We have been here before and ate outside and their small-plates menu. I preferred that over their more substantial dinner menu. Food was good but not remarkable. However, the bar and the bartender were top notch. Excellent crafted cocktails and a very nice wine selection...More

Amazing food and menu. Exceptional service. Make a reservation! I had a pisco sour and the halibut special. We also had oysters. All so good! Server was friendly and knowledgeable. Perfect dining experience.

We dine at Havana whenever we are in Bar Harbor. Recently (October 14-16, 2018) for three successive nights. It is superior in every way. The attention to detail is evident in every aspect of the experience. Cannot recommend it highly enough. Fabulous wine-list.

We always have dinner at Havana when we visit Bar Harbor. Wonderful seafood! Frankly, I never get past the seafood, so I can't comment on much else. Try the halibut if available. And be sure to order a caipirinha from Duffy!

Everything about our experience at Havana was terrific. We arrived without reservations and soaking wet from a day of exploring Acadia in the rain. No issues finding us a table. All staff were polite and attentive. The wine selection is vast, and they have craft...More

Description
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.
