Family dinner in December - take the nearest restaurant we never visited before - and ended up at Habanero. Corner restaurant in the middle of super-trendy urbane quarters, proclaiming west-indian food. I had enchiladas - an excellent dish - nicely seasoned (could perhaps have been hotter). The others in the party were very happy with their dishes too. Very good... More

It's a good place to take a smoke, get into a fight and check out a few strange people. Otherwise it's not a very nice place.

The title says it all, having spent many years in South America (Ecuador) this restaurant delivers a real Latin American feel. Great food in a fabulous little setting.

The food was very good. The meals are big and the price is decent. Despite that the place is a bit crowdy and noicy it's recommended!

Informal mexican place, they seem to pop up everywhere in Oslo these days. I can't really recommend Habanero over the competition, but atmosphere was lively on a rainy friday night and that should count for something. It took way too long to get the food, but it gave the nice waiter a chance to sell us more San Miguel. I... More
