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.

Very good food

Have to try their chicken voodoo. Very very good. My wife had shrimp fajitas which were also very good. Their hot salsa is very hot (good). Very friendly staff.

Dishes are extraordinary. Its hard to describe something so eclectic! A bit on the pricey side, but worth the splurge at least once.

wonderful, filling and fresh breakfast. The breakfast with coffee or juice was under $10 per person. Lots of locals, which is always a good sign. Great service with full bar. They have daily specials and happy hours during the week. Worth checking out.

Ate at Habaneros twice during our recent trip to Cabo. Best selection of tequila anywhere. The fresh fruit Margareta's are superb. Fresh fish and fajitas are excellent but make sure and save room for the home made key lime pie-- best anywhere!

We visited Habanero for dinner two days ago. The fried Mancego was delicious, the spaghetti see food very rich and the Chicken voodo very tasty. The service was fast and yet our waiter was very attentive and professional. At the end of the dinner he showed my kids some magic tricks. We had a lovely night!!

We went to Habanero's on the recommendation of a security guard at Grand Mayan. Wow! From the special Jalapeño Margarita to the daily special Chile Relleno, everything was great. The chips were thick and fresh, guacamole and interesting salsa selection were delicious. The tortilla soup was top notch!!! Voodoo Chicken was spicy goodness filled with cheese! The fajitas were enormous... More

Finally found an air conditioned restaurant in August! Took the kids for dinner and was pleasantly surprized. Limited menu items but good food and good service.

I had really great food here and it seems To be popular but the wait staff is slow and very unresponsive. It's been three times in a row now so it's probably more then bad luck.. The place is cute, food is ok and I like the patio

We needed a change from the all inclusive holiday and tried this restaurant... Well glad we did - excellent! A small group of us enjoyed the scallops (must have) pork tenderloins and steaks. Service from Caesar was excellent and all our meals were cooked perfectly. We enjoyed sitting outside and were even entertained by the locals (Bulls) strolling up the... More
