Best fish tacos....

My husband and I had a very pleasant dinner - the Mahi fish tacos were amazing - and Ruth (our waitress) was fantastic! Very sweet and made great menu suggestions. The location is beautiful and we hope to go one more time before we leave.

Our family walked the beach at sunset and ended up at Habaneros! Excellent staff and great drinks. Very cool vibe!

Visited this place for sunset and margaritas and it did not disappoint. The margaritas were very tasty (there's a jalapeño one I highly recommend) and the sunset was even more amazing! Get there early to get your choice of seat because I did notice that there was a wave of people coming in as the sunset time approached.

I have been travelling with my wife three weeks through Costa Rica and the Habaneros was definitiv the Best Restaurant I visited. I am working as a cook and managing several restaurants in Europe and have definitively to say that I can recommend this restaurant to everybody. The food was great and especially I want to mention the perfect service... More

This place was such a good find. Wonderful food, a close to perfect venue for sunset and exceptionally good and friendly service - something we didn't experience everywhere and always appreciate. As with all good places, sad we didn't find it sooner. Thanks to the team at Habernos

Portions are too big and a little expensive but great location and friendly staff. Food was very solid but not worth the price. We went on an off day so maybe we'll go back and rate again.

We ate here twice while in santa teresa. This place is amazing! Great atmosphere, great food, great music and great service. The whole red snapper was the best thing on the menu!! The owner gave everyone at our table a celebratory shot just for coming!

Amazing food! My best friend and I really enjoyed our dinner here and wish we had another chance to try it again. We had the octopus ceviche and the beef quesadillas, both were phenomenal. We also had ginger margaritas which were also delicious. The restaurant is on the beach and provides the perfect spot to watch the sunset. There was... More

This place is a blast. I highly recommend the mango jalapeno margaritas and the Mexican ceviche. The Mexican Tuna Bruchetta was also delicious, and the service was impeccable.

This restaurant had average food but with large portions. Service was poor and they seemed to push the more expensive entrees. You are paying twice as much as you would get anywhere else in town, but the location is beautiful esp for sunset . Had the sea bass , tuna with chipotle sauce, food was not seasoned well.
