An iconic restaurant in Nicaragua

If you visit Nicaragua I's a must that you go to Los Ranchos, this place has been around for decades and the food it's always excellent. The churrasco and las puntas de filete are amazing. But the best of all are the smashed beans with cheese and plantains... wow

The churrasco steak is the best in Managua. One of the oldest steak houses in Managua with a very relaxed atmosphere and 3 waiters attending to your every need. The even fill your glass up with ice when your drink is running low. Bottle service is the best.

Nicaragua has amazing grass fed beef and some great steak houses. Los Ranchos leads the pack by having an attentive staff and owner making sure all is running smoothly over seeing the goings on in the restaurant. The fries are always hot, the mashed potatoes are buttery, and meats are made to order. The house salad is a basic iceberg... More

We live in Managua and like many of you reading this have eaten all over the world. Los Ranchos is a Nicaraguan steak house. They do have other items on the menu but it would be like going to a fine Italian eatery and ordering a grilled cheese sandwhich. It may be a bit more $ than other "local" places... More

The steak is actually "very good" at this restaurant. I also tried their white rice al ajillo which was "very good" as well. I truly enjoyed my meal.

The Churrasco steak was flavorful and tender. Although it is a thin cut, our orders for medium and medium-rare were spot on. Choices of 8, 12 or 16 ounces for this cut. A couple can share the 12 or 16 ounce cuts. The sides are okay. Small but flavorful salad, french fries, rice, and bread are all included in the... More

Tender beef meat, great steak. More veggies and less carbohydrates will improve the experience to higher standards. Good place for business lunch or dinner. Great to have good restaurants such as this one in the old Managua.
