“Dad, What have you gotten us into?”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2012

When my family and I visited Montezuma, I recommended some of the restaurants that had high ratings. It was on this basis, that we went into El Sano Banano.On seeing the menu, my sons commented "Dad, What have you gotten us into? Just about all they have is vegan stuff". Since we are not vegetarians, many of the offerings had little appeal. We opted for the special, which was a fish dish and ended up being very tasty. The service was good. Like many of the restaurants in Montezuma, the facilities were dimly lit, which takes a little getting used to. Although we enjoyed the food, it was not our favorite or one that we would want to return to.

“Delicious fish”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2012

For chicken and fish dishes, this was a wonderful place. They do not serve any other meats. They also have a good breakfast menu, but we wanted bacon with our meal, so we didn't eat there.

“Bad room. Good restaurant.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2012

Our room didn't smell so good or have any toiletries. On the flip side, the restaurant is really good (food and service) and they have movies every night.

“Healthy, fresh, good”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2012

We had the avocado sandwich and the tuna steak sandwich. Both good, but not inexpensive. The restaurant is interesting and in a good location. They also show movies at night, if you need something to do.
