We found the food to be authentic and good. It was a bit crowded but that didn't prevent quick service.

We had dinner here our first night in San Jose. The service was great and the food was excellent. I had shrimp fajitas and they were delicious. We decided to go back our last night in town and they were having an anniversary celebration and had a special menu and the shrimp dinner was just great. There were 3 different... More

We chose to visit Habanero's our first night in SJD - as it was close to our resort (walking distance even) and recommended by a few friends. Service, food & atmosphere (it's a nice patio for being part of a strip mall) were good - tamarind margaritas were amazing! Maybe it was that first sip of a truly Mexican margarita... More

We ate here twice during our two week stay; once for lunch and once for dinner. Both experiences were very good. Tacos at lunch were great. My husband had the ribs for dinner and loved the sauce. I had the prawns which were good as well. The tortilla soup was wonderful. Very filling. The staff are very friendly and attentive.... More

Dependable small restaurant about halfway between the beach hotels and the town. Great value, with some surprising culinary twists. My wife had octopus tacos, which were grilled and interestingly paired with chorizo. Perfectly done, tender pulpo. I had the grilled beef salad, which had an intriguing dressing that included dried cranberries, mangos and candied walnuts. Yum! Simple surroundings; very casual.... More

Had a great dinner here. Great food, great service, nothing bad to say :) If you are walking from the resorts along the beach it is one of the shortest walks because it is closer than the rest of the downtown restaurants.

Don Sanchez was closed for remodeling; the maitre d' @ our resort (who used to work at Don Sanchez) directed us here. Run by the same chef, the food and service at Habeneros is excellent at quite reasonable prices. You must try the frazzled prawns; ever so succulent with a crispy phyllo crust. Service is great and there doesn't seem... More

Fresh cucumber margaritas, delivered to the table by the bartender. In an oversized glass! I had two and wish I had another right now. Great food, service and atmosphere.

Did not really like anything on the menu so I felt safe ordering tacos. Wrong. They do not put anything on their tacos except the meat! No lettuce or cheese and when I asked for it the cheese came in brick form!

Great food and amazing service. A must if you are in San Jose del cabo. There are about 30 margaritas to choose from and they pack a punch. Amazing food and really friendly service. The bartender will even bring the drinks to your table to say hello.

Thank Dave T

Opened in October of 2004 by celebrity Chef F. Tadd Chapman, Habaneros Gastro Grill and Tequila bar has developed into one of San Jose del Cabo's most recognized restaurants among locals and tourists alike. Nestled behind a wall of eureka palms between San Jose's hotel zone and historic downtown, Habaneros blends the European style bistro with an eclectic "Mexican Fusion" menu all the while keeping things "Baja" Casual. In the fall of 2006 Tadd was joined by his mother, Christine Chapman to create a family operated restaurant with over 50 years of joint restaurant experience. After 4 years of satisfied clients the opportunity to expand to the adjoining local arose, and thus was born Habaneros Gastro Grill and Tequila Bar.
