Habaneros, now closed, was a family-run restaurant as part of a small franchise chain and was originally named Hernando's Hideaway. Some of the franchisees decided to break from the chain and on Wellington Street the owners renamed theirs Habaneros. The food had somewhat declined from...More

The food is quite authentic tasting Mexican. I don't go out of my way to go here when I'm in Toronto, but I am never disappointed when I do go. Great place to go with friends who like spicy food and Margaritas.

I enjoy Mexican food and this place is really terrible. What more can I say. I tried it twice because it's close to my work and I came to same conclusion. If you want good Mexican food, avoid this place.

Very noisy place, as it became busy it was difficult to hold a conversation. Food service was very slow. No complimentary nachos and salsa. We ordered the app size nachos and were disappointed with the chips, average at best. Food was just okay. Rice tasted...More

The server was really nice and friendly, but the food was just tasteless. We had a great table overlooking the quiet street below. wouldn't go again because of the food, sadly,

Have eaten here several times over the past 10 years, and it is good, but not the best Mexican food in Toronto. That distinction used to be long to Viva Zapata, which closed long ago, so I'm still searching for "the best" and haven't yet...More

I have always considered myself to be an 'easy-to-please' customer, having never had a negative experience dining out in thirty years but Hernado's Hideaway left me feeling as though I had been mugged. The staff is welcoming enough but the menu is filled with overpriced,...More

Overpriced for sure. Two taco plates, one margarita, $49. Very average food, atmosphere was just average too. Margarita came in a tall glass with ice cubes...I don't know, I guess we were expecting a lot more. We love Mexican cuisine...this just wasn't it. Sorry.

Not a great restaurant, but fair quality food with very friendly and helpful service. Close to everything in downtown Toronto. If you like Tex-Mex downtown Toronto, not a bad choice.

At the heart of Toronto, Downtown is the destination
for cheap eats and fast fashion. Cut through by hip
and trendy Yonge Street, the vibe here is young, with
a strong student influence from the Ryerson University
Campus. As a result, the Downtown area is always in
flux: undergoing the construction of new facilities,
with fresh retail spaces and pop-up cafes. Home to
