Every time we come to Ensenada we stop into Sano's either for a meal or a delicious margarita. The bartender Diego so super friendly and is a free-lance mixologist.

What a wonderful day we had.. From the moment we walked in, we were greeted like old friends and shown a booth to relax. Discovering that the bar was open we decided to have cocktails in this contemporary yet warm lounge. Our bartender suggested martinis and provided the most adorable 'personal martini bucket' just for me. Our hostess took photos... More

This Place first off was awsome from the front desk hostess to the very end the waiter. The food was delish and the service was awsome this is a must stop if your visiting Ensenada for the awsome steaks and pastas and wines. The house wine is a must try.

On a last minute whim decided to drive down from Los Angeles to Ensenada. Got into town and got my hotel room and asked if the hotel receptionist could check and see what restaurant were opened this Christmas night as it was about 7 PM. After she called around for a good 45 minutes she found and recommended Sano's. A... More

Even though my party of six did not have a reservation (during the very busy Christmas week) we were fortunate to be seated fairly quickly after enjoying a quick cocktail in the elegant lounge. As always we were warmly greeted at the door by the exceptional staff of SANO's. The restaurant was a bit crowded as usual but the food... More

I have been going there for years and this is definitely one of the very best in the area. Definitely the very best for red meat. The restaurant has a wide selection of meat coming from both USA and Mexico depending on which is the best cut. The ribeye original cut is my favorite. The older waitress there is absolutely...

This is one of our new favorite places in Enseanda. The bartender Diego is the MAN and makes a really great margarita. He is very very knowledgeable about their local craft beers as well as a talented mixologist. I have only eaten their salads and their fresh fish which is served with brown rice and roasted vegetables. Generally I have... More

We live in Rosarito Mx and have been to Sanos many times. We returned there after not visiting for about two years. (We were making the rounds through many good restaurants in Guadalupe Valley). We were disappointed. The aged rib eye in the past as outstanding. Now the rib eye was tender but it was not aged. The clam chowder... More
