Opened in October of 2004 by celebrity Chef F. Tadd Chapman, Habaneros Gastro Grill and Tequila bar has developed into one of San Jose del Cabo's most recognized restaurants among locals and tourists alike. Nestled behind a wall of eureka palms between San Jose's hotel zone and historic downtown, Habaneros blends the European style bistro with an eclectic "Mexican Fusion" menu all the while keeping things "Baja" Casual. In the fall of 2006 Tadd was joined by his mother, Christine Chapman to create a family operated restaurant with over 50 years of joint restaurant experience. After 4 years of satisfied clients the opportunity to expand to the adjoining local arose, and thus was born Habaneros Gastro Grill and Tequila Bar.

My husband and I were told to try out this restaurant by some people staying at our same hotel. We were glad we did! We both ordered the ribs. They were cooked in a Tequila baba sauce, very delicious and served with garlic mashed potatoes and mixed vegetables. For an appetizer we ordered the coconut shrimp which I highly recommend!...

We stayed at the Grand Mayan in San Jose del Cabo and one of the employees highly recommended this restaurant. The service was great and the food was fabulous. We liked it so much that we went back for a second time on our one week vacation. The waiter recognized us and came running out to say goodbye to us... More

I found this restaurant through Yelp! and it had great reviews and comments. I am not usually fond of gorgonzola cheese or chipotle seasonings, but there were so many comments about the "chicken voodoo" that I threw caution to the wind and ordered it and was extremely grateful for the suggestion, it was every bit as delicious as everyone said....

This was my favorite restaurant experience during our visit to San Jose del Cabo. The experience was flawless; great cocktails ( I had the cucumber strawberry margarita) and amazing food. I ordered to the chile relleno with arrachea and huitlacoche (corn truffle). Truly an amazing dish, smoky, earthy and creamy. Others in my party ordered the catch of the day... More

This was the best meal! Our party of three had the chicken piazza, habanero shrimp and the steak fajitas. All of the food was excellent. The wait staff was efficient and at the end did a magic trick for us and showed us the secret!

6 of us shared various appetizers and main dishes and desserts. All of it was delicious. Well the mudpie was the favorite and the 2 carrot cake lovers had been spoiled by the carrot cake Sparrow Bakery in Bend, OR makes so we thought that one was only so-so.
