Standard Mexican food at a very good price. The food is good, but is typical. Everything we tried was good; no pretense. Service was slow even for Puerto Morelos. The music volume definitely interfered with any conversation.

Want to stop at a place where real Mexicans eat? Try some food you will not get in the US.? This place has lots of interesting items that are quite good. Be sure to ask if the food is picante; some stuff is hot.

We consistanly visit Cantina Habenero every year, Great afternoon Margaritas , inexpensive and pack a sneaky punch. Food is always well made and a great value, You run into a lot of American and Canadian travelers, lively conversation. Take time to stop and visit, you won't be disappointed .

We were there several times during our trip. The beer is CHEAP and the entertainment is satisfying. We enjoys an afternoon sitting a people watching and then an evening listening to a band and watching a Michael Jackson impersonator. GOod time

Haven't been for a couple of years, but it is awesome to see old friends and make new ones. Staff is great - food has upped it's quality. Had the fajitas several times (all three kinds are great). Enough for two. The music as always is fun. Can't wait to go back next year.

Place is very popular with Canadians & Americans. All the Mexican dishes were tasty. Service was pretty good considering the restaurant was full (NFL conference games on 2 big TVs) and is very friendly.
