Lovely Setting for dinner

We loved the surroundings of the Habaneros Resturant on a lovely hot evening over looking the beach. We had the Mexican Style food and enjoyed our meal in and enjoyable setting.

Beautiful location on the beach. Got take a dip and then relish the most amazing lobster tacos and margaritas. Attached to a hotel but right on the beach. A must visit.

We had dinner outdoors under a palapa, yards from the beach. the food and margaritas were excellent, caliber comparable to that of better American or European restaurants. This place oozes the ambiance you expect of a high-end tropical restaurant. The waitress had a great personality and really knew her stuff. Highly recommended.

My husband and I went to Habaneros at Sunset on our first night in Costa Rica. We loved it. We got there around 530PM and got a table on the beach. At this time, they have 2-for-1 margaritas, so we got two delicious strawberry passionfruit margaritas. Food was great - we got the nachos to start and loved them. I... More

We have been eating at this restaurant for 3 years every December and they never disappoint in service, food or view. It has it all. I have never had a bad meal or drink here. No matter what you order, lunch or dinner, it is excellent!

I live in Los Angeles. So I have plenty of Mexican food already. The chips came with the meal which you know comes before your meal comes. But that's okay please our meal and chips and salsa was delicious. They do not serve Costa Rican beer only corona or dos X. Which I understand being a "Mexican restaurant" but Mexican... More

Visited this establishment with friends at the recommendation of our taxi driver, Jose. The food was fantastic, especially the ceviche and the whole snapper. The ceviche was fresh seafood with the right blend of spices and lime. The snapper was grilled to perfection with seasonings that enhanced the fish even more. The skin was crisp and delicious. Spent about $35... More
