“Great positioning on the beach”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 13, 2014

We went to Habaneros for lunch and stayed for hours enjoying great ceviche and off course the amazing lobster tacos - it is big enough to share. We went back for dinner on another night. The restaurant was packed but the staff was amazing, keeping us informed of our order as there were two very large tables that placed their orders before us, but they made special effort in getting our appetizers out quickly. It was such a relaxing evening that we did not mind and enjoyed the magharitas instead.

“Amazing view, even better food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 10, 2014

Me and my girl friend spent our last meal of our trip here by the luck of just taking a walk before heading over to our original planned dinner reservation. Our intention when we found habaneros was to just have a drink, (which was very good, a pitcher of margaritas) but ended up staying for dinner. She had the shrimp tacos and i had the lobster tacos. No words can describe how delicious the food was. But what i can say is the service was amazing, very friendly! they make you feel like you are part of there family!.

“Not worth the hype...”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 7, 2014

Went for New Years Eve - it was a fixed menu, so I'll give them credit, i'm sure it was hectic and could've thrown the kitchen off. The service was stellar, menu on paper looked great but definitely didnt taste like Mexican food. The view is absolutely amazing, and one you can't get at most places in Santa Teresa... But our bill was outrageous for what we got. Not much value, but if you dont mind paying for the view, it's worth it.
