About

This restaurant is permanently closed. The genuine ambience of the Mayan culture, attentive service, & a menu complete with Caribbean seafood dishes, Mexican cuisine, steaks, & international cuisine, have built the restaurant’s strong reputation, some say that if you don’t know La Habichuela, you don’t know Cancun.

Worst experience in Cancun.
Highly pressured sales.
Charged 22% tip without asking.
"Free" mayan show was not free (charged 33 pesos per person. It is cheap but they lied.

Foods were okay but expensive compared to the quality.

I have eaten at Habichuela many times over the years but this trip the quality of everything really went down. My niece got the pollo pibil which tasted like the sauce was simply dumped on top. Pollo pibil should be marinated for 24 hours and slow cooked 8-12 offers in the sauce. I ordered the whole fish Tixin Xic, same thing, just no flavor. My wife ordered the grouper filet, and just nothing there. The sopa de lima was over salted. Just a big miss this trip.

Excellent Restaurant. Just a pearl in the middle of Cancun. Food was great and the staff was wonderful. Try the capes for desert. Fantastic!

La comida buena sin ser algo excepcional. El precio de los alimentos promedio, pero se desquitan con cervezas de 110 pesos.

Nice place to enjoy food with family. We were seated quickly upon arrival but the server was busy and didn't bring menus for 10 minutes after seating. Visit before 9am for their live music and Mayan show. Food was good and hot.... If you are sitting outside in patio area, be sure to put mosquito repellent as there are plenty. Our server brought the check and we paid with a credit card... After receiving the credit card slip to sign, I asked whether the tips were included in the bill and server stated it wasn't. I requested a copy of my bill and saw the tips were added to the bill and he crossed it off with pen so I wouldn't see and he could double dip but I caught it and he apologized for the mistake and blamed it on the cashier for the mess up. Be careful and always check your bill with detail.

Great restaurant with exceptional service. Second location of a long time Cancun locals favorite, it had a great vibe. We were there on a Saturday night and they had live music which was unexpected fun! We ordered seafood dishes, all were great. 1/2 priced wine special too! Would go again!
