The food at Havana is very, very good. Bar Harbor has lots of pretty good restaurants; Havana is better. Havana combines excellent food with service that is friendly, accommodating, and professional, which adds up to a rare combination. Often otherwise excellent restaurants will be unhelpful or grumpy about dietary issues. Havana could not have been nicer and more accommodating.

We visit Bar Harbor each summer and our dinner at Havana is our favorite restaurant time and time again. The service is attentive with very personable and professional wait staff. The cocktails are amazing and the wine list is exceptional. My husband and son raved about the crabcake appetizer, the provolone cheese was so tasty, and the salads were fresh... More

Our waitress Georgia was knowledgeable and friendly. We all had the seafood paella and it was plentiful but more importantly delicious. Ton of fabulous seafood and just a hint of smoky flavor that was incredible. Our last night in Bar Harbor was all the better for having stopped for a little slice of Havana.

We had been wanting to dine at Havana for quite some time. Definitely worth trying. Place is clean and simply decorated. No special view but not a big deal. Our meal started with warm bread - whole grain and corn bread - and 3 dips/spreads - guava butter, a seasoned olive oil (maybe chili?) and a bean spread. Wonderful. We... More

My husband and I made reservations for dinner as part of our weekend stay in Bar Harbor. Our B&B recommended Havana. We read the menu on the website and decided to give it a try. The warm bread with butter and bean dip was delicious. The appetizer made from provolone cheese was fabulous. My mojito was the best I have... More

Decided to try this place during our three night stay in BH. Made reservations (suggested) and arrived early, but were accommodated right away. The chef sent out a tasting of halibut ceviche which was very good. We were also brought a basket of bread with whole wheat and blueberry cornbread, which was excellent with the guava flavored butter. Wine list... More

We tried their informal and separate outside patio first, The food was great - the pork tacos particularly so and they have a number of inventive cocktails. If you're looking for a casual meal or simply to spend less for quality food and drink this is your spot. We went inside the next night to a proper fine-dining restaurant: white... More

Great service, great atmosphere and good food! The live music was also so charming. It’s calm and not too loud – it really added to the meal. Warning – the Mixed Grill appetizer is absolutely HUGE! We ordered the portion for 2 and it could’ve easily been our meal if we added a side. It’s hard to “complain” about big... More

My family visited Havana after noticing that they were among the few places in Bar Harbor which had vegan and vegetarian options beyond a completely uninspired house salad, and had a mixed experience. We were ushered to a table nested in the back corner of the back section despite there being many other open tables which didn't fill up during... More
