We ate at Sano Banano a couple of times and had drinks and watched the "Soccer" match when C.R. won! It's a great location and you can eat inside or out. Outside at night they have very nice lighting and great music.

Good food with excellent options for vegetarian people. The breakfast is included if you stay at the hotel. Also I enjoy the diary movie nights, starting at 7:30 pm excellent while you're enjoying your food. Food is a lil bit expensive but food in Montezuma is so the price is OK considering the size of the portion. The staff are... More

I had the fish and my girlfriend had the nachos. Both of our meals were excellent! The servers were very friendly and courteous. Unfortunately we tried this place on our last night in town. We would have eaten here several more times if we knew ow good it was.

This restaurant is directly connected to the Ylang-Ylang resort we stayed in, in Montezuma. The food is PHENOMENAL, staff OUTSTANDING. When we weren't at the Ylang-Ylang eating, we were here. Fresh, delicious awesomeness everytimewe went. Can't recommend them enough.

This isn't a review I want to write, but feel inclined to do so after this evening. My boyfriend and I read several reviews on Trip Advisor and decided El Sano Banano was our spot for a low key date night. We arrived at 7ish for the movie and ordered a Margarita to start. It was a solid drink and... More

A great variety of food - seafood especially! The patio seating in the back is where it's at. Candlelit tables and tree lights make for a relaxing meal experience. The staff is very friendly and you'll get your occasional grasshopper that wants to eat with you at the table, that's ok. There usually are movie nights every night that is... More

The menu offers a wide variety of fresh and healthy options. We ordered drinks, an appetizer and two main dishes. All of them were tasty, nicely presented and provided filling portions. We only stayed in Montezuma for two days and ate two meals here, so that tells you something! The best part of the restaurant was the service. Our waiter,... More

We liked our meals and drinks and wifi.The ice tea and Thai curry were different and tasty. This is a nice place to stop for a rest and meal. We sat outdoors and came back a second time during our three day stay.
