I went there last week after a few months and can say that this restaurant lost its appeal. First, there was no menu anymore, you had to order from 5 items they had on a board. No red meat. No vegetarian pasta. So I ordered a fish "emperador" which was probably the worst cut and blandest taste I have ever... More

Wanted a nice restaurant for our last night, so our hotel recommended and booked the Rio Mar. A good taxi ride outside the old town and made our way into a dark alley and through into the restaurant. A waterside table awaited. Food is fish based and we had prawns and avocado & lobster tacos to start. All very good.... More

Rio Mar is a lovely paladar situated on Havana Bay. We were eating outside when a heavy rainstorm hit. The staff was amazing moving two large groups and several small groups inside. I was very impressed. Our meal began with Mojitos. The dinner included wonderful lobster, great appetizers, beans, rice, and flan/cheesecake for dessert. Again, the staff was amazing, very... More

We had a great meal of grilled snapper washed down with mojitos. Excellent location when its not raining and you can sit outside and look over the river. We were rained out and had to move inside which was extremely noisy. They have a limited but excellent cigar selection.

sitting in a big terrace with a view to the almendares river mouth is always pleasant, particularly at nights (guess it is too hot to be there at lunch time though). quality and variety of food is good: seefood and fish are excellent ... but portions are rather small or come with no side dish (at least the fish I...

This is one of my favorite spots in Havana. Beautiful view, good food and great service. A bit pricey, but worth it for the location.

This is the Havana version of the fine dining experience. This restaurant is on the edge of Miramar overlooking the ocean. Weather permitting, try to get a table outside on the balcony. The service was impeccable and friendly and almost all the staff spoke English. The drinks were elegantly served and generous and the food was good, although the menu... More

Al entrar a este restaurante, el visitante es sorprendido por la elegancia, buen gusto y las mas nuevas tendencias en la presentacion de los platos y el servicio. El primer atractivo del lugar, amen de la cocina, es el paisaje privilegiado con una vista unica de la desembocadura del Rio Almendares y el Torreon de la Chorrera. La decoracion, concepto y distribucion de los muebles y hasta el mismo ejercicio del arte culinario parecen puestos en funcion de lograr una experiencia exclusiva entre el rio y el mar.
