This restaurant was recommended to us by several people. It is an old establishment and the steaks are supposed to be the best in Managua. The steak was not exactly what I had in mind but it was tasty. The dinner as a whole was good and the wine list extensive. We enjoyed dinner at Los Ranchos.

Los Ranchos is one of the best restaurants in Nicaragua, Everything is good but specially the Churrasco. If you want to eat steaks go to Los Ranchos.

We were tired of Gallo pinto after 2 weeks in Nicaragua and Costa Rica and we saw the good reviews of this place so we decided to give it a try. It is quite expensive for what you get. The steak was good, not certainly the best I have had. The sides were fine nothing special. But the price really... More

We have eaten at Los Ranchos quite a few times, it is our favorite restaurant in Nicaragua. The steaks (churrascos) are cooked absolutely perfect and their service is very good. They are very attentive to the customers. If you are in Nicaragua for a few days, make sure not to miss this place.

We went there based on Trip advisor reviews which makes me wonder who is feeding into them as the food, if indeed it is rated one of the top 10 restaurants in Managua, it is underwhelming. The chirusco which everyone raved about was very average, the sides were second rate french fries and crispy plantains. Because we only had a... More

THE traditional Nicaraguan steakhouse. Frijolitos fritos amazing! & Churrasco is the go-to entree. w/chimichurri and I also ask for a side of salsa jalapeña to switch it up.

After hearing about this restaurant many times, we finally tried it on this trip. I was very disappointed with the quality of the meat served. It was not up to par with the ratings it has received. Come to find out later that the higher quality meat in Nicaragua is used for export.
