We always stop in a few times when visiting PM. This place is no frills and the staff is very nice. Food is good and service is equally good as well. Drink and food specials daily never disappoint. A favorite of ours is the chicken nachos. We get them every time we are down there at least once or twice!... More

Cheap food and drinks and live evening entertainment ensure Habernero's tables are busy into the evening. Three fish tacos for 70 pesos is a good deal, but go for the fish, not the prawns which are small and very breaded (store bought and frozen?). The cheap happy hour drinks lures people in but we walked away from our margaritas as... More

Outstanding! Small place on side street with superb food. Way too much too eat. Incredibly friendly staff. Dined al... More

Had these for 70 pesos each, really crispy with lots of veggies. Great salsas aswell! A bonus is all the license-plates from different US states. 😊

We were here for Halloween. The band was great and the street performers were pretty neat to see as well. Five beers and one mixed drink and outlet bill as $15 USD with the tip included!!!!

The food we ordered wasn't very good. I ordered fish tacos and they tasted like frozen fish steaks stuffed in the tortilla. The house wine was good and the prices were cheap. This place seems like more of a drinking bar with expats who live in Morelos stopping in for a nightly drink or 10. If you decide to eat... More

While driving to our hotel south of Puerto Morelos we stopped in town to hit an ATM. Since it was lunchtime we decided to find a local restaurant. Cantina Habenero looked welcoming and we couldn't pass up 3 fish tacos for $60 ($3 U.S.). The tacos were amazing. We ended up coming back a few days later for more tacos... More

My favorite drink....Mojitos. Its a Cuban drink with lots of mint, lime and rum. Very refreshing and not sweet. During our 10 day stay in Mexico it was our go to place for Mojitos. Besides Mojitos their fish tacos are fresh, savory and delicious! We drank and ate here several times and were never disappointed.
