We asked one of the Animation team at our hotel (Alan at Riu Yucatan) for a nice Mexican restaurant downtown. He advised us to go to Los Rancheros & we are so grateful for his recommendation! First of all the staff are extremely friendly. Asking if you would like to be sat inside / outside with street view or somewhere... More

We ate at Los Rancheros a few nights ago. It seemed like a nice place at first. They caught us on the street, asked us to come in, showed us pictures on the door etc. I was a little weary because if someone is begging you to come in, it seems a little odd. I was told that was common... More

I absolutely loved the food. I got a make your own taco dish with chicken. The chicken, onions, cheese and pepper came in a hot black bowl. There was some juice at the bottom. It was one of the best Mexican lunches I have ever had.

Very nice dinning experience, great atmosphere. We were impressed that the manager was active with waiter staff on the floor and with diners. It showed pride in his restaurant and he enjoyed keeping diners satisfied. He made the experience fun without being overbearing. The food was excellent, particularly the steak rellano. Margarita's were very good!

We've been here a few times and we will be back. This year, the family ordered a 2 person meal (times 4) that included BBQ ribs, chicken and beef skewers, fajitas and so much more. They also made guacamole at our table, we had chips, our own plate of rice and I can't even remember everything else. There were 11... More

Nice Mexican restaurant with a variety of dishes to choose. The appetizers are in big portions so you can share. We ordered squid rings that were really good and the dressing was exquisite!! The shrimps we ordered later were HUGE! and really well seasoned, I would recommend the ones with coconut, they have a unique flavour and it's a dish... More
