We went to Havana during our stay in Bar Harbor- and loved it so much we went back the very next night! The food was really excellent. Upscale but not overdone- just really authentic and tasty. They have great deals on certain week nights. We lucked out by a half-priced wine night and got an EXCELLENT bottle of Bordeaux for... More

This is one of those places that when you first enter, you know you will have a special evening and you will love it. Havana was recommended to us by several friends who know Bar Harbour well and also by the Innkeeper at the Bass Cottage Inn where we were staying for 5 days. The place is quite quirky in... More

We came to the area for a weekend getaway and for some research. Decided to have our Valentines dinner at Havana. Unfortunately it was the weekend of consecutive blizzards. We had 7:00 reservations but they called me just after 5:00 to inform us that the heater in the dining area had stopped working. They gave us the option of just... More

This was one of the fancier places we found in Bar Harbor. They are creative in their preparations and use high quality ingredients. We all liked our food (group of 8). Staff was professional and friendly. Our kids were probably a little too tired for dinner here and although I'm usually willing to take them everywhere it might have been... More

Went to Havana with my family. Great atmosphere, and food. Staff was very accommodating, and even the owner came to our table and struck up a conversation. Great place to come back to. Nice menu variety, and delicious too.

Lots of restaurants in Bar Harbor are focused on tourism: in and out for a quick bite to eat. Lobster, clam chowder and blueberry pie. Havana is unique in many ways: table cloth-style restaurant, waiters with knowledge about the best wine to compliment the dish, unique flavors and not the cookie cutter menu. At Havana you can easily spend an... More

My friend and I expected to love our meal here... but we were disappointed. First, the good: The restaurant was cozy on a winter evening and very inviting. The service was wonderful- our waitress made suggestions and brought us fresh bread and refilled our water glasses without being asked. The dinners were a disappointment. My paella was over cooked and... More

We recently spent 10 days in Bar Harbor and went to a different restaurant every night, but were not able to match the excellence of Havanna. We chose the less formal outside seating area and ordered the fish of the day - which was by far the best fish dish I have had in years. The service was personable and... More

We ate dinner on the parrilla side. We enjoyed this unique restaurant since it's not the typical fare in Bar Harbor. Some dishes were more successful than others, but everything was quite tasty. This place is a welcome change from the typical tourist restaurants.
