After a few days of delicious lobster, we were ready for a change. Havana exceeded our expectations! We shared the fried provolone with chorizo starter and it was delicious with just the right amount of heat. The mojitos more than stood up to the challenge....More

We sat outside in their tapas bar portion of the restaurant. The menu was considerable smaller but also less expensive. We ordered the scallops, and the fingerling potatoes. Both were very good but the tres leches was fantastic. Definitely save room for the that one.

American fine dining with a Latin flair. Havana has an elegant modern atmosphere, an extensive wine list, knowledgeable staff and a sophisticated menu. Seafood, vegetarian and meat dishes are flavored with intelligence and respect and change weekly, sometimes daily. Havana is located in downtown Bar Harbor, just a short stroll up Main Street.
