Everytime I am in town, I try to get to Habaneros. I believe it is a great place for lunch or an early dinner if you are at the beach with the entire equipment. I simply love this spot, you get a drink, order food (Lobster Taco is a must) and see the sunset in one of the front tables.... More

Habanero was so delicious. We ate there twice during our week stay and were impressed both times. Beach side. Beautiful scenery.

My wife and I came here for a romantic dinner on our honeymoon. We had already had some great dinners in the area before coming here but this place was a step above the rest! We are admittedly pretty critical diners...not because we don't like a lot of things but because we love food and cooking and are always looking... More

At first we we're spooked by the negative reviews but decided to give this a try. We we're glad we did. Mayle, our waitress was friendly and very helpful. I had the chicken diablo tacos and my wife had fish curry style tacos with ceviche for an appetizer. We each also had a cocktail. The ceviche was perfect, tangy, juicy... More

I always have to go back here when I am in Santa Teresa. The food is to die for . ALL! I don't even know where to start with recommendations. The lobster tacos are a favourite, but the grilled fish is excellent, the salads are so good and fresh..I loved the strawberry and feta one in particular. A frozen Margarita... More

We stumbled upon this place on a Sunday night. Food was good, service was poor, but watching the sunset from our table on the beach made it all right.

This place was great! We wanted to try a local Mexican restraunt and this is place to go - right on the sand. Great views and great food. The Nachos were great - my husband still talks about them! Their home made chips and guacamole is a MUST TRY!!!

We loved sitting on the beach to eat and it was definitely a wonderful experience. Unfortunately a storm moved in and forced us under the pavilion but it was a cozy setting as well and our waitress helped us move! The food was scrumptious and we were happy that we went however the bill was a bit steep, you are... More

Very bad service. The quality of the food does not match their prices. Tables and chairs were not appropiate to the space and were uncomfortable . Lousy music.
