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!

“Beautiful Atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 August 2014 via mobile

This was my second or third trip to Habaneros and I would have to say it was better than the rest. They allowed us to move tables a few times which was nice and no one gave us a big stink.

The drinks were taking a few minutes and our waitress so kindly brought us a free watermelon shot. It was delish! Following that we all had different selections from the menu. I had the pescado spicy and it was amazing. They even gave our table all of the sides and salsas. The restaurant is right on the beach so it makes for a great sunset dinner!

Worth a try if in town :)

“Have the Lobster Tacos!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 August 2014

Wow! There is no other place like this in Santa Teresa! It is right on the beach and is the perfect spot for a family. I have a family of 4 (ages 10, 9, 7, 4) and they were able to play on the beach and swing set while we waited for dinner.

“You cannot miss it!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 July 2014

Everytime I am in town, I try to get to Habaneros. I believe it is a great place for lunch or an early dinner if you are at the beach with the entire equipment. I simply love this spot, you get a drink, order food (Lobster Taco is a must) and see the sunset in one of the front tables. Although it is a bit pricey - as every restaurant in CR - it is a great place, difficult to forget:) Make sure .you have enough cash, since cards are not accepted (very common in Mal País + Santa Teresa area)
