We sat outside and enjoyed our delicious burritos. Great service, good food, good price. Definitely worth stopping at if you want a good burrito.

This looked a little rowdy from the outside but we were made to feel welcome. No frills but good food! Mexican menu, can recommend the fish tacos and margaritas. No air con so can get a little sweaty.

We wanted a quick, good meal. The staff (all Americans, I think) was friendly and the food was great. We loved the carne asada and Mexican tacos, fish tacos, and the nachos.

Not even close to real Mexican food. They were out of carne asada, so i got pork...and it tasted like starkist tuna in agua. Mojito wasnt mixed; bars shouldnt serve incomplete drinks. It is like serving food not cooked all the way or filling not put on the tortilla. Big disappointment (it is also gringo land i there)

The staff was wonderfully friendly, the view (while not an ocean view) was just a beautiful, and the food was great! Super reasonably priced too! Definitely a great option in the Manuel Antonio option.

Checked out Sancho's because we were craving tacos on the first night of our trip and heard this was the spot... we ended up there 4 nights in a row! The bartenders and staff remembered our names and drinks after one night, we felt like locals. By the way, these tacos are legit and cheap

Felt like I was at home at a restaurant in Leucadia. We had to get our Cali Mex fix and Sanchos was just the place. Huge burritos, live music and cold beer. Heaven!

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.
