“Mouth watering food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 May 2013

Great friendly environment to hang out with your friends and kids to enjoy mouth watering food. Awesome bakery, made fresh daily. Family owned business, its real home cooking at its best. Great location to enjoy the fireworks or bring your own bottle of wine and relax.

“Tasty Gyro”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 May 2013

Haven't had a good gyro in years. Now I can get them just down the street. Expensive, but yummy. I will only be able to afford to go once or so a month. I will go though. The breakfast offering were very affordable prices.

“Just what SPI needed -- an excellent Mediterranean restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 May 2013

Today was the grand opening and the food didn't disappoint in the least -- everything was deliciously prepared. Be kind, the potential for this restaurant to become truly outstanding is evident. However, there were a few start-up "kinks" to work out, but a visit is a must! Mabruk!

“One of a kind”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 May 2013

habibi's offers a new experience to diners on South Padre Island from the Mediterranean food to the decor to the people who make it a special experience. This is a brand new restaurant and the owners are determined to give the best food and service possible. The food is excellent and the bakery is excellent and innovative. My favorite bakery item is the pumpkin empanadas, but the grapefruit pie and baklava are terrific too. If you want to know why a Mediterranean restaurant has Mexican sweet bread, go ask Odetth and Carlos (owners). It is an interesting story and worth your time.
