Description: Opened in October of 2004 by celebrity Chef F. Tadd Chapman, Habaneros Gastro Grill and Tequila bar has developed into one of San Jose del Cabo's most recognized restaurants among locals and tourists alike. Nestled behind a wall of eureka palms between San Jose's hotel zone and historic downtown, Habaneros blends the European style bistro with an eclectic "Mexican Fusion" menu all the while keeping things "Baja" Casual. In the fall of 2006 Tadd was joined by his mother, Christine Chapman to create a family operated restaurant with over 50 years of joint restaurant experience. After 4 years of satisfied clients the opportunity to expand to the adjoining local arose, and thus was born Habaneros Gastro Grill and Tequila Bar.

“A real pleasure”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 16, 2012

We have eaten here now for a number of years when we visit San Jose and have never been disappointed in the quality of the food and service--very friendly and ask Victor to show you his tricks of dexterity particularly the one he does with a ring and a string.We try to get a table outside --while it is on the sidewalk it is an extension of the restaurant and quite nicely framed by potted plants. Always a real treat!

“Great food ....in a strip mall setting....”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 14, 2012

Excellent food, some creative offerings. Great tequila selection. Fun and engaging staff. We ate there twice on our past visit to San Jose del Cabo. The group would say the repeat visit was because of the food... but to be more specific, it was the Mexican Mud Pie (really good).

“Good food, reasonable prices and nice people”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 14, 2012

We shared the surf and turf for two and it was very good, the steak was excellent, the shrimp large and flavorful and the lobster tender. Each of us had a salad, I had the one with blue cheese and it was wonderful. We will return here again.

There was construction on the street, and eating outside was not the best choice under those circumstances, but otherwise it was a casual place where children and families are welcome

“Gotta try the sushizza!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 10, 2012

I hadn't visited this place in a while and I'm glad to see they still have great food. The spicy tuna sushizza was delicious and their sweet potato fries are just perfect! Definitely going back soon!
