This was exactly the kind of place we were looking for, food and drinks on the beach. The food was decent, nothing really great to speak about. Weird desert was terrible. The most unfortunate part about this place was their prices. We usually don't mind indulging in an over priced meal occasionally but this place was insane! The water was... More

If you stick to Cocktails and Sunset this is a 5 star review. Beside the burritos the food is ok. The killer here is the price. Just way to expensive. But no better place to see sunset than here. A real shame how they have gone down hill w food and up hill w pricing since the last time we... More

Third time back to this great restaurant right on the beach. Service is friendly and open kitchen right behind the bar so you get to to see all of the action. Dishes are creative and good size portions but on the higher price end of the spectrum. Cash only!

The location is beautiful and romantic, the food is top quality and amazing and the staff make it perfect!!! Best Ceviche in town too! It seems that every restaurant in Santa Teresa prides themselves on have the best Ceviche. We decided to try all of them and nothing beats Habaneros:)

Visited Habaneros many times during our stay in Santa Teresa. The beach bar occupies a great spot for sunset drinks and their Margaritas are the best...especially the Jalapeno ones. The food is delicious but be careful with the El Diablo sauce it is so spicy. We are both chilli addicts but this was insane. My partner couldn't stand the heat... More

We walked to Habaneros from our hotel - about 45 minutes along the beach. The staff was friendly, and the drinks, food and view were fantastic!

Had lunch here with our family. The restaurant is really on the beach with great views and nice shaded seats to sit in. The staff were great and friendly. Food was good but nothing wildly good. But the price was high for the value. We had been in the country for a week and this was by far our most... More

The best thing here is the view. I would recommend for sunset drinks and some snacks. The food is over priced for the quality (there are much better restaurants at better prices) but you pay for the location.

Beautiful beachfront Mexican fusion restaurant located in the highly rated Playa Cielo hotel. Daily specials according to the catch of the day (lobster and fish are a house specialty!) Combined with a rich diverse menu, serving fresh ingredients to your table.
An amazing selection of delicious, naturally flavored maragaritas, to sip while watching the incredible sunset views.
Come and enjoy our food and atmosphere!
