...
