Amazing food served literally ON a tropical beach. Amazing. Possibly the best soup I've had in my life.

this is the only restaurant we found that was right on the beach. it is part of a gorgeous hotel but open to the public. it's a little expensive (and only take cash as most places) but well worth it. the lobster tacos were fantastic and the presentation was beautiful.

This is one of the best restaurants in Santa Teresa in terms of service. We had a large group (15 people) in town for a week and service around town was nothing to write home about. At Habaneros, however, they had our table waiting for us and numerous girls serving us in a very professional manner. The ambiance is amazing.... More

Habaneros is a restaurant that is right on the beach and it's so pretty! The food is fantastic as are the drinks. It's mexican cuisine and you get all these sides and fresh salsas. The margaritas are DELICIOUS! Omg they tasted so so good. I loved eating here but be aware these are NY prices and they only take cash.... More

Just returned from Mal Pais and the food experience was remarkable, but Habaneros stands out as one of the best. We were a crew of 10 from Georgia, aged 50 going on 20. Hadar, Bri and Vanessa took care of us while chef Gary prepared the freshest lobster, fish tacos, grilled tuna, and various appetizers while we enjoyed cold refreshments... More

Very popular spot on the beach if you're starving and your pockets are deep. Lobster tacos and frozen tamarind-ginger margaritas!

If you want to sit on the sand and enjoy margaritas and the best lobster tacos ever, then Habaneros is the place for you. The service is second to none and the setting is simply divine. A must try if you are in ST

I found this place to be with good but rather expensive food. The annoying factor was a loud american guitar player singing in the background while the patrons are dining. Something to be said about turning down the volume to let the customers enjoy the conversation. Americans go to Costa Rica, especially to Santa Teresa area for a change of... More
