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.

“Great little spot, a short hop from our hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 28, 2012

We had the surf and turf dinner for two and it was very good. The place lived up to all of its recommendations. They also have a really cool and HUGE tequila display. The most bottles of tequila i've ever seen in one place. They also offered to cook our fish from our scheduled charter trip the following day if we wanted to come back, so keep them in mind as an option if you can't cook in your hotel.

We were told by some locals we had to eat breakfast at Habenero's . We couldn't manage to make it for breakfast but the burgers are great. Super nice employees.

“Loud Music & Expensive”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 23, 2012

Habanero's is a couple of doors down from Cata Wine. They couldn't be more different. This one has indoor and outdoor seating. Inside the music is deafening, eat outside. The food is okay, nothing special and it's about the same price as Cata....eat at Cata Wine and have a great experience.

“Unbelievably delicious!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 17, 2012

Wow! Total gem in San Jose del Cabo! Decent sized restaurant offering indoor & outdoor seating. Quaint, classy yet relaxed atmosphere. The service is top notch and our meal was out of this world! My husband and I had some delicious margaritas and decided to split the surf and turf dish, which offers shrimp, 2 lobster tails, filet mignon, vegetables and mashed potatoes. Yum yum yum! Definitely take some time and stop by!
