Pancho's has great Mexican food. Everything we ordered was very good, and the service was fine. Mandy's Margarita's were the best in the area. Pancho's was a good stop -- good food and a great place to enjoy the tropical atmosphere of the Nosara area.

The overall experience at Poncho's is excellent- great food, great service, and reasonably priced. Mandi is an amazing waitress and bartender, and a major contributor to the laid back and inviting feel of the bar.
