We went to Habanero's for a farewell meal and we weren't disappointed. The restaurant itself has all the charm you would expect from a small Caribbean island. The seating is predominantly outdoor and there is a gentle breeze to keep the humidity down. It's decorated with local art, putting money back into the community, and painted in a bright, friendly colour scheme.
We ordered a bottle of white wine before the food and the waitress offered suggestions on which wine to have, which is a first for me out here. We shared two starters between us and were not disappointed at what was presented at our table. I say 'presented' because the presentation was sublime. An array of colours and smells that hit every note. It wasn't till we decided to taste our food that we really got the message. Flavours exploded on the tongue and concoctions I hadn't ever thought of, exploded on my palate. And that was just the starters.
When the main meals arrived, our eyes pooped out of our sockets. Sizzling skillets with fragrant squewers of delight, fresh cooked crab claws, the most tender meats I had seen in ages, vegetables and sides laid out to perfection and the attention to detail was brilliant. So that’s where my saliva glands are.
Whoever thought up these creations, whoever cooked them, are brilliant and I'm in awe. Every mouthful was as good as the previous, if not better and none of us said no when asked if we'd like to try each others. The waiting staff were very attentive and they were there immediately if we needed anything.
The only negative I can say about the restaurant……..my stomach wasn't big enough to fit all the food in. Who says that when you pay a little extra for fine food, you get less on your plate? Whoever it was, they were wrong by a long margin.
Habanero's…Treat yourself, sit down, relax, have the meal of your lives and enjoy. By far the best food on the island.
And don't forget to try the key lime pie for dessert. Words cannot describe that so I'll let you try it for yourself.
I'll definitely be back.
