Habanero in in Santa Teresa beach. It's unique setting makes it a great place to sit and relax, with drinks and cameras to take the most beautiful sunset photos! Waiters are very friendly and cater to all your needs. You will have an unforgettable experience of you visit Habanero at sunset!!

This was by far the best food we had in Santa Teresa. The tuna was superb; highly recommended ! Dinner in a beautiful setting by the sea; not cheap but definitely worth it ! Great service.

Great mojito, fried shrimp, avocado jalapeno chips, and view! Not many people because of low season which is fine

The food, the Passion fruit/fresas margaritas and the gorgeous sunset long the nice seats and tables with a pool and massages overlooking the Pink Sun going down. A must try for sure!!!

If you are looking to relax with good food, drinks and view, then Habaneros is the place for you. The server was really nice and food was fresh. I got the frozen jalapeno margarita and it was perfectly balanced with spicy and sweet. I couldn't taste much alcohol and for $12 a drink, you want to feel like you are... More

We enjoyed our food and didn't find the prices too outrageous. Great place for sunsets! Good service. During happy hour we had 3 margaritas each, an appetizer and two entrees for $60 USD. In Canada we regularly spend $80+ on a meal out.

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

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!
