My husband and I just ate here, and our experience did not match the rave reviews we'd read. Although the service was attentive, the food and ambience was quite lacking. I do NOT recommend the grilled octopus appetizer. The olives and seasoning ruined the whole dish for me. For the main entrees, we went with our writer's recommendation of the... More

We had dinner after we were referred there by a local retail merchant who said we would also get a free Marguerite with our meal. My wife asked for a mojito instead but they brought us each rather large Mojitos even though I asked for the Marguerite. When we checked out and were going over our bill we were told... More

We ventured out of our resort (Secrets Las Cabos) for some shopping and someone in our group of 8 did a search for best restaurants in San Jose and Habanero's came up. What a fabulous find! The food was absolutely amazing and the service even better. We were even treated to a magic show at our table. Our group tried... More

A very small restaurant but very good food. Their Bentley margarita is the best. It goes very well with their fish tacos. We go there every time we are in San Jose Del Cabo

This was close to our rental house, I wish we would have found this place earlier in our trip. We ate there on our last night, after we ate there, I wished we had gone there more than just once. Great food, friendly staff

you can make a meal out of the chips, salsa bar and guacamole appetizer. We always top it off with a few margaritas. One night we had the triple berry margarita. it was delicious

Visited San Jose del Cabo last week. While almost all restaurants include the 18% MX IVA tax in their menu pricing Habanero's does not. While this is listed on the menu it is easily missed and your meal ends up costing significantly more than you expect. We'll never go back again.

Good day Peter, We at Habanero’s believe that we grow both thru our successes as well as our errors and highly appreciate when either is pointed out both directly or thru this venue. We also understand that although the perceptions of each individual are distinct and equal, there are moments when perception does not come into play and truth is... More

Opened in October of 2004 by celebrity Chef F. Tadd Chapman, Habaneros Gastro Grill and Tequila bar has developed into one of San Jose del Cabo's most recognized restaurants among locals and tourists alike. Nestled behind a wall of eureka palms between San Jose's hotel zone and historic downtown, Habaneros blends the European style bistro with an eclectic "Mexican Fusion" menu all the while keeping things "Baja" Casual. In the fall of 2006 Tadd was joined by his mother, Christine Chapman to create a family operated restaurant with over 50 years of joint restaurant experience. After 4 years of satisfied clients the opportunity to expand to the adjoining local arose, and thus was born Habaneros Gastro Grill and Tequila Bar.
