“Good not amazing.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 12, 2011

Great place to get fresh squeezed orange juice in the morning. I loved the betidos here. We sat outside and the cigarette smoke from the other tables and the dust and exhaust from the trucks outside really crushed our experience. The service was painfully slow and not particularly kid friendly.

“Great Little Restaurant, resonable prices!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 28, 2011

First let me say that if you go to El Sano Banano and want a great dining experience then make sure you eat outside in the patio! We started inside and quickly moved outside when we realized that the wildlife was right outside the door. Iguana, red squirrels, birds including a bunch of these birds that resemble Bluejays we have in Louisiana but with a plume or crown on top of thier heads. We put had a left over piece of garlic toast with guacamole on it and we had like 10 of them around for our enjoyment and photo ops. As for the food it is really good. The Sushi was amazing and we did have one problem when I ordered the garlilc toast and Guacamole, I was telling the waiter that I had four people from my group on my tab but he brought out 4 orders of toast and Guac. That's a lot for even 8 people. Yes they don't serve beer but there is a grocery right next door and they let you bring it in. Wanted to try a few restaurants but we were so full from this one we never did. Pura Vida!

“Great food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2011

Such a varied menu. No beer but they serve wine. They serve three meals a day and the prices are pretty average. Don't miss this one!
