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!

Habaneros was my favorite restaurant in all of Mal Pais. Situated right on the beach, the place has everything you would want - gorgeous views and sounds of the ocean, traditional and exotic drinks, and incredibly delicious food. There were 8 of us in my party, and we all agreed that the food there was outstanding.

Seabass on a bed of mashed potatoes, so good! The atmosphere was comfy with the cozy lounge benches and the view of the beach. Also going to see the hermit crabs on the beach after dinner was fun. Great place

After renting some boards from Del Soul, the american owner recommended we eat at the best restaurant in malpais/santa teresa, Habaneros. The location was nice, with a beach view. The dogs that live there are very friendly. The prices were steep. We would not have minded on the prices if the food lived up to warrant them, but sadly, they did not. The ceviche was so-so. The quesadillas had meat in them that was grissly and chewey, the chips were a little stale, and the batidos (juice smoothies) were a lot more flavorful in other restaurants we ate at. Overall it was disappointing.

One of the few restaurants with direct-to-beach access and definitely the best cocktails I had in Santa Teresa. Great vibe, helpful staff, big fan!
