Enjoyed our supper at Sanchos! We received a friendly greeting at the front door and were able to find a nice spot with an ocean view at the counter in the back of the restaurant. We both ordered a wet burrito - meat and fish. Both were very flavourful and filling. Service was friendly and fast and the restaurant was... More

Sanchos is the sh%t. They have the best quality and priced mexican food in MA. The Taco Mae and the fish tacos are a favorite. Also their burrito can feed you for two meals. Shout out to Karen in the kitchen makin all the magic happen.

My wife and I stopped into Sancho's Mexican restaurant for a late lunch based on TripAdvisor reviews and we weren't disappointed. Bar style restaurant, lots of tv's for sports fans. We picked a couple of seats outside at the back patio overlooking the countryside....what a beautiful view. Our server was friendly and had no hesitation to admit one order of... More

Sancho's was nearby and was recommended by our concierge. We were told the wet burrito and blackberry margarita were the things to order. We ordered both chicken and beef burritos and both were good but the chicken one had more flavor. I think their regular margaritas were better then the special. Only thing we were disappointed in was the pitcher... More

I walked up and down the main drag of MA looking for the Dallas Cowboys game on TV, and Sanchos has all the games on dish. Got a plate of nachos and they were excellent and it was enough nachos to feed about 3 people it was so big

Thank you so much for the support of Sanchos while you were visiting Manuel Antonio. I am sorry we were closed on Sunday, we usually are open 7 days a week, but decided to give our staff January 1st off so they could enjoy the New Year with their families. We hope you have a Happy New Year as well.... More

Good fish tacos and guacamole, I had a carnitas quesadilla that was very good. Would have preferred a bit more salsa or maybe some hot sauce but kind of nit picky. Saw a three two sloth from veranda while having a few beers and our little snack. The quesadilla can be split as an appetizer for two if not too... More

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.

P.S Coldest beers in town
