“the first time I had excellent service and food combined in Costa Rica”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2013

I've been in CR for a month and this was the first time I had both excellent food and excellent service (with English as well!). They have movies every night as an added bonus, good ones.

“plenty of choices- especially for good desserts!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

lots on the menu to choose from. We went for dinner and had a Costa Rican rice and chicken dish and fish. The seasonings were delicious! The fish a bit over cooked but I found that at most of the restaurants in Montezuma.

The atmosphere in the back area was great not so crowded and breezy. Staff was friendly and helpful.

“Good Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2013

We had a very nice meal at El Sanso Banano. We sat outside amidst the trees and dimly lit back "yard" of the restaurant. We all ordered casadas and had an appetizer of fried plantains. The casadas here were substantially more than you'd pay at one of the Sodas nearby, however, the service was exceptionally friendly and still, for dinner and drinks for 4 we paid substantially less than you'd pay most anywhere in the US. They also take credit cards.
