When we arrived in Bar Harbor, the hotel we were staying in recommended Havana. We thought it odd that a Cuban restaurant would be recommended....we were in Maine, shouldn't we be eating lobster? But what a great place. The wait staff was very attentive and knowledgeable about the menu. They had great recommendations and the food did not disappoint. The cocktails were wonderful! The only reason I didn't give it a 5 was I thought it was a bit pricey....but hey, we are on vacation, right?

My wife and I loved our meal. Great food, a casual atmosphere and friendly, professional wait staff can be found here. The breads were very tasty by themselves but came with 3 different spreads that were each unique. I had the seafood paella and my wife had their scallops. Both consisted of fresh ingredients from local suppliers and lots of flavors.

What a find! Menu is so enticing we went back for a second visit during our 3 day stay on MDI. First time we ate at the tapas bar which we heard is a separate kitchen. The wild mushroom sauce with scallops is amazing. We tried a number of small plates and each was delicious. Very nice wine menu. Very friendly and informative waitperson.

We had our final dinner of the trip here and could not have made a better choice. The service, wine selection, and meal were all excellent. After 9 days of lobster pounds, bar food, and cafes we wanted something a bit nicer and Havana was perfect. I can recommend the tuna tartare while my wife raved about the pork and beans. We've been coming to Bar Harbor for 20 year and had never been but I think now it will be on our "must" list.

The signature dish is the lobster moqueca and it does not disappoint. Great wine selection. All the details in place for an experience of excellence.
