Food=Amazing, Noise Level=High
Food was amazing! Apalachicola Oysters appetizer was perfectly chilled, delicate and a refreshing burst of goodness.
The pan seared gulf snapper was cooked to perfection and was bursting with flavour. My boyfriend is a shrimp and grits connoisseur and he would rank that dish 7 out of 10. It was really good, just not the best he's ever had. Gouda soufflé muffins are mind-blowing. Staff was charming and well-timed with everything.
It was pretty noisy during our dinner. We are a young couple and love an energetic scene, but it was hard to have a conversation in the dining room due to loud group hanging out at the bar. Overall, we are looking forward to going back, trying other dishes and maybe dinning on the beautiful veranda next time.

We were disappointed to learn no Grey Goose or Crown Royal was available ...the first things we ordered! That set up an uneasy feeling immediately. There is a liquor store less than 3 miles away!
The menu misleading-fish & chips with pompano. Grouper was the fish which was delicious. Crab claws- we thought blue crab claws, however it was small stone crabs which were difficult to eat, and were overcooked.
We all made fun of the chicken biscuit @ $15.00! It must be heck of a biscuit....we were not willing to try.
The desserts were awful -lemon pie cookie, peach buckle.
Our entrees were very good, fillet, fish and chips, duck.
We are local. All in all we will be back. It does take time to sort things in a new restaurant. Best of luck!

Excellent on all levels!
My friend and I had the most amazing dining experience. The restaurant feels very Havanaish with the beautiful airy design. Everything that we had - onion soup (the restaurant makes all of their own stocks - fish, chicken, beef), H20 melon salad and pan seared snapper was beyond a culinary delight. The service was wonderful, never rushed or neglected, loved Wade our waiter who new the menu as though he had been there forever. Quite impressive since the restaurant just opened a month ago. The wine list great, but need to mention their own bottled water, unbelievably refreshing! We wanted to take a gallon home! We will be back!

Loved our experience at Havana!
All around great evening at Havana. Our food was delicious, the view was amazing, and our waiter was outstanding. We will definitely go back! The H2O salad was a highlight as well as the Chocolate Bacon Bomb.

First time dining at Havana Beach and found the atmosphere quite vibrant and enjoyable. Lots of activity at the bar so if your looking for a quiet place to dine this might not be your first choice. Menu was typical for the Florida coast., nothing unusual but very good. $$$. Enjoyed the piano player but he was difficult to hear over the crowd.

Fine Dining at the beach!
Excellent food, with perfect service, in a relaxed but elegant atmosphere.

Great bar scene
Wife and I had reservations but upon arrival we found two openings at the bar. So we had some drinks and ate there. Food was very good and drinks were as well. Crowded with a great bar scene. Rooftop bar was not yet open so we stayed in the main bar.

Someplace out of the Norm
Havana Beach is definitely something that you want to try. It has a quaint atmosphere in the Beautiful Hotel. I would recommend outdoor seating if available, then you can view the people walking through the cobble stoned streets of Rosemary Beach. The Food was excellent! We were served Red Snapper and Bone In Fillet, both were cooked as requested and tender and juicy. I actually make it a point to eat at every restaurant on 30-A and I will be going back to Havana Beach. Lastly, the prices at Havana Beach were quite reasonable for all that I received. Two glasses of Wine, Snapper & Fillet and Salads and we got out for about $110.

This restaurant is beautiful!
The service was very good!
This is a wonderful addition to the dining/bar choices in South Walton.
Parking can be a nightmare - just be prepared. It is worth it!
9/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
What a place, what a view, what a meal! Needless to say, we will go back.
9/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
The menu looks simplistic, but the chef-de-cuisine knows how to give you a culinary experience. This has become a must stop for me when I visit the area. This restaurant rates 6 stars.

A friend suggested we try
A friend suggested we try Havanna Beach at The Pearl, and we loved it! The food was outstanding, we suggest trying their bacon appetizer. It was delicious! The service was great, the ambiance was great and the food was great.

fantastic experience: great service
We had a wonderful experience at Havana Beach Restaurant. I loved the Cuban ambiance. The food and service were excellent and they even created a beautiful birthday cake for our group with candles. The shrimp and grits were delicious. The piano player was very good and the music wasn't too loud to carry on conversation! I will definitely return!

