Description: 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.

“Amazing”
Reviewed 4 May 2012

We visited Habanero's on the last night of our holiday in San Jose Cabo (in April). We were a very large group and just showed up at the restaurant hoping that they could accommodate all of us without notice, it wasn't a problem at all. Our server was fantastic! He entertained the young kids of the group with some magic tricks and was a very professional server. Drinks were delicious and the food was outstanding! The filet mignon was probably one of the best steaks I have ever eaten.
After dinner our server kept the magic tricks coming - and even shared the scoop on one of them for me to bring back to Canada and show off!

Next time we are in the area we will definitely be visiting again!

“Never miss Habanero's when in town”
Reviewed 4 May 2012

I've eaten here many times over the past 3-4 years and have always been satisfied. Good and interesting food, well presented and a friendly staff. Can eat any time of the day, a treat when you arrive at off times from an east coast flight. Don't miss it!

“Very Nice Casual Dining in San Jose”
Reviewed 3 May 2012 via mobile

We dined at the counterpart of this restaurant, Don Sanchez the other night, and decided to give this place a try. It lives up to its ratings. Great food and reasonable prices with friendly service. The Shrimp with a Tequila and Tamarind was very good if you are a fan of sweet and sour combinations with a little heat. The Lobster Tostados were also very well received. The drink special was a Magarita made with Nopales, the leaves of the prickly pear cactus. It was wonderful, not sweet and very refreshing.

“Torn between average and very good”
Reviewed 30 April 2012

So I gave them the benefit of a doubt because they were very nice people. We had the surf and turf for 2 ($58) which consisted of 4 very large coconut shrimp, 1 substantial lobster tail and an 8 oz filet mignon. The loster tail was the star of the dish - juicy and sweet. The coconut shrimp were quite good but the papaya dipping sauce was too sweet. There were plenty of fresh, homemade vegetables and mashed potatoes. The disappointing part of the meal was that the filet mignon was somewhat overcooked instead of being medium rare as we requested. If we had been in the USA I would have sent it back but I don't like to make a fuss in a foreign country.

“Third visit”
Reviewed 28 April 2012

We keep going back because the food is good close to resort cabo azul
However they are allways out of a few things that my wife keeps picking
So id say the menu is ok and thats because of the short falls on supply
Quality is good service is ok
Price is a little rich for what you get
I would say try it we could have been there at off times , 3 times though i dont think so
