This place seems to cater to Americans and Canadians. They have a big menu, in English and Spanish. The food is good, with large portions. The staff is very friendly. They usually are playing American Classic Rock. We try and go here to eat every time we are in Puerto Moreles.

The resturant is located near the Plaza square. First the exchange rate for peso to dollars in the resturant is much different than the bank, 3 points less!, beware, pay in pesos. We are waiting for food.

Great staff, party vibe, lots of dancing. You will enjoy this place if you like to have a few drinks and dance and watch people. Some of the regulars are real "characters" One of the few places that regularly has live music. Good Fun !!

Well, I would've given this place a better review, but for the horrible service we received tonight. We ate here 3 times during our visit to Puerto Morelos, and I can't fault the food. It is decent Tex-Mex and the chicken enchiladas are good. However the service on our last visit was so bad I must mention it in hopes... More

This place has a good variety of food. The main attraction here is the community atmosphere of the bar, and the live music that draws you in. I have enjoyed many nights here, soaking up the local flavor. I love the hot wings. I have never had a bad meal, and others that have visited with me were always satisfied.... More

We looked up this restaurant before we left and we were not disappointed. My son ordered the double which was massive and my husband ordered the single that was still massive. I didn't order except for a drink and there was so much food we felt bad when we left that we didn't eat everything. it was worth every penny.... More

We learned of Cantina Habanero from friends at our condo and decided to give it a go our last night in town. We had an awesome time! A lively spot with a great band that played all the greats....Beatles, Rolling Stones. We danced to almost every song. The wait staff were attentive and we had the best burgers! NOTE: make... More

Drinks, eats, live music often! Hard to walk by without havin' a drink here. Seem to have live music often, and most of the local ex-pats drop by on a regular basis. Fun vibe!
