This restaurant is a hidden jewel. Quiet calm ambience, awesome house wines, gourmet but unpretentious. Staff friendly, professional, and treat you with dignified friendliness...they welcome you back.

Somehow we did not return to Santhinos last winter despite several delightful dinners in January 2013. We corrected our error this summer when we joined friends for dinner. Santhinos is hidden gem tucked into a small strip mall. You must not let the outside surroundings sway you away. The inside is warm and quiet with a perfect selection of light... More

We had dinner with friends last night and everything was absolutely delicious - from the appetizers to our wine selection and to the last bite of our entree's. Relaxing and welcoming atmosphere, fine dining at reasonable prices. The staff was very friendly, pleasant and attentive. We each selected something different from the menu and they were all delicious. A great... More

Santhinos is a terrific restaurant in the middle of a strip mall next to a bicycle shop. It's a classy place (linen tablecloths) with a wonderful menu. I had salmon - delicious - friends had grouper, also delicious. The cerviche is outstanding!!! Not to be missed nor is the desserts - coconut cake was yummy! Service was as good as... More

We chose Santhino's for our wedding dinner and could not be happier with that choice! From the first time we met with the owner, Brandan, he went above and beyond and then some! From searching the town for the best tuna for us, making a custom menu for our party, to serving us our dinners personally. There was nothing that... More

After surviving the worst Winter Minnesota has seen in 139 years we were able to come to some sunshine and couldn't wait to return to Santhinos. My Mom who turns 85 loves the "Classy" atmosphere. The food did not disappoint and the server was quick to accommodate our request to change sauce on a seafood dish. Being it is the... More

In our opinion Santhinos is the nicest restaurant in Punta Gorda. It is upscale and a tad on the pricey side but top flight. It has an excellent atmosphere since it is carpeted and pleasantly quiet. The food is very good and the service friendly and attentive. They still serve the Peruvian dishes that the original owners started and are... More
