Ranazul in Fulton MD has consistently been my favorite tapas restaurant in Maryland. Their extensive choices, flavorful and delicious servings at value prices make the difference. Significantly, their juicy burgers remain unequaled. If quality of food, taste, and service is what you are looking for, Ranazul is the most obvious regional high note.

This is a nice physical plant with good service and good tapas. Its not cheap but in Southern Howco where are you going for tapas?

Ranazul has done a great job of creating a community environment. We generally go for the late happy hour on Wednesday. The food is very good and the bartender - Jeremy makes you feel like family. It touts itself as a tapas/small plate restaurant but the portions are very generous. There used to be a greater balance of seafood and... More

Tapas! Tapas always sound good to me. I ventured over and found this place nestled away in some mixed-use community about 10 years old named Maple Lawn. Never heard of it. Never heard of Fulton, MD either. Note: the restaurant is only about 7 years old. Upon walking into the establishment, I definitely got the immediate sense that this was... More

Ranazul sounded so great on paper! Small plates restaurants are my favorite, because of the variety. I read the reviews before we went, and they sounded good. But, the reality was...pretty darned average. The decor was, as my daughter described it, "hotel lobby." It was perfectly nice, but very bland--not at all interesting or exotic, as one might expect from... More

We took advantage of the 'Happy Hour' where they have a select group of Tapas for $4 each and wine and cocktails are $2 off of regular price. They had a special half lobster tapas for $12. It was excellent. After we downed one, we ordered another. We had to restrain ourselves from ordering more. We ordered four other tapas... More

4 for Dinner on a Sunday evening. Guitarist performing in the dining room was a pleasant surprise. Also pleasant (but not a surprise) was the excellent service throughout the meal. The room was half-empty (not too surprising on Sunday evening), and quiet enough for easy conversation. We shared an array of Tapas, and sangria (Yummy!). A cheese plate with fruit... More

Hubby and I went here last year (forgot to do a review) via a Groupon. Delicious! He booked Valentine's dinner this year, but we decided that a few of our friends would love it too. So 5 couples turned into 3 couples. For the whole entire meal, you heard either, oooo, mmmm, yum, omg, or a lip being smacked. We... More

There are a growing number of new restaurants in the Fulton/Maple Lawn area, but Ranazul continues to be at the top of my list of favorites in the area. The dim, cozy dining room, excellent tapas menu, and friendly service keep me coming back over and over again. Keep in mind that the portion sizes are a bit larger than... More

Have been to this restaurant several times and gotten to like the use of small plates to taste several different types of food in one sitting. Wine selection is good, but the bar needs to bone up how to make some of the more common mixed drinks as they don't seem to know the correct ingredients for example a Manhattan?... More
