We're back! Again and again! Whenever we come back this is our first place to start and usually our last. Oh, and in between! :) Great service, amazing food!!! Tonight they were busy but defiantly worth the wait. Service was still great! Thank you!

The menu is tourist friendly having an English side as well as Spanish and is easily laid out with a nice variety of choices to pick from. The service was friendly and actually fairly quick... More

Great reviews are well deserved. I recommend the Tortilla soup, Chilil Relleno, Cadillac Margarita Cuisine! Very good value and would be twice the price in the States.

I love the perogie bennies in the place. They are amazing! They offer generous size portions, and the service is always great. The shrimp Cesar salad is also wonderful. Habaneros is our staple 'take visitors for breakfast' place... it's been on our favorite list for over 8 years... which is saying something about their consistency.

All good here. The owners also own Dom Sanchez, which is rated the Best Restaurant in San Jose Year after Year. No surprises here. All the Tacos are excellent. I felt bad when the bill came out, it was so cheap. I put more in just because I felt bad. The food is fantastic.

During our 2 week stay in San Jose we ate at Habaneros 8 times - could not stay away because there was always another dish we dreamt about. The fish of the day with 3 different preparations, the prawns, the ribs, chicken voodoo, the calamari and the tortilla soup - yum! Then there's breakfast - the eggs Benny Imperial are... More

The poblano soup was the best we've ever had. Would love the recipe. Octopus salad was also good. The entree prawns wrapped in catch of the day were, unfortunately, tepid. The roasted asparagus was terrific and hot. The catch of the day was parrot fish, which as divers, we assumed was inedible but perhaps a different fish? Service was very... More

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.
