“Great Breakfast”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 12, 2013

This was by far our best breakfast during our trip to Costa Rica. The typical Costa Rican breakfast (eggs, rice, beans, corn tortillas, and plantains) was just what we were looking for. All while watching monkeys play. Great spot!

“Brownies and shakes”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 2, 2013

If you ever sit down and order at El Sano Banano, you must have place in your belly for shakes and or the warm brownies with ice cream, the best of the best - silly good! Food over all is good at El Sano. Staff nice.
Things to improve, bath rooms. Otherwise a pearl on the street for goodies.

“Great food.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 14, 2012

I stayed here one night and had a spacious room, albeit a little noisy outside . The free breakfast was very good, excellent coffee too.

“Another winner in Montezuma”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 11, 2012

The service here, and the courtyard and it's monkey visitors keep me coming back to this restaurant. We love coming for movie night and relaxing over dinner and enjoying Montezuma's only cinematic offering. Sana Banano is one one the few places in Montezuma that takes credit cards, but it does have slightly higher prices than similar places in town.Compared to the states though, it remains a great value and a lovely place to dine.

“Movie and a Meal”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 11, 2012

This is really hte only full service multi option restaurant in Montezuma. You get a movie with your dinner. Just don't have high hopes for the movie. Remmber that many of the places in town do not have TV in the rooms, nor much in the terms of internet connections. So this movie is it.

Now the food is good. The portions are large. And overall we would give the place a 4.
