I returned after two years when the restaurant was closed due to the pandemic. As usual, very good food and pricey (prices have gone up like in all restaurants in Havana). A favorite in all seasons.

We met a couple earlier in the day that recommended this restaurant. He was a bit obnoxious so we weren't sure but thought we'd give it a try.... Well we were delighted when we arrived, the restaurant is gorgeous and really fun decor. Our waiter...was pleasant and his english was much better than our Spanish. The food was absolutely delicious, the lobster and fish were so fresh and flavourful, and the portion was huge!! We were so satisfied with the friendly and attentive staff, the well prepared and delcious food and the location was great too. I recommend Vistamar to anyone visiting HavanaMore

I went here for a drink and some lunch. Margarita not good, Lobster, grilled octopus not good. fufu de plátano (maybe 2 tablespoons was the size of the portion) it was ok but extremely small portion. On top the waiter confused our order and brought...2 lobsters, gave us an actitude explaining to us that we should specify when it’s not 2 , like it wasn’t clear enough when you say one. At the end we where waiting for other friends to keep ordering and have a good time but they completely lost our business with the actitud and the lack of effort on the food. Other than the beautiful sea sight. I would not recommend this place , neither for the service or the food.More

Went there Wednesday Nov. 20, 2019....Beautiful setting.......you cannot argue with that. Our waiter charged us for something that was supposed to be included.....AND IT WAS IN WRITING ON THE MENU. He was adamant about the charge regardless and we paid. My guess was that he...pocketed it. Would have been a 3-4 rating but now it is a 1 because I just don't like to be scammed. Would love to hear from the owners on their shady policies.More

The experience was perfect! I went with some friends and we didn’t have a reservation. They said normally it is a problem but they found a table for us. The service is super professional, all of them speak really good English. The seafood was delicious....I had lobster and my friends shared fish of the day. Just amazing! Congratulations!More

Credit where credit is due...the place has a beautiful atmosphere...it is right oceanfront and you can enjoy amazing views, sounds, sunsets, etc. However, this is not enough for the prices they charge. We had a dinner of 6....303 CUC.... Our appetizers took over 1 hour...to arrive.....no apologies our main courses....another 45 mins our bill? 2 mins our bill was wrong...we were being overcharged.....when we reviewed the bill, we were being overcharged by 4.5 CUC my issue is NOT with the amount...but the principle.. we brought it up to the server...she was bothered by it of course..... and she went away to rectify and bring back the change..... she grudgingly brought back $1.0 CUC....not the 4.5 CUC We were having a business dinner...i was not about to embarrass my client nor myself. We did bring it up to the manager on the way out to the parking but she politely listened to us but did NOTHING We will NEVER go backMore

Restaurant view is beautiful because of the infinity pool. Now the food and service were ok. Because tip is included servers did not try too much. The guy who served me was particularly uptight. Pool: if you’re going for the pool then forget it. It...doesn’t look like the pictures and no one bathes in it because the water is extremely dirty. When I went the pool was empty. View: totally worth it for this only reason. Beautiful view. But you could find a similar nice view in an old Havana hotel. Food: the food was good but nothing extraordinary. There are many nice restaurants in old Havana with better food than this one so not sure it’s worth going so far to this place for the food. I think people come for the view. Keep in mind this restaurant is far. I paid $20 round trip to get here because it is a drive from old Havana. I wouldn’t go again and I don’t think it’s worth leaving your area if you’re staying in old Havana to go here unless you want to go for the view.More
