As a Mexican I am always sceptic when trying Mexican restaurants, specially in the USA. However this one was a really nice surprise, the food quality was not only amazing but it was authentic Mexican, not the usual burritos and nachos. The staff was very nice and helpful, they have good options for Mexican beer (other than Corona) which was very good. The service was fast and the portions are good so you get very good value for money. Very good! Will definitely go back.

Found this place through trip advisor! Guacomole made table side. Tomatillo salsa with jalapeño or habanero! Shrimp and fish ceviche was amazing! Croquettes with poblanos, shredded beef tamales wrapped in banana leaves and guava/jalapeño margaritas! The best meal here so far. Service in Miami beaches sucks! This place, they were tripping over each other to check on us! It was AWESOME!

Was looking for dinner for a group of 12 for New Years Eve in Miami Beach...virtually impossible, but El Rancho Grande was very accommodating! We thought we'd be going to a dive restaurant, but it was so nice. The ambiance and decor is well done, modern and inviting! The food was very tasty! I'd recommend trying the interesting variations on margaritas and definitely the guacamole. Can't wait to go back to Miami and go back there!

They had a very busy night and made some mistakes with the order. They corrected each very quickly and with a genuine smile. Food was very tasty...I'm not sure if it was more authentic but we certainly enjoyed it.

There is absolutely no way we could rate the experience we just had at this restaurant any less than excellent. Having now been in Miami for almost 5 days and wining and dining our way around for both lunches and dinner, we feel like we have had an experience that would be extremely difficult to beat.
From the moment the door was opened for us and we were greeted by three friendly staff to the detailed list of specials offered to us from memory to the exquisite cocktails and tasty and immaculately presented food. We had it all. We've seen some of the other reviews detailing authenticity of the dishes and can't deny the options are indeed far greater than anything we've seen before, but then again Australia probably isn't well known for its Mexican restaurants.
Our daughter gleefully played with the crayons and colouring paper she was kindly presented by the staff and, in between staff engagements with her, also enjoyed the savoury flavours and freshness of the food. The atmosphere was superb with several options for seating either outside, indoor in booths, in an intimate corner or in front of the bar. Thanks to the staff who made this one of our most memorable dining experiences.
