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.

Found them in the magazine at the resort and decided to give them a try. Ended up going back there multiple times during the week as the food, service and atmosphere were above and beyond.

Out for a walk and met Rex at Jan-gastro. Hours of great mixology. We went from special Crystal Anejo to mezcal. Had some local craft beer and then succumbed to mojitos which were required in repetition. Had fun learning about tequilas and mezcal. Thanks Rex!

Walked in off the street and were very pleasantly surprised. If you are looking for quality, not the quantity, of local all-inclusives you should come here. Excellent tequila selection, local knowledge, and service. Rex is a wonderful bartender and educator.

Lots of locals and turnover. Right on the busy street so you did have to breath the car emission. Good food, fast service. Clean.

The food is very good, typical local fare but very well prepared by the chef. We go for the wide selection of tequila and overall ambience of the place.

Food is always top notch, lunch and dinner. Never had the same thing twice for dinner, cant say the same for the fish tacos at lunch, have them everytime.. Service is always friendly and professional (thanks Victor, sorry I forgot the tip, stopped back a few days later to leave it for you). One of my can't miss stops when... More

Delicious and well portioned meals, nice shady sidewalk tables. We enjoyed a break from wandering around San Jose. Worth a try :)

We were here for breakfast. They put an extra touch to all the food they serve. There is three different kinds of eggs benedict to choose from. The prices are vey good for the quality. This place is owned by the same person that owns Don Sanchez and The Retro, also great places to eat.
