Located in a beautiful building in the eastern Thessaloniki, habanera is considered to be the best (and the worst) carribean restaurant in Thessaloniki... since there is no other. We ordered a chocken salad, chicken wings with bbq (not) sauce, burritos and half litre of sangria. The portions were big but not very tasty. The chicken salad was covered with a... More

A great location with great atmosphere and food that reminds me of home. The restaurant is located in a neoclassic home that has been renovated with Caribbean memorabilia. The food is authentic and very tasty. The portions are very large and can be easily shared. The salads and appetizers are a great start, and the main dishes have choices for... More

Have been to this place several times, the food is consistently good with huge portions. Burritos are a must, and the guacamole is home made. Service always very good.

First of all, a great atmosphere. Soft lights, great up-tempo music, great decoration and a lot of happy faces around. The dishes were delicious, and the quantities, more that we could handle. The garden was lovely too. The prices, not the lowest you can find, but the experience was worth every euro. We will come again!

For cocktails (a few pages to choose from!), best sagria, big variety of appetizers (I am basically a big fan of all), amazing dishes, beloved fajitas! I tried the first carribean meal and it was quite extraordinary! Also one of the two best guacamole I ve ever had. Not a big fan of the salad that comes with the lunch... More

A restaurant that makes you travel to the Caribbean sea! This place is very cosy, with a Caribbean ambient that represents Cuban and Mexican scenery in a very nice neoclassical building of the city. We had some very well-elaborated coctails and excellent and very tasty food. Loved the tacos and the "patatas rancheras". The service was very good, we got... More

Great atmosphere, very good and tasty food , big plates so you don't need to order a lot of food . We usually prefer to order tortillas with chicken which is a delicious plate . Service is always friendly and helpful!

Thank Constantina V
