Nice place to have a dinner

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!

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 quality food for Greece. Never been to Cuba but hope food there tasted as good as this meal. Good size portion and friendly staff. Recommend if in local area and want a break from great Greek food.

We felt like eating something different last Sunday so we headed towards Habanera. We absolutely love old houses and this one is really beautiful but it seems run down and sad despite the bright colours in the interior. Old houses require upkeep and obviously it hasn't had any work done in ages. As for the food and service. The service... More

Thessaloniki does not have many non greek food restaurants. Habanera is one of them. Situated in G.Papandreou stteet in a neoclassic 2 floor house, nicely decorated, offers a different taste. The service is slow but with many smiles and helpful hints. The natchos vegeterian is a must, and so are the chicken and veal fagitas offered for one or two... More

This place offers a bif variety of mexican, cuban, american and other traditional food, even though it might be a litlle too expensive! The good thing is that there is the 11€ menu (which I haven't taken) that consists of the main plate and a desert or wine I think! The great thing is that every cocktail is at 8€... More

This restaurant feels so out of place but same time really refreshing after munching on Greek food for days. I haven't visited any better non-Greek/Mediterranean restaurant in Thessaloniki so far. Big portions and great sangria! I absolutely love the decor too.

An old house converted to a restaurant, a city institution since it's been around for many years, Caribbean food that is colorful and tasty ... good staff and lots of hip people.

Good food for people who are hungry! Biiig portions! Prices could be more reasonable but the quality and quantity makes up for it. And as always, perfectly executed cocktails.
