While I agree with all of the positive reviews about food and service, our meal was VERY memorable because of the indoor temperature the night we were there. We had been looking forward to a visit to Havanna when the crowds would have thinned a...More

Eclectic interesting choices with a cuban flair. Waiters are supremely knowledgeable and helpful with dinner selections. Food was so unusual and delicious Loved everything we ate if a special is recommended, then go for it! You can't go wrong. Also pretty and romantic.

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

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.
