“Great Restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2014

This was a very good restaurant it had inside and outside dining. The staff was very friendly and knowledgeable, something you don't find in a lot of restaurants.

“Nice outdoor setting Good Food.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2014

We had a great meal here after a long day of Hiking and Beach Hopping! Good Nachos, Smoothies and local Tico fare. We had three desserts and they were all very good. This is not cheap but fair price for very good service and good size portions.

“Overpriced, overrated, NOT good”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2014

We stopped by to have a coffee and tea, a brownie and a piece of chocolate cake. All latter three were a disaster! The water they use must terrible at least from what the black tea tasted. Both the cakes were dry like hell, literally without taste, but instead $3 each! Never again, not even for their evening movie screenings.

“Good food, reasonable prices, great atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2014

We ate at Sano Banano a couple of times and had drinks and watched the "Soccer" match when C.R. won! It's a great location and you can eat inside or out. Outside at night they have very nice lighting and great music.
