    Art Walk night in downtown San Jose del Cabo so restaurant was busy during our visit. Our waiter may have been having a bad night because he seemed very distracted and didn’t really pay attention to us. We couldn’t even get his attention to request our check for a good ten minutes after he took away our dishes. The food was very good and served hot (not by our waiter). We had octopus as an appetizer, and the catch of the day and Chili Wellington as our entrees. Both highly recommended. Overall we had an excellent meal in a beautiful setting with mediocre service. Favorably impressed enough to recommend Habanero’s fora great meal.

    The food, the atmosphere, and the ambience were wonderful. Great, interesting menu. However, while our server, Paris, was great the kitchen was a disaster and pretty much made it a not very enjoyable experience. Our friends were served their entrees as expected but ours did not come out at the same time. We waited for a half an hour to be served ours and by that time our friends had long finished their meal. I doubt we will return. While our server gave us a desert on the house no one else was either apologetic or offered us anything for the inconvenience.

    The restaurant is charming inside. Very comfortable atmosphere. The service was excellent. The live music from Grupo Serenata (the Vargas family) was Outstanding—and the best part of the evening. Margaritas were excellent as was the Caesar Salad, but the recommended main course (Chile Wellington) was not good. An expensive meal for the quality of the main course. We’d go back for the drinks and live music!

    Old chewy lobster in a hard tortilla and mediocre sauce. Risotto was typical Mexican rice and few bits of seafood. Truly awful for $150 w/ 3 margaritas. Avoid

    My wife and I have been dining here off and on for the past ten years, even before they moved to their current location. Last night we were there for the second time in two weeks. It was disappointing. The food was okay, not spectacular, and very overpriced. The service was good. The ambiance is great. The Mariachi band has to be the best in all of Mexico. Amazing guitarist! We are always kind to the staff and we tip well. The wine list is awful and hugely overpriced. I noticed that last week, and asked our server if I could bring my own bottle. We had guests and brought two bottles. The shock came with the check where we were charged 1,000 pesos (about $60) for corkage fees. I requested to speak to the manager. He did not come, and instead offered a small discount on the corkage fee, but only for one bottle. I again asked to speak to the manager. He was arrogant and stated “We are in business to make money.” I don’t disagree, but there is something to be said for a good product at a decent price. Value for money. The manager admitted to me that their markup on some of their sub-standard wine is as much as 300 - 400%. I find that simply outrageous. It is simply another way to gouge the Gringo. No further concessions. Nothing. Nada. Zip. “We are in business to make money.” We had drinks, appetizers, and mains. We didn’t cheap out. My wife and I have eaten in some of the finest restaurants in the world. I certainly don’t mind paying for good food and good service, but I simply hate to feel that I’ve been ripped off, which is how I felt when I left Habanero’s last night. I’m afraid our ten year relationship has ended. Sad.

My husband raved about his Voodoo chicken. We also had the calamari starter, Chile Wellington, enchiladas, and lamb shanks.

    We were looking forward to eating here based on other reviews. We were disappointed. First, as soon as we did not order drinks, our server changed his “tune” with us. We started with calamari and it was okay. We waited quite a while to order our meal after that. It was chilly with a breeze, so we asked for a heater. The waiter was annoyed that we asked, and then it did not work. We had to ask again for him to come and turn it on. When our food finally came, my chicken wasn’t cooked. Again, we seemed to be an annoyance to our server when we told him my chicken was raw in the middle. After quite some time, and some “confusion” with our bill, we were given a complimentary dessert. The other dish that was ordered was tasty. It was disappointing to say the least…

    our waiter team was very attentive, we had a nice bottle of featured from Spain. the risotto was very tasty, the lamb shank delicious and the chicken dish with corn also very good. desserts are definitely made to share, the chocolate ice cream pie slice was huge and the perfect end to a great meal

    Well it started out well but went downhill quickly! We arrived for 30 minutes of happy hour. They sold us the drink special which completely ripped us off. So a margarita at happy hour is $90 pesos and they sold a drink that they then proceeded to charge us $490 pesos during happy hour. And it continues to get worse! We will NEVER go back there. And we will tell this story to EVERYONE!
