I could eat this every day. Try the pulled pork marinated in green salsa and then smothered in it. So delicious.. And huge portion. I'm sorry I didn't take a picture I was too busy wolfing it down.

Great atmosphere and great food. Got to watch college football on there flat screens, eat delicious food, and enjoy the view outside. (Wet burrito, Taco Mae with Carne Asada, Taquitos, and Nachos) all awesome and the house pitchers of margaritas are amazing and freshly squeezed. We went back 3 times.

We asked around for a great lunch spot and this did not disappoint. Fantastic guacamole and pico plus the fish tacos and taco mexicano with chili verde were outstanding. Imperials were exceptionally cold too. Don't miss this one.

If you are visiting Manuel Antonio, SANCHOS is a must on your itinerary. We can begin with the amazing view outside on the back deck along with the great vibes throughout the place. The staff is extremely friendly and the owner regulates his restaurant to make sure everyone is satisfied. The food is delicious and the nachos are to die... More

I recently visited Sancho's with three of my girlfriends and was blown away by their menu and bar! I love tacos and have high standards, Sancho's has the BEST tacos! I had a few items off their menu other than tacos and everything tasted awesome. They don't skip you on the tequila in the margaritas either. I highly recommend visiting... More

The tacos are good and give good value for money, but the staff didn't even look at us as we entered and looked for eye contact and awaited instructions, and the food took forever after we finally got to order. The fish tacos are spicy unless you ask for non-spicy, and then they are served completely dry without any sauce.

The wait was long. It took a while to get the menus, and the wait to get the food was excruciatingly long. It wasn't busy at all so we really couldn't understand why. The food was super spicy so we ordered an extra portion that would not be spicy, and instead we got a taco with just the meat, there... More

Description
When we sat down and discussed the menu for Sancho's we agreed the menu had to have 3 things; fresh ingredients, big portions, and in a country where we believe things to be a little bit on the expensive side, fair priced meals. As far as the type of food we serve, people say Mexican, I say Mexican inspired. We make food we enjoy in hopes that our guests feel the same way. A lot of preparation and love goes into each dish that comes out of our kitchen. A majority of our meals do have some level of spiciness to them, if that is your thing give us a try. We have a full bar, we make fresh margaritas, no artificial sour mix in our drinks. Sancho's is a laid back vibe, feel free to come in after the beach and not have to worry about a dress code. We hope you give our little restaurant a try while you are in Manuel Antonio.

P.S Coldest beers in town
