A word from Havana
Havana is American fine dining with a Latin flair, great atmosphere, extensive wine list, knowledgeable staff and sophisticated menu. Since opening ten years ago, we have been committed to serving local and organic meats, produce and seafood. We search out New England farmers and fisherfolk to purchase products that are not only great tasting, but great for the environment and local economy. Seafood, lamb 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.Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "My wife and I returned to Havana after visiting about 11 years ago. The character of the restaurant is quite comfortable. The appetizers were very good, but the dinner was just average. I didn't find the food overly flavorful or special. We enjoyed the meal, but it wasn't the stand out meal in Bar Harbor."

  • "Always fresh, always good. Special touches and the largest wine list I have ever seen make this gem unique."

  • "We had dinner this week at Havana and it was really good. They brought us a sample of the mushroom soup to see if we would like it--we did and then we had the swordfish with a black bean sauce which was delicious. As usual the breat was terrific. Can't wait to get back there next summer."

  • "We were seated immediately at the time of our reservation. Our waiter was timely with almost everything, and made several good recommendations. The food was outstanding and I was surprised at how large of a portion of the paella I received. The ambiance was a nice combination of formal and casual. I definitely recommend the crab cakes."

  • "First, definitely order the Paella. It you are worried about having to pick apart messy shrimp with your fingers, don't. The shrimp is already cleaned. Second, I worked for a decade in high-end fine dining. Not only was the food over-the-moon delicious, but (and this is a first for me) I didn't have even one critique about the service. Everything was correct, timed well, and placed well. Not to mention, the owner went around greeted the tables and asked how everything was. It was a busy night, but we never felt rushed and the service felt relaxed."

  • "This gem in Bar Harbor is on the "edge" of downtown but well worth the short walk. We had a tremendous dinner for 2 on Friday night and decided to return 2 days later to celebrate my 50th birthday with a group of 8. The service was impeccable, food is interesting and amazing and the wine list is nothing short of spectacular. The owner, Michael, is charming and welcoming. Despite the high level of cuisine and the wine list, it is not pretentious but very warm and inviting. I can't wait to return to Bar Harbor just to dine here again. Hands down, 5 stars."

  • "I come to Bar Harbor to go hiking every fall. I came here last year and the food was very solid so I made a return visit and was not disappointed. I really like their wine list and enjoyed a 3 glass sampler. The breads are wonderful along with the bean spread. I had the kale and chorizo soup which had a great flavor but just wish it was a little more "hearty" with more texture. The rack of lamb medium rare was tender and juicy and came with a butternut squash and quinoa side. The ambiance is also very nice and I hope to return next year!"

  • "A creative menu with some hits and some misses. The live flamenco guitar music at the bar is superb and sets the mood. try the mojito. The noisy kids at multiple tables detracted from this dining experience in the back room. as others have noted, the rice with the chicken was not cooked and was hard and inedible. would give this place another try as I suspect it is the best that Bar Harbor has to offer"

  • "The appetizers were great, but the entrees were mediocre, especially for the price. We ha a reservation and were seated 20 minutes after our scheduled time. For the inconvenience we were given the spring rolls and they were yummy! The scallops were incredibly spicy and the paella was mediocre. The crab cakes were great!"
