We are staying at Playa Cielo Resort and have been to Habaneros for drinks before which were exceptional. Tonight we decided to stay for dinner and were not disappointed. We started with cocktails, Mula Tica for me and a traditional Margarita for my better half....More

Can't wait to go to this place again. The food was amazing and the sun set while you having cocktails is a must.

We had to find a place to ride out the rain one afternoon and Habaneros was the best choice we could've made, we loved everything on the menu but that octopus is something special. Drinks were fantastic and the ambience is perfect, right in front...More

Habanero was an excellent choice for our TexMex loving family. The food was priced well and fresh made. It's a nice 13 chair restaurant on the beach so reservations are recommended. Great food! There was something for everyone!

My wife and I enjoyed a nice lunch accompanied by some great cocktails. The Langostino (Latin lobster) was delicious and so were the drinks including the watermelon caipirinhas. Great restaurant on the beach!

Great restaurant with fabulous food (diablo shrimp quesadilla), heart stopping views and fantastic service! Was sad to discover this place as it was THE best meal I've had in Costa Rica!!! They were also really hospitable and let me use their beach chairs and pool....More

My wife and I will be traveling to Santa Teresa in a month. My wife has celiac disease and must eat a gluten-free diet. Are there any gluten-free options at your restaurant? Thanks!

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!
