We were recommended to go here from Mark with Mar1 Sport Fishing and what a place, the food was amazing and the Service was off the charts. It was a little pricey compared to some of the other Local spots but worth every colony

We were staying outside Quepos and didn't feel like going into town for dinner (it's crazy there!) so we went with a hotel recommendation and visited Rancho Leon. It was just a mile away and looked ok from the road. We went in and were pleasantly greeted by Mauricio? He was genuinely attentive and able to explain to us what the menu items were, since we didn't have any previous knowledge of Costa Rican food. The restaurant itself was nicely done with local items and plenty of overhead fans (it's hot there and most places are open air). I got a big cheeseburger and fries and my wife got a huge pork chop. Both were excellent. Everything was so good we went back on Saturday night and had another great meal. Mauricio recommended a yucca side dish and even showed me what it was and explained how they cooked them. The owner was there as well and was very friendly to us.
We would highly recommend if you are in the Quepos area that you stop and have a great Costa Rican meal here!

We stopped here for lunch and had the typical Casada dishes - rice, beans, plantains, peppers, and grilled chicken pieces, which were delicious. And very reasonably priced. Service was a bit slow, mainly because it was a busy place.

Food was ok and price not that cheap. A group of 20 people was eating so food take for ever to get our food. But what more bother us is to they didn't like us there can be because we flamboyant gays or because they was extra busy. No an smile, no decent service.

We were told by our local guide, Johan Chaves (Great Guide for Manuel Antonio Park) that Rancho Leon was a good place and boy was he right. It was a hot day and we had just finished a long walk when we rolled into the restaurant which was close to our hotel (Kayak Lodge which is also a nice place to stay.) We started off with some cold drinks that were great. My wife especially enjoyed her Crema (some sort of sweet corn drink). The empanadas were freshly made with an amazing corn shell that was the best. Our meals were large and very good. Overall I would highly recommended it.
