Top choice Latin American

in Bar Harbor

First things first: order a refreshing mojito or caipirinha. Then you can take your time with the menu and the epic global wine list. Havana puts a Latin spin on dishes that highlight local produce, and the kitchen output is accomplished. Signature dishes include seafood paella, braised lamb shank and a deliciously light lobster moqueca (Brazilian-style stew with coconut milk).

Reservations recommended. Havana's sister restaurant is a more casual option a few doors down: the lively no-booking tapas bar and grill known as the parrilla.
