The service here was only soso. The food, while plenty, was not so good, the decor was cheap and uninteresting.

Authentic and very high quality restaurant in Merida. Friendly service, not. too touristic and reasonably priced. Habanero serves mostly traditional Yacatan dishes. The Yucatas Especial platter is great, and the fresh made quacamole is definately the best we have had so far in Mexico!

We had dinner here twice on our recent trip to Playa del Carmen. The happy hour is a good deal with 2x1 beers and margaritas (along with some other cocktails). Try the tamarindo margs! Food-wise, the Pollo Afrodite, their signature dish, is incredible, but an...More

First they brought out tortilla chips but they were very stale, incredibly greasy and had no flavor...then I ordered panuchos de cochinita, and the tortillas they served them on were also incredibly stale and just covered in grease, again with no flavor but grease! Just...More

An unbelievably great place for snacks or lunch or dinner. Everything is authentic, delicately spiced, fresh, local and mouth watering. I can't think of one thing I would change.
