“Best in town!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2012

This is a great place for people watching. The food is great. Fresh, healthy, but also really tasty. We ate here on our way into town, on our way out and twice in between. If you don't mind a quick 5-10 minute walk down the beach, go to their sister restaurant at Ylang-Ylang Beach Resort. Same food, gorgeous views. Oh, the passionfruit juice is sublime!

“La Comida esta muy rica!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 13, 2012

Good times here at Sano Banano.
Great coffee and desserts. Oh my goodness the desserts!

The meals we had were very good as well. Much like every other place in Costa Rica, it was a little pricey for us budget travelers but this place was worth it.

The staff were very nice and helpful.
Movie nights were awesome.

Miss you Sano Banano!
