Someone we met on the ferry told us about Habenaros so we gave it a try, the food was good and the pineapple margaritas were delicious. The beachfront dining is laid back and relaxing.

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!
