Charming, quaint, different and managed by an interesting owner. This place was packed when we were there - we hardly got a table. It seems that it's very popular and deservedly so: The food was great and the whole atmosphere around it was equally nice. I think you can't do much better in El Calafate, so you should definitely put... More

Mi Rancho is a cozy little restaurant tucked away in a quiet street in El Calafate, but it's definitely worth seeking out. The food was very good indeed (I had soup followed by gnocchi; the other half had salad & steak) - we enjoyed all our courses. And the service was also excellent; the waiter (is he the owner?) was...

I was disappointed by Tablita the night before, so took no risk and went for the best restaurant on Tripadvisor and I was not disappointed by mi Rancho. The lamb on funghi risoto was superb. Nice service. Good music. In this small house that gives it character. I went early (8pm) to be sure to have a table without reservation... More

Maybe I was with big expectations but I felt this restaurante quite average. The food it´s good in deed but not superb. The wine selection is also good. The service I would say it´s average. It´s a traditional place little bit more sofisticated however has not surprised me at all.

Had a delightful dinner here while visiting El Calafate. The food was delicious and fresh. Located in an old house, this establishment offers a pleasant menu with many items made it its wood fired oven. Suggest making a reservation as this location is not very big.

We loved this little off-the-beaten path small restaurant. It fills up fast. So reserve if you can. The food was delicious, the ambience tasteful, precious and authentic to the area, and the owner is very concerned with assuring every detail meets your satisfaction. Loved our experience here. Calamare app, oso, lomo, you name it, it's delicious and a steal for... More

Agree with most of the other reviews on Trip Advisor. This was one of our best meals on our trip to the Patagonia region. Great ambience, great service and delicious food. We got the lamb and the steak. A lot of the restaurants look like they have good steak from the outside but fail. Mi Rancho lives up to the... More

A couple blocks off the main drag (thankfully) lies this small historic home that serves extraordinary cuisine at fair prices. Not all menu items are five star, but the real winners were the osso buco, lamb ravioli, lomo and lamb stew. We also enjoyed the sweetbreads appetizer, which was a first for us. The house wine (Malbec de la casa)... More

The restaurant is very small, with few tables, which makes it easier for the owner to give more atention to customers. Very nice and cozy. Small list of wines but well picked. For starters we had the empanada and the calamares, very good. As a main we had the costeletas de cordero with mushrooms risotto. The risotto was too heavy... More
