Visited Bar Harbor last week. First two nights had an average dinner. Our 3rd night there made a reservation at Havana and was not disappointed. From the description, I thought it was going to be Cuban food that I'm use to...rice, beans, pork, etc. But this was delicious upscale food with Latin inspiration. The tastiness started with the warm bread,... More

Food was above average and interesting choices. I would recommend this for Bar Harbor. Owner came by to see how things were.

Great food, drinks, bread. The lobster stew (not what it's called) with coconut curry was amazing. Sat on patio in back and was in heaven.

Went here last night and was really looking forward to it but came away disappointed. Mojitos were decent but our meal was lackluster & for the pricing I expected more. Crab cakes tasted blah and sauce had no notes of cocoanut as specified. Non alcoholic drink my daughter got tasted like baby food and my farm salad consisted of nothing... More

My wife and I had one of the best meals of our vacation. We were not able to get a reservation, this was a last minute decision but we sat at the bar, which we enjoy doing. We didn't see the full restaurant but it appeared to be nicely done. The service was attentive and we got our drinks right... More

My husband and I went to Havana for dinner one evening on our vacation in Bar Harbor. This restaurant is about two blocks away from the main tourist zone in downtown Bar Harbor, and to be honest, we never would have gone to Havana if it wasn't for the high reviews from TripAdvisor. We had one of the best meals... More

My husband and I have eaten at Havana three times. Of those six meals, one was outstanding and five were good. The appetizers are excellent, and the main preparation is always well-prepared whether that is seafood, meat, or poultry. There is something about the composition of the entrees though that just misses the mark for the price point of this... More

This was one of the best meals we've had in awhile. The wine list is superb; the scallops were as tender as any we've eaten, and the pork dish well spiced. Wonderful service; the manager and owner spent time speaking with us. An absolute must.

Coming from Florida, I was hesitant going to a cuban restaurant in Maine, however it was very very good. Could be that part of me was giddy just getting into town, but either way, this was delicous and our best meal in Maine (unless you are in Maine to only eat Lobster). My wife and I went here for our... More

The meal started with oysters (both raw and grilled) while sitting at the outdoors bar. We then moved in for a wonderful dinner. I enjoyed perfectly prepared scallops. The special that evening was swordfish and it was amazing. Owner Michael Boland stopped by the table and accepted our favorable comments. Waiter Sam was helpful and fun. Oh yes - if... More
