A visit to Bar Harbor without children meant that my husband and I were able to explore local fare more in depth. Upon reading some trip advisor reviews, we settled on Havana for our dinner. We easily made a reservation via their website. We were immediately greeted with a smile upon our entrance and brought to our seat. We were... More

We were not able to be seated in the restaurant but had a delightful meal at the bar. There was one high top and we snagged it. Though it was the bar, it was still quiet enough for us to have a conversation. I do not eat seafood but there were still plenty of choices. My wife ordered a pinot... More

Havana was recommended by a “friend of a friend” and my wife and I are most appreciative. I have been told that it has been in Bar Harbor for 15 years and has a repeat clientele even if they are in town for a couple of nights. After experiencing one dinner, I can see why. The food is outstanding. My... More

Don't go there with a large group. The menu is full but not huge, which is probably good. It seems that everything they do is good. Being in Bar Harbor - the prices are up there but, there are more expensive places. Being with a large group, many items were ordered. Everyone was well satisfied. The microbrew selection was very...

Havana continues to set the standard for Bar Harbor fine dining. And just as importantly, they have decided to stay open for the winter. As the local prices run, you'll pay for dining at Havana, but it is well worth the premium. Moreover, you can rely on the Havana commitment to sustainability

The food and drinks were really good. I ordered the Paella and it was good, only thing missing was the browned bottom, but seafood was perfectly cooked. The duck was excellent, perfect temperature and flavor was great. The mussels app was yummy too.

Had dinner here with friends while visiting Bar Harbor for the MDI Marathon. Great meal with drinks, appetizers, entrees and desserts... Entrées of Swordfish, Filet, Mole and Paella. None of us were disappointed in our choices. Thank you.

Havana is one of the best in Bar Harbor. It is very pleasant to sit and eat here. It is not noisy and the service is very good. The food is excellent: bread with dip, provolata, filet mignon and tuna.

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.
