Rio Mar was highly recommended by a local for my special occasion dinner and it did not disappoint. I was seated on the patio and enjoyed the beautiful, breezy view of the water, along with the incredible food and attentive service. The place got packed as the evening wore on so, a reservation is highly recommended!

The food, atmosphere, service is all extremely well done. The one big issue I have with this place is the price vs value. If budget is not an issue, you will enjoy it. For me, I can eat better for less. But that is my opinion. You will not leave disappointed.

Loved the outdoor seating here. It's very chic and the service was good. I did have to do some "clarifying" with the bar over my daiquiri (learning in the process that if I wanted a non-frozen daiquiri, I needed to say "traditional.")

One of my two favorites in Havana. After two visits to the city, I finally got to Rio Mar and I am very glad. A bit out of the way but worth the trip. Let the host guide you regarding the food - he won't mislead you.

We arrived at the restaurant without a reservation....big mistake! They were able to accommodate my party of 3 (barely). The service was great and the food was even better! I read a 1-star review complaint about the service....first off, you're in Cuba on "Cuban time". If you're worried about the speed of your service, stay home!! That being said, we... More

Many restaurants in Havana try real hard to get things right. This place has figured it out. The location, the food, the service, the view, even the bathroom facilities were all up to par. The vegetarian in our group had nice choices for lunch.

We went here in March and we had a great time here. Very upscale which is pretty uncommon in Cuba from what we saw. The food was good. Wasn't amazing but I have the Rio Mar combo plate which had a ton of different seafood's and it was only 25 Dollars.

The Rio Mar is a charming small restaurant on the edge of a lagoon formed where the river meets the ocean. It was a lovely place for lunch. the food was good by any standard and the service was friendly and professional. It is probably a 15 minute drive west along the water from Old Havana. It is a great... More

The views are great and so was the seafood. The staff was so friendly and accommodating. It was the best meal we had in Cuba!

Rio Mar is a special kind of awful. For the TL;DR variety: selective service, sub-par food quality for the price point, overall mismanaged. Down a pot-hole infested street with little to no street lights behind an obscure building is what would be the appearance of a relatively nice downtown Manhattan restaurant with a gorgeous view. The ambiance may be the... More

Al entrar a este restaurante, el visitante es sorprendido por la elegancia, buen gusto y las mas nuevas tendencias en la presentacion de los platos y el servicio. El primer atractivo del lugar, amen de la cocina, es el paisaje privilegiado con una vista unica de la desembocadura del Rio Almendares y el Torreon de la Chorrera. La decoracion, concepto y distribucion de los muebles y hasta el mismo ejercicio del arte culinario parecen puestos en funcion de lograr una experiencia exclusiva entre el rio y el mar.
