Two for one margaritas for happy hour! Will definitely... More

Habaneros is a restaurant and bar directly at the beach, which offers a marvelous view on the ocean, making it a perfect place for a sunset dinner. The outside tables are a tad too low to dine really comfortably but that is more than offset by the view and the astonishing quality of the food, especially considering the very moderate... More

We walked down the beach to Habneros from Mal Pais. Habaneros was our destination, and we were greatly impressed. We made it for the sunset, and got Happy Hour margaritas! Sitting at our table on the beach and watching the sun set was truly relaxing.

We stopped here after walking along the beach and craving a margarita. The service was better than average for that area and the fish tacos were amazing. They have a unique margarita menu and such a great beach-dining atmosphere. Definitely one of the highlight lunches of our trip.

Tables in the sand, great food, live music, wonderful views. My wife enjoyed the lobster tacos and I had the whole fish (grouper) really nicely done. Sangria at sunset is a really good idea.

During out week in Santa Teresa, my husband and I ate at many restaurants. This is the only one that I have rated at less than 4 stars. The location right on the beach is fabulous, but the positives really end here. The first night we tried to eat here, we were turned away because apparently someone had rented out... More

Located by the sea on the beach so very cosy and relaxed. The margaritas were good but the food a bit plain. We ordered one spicy dish that wasn't spicy at all and the place is called Habanero... Overpriced but most likely cause of the location/view.

I can't speak to the food at Habaneros (other than it being incredibly expensive) but I can say that the view at sunset is amazing! My husband and I sat on the beach at sunset and had a cocktail at Habaneros and I can say it was so great - a must see spot. I had the Tamarind+Ginger margarita and... More
