Went here with friends last week, had a sharing combo which was quite expensive, waiter was very pushy, we chose a bottle of Merlot from the wine list and he said, no not that one its a house wine, you want this one, which was 300 pesos dearer! We insisted that we like merlot, he got very stroppy that we... More

We had dinner here and were very pleased. The Mahi Mahi was excellent. Our waiter Umberto was great and so was the Mariachis.

Overpriced, my margarita tasted like mint mouthwash, food was extremely bland and lacked toppings or sides. Nachos were just chips, refried beans, cheese and meat, cheese enchilada was literally just cheese and sauce in a tortilla. Bathrooms had no lights on, no one could find a light switch.

I have to be honest, I typically avoid places like this as I live in Playa and don't spend much time on 5th. However, my bestie was in town and demanded a margarita after shopping in Paseo del Carmen. The waitstaff was very attentive and even entertaining as one waiter brought our margarita out on his head, lol. We weren't... More

Took my sisters and son here to celebrate my husband. This was his favorite place in Playa. They were all impressed with the experience and we walked away full and happy.

We reluctantly paid 2000 pesos plus 10% "mandatory" tip for the greasiest meal we had during our two weeks in the Mayan riviera. Compare that, for example, to 2000 pesos for 2 fresh-caught fish fried to perfection plus margaritas at La Playita at Puerto Morelos that fed a group of ten. Los Rancheros is a tourist trap.

My husband and I where there mid January is it was not only amazing food but our waiter Muelle, was entertaining friendly and on top of his game. We have recommended this restaurant to anyone we have talked to going to Playa. He made it an experience making fresh guacamole at the table so so good too. 🤗
