“A Friendly, Family Place”
Reviewed August 21, 2012

A nice place with good waiters, the menu is quite basic but the place does what it says on the tin !
The prices have crept up over the years but the meat is always of a high standard !
Enjoy and take the family.

“An Oldie and still a Goodie”
Reviewed August 13, 2012

El Rancho has been around as long as I have been going to Roses - 40 years . The format is great and you can see the meats being BBQ'd if you go inside .My two teenage children loved the buzz as it started to get busier. The Gaspacho was lovely so was the alleoli ,the toast was rough and the garlic to rub in great . The French fillet steak was the best of the holiday without a doubt . A top fillet cut for around 18 euro -amazing- with all the trimmings. The wine list was also well put together and reasonably priced. My family had the ribs at less than 10 euros and they had an outstanding flavour vote .El Rancho is on the outer edge of Sta Marguerita ,an easy walk in the cool evening or a quick car journey . Great quality and value in the way Spain used to be .

“Consistantly Good”
Reviewed July 22, 2012

My family has used El Rancho for over 40 years! when visiting Roses, two or three times a year, the first & last nights of a visit are always in this friendly restaurant which has character. The food & wine give excellent value for money. B-B-Q chicken & spare ribs are favourites!!

“timeless and unpretentious - simply great food”
Reviewed September 4, 2011

we have visited this restaurant for the past 25 years whenever we have been in the area, and it's quality and appeal have not diminished, if anything the value is better now. i honestly don't think the quirky decor has changed at all, but the quality of food and service will not disappoint. You need to be a carnivore to fully appreciate the menu, although there are many good starters and desserts, it is typical Catalan food, meat barbecued well on the huge grill. Staff very accomodating and efficient, and probably the best allioli in the area.
