Excellent Again

We first visited this restaurant in May 2014 at the suggestion of our surf instructor. We ordered the lobster tacos. They were so good that we just had to go back in December to have them again. We were not disappointed. They were just as good as we remembered. This time instead of jungle brew we... read more

Great and often spicy food. A lot of good dices to choose from. Went there three times even though it's a bit pricy (for Santa Theresa). Sometimes a bit slow service when in bigger companies (10+). Recommended!

I must say our experience at this restaurant was definitely the best so far in Costa Rica. We had tuna bruschetta as a starter, and as a main we had a whole fish (grilled with white wine) and the shrimp and tuna skewers. Sounds very simple but it was delicious!!! Great combination of flavours and fresh quality products!!! Very friendly... More

Bobbing in the gorgeous water until happy hour, then relaxing for cocktails and dinner while watching the sun set -- what could be more perfect? Highly recommend the "sushi", which is more like a crudo with capers and shaved garlic - delicious! Also the seared tuna. Everything fresh and tasty. We went there twice, the second time for happy hour,... More

My fiancé and I were fortunate enough to find this delicious restaurant on our last night in Costa Rica. It was serendipitous finding this restaurant and could not have been better timing as the restaurant has seating on the beach and we got there just in time to watch the beautiful sunset across the ocean. We ordered the tuna bruschetta... More

If you are looking for a restaurant which serves right on the sand, this is your place in Santa Teresa. Most restaurants are located on the opposite side from the beach. A short drive off the main road leads you to Habaneros - which is a hotel and restaurant. We enjoyed big pitchers of margueritas, and great fresh fish selections.... More

Four of us had dinner at Habaneros in December 2014. The service and atmosphere were great. We ate with our feet in the sand! They had a long list of specialty margaritas. We ordered a pitcher. Yum! The chips & guacamole was delicious, but the star dish of the evening were the lobster tacos. INCREDIBLE. We'd definitely recommend Habaneros to... More

Great location on the beach with the sound of the waves breaking nearby. Really good Mexican food - plus fresh fish etc. Our favourite dinner place in the sand.
