Description: 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!

Wow why did I wait till my last night to eat here.....the food was to die for, with a great beach front setting, and a great atmosphere. It was a truly 5 star experience....I want to eat my Tuna meal again, my mouth is watering just thinking about it. Please try and go there early in your trip, as you will for sure go back

Our family of five ate at Habanero's without a reservation on a Monday night in mid-February, 2013. The place was absolutely jumping with large groups, but the friendly hostess got us drinks right away, and our anticipated 25 minute wait for table ended up being no more than 10, when we got seated at one of the 10-12 tables in this outdoor, beach-side restaurant. The specialties of the house include a lobster-topped snapper, and a whole grilled lobster with a side of cheesy-mashed potatos served in the shell. Our great waitress Melissa (from Long Beach, Long Island, NY) served us quickly and explained in detail what our wonderful spicy sides and sauces were. The owner, Schlomi (spelling?), was a wonderful and considerate host, and it was great to see the cooking done in the outdoor kitchen. The food was awesome, and the portions king-sized. We HIGHLY recommend for families and groups, but a bit loud and crowded for a quiet romantic night.

5 stars all round. I loved Habaneros. You MUST have the Octopus and the Lobster. GAry serves fresh fish daily that is to die for. The guacamole is amaze balls, the Margaritas are better than any I have ever had, and the staff serve all these delectable divine dishes with a smile and a banter. It is best to visit at sunset and drink cocktails before indulging in a seafood dinner extravaganza! All I can say is ENJOY and PURA VIDA!

We enjoyed a delicious, breezy lunch here. Terrific barbecued chicken and fish tacos with yummy guacamole, black beans, rice and assorted salsas. Good loca beer and wonderfully refreshing, freshly made mint lemonade.

Great, friendly service.

Two thumbs up!
