Delicious food and awesome service! Enchiladas were yummy. Great place if you are looking for fish tacos, or a Taqueria with typical Mexican food.

Sancho's is the best deal on the the Manuel Antonio hill. Good food and great prices, hard to beat. Chips and Salsa were A Plus.

There are many great things about Costa Rica, Mexican food is not one of them; Sanchos is the exception to this rule ! This amazing cantina serves up giant burritos, fish tacos, chile verde, and nachos that are as good as any I have ever had anywhere. The Home made chips, salsa, and guacamole, are exceptional and are best enjoyed... More

On the main road this is a basic little place with none of the bells and whistles like views but the food is very good. No waiters you just look at the menu and order at the counter. The chips with salsa and guacamole is very good. Salsa and Guacamole made fresh . Our kids shared the taco plate with... More

Came here twice. Friday night and Sunday afternoon. Both times closed. So never was able to eat here. My review is simply don't make plans here without figuring out if they are open.

I have had lunch at Sanchos on two occasions and they have really good Mexican food. I had a couple of different types of tacos and enjoyed them all. The prices are very reasonable with good service. If you are in the mood for some Mexican food while in Manuel Antonio, go to Sanchos.

We craved Mexican food on a recent trip to MA, Costa Rica and Sancho's hit the spot. Unfortunately, our first attempt to eat here was unsuccessful as the owner later informed us he generally closes on the weekends to spend time with his family. Completely understandable, but we wished we had known he was closed before we walked there ready... More

We loved the fish tacos here, the mahi mahi was fresh and all the flavours came together very well. Nachos were freshly made and super tasty even without salsa. The owner is really friendly and food came out pretty fast. Also prices were very reasonable, great value on the set meals. We shared one and left very full!

Very good food! We got two orders of fish tacos (w/ rice and beans) and an order of chicken taquitos to go. They were so friendly and the food was very good! Fresh-made chips (yum!) and the tacos were also super fresh! Being from San Diego, I have exceptionally high standards for fish tacos and these were good (not quite... More
