Fantastic food with impeccable service to match! The paella was wonderful, the freshness of the seafood reminded us of our time spent along the Algarve in Portugal. Vibrant and friendly, Havana is a restaurant you would not expect to find in Northern Maine. How happy...More

I keep thinking about the Chorizo dish and how it was one of the best dishes I can remember in long time. A memorable meal deserving of a townies recommendation.

Great restaurant with delicious food - choice of 'formal' restaurant inside or more casual outside bar and restaurant. Michael and team consistently do a great job and offer a great variety of specials.

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.