Delicious Food and Great Service!
Our group of four had a great experience at Havana Beach. Kevin, our server, was very attentive and friendly and helpful with our selections. Bacon lovers will find something to enjoy for every course...even dessert. Everything was fresh and attractively plated, but most importantly, simply delicious. The Shrimp & Grits are probably the best I have ever had. The wine list was reasonable and offered a lot of variety. We will be back next time we're in Rosemary Beach!

Great addition to Rosemary....
The wife and I went last week on a evening away from the little one and we really enjoyed ourselves. We had a couple drinks at the bar before dinner. The bar was great. We had a couple apps with friends. The bacon app in particular was amazing. For dinner the pop overs are a nice touch. The wife loved her short ribs and I had the pork chop. Pork can be tricky to cook and they definitely nailed it. Very tender and moist. For dessert the bacon peanut butter bomb was... well... the bomb.
One thing I noticed was opentable shows little availability from 6:30-8:30, but during that time while at the bar the dining room was rather empty. It was much busier the later it got. Just kind of odd.

Upscale dinning in resort
Upscale dinning in resort community. Excellent food and service, very good wine selection but pricey. Would have given it five stars but ordered red snapper and it was served with the skin up and did not taste fresh. Waiter did offer to take it back.

Great Addition to Rosemary
Havana is a great addition to the 30A food scene. The food is very good and the bar scene seems to draw its young crowd from Destin to PCB. People watching is a great way to spend your time waiting for a table.

Just the right elegance
Located in the Pearl hotel and only open since August, the restaurant is well on the way to becoming the best place in town. We are new to Rosemary beach so don't have a lot of comparisons in the area. Nonetheless the food and atmosphere ranks with what we enjoy in Atlanta
10/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
We enjoy eating light and enjoying lots of variety. We shared 3 different appetizers and left comfortable and not over stuffed. Our waiter was happy to oblige us and made great suggestions. Wanted to try the shrimp and grits, but was too full. We will do that next time.
10/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
This new restaurant is new in a new hotel in Rosemary Beach Florida. The atmosphere is clubby and the bar is traditional which I love. Service was excellent and very knowledgeable
Everyone in our party loved the dinner. I had Lamb chops and they were excellent. The shrimp and grits were outstanding.
The best part is that they take reservations!!.

Great food in a great restaurant
The pearl is a fantastic gem in rosemary beach. The food is fantastic and is delivered with 5 star service.
We will come back many more times

Enchanted Old Havana
Well, first of all our party arrived late and in waves. That would never make things easy; however, our waiter, Kevin, took it all in stride. He seemed to enjoy the "challenges" our group presented and was very knowledgable of the menu and wine list. The atmosphere is truly enchanting as it really transports you to a different time and place. The hotel is beautiful of course. I loved it!

A gem in Rosemary Beach
Great place for an anniversary, date or small gathering. The ambiance is classic contemporary, and the staff is eager and well informed. We had the clam and pommes frites appetizer, wedge salad, bone in fillet mignon, sea bass, and for dessert the peanut bacon bomb....WOW! everything was top notch.

Excellent Food and Atmosphere
We have dined here three times now and each time has been fantastic. The Smoked Salmon appetizer is amazing and all of our main dinner courses have been phenomenal. The Shrimp and Grits and Snapper especially shine. The wait staff is always attentive and the Bar has a great choice of cocktails, wine, beers, and the like. We will go back everytime we visit 30-A. Be sure and have drinks in the upstairs bar when weather permits. Great way to start the evening.

Don't get seated next to the piano.
Better to ask for a table in the other room. Piano selections not to everyone's liking and much too loud when seated right next to it!
I asked for a vegetarian plate to be composed of three sides listed on the menu. Two of the ones I ordered came together in their little dishes on a plate - the third straggled along later. Not the most attractive presentation.
Everyone else loved their dinners - mashed potatoes that came with the lamb a particular hit.

Rosemary Beach Gem
Havana Beach is the newest restaurant addition at Rosemary Beach, and it's a great one. Make sure to enjoy some of their signature cocktails.
