I wanted a quiet and leisurely dining experience with excellent food and service---and we found it here. Everything was wonderful, but esp recommend the seafood paella and the quattro leche cake.

Went to Havana based on an article I saw, but it did not live up to the hype. The food was not bad, but for the price, it was not that great either. On the plus side - I do like to drink a Caipirinha...More

Tried to get into Havana on a Wednesday night and no tables available for 2 hours so went next door to their more casual outdoor spot, the Parrilla, where we waited ~40 minutes for a table. Everything was delicious and worth the wait! The oysters...More

Great restaurant! We went there because we heard the Obamas had eaten there and were not disappointed. There is a wide selection of dishes, including tasty vegetarian options. Service was excellent. It is a bit pricey, but definitely worth a visit.

We started with some nice cocktails. Then our starters arrived. One of the starters the provoleta was unedible, it was so salt, after one bite my taste was gone for hours! When the entrees arrived we got a wrong dish, so one of us had...More

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.
