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.

We had a wonderful dinner after a long day of golfing. We were accommodated outside on the terrace, large party. Amazing friendly service, good cocktails, superb food, and again-the atmosphere was sublime. A wide array of dishes.

While in San Jose del Cabo we ate here 3 times. . each time it was great. We stayed at an all inclusive hotel and and was not pleased with the Mexican food there. So we ventured out and found Habanero's and were more than pleased. So we returned 3 times on this trip. Would highly recommend this place. .

This place has been around forever, and the food is very consistent. The owners are Canadian and really make sure everything is prepared correctly and & its always very fresh. Great iced tea, guacamole, & shrimp tacos! Prices are fair & they have really good specials at night for dinner.

We try to go at least once a month while we are down Nov to April. The food has always been great and has improved with the new owners. The Chef and his wife are perfect hosts and we have never been disappointed. Decent wine lise and great mixed drinks. The wait staff are attentive and knowledgeable.

We've been to Habanero's on every visit to Cabo del San Jose since a hotel employee recommended it on our first trip here. Food is great, the frazzled shrimp are not to be missed. Patio seating makes the meal, but you may have to wait for a spot outside as it is often hopping in the evenings.

Grilled calamari was terrific and the catch of the day was outstanding. The best quality food for the price on our visit. Our waiter Jose was very attentive and helpful with the menu. Wonderful place to dine away from the hotel zone.

We sat up at the bar on a super busy Sunday night. The bartender still managed friendly and enthusiastic service. The Caesar salad and fried Calamari were perfectly executed. I will order both in the future. The Poblano Gorgonzola soup and the tortilla soup were good. Carrot cake sadly wasn't fresh tasting. They were way too busy to mention it... More
