“Amazing food, location and service!”
Reviewed June 21, 2014 via mobile

Myself and my wife spent two weeks in Santa Teresa and eat mostly at Habanero. The location is truly amazing being that it is one of the only restaurants in that is truly on the sand. Gary, the chef works magic back in the tiniest of kitchens. Presentation and taste are unbelievable. Please try the lobster tacos or the seared tuna. As for the wait staff, Bree, Miley, Ruth and Renee do a great job with a constant smile. Make sure it's on your list when you stop in Santa Teresa.

“Still thinking about this place!”
Reviewed June 20, 2014

Had an amazing salad with mangoes, peanuts, avocado sauce. A few weeks later sitting on a beach the other side of the country I suddenly really wanted to go back just to have this salad again!
I don't eat dairy so asked for it without pesto, was impressed that the chef came out to personally double check with me that what he was making was ok.
Also it's just a really nice place to sit on the beach.

“Best Tacos Ever”
Reviewed June 12, 2014

This place is amazing! Best chicken tacos I've ever had and the tuna bruschetta was to die for. We went three times in a week long visit. Sit on the sand closest to the beach and watch hundreds hermit crabs as you eat. Live music was also excellent! Service was great and friendly, but they we're busy and therefore a bit slow. Totally fine when you're on vacation and have a jalapeño dusted margarita to tide you over.

“great location and food”
Reviewed June 11, 2014

We took a walk on the beach from where we were staying and it was well worth it. The food was great as were the drinks. Such a nice relaxing atmosphere and being able to eat on the beach was a wonderful experience. The salad was amazing, the lemonade was delicious and we also ordered ceviche and guacamole; also fabulous. Would definitely go here again.

“Fresh and delicious”
Reviewed June 10, 2014

Fantastic food and location. Service can be slow; but hey, you are in Costa Rica so you shouldn't be in a hurry.
