We went there for dinner. It's one of the cheapest restaurants we've found but althought it was super delicious and the portions were soo big. The stuff was very friendly and the food arrived quickly.

If you've ever had very good Mexican food (which I had) this place seems average to you otherwise you'll be happy with the food. Fish tacos were descent but the rice and beans didn't taste good. The pico de gallo was amazing but the Guac...More

My family had dinner at Sancho's twice on our nine day trip to Costa Rica. The food was great. Guacamole and Pico where fresh. I recommend the Chile verde enchiladas. It was always pretty busy but they seated us immediately. Busy usually means that the...More

Great food, great view off the back deck too. Fish tacos, burritos, great house made tortilla chips and friendly to kids. This is a winner.

We decided to give this place a try for a quick snack, the tacos are quite good, not as "Mexican" as we would like, but it's hard to please people that live in and are from Mexico. The back patio is a very nice place...More

Super casual with dive bar feel. Great Mexican food for a low key meal. Fish tacos are as good as everyone said they would be.

One of the best meals we had in Manuel Antonio and Quepos. Good price for a touristy area and nice variety of Mexican food.

Wow, Cathy, even though I don't drink Margaritas, I'm surprised I don't know the answer that question. Sorry I can't help. Great spot though.

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
