The el sano banano restaurant is always great. the food is super fresh and well prepared. the veranda overlooking the only street scene/people watching available in Montezuma is comfortable and inviting. the rear gravel patio is more intimate and quiet. The service is attentive, competent and friendly.

Couldn't ask for a better service or food! The place was really nice and comfortable. Wish I had the chance to go back there another time! Hope I will get the chance to!

Fun place and good food. Located in this funy town called Montezuma. A modern Hippie town with an awesoem waterfall. We had pasta and chicken.

When my family and I visited Montezuma, I recommended some of the restaurants that had high ratings. It was on this basis, that we went into El Sano Banano.On seeing the menu, my sons commented "Dad, What have you gotten us into? Just about all they have is vegan stuff".

Our room didn't smell so good or have any toiletries. On the flip side, the restaurant is really good (food and service) and they have movies every night.
