“Great food - good price.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2013

We had lunch there several times on a recent 5 day visit to Montezuma. Food was great, staff was very friendly. Great movies in the evening.
Try the frozen lemonade - it is awesome.

“Cold food-not good!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2013

We were tired after a day driving to get to montezuma...we found this place-the waiter was absolutely lovely and offered us happy hours drinks and also the food menu! Drinks were good but the food was cold and not really cooked...the burritos really were just wraps with red sauce on-very disappointing and certainly not cheap!

“Great weekend stay!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2013

I stayed a weekend in El Sano Banano in July as a solo traveler. It was exactly what I was looking for. The room was very clean and comfortable. The bed was nice and the AC kept the room nice and cool. The service was also great, friendly staff and security guard at night.

The food in the restaurant was delicious, the smoothies, coffee drinks, and cocktails were all great. The free breakfast was nice, banana pancakes on morning and huevos rancheros another with coffee. I would stay there again in a heartbeat, Montezuma was a blast!

“Good food!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2013

Atmosphere is nice in the back. Watch out for the fire ants, though. A guy named Enrique played a few songs for us which made dinner even more enjoyable. Best dish there was the pescado del dia casado.
