You’ll be hard pressed to find a better restaurant view in Havana than the one at Vistamar. Located in the courtyard of an elegant Miramar mansion, you are so close to the Caribbean Sea it almost feels as if you’re sitting in the water. The grilled seafood is sublime and there is also an interesting – and reasonably priced – wine list.
