Worth a visit. Not overrated

Nice warm bread to start. My girlfriend orders the pasta. The pasta is one of the best I've had. I live in São Paulo and have access to great Italian, and this place is probably better. The lamb with risotto was also outstanding. Ordered the creme brûlée for dessert and was a little disappointed... read more

We enjoyed our first meal here so much that we went back for more! Delicious food (steak was unbelievable, shrimp/calamari starters were also lovely and great dessert menu) and prompt service. Small restaurant with a lovely atmosphere. Would gladly go again!

A small but warm and friendly restaurant you have to visit. We booked this place purely from recommendation of Trip Advisor. It's only 2 blocks from where we stay. Food is very good. Very friendly and understanding service that exceed our expectaions. Make sure you have room for dessert, you don't want to miss it.

This tiny family owned restaurant served the best food across two countries we visited on our trip, including 5* hotels. We had two dinners here and the lamb and lomo steaks and deserts were unforgettable. I would not say that lamb stew was excellent in comparison, but it was very flavorful. All other restaurants in Calafate looked very average but... More

This is a small pretty restaurant. Friendly warm ambient made us very comfortable. Dishes are quite reasonable and good taste. Especially we pretty much satisfied with whole things because it was not a one what is called "just for tourist type".

The owner is very welcoming, know English well, the place is very nice and clean. The food: I order the chicken dish. It was deligthful! I will defiantly recommend! The price is not too expensive for that kind of restaurant.

We really enjoyed dinner here, one of us had the lamb stew and the other had a pork dish. Both were excellent - the lamb stew was so good that when we came back to El Calafate 3 nights later, we ordered the lamb stew and the trout. Have to say as a fly fisher, the trout was beautiful, moist... More

Met the expectations, ravioli was delicious. Staff was very friendly, and served sides were tasty. Only slight annoyance was the amount of people coming in to ask for a table, while it was booked out, perhaps they should put up a sign or something.

A very cute little place that had a warm atmosphere. Quite literally, it was downright hot as the traditional clay oven took up half of the kitchen. The salad was interesting as there was a list of ingredients you could chose from, but you were limited to three choices. We chose beets, carrots and onions and found out the hard... More

Belated review: we actually went to Mi Rancho in March 2013 but forgot to review until now. Food and service was excellent but the highlight was when all of the ATMs in town broke down and I only had half the bill in cash. The owner not only didn't mind but he shouted us free desserts and sat down to... More
