This place was recommended to us, and I'm glad we choose to take the suggestion! We were the only people at the restaurant, which was weird, but chalked out up to being a Tuesday night. We started with the fried green plantains with a bean dip. It came out with 5 patties that were about 3-4 inches on diameter. The... More

Rancho Leon boasts a variety of menu options. We ate here for breakfast and dinner and all meals were tasty! The pork sandwich topped with coleslaw was amazing. The service was fast, friendly and attentive.

We were recommended to go here from Mark with Mar1 Sport Fishing and what a place, the food was amazing and the Service was off the charts. It was a little pricey compared to some of the other Local spots but worth every colony

We were staying outside Quepos and didn't feel like going into town for dinner (it's crazy there!) so we went with a hotel recommendation and visited Rancho Leon. It was just a mile away and looked ok from the road. We went in and were pleasantly greeted by Mauricio? He was genuinely attentive and able to explain to us what... More

We stopped here for lunch and had the typical Casada dishes - rice, beans, plantains, peppers, and grilled chicken pieces, which were delicious. And very reasonably priced. Service was a bit slow, mainly because it was a busy place.

Food was ok and price not that cheap. A group of 20 people was eating so food take for ever to get our food. But what more bother us is to they didn't like us there can be because we flamboyant gays or because they was extra busy. No an smile, no decent service.

We were told by our local guide, Johan Chaves (Great Guide for Manuel Antonio Park) that Rancho Leon was a good place and boy was he right. It was a hot day and we had just finished a long walk when we rolled into the restaurant which was close to our hotel (Kayak Lodge which is also a nice place... More

Shrimp and rice was over-cooked Burger was good, not great. Service was slow but we weren't in a hurry so we really didn't mind. The... More

We stopped here because we were in a traffic jam and decided to have some lunch. This place was delicious and relaxing and had great service! We made the effort to return on our way out of Quepos and the server remembered us. The food was just as good the second time. The price was also very reasonable. I can... More
