Still thinking about the roasted tomato soup I had, it was amazing. Service was great and everything we ordered was delicious. It is a small restaurant so make sure that you make a reservation and because it is so small be patient, you will still need to wait a bit for your table. - soup of the day - Farm... More

Once visited by the Obama family, this small eatery has an interesting selection of meals. Highly recommended is the paella, the flans, not so much. Coffee coated steak was an iffy combination, but I did like the popcorn served with the crabs cakes as "corn texture". Small, noisy, but attentive. The owner will visit your table. Make reservations.

Havana is a excellent restaurant that while pricey, is worth it. Nice, but sometimes forgetful wait staff; well made mixed drinks and a nice atmosphere. Appetizers and entrees are of great quality and prepared beautifully. A meal for two with a couple of cocktails or wine will run you over $100 but to me it was well worth the price.... More

From the moment we stepped in the restaurant, we were welcomed. Everybody was so friendly and helpful. The menu had so many delicious choices, so we were constantly taking bites and sharing plates. The owner walked around and checked on all his guests.

The food was unique and quite good, however, it was a bit overpriced in my opinion. We ordered the crab cakes, seafood paella and the tuna. Crab cakes were delicious and the paella and tuna were good. The paella was definitely a robust seafood flavor, if that's what you like. The atmosphere is what you're paying for here. The staff...

We had a great server. He welcomed us and hoped we enjoyed the experience of tasting his culture. This was a return trip for one of us. While the meal was enjoyable, it wasn't quite to our expectations. The meals were good; although after being on an 8 mile hike on a cool, gray day; I think we were hoping... More

despite the end of the tourist season-the meal was excellent. 8pm reservation put us behind most people-but left us with our own private banquet room (overlooking the fabu wine collection). The service and meal was excellent. Great scallops for appetizer. Swordfish and Seafood Paella we excellent main courses. Fabulous mojitos and martinis-finished with an awesome port flight. Not for the... More

We had a great dinner on the tented patio side of Havana during a recent trip to Bar Harbor. We ordered an assortment of small plates, including the seafood salad, mixed meats and the elote (corn). Everything was very good. If I were to go back, I would just request that the dishes be served at a slower pace. It... More

A visit to Bar Harbor without children meant that my husband and I were able to explore local fare more in depth. Upon reading some trip advisor reviews, we settled on Havana for our dinner. We easily made a reservation via their website. We were immediately greeted with a smile upon our entrance and brought to our seat. We were... More
