This is an excellent restaurant. We had a party of 5 Friday evening and the food was delicious. Service was very good with excellent choices on the menu. The atmosphere was very comfortable with not a lot of noise that enabled us to have a good conversation. Relaxed with a cocktail and enjoyed before ordering dinner.

The ambiance is relaxing and the service was excellent. The food not so much. The appetizers were very good but the main entrees ok. My husband had a pork dish in a bananna leaf with a sauce that was so,so hot that it couldn't be eaten and the pork wasn't very flavorful on its own. He was warned but he... More

Service was amazing. Food arrived perfectly cooked. We operated off a set menu for our group, so I am not sure of usual choices. The spring rolls were really good and the green salad with sweet cornbread "croutons" (salad had some hot spice kick to it, but was balanced with the bread) was delish. I split the sweet potato tamales... More

Each time to visit Bar Harbor we make sure Havana is one of our dinners. Our experience here has always been amazing. Last evening, once again we dined and had great service and food. Our server was very attentive and the manager stopped by to ask how everything was. When we were about half way through our meal, a large... More

Paella almost as good as Mom's, my wife loved her Filet. A little hard on the credit card, but worth a stop.

This has to be one of the top few restaurants in Bar Harbor in terms of overall quality of food and service. Creative menu (Not just Cuban food), beautifully prepared and delivered. Halibut wrapped in bacon... yum... Would definitely return here on a future trip.

Expecting to be wowed, we cancelled reservations at Fathom and came to Havana. The mojito didn't compare with the ones I make with fresh mint that grows in my garden. The salad was boring. We did enjoy the grilled cheese appetizer. The scallops were cooked well, but the seasoning lacked complexity. The tuna was also served at a proper temperature,... More

The mojitos were original and outstanding. Arlo our server was professional and dedicated. The Paella was the best I ever had with so many flavors.

My sister recommended this hot spot after visiting last month. My brother and I went and were also delighted! The manager came by to ensure we were completely satisfied and were over the top thrilled with each and every bite. The mojitos are the best I've ever had. The outdoor seating is lovely. You can imagine being in Havana! The... More

We arrived for a late dinner to a cozy atmosphere. We were promptly seated by our hostess and quickly attended to by Enrique. After cursory review of the menu we had our minds set on sharing the mixed grill and Seafood Paella but, in discussion with our waiter, were persuaded to sample the freshly caught 100 lb halibut (Fish of...
