“Best seafood in Caye Caulket”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 August 2014 via mobile

In a one week stay, this was the only restaurant we went to twice.
The Trio appetizer was fantastic and their grilled fish stuffed with lobster was epic.
They also served up a serious Mojito and the service was impeccable.
If you visit this island, Habaneros is a must dining stop.

“Amazing food in a suprising location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 August 2014

We ate at Habanero's twice while we were on Caye Caulker. The food was absolutely amazing. The quality was definitely of what would be a finer restaurant in Los Angeles or any big city in the states. I loved the atmosphere on the porch, the guitar player, and the food was just fantastic. The only thing we did not like (out of a group of 6) was the very soupy hummus. Hummus should be creamy!! Other than that, I liked everything I tasted there. It is US prices, and probably the only place on the island that charges that, but the service and food are definitely of the the highest standard. I loved it!

“Excellent food and service!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 August 2014

IMHO, this is the best restaurant on Caye Caulker. However, it is a bit expensive. I had the Mayan Reef and my girlfriend had the coconut encrusted snapper. The Mayan Reef was good, but the coconut encrusted snapper was delicious. The food is nicely presented. Each table has a candle burning on it. This is a nice spot to go for a romantic dinner. The service is great, all the waiters and waitresses are very attentive.

“Expensive but worth it”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 July 2014 via mobile

This is one of the more expensive restaurants on Caye Caulker, and we had to wait at the bar for a little while for a table, but it really really was worth it. My boyfriend had coconut encrusted snapper, and I had the snapper stuffed with lobster - both had a tropical feel with lots of sweet and savoury flavours mixed together on the plate. Wr both felt that this was one of the best meals we had ever eaten, and were a bit sad when we had cleared our plates! The live music and the busy atmosphere added to the experience. We didn't have to wait long for the food and we felt well attended to by the staff - would definitely recommend!

“Covered porch outside dining.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 July 2014

Excellent food. Friendly staff. Live background music that doesn't drown out your conversation. Covered outdoor porch raised above street level. Walk by and make reservations because it's always crowded.
