What a tremendous find in BH! The atmosphere, food, service- wow! We had the paella that was amazing. As was the the tuna appetizer. I have been making tres leches cakes for years, and found theirs to be fantastic. A “must go”!

We went to Havana because most of the other restaurants in town have a very similar menu of mostly seafood. We ate in the outside section, the Parilla. The first time we went there it was a five star meal. Our waitperson was friendly, and...More

While Bar Harbor has beautiful views, we found their restaurants to be sadly mundane. Havana was the exception. We are fairly critical of places and happy to say that the food and staff met out expectations. Appetizers: Spring rolls and Mussels and Lobster patty on...More

Every time we come to Bar Harbor, Maine, we eat at least once, and usually two or three times at Havana. The food is always imaginative and excellent, and the owner comes around to personally ask how things are/were. I had the scallops and the...More

We dined here and enjoyed the atmosphere. The bar has many interesting drink specials (best rum and coke I have had in a while). The dining options were unique but several in my party would have liked a little more spice!
