“Fun, Fun, Fun and great food!!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 11, 2013

It is always fun to go to Cantina Habanero's, you run into friends and they treat you better than family. Naty is the sweetest, and she has a great kitchen staff, the food is properly prepared and seasoned. The Bar staff is always fun, Heidi is a bartender that knows how to taked care of you!!! If you stop in, you won't be disappointed!!! Was there in May, will be back in Novemeber!!!

“Ate there twice and enjoyed both times greatly!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 19, 2013

This is more than a bar. This is where the ex-pats hang out and where gringos like yours truly can get a Mexican version of Tex-Mex [as weird as that sounds - but you do start to miss it] that is really delicious. It's welcoming and somehow familiar [a great quality on a long trip] but still Mexico. We very much enjoyed the food at Habanero and meeting the locals - ex-pat and Mexican alike. I disagree that it's "uncomfortable" for people who don't fit into the ex-pat crowd. Indeed, we didn't see anyone who appeared to not be enjoying themselves either night we ate there and all different groups of folks were there.

Over the 2 dinners, we had burritos, enchiladas, fish tacos and on the second trip, I had a fish sandwich which was the size of my head and delicious. We really can't say anything bad about it. Oh yeah, french fries like British chips that were freaking amazing...

“Great little place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 11, 2013

Very quaint-excellent authentic Mexican food-be careful of the "green sauce" While we were there for lunch after scuba diving with Brett from the shop across the street (DiveIn Puerto Morelos) a local brought in a fish he just caught and they cooked it for him -neat...

“Expat Hangout”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 27, 2013

This is a place where expats hang out and drink at night. The food is not great and the atmosphere is uncomfortable for anyone who does not fit in to this crowd.

“Nice little bar.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 21, 2013

Popped in here for a drink while walking through Puerto Morelos.

Very nice little, run by a friendly German lady called Heidi, and with a customer base or ex-pat American locals.

Cheap beer - 50 pesos for 2.
