“beautiful restaurant on the beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2014

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.

“Amazing Service and Great Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2014

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. There was live music and you're right on the beach. We had tasty drinks. We told the server there were vegans in the group and she immediately said she has something amazing for us and brought us the best vegan burritos we've had in a long time. More vegan options on the menu would be great! Thanks!

“Tasty!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2014

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. I would def. go back here again. 100% Recommended!

“Go There!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2014

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 including local brewed beer. The outdoor dining only enhanced the experience. The fish is brought in each day from local fishermen, but Gary's artisty in the kitchen made the meals memorable. It was so good, that we had to go meet him and give thanks…... and then returned the next day.
