The food here was delicious and the owner (I think he was the owner) was very friendly and probably an ex-pat American (ie: no problems communicating if you only speak English and have for some reason decided that you won't even attempt to speak rudimentary Spanish or point at pictures in a menu). We ate our food at the back,... More

We ordered takeout from Sanchos after a long day spent outside hiking and at the beach. We ordered a wet burrito, 2 fish tacos, 2 pulled pork tacos, a quesadilla and small chips and queso for $25.00. The fish tacos were really good. I would recommend them. They forgot to include our wet burrito so my husband was without his... More

I'm sorry this was your experience with us. Please next time call, we would have been happy to remedy the situation. We sure do not like our guests being dissapointed with us, nothing worse then not getting what you ordered. But a simple call would have fixed everything. Again sorry this was your experience. More

Stumbled upon this restaurant and so glad we did. The food was delicious, the views were outstanding and the waiter was a delight. Ignacio took care of us and not only took great care of our needs, he was a treat to speak with about both Costa Rican things as well as American. The margarita's are delicious. Fresh - not... More

The first thing I tried there was their blackberry margarita and it was Incredible! Not like a stereotypical margarita with artificial sour mix and blackberry syrup added to it, their mix is so refreshing with muddled blackberries and they top it off with fresh lemonade to give it a perfect sweetness. (And they don't skimp on the tequila haha) Definitely... More

Great taste and hearty portions, at a comfortable price. Mexican food as it should be. Get there early for the limited balcony, sea view dining.
