Description: Beautiful beachfront Mexican fusion restaurant located in the highly rated Playa Cielo hotel. Daily specials according to the catch of the day (lobster and fish are a house specialty!) Combined with a rich diverse menu, serving fresh ingredients to your table. An amazing selection of delicious, naturally flavored maragaritas, to sip while watching the incredible sunset views. Come and enjoy our food and atmosphere!

We visited this restaurant on recommendation from Mayli Moya, who ended up being our waitress. She was awesome!! Being in a foreign country, we wanted suggestions on where and what to eat, and we were nothing but satisfied! Mayli gave us amazing recommendations which we can't stop thinking about. Good thing we have three more nights in Costa Rica! The chipotle shrimp tacos...no words to explain how delicious those were... :)

I had the sense I was bothering the staff by pretty much asking anything (and then waited for water until over 15 minutes, and 3 times of asking). The food was good, though. And staff probably change a lot.

Myself and my wife spent two weeks in Santa Teresa and eat mostly at Habanero. The location is truly amazing being that it is one of the only restaurants in that is truly on the sand. Gary, the chef works magic back in the tiniest of kitchens. Presentation and taste are unbelievable. Please try the lobster tacos or the seared tuna. As for the wait staff, Bree, Miley, Ruth and Renee do a great job with a constant smile. Make sure it's on your list when you stop in Santa Teresa.

Had an amazing salad with mangoes, peanuts, avocado sauce. A few weeks later sitting on a beach the other side of the country I suddenly really wanted to go back just to have this salad again!
I don't eat dairy so asked for it without pesto, was impressed that the chef came out to personally double check with me that what he was making was ok.
Also it's just a really nice place to sit on the beach.

This place is amazing! Best chicken tacos I've ever had and the tuna bruschetta was to die for. We went three times in a week long visit. Sit on the sand closest to the beach and watch hundreds hermit crabs as you eat. Live music was also excellent! Service was great and friendly, but they we're busy and therefore a bit slow. Totally fine when you're on vacation and have a jalapeño dusted margarita to tide you over.
