Nice local Parilla. Good Steaks. Not the best service.

Mi Rancho is a nice little local parilla in town. If the weather is nice try an outdoor picnic table. The food was very good and overall was a a good choice except that our waiter needed to be told to slow down as he was rushing us a bit. This is not usual in Argentina, where they let you... read more

Came here after reading rave reviews. Service was nice, but food was far from what we expected. We ordered beef and lamb steaks. Beef was over cooked with a dry potato. Lamb was ok, with Rissoto that was also not more than ok. Sad to give a bad report, but some improvement to the food quality is needed in our... More

Host used to play soccer and is a very nice host. Felt well attended all the way. The place is very cosy, with definitely a homely feel. Table was booked and ready on arrival.

This place is a gem in a city that doesn't have the greatest food. Mi Rancho is a really cute, quaint restaurant with great service and even better food. The empanadas were some of the best I had in Argentina and the wine was great too.

Very cozy restaurant. On the outside you'd think it's an old house. I'm writing this review after spending three weeks in Argentina and we've had quite some steaks in high rated restaurants (according to TripAdvisor) around the country, and I can say that personally I've had the best bife de Lomo at Mi Rancho. Ps. Make sure to make a... More

We had Osobuco with risotto and I have to say that was outstanding. We had to come back to try again. The flavours are great. I recommend!!!

My husband and I came here without a reservation and were still able to snag a table. I don't recommend coming without a reservation though unless you're willing to eat on the earlier side, which is what we did. The food was fantastic. We split empanadas and the homemade pasta stuffed with lobster meat. Both dishes were delicious but the... More
