While we were initially disappointed to find limited fish/seafood/vegetarian items among the lunch specials, we were delighted with our decision to share the shrimp with garlic sauce entree. The shrimp were fresh, delicious and plentiful and the sauce was yummy. The entree included rice, beans and sweet plantains. We got good guidance from our server, who steered us away from another shrimp entree to his favorite.
The decor is simple but tasteful.
This restaurant is within a block of the Marriott Residence Inn and maybe 2 blocks from Marriott Courtyard and the visitor's center.

As parents of SCAD student, we try to find an excuse to go to Rancho Alegre when visiting. Here's why. The food is excellent and we always enjoy ourselves. The beef, pork and vegetarian dishes have all been quite good, we've not had seafood yet. I always order some Sangria, and we're fussy when it comes to Sangria. Fried plantains and yucca are terrific and the tamale appetizer is recommended, too.
There are a couple things to know before you go. Rancho Alegre is never quiet, but on many nights they have live music - last night they had an outstanding jazz quartet. So come for fun and food, not talk. Also, they take a Cuban approach to service, which means they're huge on hospitality but not overly attentive. Relax your expectations and have a sangria (maybe a mojito, they looked good, too).

We just finished a great lunch ropa vieja for my wife and lechon asado for me. Each came with rice, beans, and fried bananas. The total bill was under twenty dollars (pre tip). The food was as good as any we've had in Miami. The location is a bit away from the main action, but worth the walk.

Visited for the first time on a Saturday for lunch. Promptly and pleasantly greeted and seated. Server made some recommendations from the lunch menu, which we took: baby churrazco (skirt steak) for me and lechon asado (roasted pork) for my wife. Both plates served with rice (white or yellow), beans (black or red) and sweet plantains. Food served quickly & nicely presented. Skirt steak was very good, but the roasted pork was incredible. I've had plantains before & not a big fan, but these were very good, slightly sweet, and would order them again. We'll be back to try other menu items soon.

Pork sandwich, not the Cuban is the standout here. Servings are huge and of a very high quality. This place is a real find.
