We dined at Ranching Leon based on the recommendation of our fishing guide. The food was awesome. We took the catch (Mahi Mahi ) they cooked it up several ways. Both dinners were great! Good job Fernando!!!

During our first trip to CR in last April, a local tour guide (Thanks Johan Chaves!) recommended this place to have a typical tico dinner. With our tour guide, we had a really good dinner, nice service and friendly atmosphere. Would go back any time again!

We found Rancho Leon on a trip several years ago and go back each time we return. Enjoy typical Costa Rican dishes, well prepared, in a lovely covered outdoor dining room. Large portions. A good family restaurant with excellent service.

I truly could not be happier with my nine day stay here at Rancho Leon! The restaurant is first class and the Leon Family and staff are some of the most hospitable and welcoming people you'll ever find!! The menu provides an authentic taste of Costa Rica, the nachos with chicken/beef or just veggie are amazing, the Rancho Leon Burger is the by far the best burger I have had while in Costa Rica. I have been to San Jose, Jaco, Quepos, Manuel Antonio, and Cartago along with others too, and no place comes close to Rancho Leon!!! This family run Inn and Restaurant from the Leon family makes you feel at home immediately, with beautiful views of the Costa Rican Mountains, pretty plants/flowers, and 10-15 minutes from the beach at Manuel Antonio on the main highway (Jaco Highway) coming from San Jose/Jaco to Quepos, just a couple miles before the town of Quepos. Fernando and Alex, the owners, and the whole staff make sure that you are taken great of during your meal at the restaurant. A few more dishes that are excellent are the quesadillas, rice/beans/meat of your choice, and countless other phenomenal dishes... I am a 25 year old college student/substitute teacher/High School Football (American Football) Coach in The U.S. Try to do what you can to make Rancho Leon part of your travel plans whether it be for simply having a fantastic dinner on the way to Quepos, staying here on your trip at the wonderful Inn with a pool side bar, beautiful plants, and nice/comfortable rooms, or doing both; Rancho Leon will not disappoint!!!
