This is a beautiful spot with fantastic margaritas- try the locally flavoured ones! Mahi mahi Ceviche was delicious and tacos generous. It is the place to be at sunset!

Dinner at Habaneros is incredible! The lobster tacos and tuna poke are delicious. It is great to relax on the beach and enjoy the sunset.

Excellent food is very good and the service is outstanding they have a wide variety of drinks and cocktails, the range of beers is very limited they do not offer national beers, they have several types of chiles and the menu is wide and tasty.

You will be glad you stopped here for food or even just a sunset libation. The service is excellent and the flavors of the dishes are wonderful. I am a vegetarian and they always were willing to accommodate my requests.

This restaurant has an amazing setting, however the food is expensive and quite bad. The service was very slow and the bathrooms were not very clean. The worst part was that as we arrived to the hotel Playa Cielo, they were emptying their sewage right...More

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!
