We heard Sancho's had the best tacos, so we had to find out for ourselves! All twelve of us loved our food. Not only did we have the fish tacos, but the other food on the menu was great. The view on the back porch...More

Fish tacos were great. Pico and quac really nice as well and kids loved the quesadilla and chicken tacos. Only issue was that the staff seemed way less than thrilled with their jobs but food got to us quick and was delicious.

Came here for lunch after a morning at the beach. Ordered chips and guac, and an assortment of tacos to share. All were excellent, especially the fish! This is a must stop here place when visiting MA.

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
