Inspired by El Floridita, Hemingway’s favorite haunt in old-town Havana, The Pearl Hotel's signature restaurant offers a comfortable, communal ambiance full of life and steeped in the joy of living, eating and drinking well.

Enjoy Gulf Coast Americana cuisine with Caribbean influences that is also seamlessly merged with a contemporary local philosophy as meats, fish and produce are harvested from family-owned, small-producers on the Gulf Coast.

Papa Hemingway himself would’ve loved the hand-carved mahogany bar, the perfect spot for enjoying an expertly muddled cocktail, craft beer or fine wine after a day of running with the bulls or battling the mighty marlin.

Havana Beach Bar & Grill is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner daily. Dinner reservations are recommended.

Food was outstanding! Ordered the Havana Salad, Gambas al Ajillo, Spanish Octopus, and Sous Vide Wagyu Beef with the short rib option...can’t stress enough how delicious everything was. The Old Fashion was one of the best my husband has ever had and he has has plenty! Opt for the Angel Envy bourbon if available. The ambiance was cool and eclectic. There was live piano music since it was a Friday (available Thu-Sun). Lastly our server was well informed with great advice and super nice. He even comp’ed our dessert because he found out we evacuated SC due to Hurricane Florence. We’ll be back!

Food was excellent. The kitchen was extremely backed up and it took an hour to get our food. It was worth the wait however. The wait staff was apologetic. I think we went on an off night. I'd recommend going.

Always enjoy our visits to Havana Beach Grill. The atmosphere is among the best on 30A. The food is creatively coastal but somewhat limited. They have an expensive cocktail menu and their wine list is well curated but pricier than others on 30A. Superb service is a given. Enjoyed the piano bar while sitting inside, as we normally sit on the patio, outside. One of our favorites whenever we visit Rosemary Beach.

My husband, friend, and I tried Havana Beach at The Pearl based on recommendations. Wow! Are we glad we listened as it did not disappoint. We had a wonderful table outside and since we were there during an off week and the reservation was at 6, we enjoyed the area to ourselves for a good hour. My friend and I had the Wagyu filet and changed up the sides based on our preference and our server's suggestion. My husband had the special. The food was spectacular! Even more impressive was our server, Summer. She was outstanding from the very beginning. She was very attentive but not over the top too much, extremely friendly, helpful and efficient. She had an excellent wine recommendation which paired with our entrees perfectly. Not to mention she sold us on the cucumber mint martini which was the perfect way to start the evening. We all said that Summer made the experience top notch. If you appreciate great service as much as we do then definitely ask for her when you make a reservation.

Great food, friendly, professional staff. Very loud and energetic dining room. The live music was so loud it was hard to hear table conversation. Wine prices are very high, around 200% markup and pay attention to the vintage delivered to your table, it may be wrong.

Staff is very energized with new #1 ranking for Florida hotels, improved culinary quality of resturant, etc. But, on this most recent visit, the new menu seemed limited in appeal (at least to us). And getting our food out of the kitchen to to our table took a LONG time (over an hour), which was very frustrating. We have eaten at this restaurant on multiple occasions, and this has occurred numerous times. In some cases, the manager came over and apologized. In several others - not a peep.

Overall, the place does seem to have improved. But, at least basd on our experiences there, it has difficulty with getting food out on time. And similar awkwardness and difficulty in addressing it with its customers.

We were greeted warmly and seated promptly upon our arrival at Havana Beach. We were given the window seat we had requested, which had a view of the bustling outdoor area surrounding the restaurant with the sea in the far distance. Denis, our waiter, was efficient and personal, providing outstanding service. We enjoyed a bottle of wine with our meal, which was iced at tableside and served throughout our dinner. Our shared appetizer, the Market Toast, was the star of the meal . . . creative and delicious! Our entrees (the grouper, the octopus, and the scallops) were well plated and very good. I would say the grouper was somewhat underwhelming in terms of flavor, however. We finished our meal by sharing the toffee pudding for dessert, a perfect and delicious conclusion. Denis brought us crispy rice treats wrapped in individual bags as take-home snacks, which was a nice touch as well. They, too, were very good. The only negative aspect of the evening occurred when we returned to the restaurant to finish drinks that we had ordered at the rooftop bar after our meal. A lightning storm required the evacuation of the rooftop area shortly after our after-dinner drinks were served, and we were told by the staff upstairs that we could sit in the indoor bar area inside the restaurant downstairs to finish our drinks. We had read online that there was a piano bar-type area there. The host and manager, both of whom had been quite friendly to us earlier, looked at us like we were making an inappropriate and odd request. They let us enter, but they made us feel somewhat stupid, explaining that there was a piano in the bar but that no one was playing, making their previous friendly treatment of us appear disingenuous. It was disappointing to end our evening on a negative note; we had enjoyed an excellent meal and a positive experience until that point.

We made this reservation far in advance because we knew they would be busy. We've been to this restaurant many times. I requested a table in the main dining room as opposed to the back room behind a wall near the busy kitchen. I also called to confirm my reservation and the person who answered the phone said he had a lovely table for my group in the window of main dining room as requested. Upon arrival the hostess escorted us to the very back to the worst table in the restaurant in my opinion, directly by the kitchen busing station. We passed by a lovely table for four in the main dining room in the window that was vacant. At that point I asked the hostess why we couldn't have the table we requested. She strangely said, "I was going to give the table to another group but they had no special request and since you did I guess you can have it". Huh? And when I was questioning her about the mix up she said "you need to calm down". Who says that to the customer? Maybe she was frazzled but at a restaurant of this caliber the hostess needs to keep it together. The bottom line was they were not organized which I don't think should be taken out on the customer.

Horrible horrible service. Had reservations and they say they “text” you when your table is ready. Well they obviously forgot bc 30 mins later when we checked they said they sent one (my butt they did). Drinks at rooftop were horrible and took FOREVER!! Food me-ogre. Pretty views and fun company but over priced for what you get. Save your money.

Extremely overpriced. Best example is that we got a side of snap peas for our daughter and it was $12, more than her entire kids meal. And they came out very late, after everyone had gotten their food.

Nice service. They accommodated a time change in our reservation and seating requests.

Excited to try this recommended place however the experience was a total letdown. Heavy rains came just as we sat upstairs so we made reservations for the downstairs restaurant. We were sat in back room at a two top table with Summer as our waiter. Took well over an hour to receive our lamb and filet dinners, both ordered medium, and both were under cooked. Since we were starving we ate what we could. Summer's friendly and apologetic attitude were appreciated, but kitchen needs to be able to put out tickets faster than 60-75 minute ticket times.

We told the restaurant at the time of booking the reservations that my husband has a shellfish allergy. After being seated and ordering we confirmed again the food allergy with the waiter. Then one of the waiters assistance precedes to deliver a free individual appetizer to each of us at the table. I asked then if there was shellfish in it just to be sure and he said no it was some kind of salad. For some reason I said wait and let me see so I tasted it and sure enough it had shrimp in it. We told the waiter and he was very apologetic but we explained how tragic it would have been if my husband had eaten it. That was an unacceptable mistake. We were very upset and troubled by the mistake. No measure was taken by the management to make good on this major blunder.

Food was just ok and should be outstanding for the price. I’ve had better lamb chops 100’s of times that was much better - they auctioned off our food - should know who ordered what for that kind of price. They stacked plates on the table - I could go on and on. It was like kids newly hired for the high season. Happy to share more. John 619-577-2120
