All good here. The owners also own Dom Sanchez, which is rated the Best Restaurant in San Jose Year after Year. No surprises here. All the Tacos are excellent. I felt bad when the bill came out, it was so cheap. I put more in just because I felt bad. The food is fantastic.

During our 2 week stay in San Jose we ate at Habaneros 8 times - could not stay away because there was always another dish we dreamt about. The fish of the day with 3 different preparations, the prawns, the ribs, chicken voodoo, the calamari and the tortilla soup - yum! Then there's breakfast - the eggs Benny Imperial are... More

The poblano soup was the best we've ever had. Would love the recipe. Octopus salad was also good. The entree prawns wrapped in catch of the day were, unfortunately, tepid. The roasted asparagus was terrific and hot. The catch of the day was parrot fish, which as divers, we assumed was inedible but perhaps a different fish? Service was very... More

We went for dinner and although reservations are highly recommended, they got us right in. All of our food was excellent, drinks were very good and the service was top-notch. They are very attentive and accommodating. The prices were extremely reasonable.

Having been recommended this restaurant by both family and friends we finally tried if for dinner and I'm glad we did. The calamari and chips and salsa were very good and the chile relleno was excellent. Portion sizes are reasonable so I didn't feel too full and we shared the chocolate mud pie which was delicious. We didn't have reservations... More

Habanero's offers consistently great/good food with attentive service. Prices are very reasonable for quality of food. One can usually find parking out front which is a bonus if you are in San Jose for the Art Walk- easy to find. Well worth a visit if you have time.

This is one of the best restaurants on the Baja! The combinations of flavours and cooking styles are satisfying all around. Christine, Victor and staff are professional but friendly and welcoming and we never have to worry about cleanliness or what we're eating. We eat here several times each time we come to Las Cabos. Very good value!!

Thank Sandy L

Opened in October of 2004 by celebrity Chef F. Tadd Chapman, Habaneros Gastro Grill and Tequila bar has developed into one of San Jose del Cabo's most recognized restaurants among locals and tourists alike. Nestled behind a wall of eureka palms between San Jose's hotel zone and historic downtown, Habaneros blends the European style bistro with an eclectic "Mexican Fusion" menu all the while keeping things "Baja" Casual. In the fall of 2006 Tadd was joined by his mother, Christine Chapman to create a family operated restaurant with over 50 years of joint restaurant experience. After 4 years of satisfied clients the opportunity to expand to the adjoining local arose, and thus was born Habaneros Gastro Grill and Tequila Bar.
