Tradicional y pintoresco restaurant en el centro de Cancún, el servicio muy bueno, los meseros y el capitán auténticamente se preocupan por hacer que el cliente tenga una experiencia agradable.
La Habichuela is excellent! We had a great dinner. Perfect from start to finish.
La reserva con open table todo perfecto, la atención en el restaurante excelente. Nuestros camareros muy profesionales, super buen servicio.
El único punto de mejora que mencionaría es que pocos días después de reservar, intenté añadir 2 personas más pero no me fue posible en Open Table así que llame al restaurante, la persona que tomo mi llamada no fue nada amable y al final me ayudó a añadir a las dos personas pero el trato fue super frío, aunque me confirmó el cambio al llegar al restaurante no estaban enterados.
Como el staff que nos atendió en el restaurante fueron súper profesionales, de inmediato añadieron los dos servicios que faltaban sin ningún problema.
I chose this restaurant based on the advice of Trip Advisor as a great location to celebrate your birthday. This place did not disappoint. The ambiance was wonderful, the manager knew I was there to celebrate my 50th birthday ( I mentioned it when making my reservation) so the wait staff brought out my dessert inclusive of a candle and Happy Birthday song, It was nice. The price was reasonable and the food was really good.
The patio setting is lovely, waiters are attentive and skilled, food is delicious! It’s a special place.
As always (we are Chicago travelers) it was wonderful!
A favourite place we have come every year for 15 years. Highly recommend
Great food and service in a unique place!
We had dined here many times over the years on our visits to Cancun. This year was very disappointing. Service was terrible. Salad and soup arrived at the same time then we waited forever for our entrees. Once dinner was served no ever asked if everything was ok or if we needed anything else. Then we had to flag someone down to ask for our check after waiting for over a half hour. This restaurant was always the highlight of our trip but definitely not this year. Something has changed and I hope they address it soon or this will be our last trip to La Habichuela.
Fabulous food and great service
Food was ok. Ambiance was excellent. Great service.
Wonderful atmosphere as usual. Friendly service but a tad slow.
Beautiful restaurant, there were 8 of us and nobody liked the food. Would not go back.
Lovely setting during nice weather. Food is good but not great -- also the service.
La Habichuela was a gem. Outdoor seating is highly recommend. Service was quick and the wait staff is extremely attentive. The mixed seafood appetizer and chicken in mole were delicious. The prices were reasonable, 10usd for apps and 30usd for entrees. Best meal I had in Cancun.
pictures are nice but in reality is a run down place, menu somewhat limited and expensive.
We expected a better experience based on other reviews. We were sat in an isolated location even though the restaurant had plenty of tables available. Pleasant service, but was just okay.
Great evening and great food...love sitting in the courtyard and enjoying the quiet evening !!
El Mezcal que nos ofrecieron estuvo excelente, de Primera!!
Excellent food and outstanding service from Juan, Santiago, Manny and all the busboys. Extremely attentive service, wonderful selection, preparation and presentation of food. We have been before and will return again and again. Thanks for the digestif drink from the boss who called himself “the dishwasher”
We had an amazing evening, the food was incredible as was the service. This was a wonderful experience- we will be back!!
We have been enjoying La Habichuela for 19 years.
Excellent in all categories. Loved it. Will be in Cancun for 2 weeks and will go again before we leave. Great find.
A more traditional roast-style menu which is great for when the temperature dips a little. Kitchen closes at 2300h so you should book no later than 2230h (1030pm). Overall a very nice experience.
We have been to La Habichuela - Centro many times as we enjoy the unique atmosphere and menu. In the past the service and food has been exceptional. This year was hopefully an exception to what we have come to expect. The two steaks were returned twice to be cooked correctly. The flaming kabobs were fair: the shrimp were ok but the beef was well done beyond taste. Moreover the service was impersonal and unaffected by the lack of presenting acceptable food.
My wife and adult children joined me for a nice dinner while we were visiting Cancun. My wife and I had been here before over 20 years ago. It was a really great experience both times
Visiting once is good
We arrived for a 6:00 PM reservation and were promptly seated in the outdoor garden - which is lovely.
Service started out as excellent - but deteriorated as more patrons were seated. By the end of the meal service was close to non-existent. We could not get the waiter to call a taxi - he just refused to do so.
The food was pretty good.
We started with the soft shell crab - which was excellent - highly recommended.
I than had the la famoso cocobichuela - which had large chunks of lobster and shrimp perfectly cooked - but I found the dish a bit too sweet for my tastes (the waiter never came by to enquirer how are food was).
If you are partial to a sweet meal, you will love this - otherwise try something else.
My wife had the whole freshly caught snapper, which was superb. Prepared absolutely perfect - could not have been better.
Wine was reasonably priced.
If the Service had been better, I would have given a higher overall rating.
Beautiful restaurant perfect for a special occasion, a romantic dinner. Excellent food and service!!
Perfect service and food.
Authentic Mexican experience!
Absolutely incredible flavor combinations and texture. The service was wonderful, we felt special and well taken care of. A definite must visit if you are in Cancun!
The ambiance in the outside garden is stunning. The food and service is wonderful. It is definitely a restaurant worth visiting!
We usually try to hit this restaurant each time we come to Cancun. As usual the food and service was excellent. Very attentive staff and the open air seating area creates a very beautiful spot for a meal. Very good selection on the menu and well priced for the type of restaurant.
Estuvimos en una reunión con un amigo colombiano y pudimos charlar muy bien en un ambiente súper agradable. Los alimentos con muy buen sabor, el pan es delicioso y la carta de vinos es pequeña, pero su precio menor que en otros
sitios. Tiene estacionamiento. Muy recomendable
Lovely setting and "Grand Old Lady" of an elegant restaurant living on its past. Overly attentive service at times. Food good.
LH Centro May be the best dining experience in Cancun. Beautiful outdoor dining in a spectacular courtyard with wonderfully prepared food and special service by Armando.
Note: this is in a very old section of Cancun - totally safe - but take a taxi to/from as the streets are very narrow and a bit confusing.
Fine food, ambiance and location. The Mayan Garden is lovely. A restaurant not to be missed for both the food and the scene.
Our 2nd time for our anniversary on our visits to the area. We hope to go back every year. I can't say enough about the comfort, service, pleasant staff and owner, food, drinks, and ambience.
Wonderful view of lagoon. Food was excellent but pricey.
