we thoroughly enjoyed the tacos at this eatery- low key, laid back, great tacos- I imagine that the bar is hopping with the younger crowd- loved it! "Don't do drugs, eat tacos!"

Some of the best pico I've had. And I swear, the tostada was stacked 3 inches tall. The prices were way lower than I would except for the quality and amount of food. The staff was also wonderful, really above and beyond. My picky kid...More

I'm only giving it 3 stars because the food is clean/ok quality, but overall taste and vibe is below average. If you've had authentic Mexican, don't expect anything close to real Mexican food. They didn't have guacamole, used queso instead of real cheese, zero locals,...More

The best quesadillas (carne asada) and enchiladas! You don't want to miss out when you visit Manuel Antonio!

Delicious food and large portions. Prices are comparable to U.S. prices. Staff are very nice and helpful, some speak excellent English.

When we sat down and discussed the menu for Sancho's we agreed the menu had to have 3 things; fresh ingredients, big portions, and in a country where we believe things to be a little bit on the expensive side, fair priced meals. As far as the type of food we serve, people say Mexican, I say Mexican inspired. We make food we enjoy in hopes that our guests feel the same way. A lot of preparation and love goes into each dish that comes out of our kitchen. A majority of our meals do have some level of spiciness to them, if that is your thing give us a try. We have a full bar, we make fresh margaritas, no artificial sour mix in our drinks. Sancho's is a laid back vibe, feel free to come in after the beach and not have to worry about a dress code. We hope you give our little restaurant a try while you are in Manuel Antonio.
