Fodor's Expert Review Havana

$$$$ Bar Harbor Dinner Fodor's Choice

A lively yet intimate spot on the edge of downtown, Havana serves Latin-inspired dishes like seafood paella and panko-crusted lamb chops with lemon mojo sauce paired with robust wines from an award-winning, passionately curated 73-page wine list. In season, have a bite on “the Parrilla,” the informal no-reservations patio (separate menu); year-round, dine in a pleasant indoor space with a modern aesthetic, featuring clean lines and cheery colors. The menu has staples yet varies with the seasons. Lamb chops might come with cheesy grits and grilled veggies in July and sweet potato puree and ratatouille in September. Seafood paella piles in lobster, mussels, shrimp, scallops, chorizo, tomatoes, peppers, and smoked chicken with saffron rice. You'd do well to finish off your meal with a serving of affogato made with Mount Desert Island vanilla-bean ice cream and something from the also-extensive “Cigars & After Dinner Drinks” menu (yes, cigars are to go).
