From a perfect paella, with an outstanding amount of saffron, to scallops that were cooked to perfection, I found nothing that was lacking with our entire meal. The owner not only knows his dishes and the eclectic way to present them, but had a wine...More

We had high hopes for Havana as it had been recommended by both our inn and by a friend from home. Granted, our expectations were high, and at most, our meal was average. So we left quite disappointed. I ordered one of the signature dishes...More

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.
