NileGuide Expert tip:
Try one of the tequila flights. They carry some of the best producers in the country.
Canadian expatriate restaurateur Tadd Chapman deserves credit for creating two of the signature fine dining experiences in San Jose del Cabo: Habanero's and Don Sanchez. Habanero's Gastro Grill and Tequila Bar doesn't have the Cuban jazz band that so distinguishes Don Sanchez, but the restaurant does feature a rich selection of delicious dishes from their generous menu, as well as an airy and contemporary Mexican ambiance. They are open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, with signature dishes anchoring each meal menu. No breakfast is complete, for example, without sampling one of their great eggs benedict dishes. Lunch standouts include shrimp, sundried tomato, and basil quesadillas, and the chipotle tequila BBQ baby back ribs. For dinner, try the surf and turf for two, roasted pork loin, or their exceedingly tender filet mignon. The wine list spans the globe, with quality selections from a number of premium producers, and options by the glass or bottle at several price points. They also have some of the best top-shelf tequilas and handcrafted cocktails in all of Los Cabos. Tequila Lounge favorites include fresh mint mojitos, Habanero's bloody caesar, the aptly named paralyser, or one of their tequila tasting flights. Flights highlight benchmark Mexican producers like Don Julio, 7 Leguas, Maestro Tequilero, Chinaca, and Arette.
