We were blown away by the amazing food that Ronald and his lovely wife served up! WE had both breakfast and dinner at La Rancheta and were in awe of all meals. Breakfast is enough food to keep you going all day- delicious crepes, local cheese, eggs and great coffee. For dinner we had a feast with Ronald making a coconut soup out of the fresh fish that the guys caught (message me if you want fishing info) and he was even able to accommodate me being the only vegetarian in the group. I would highly recommend eating here.

Be sure to call ahead to let him know you are coming - Ronald is an artist, but it takes some prep to get these great meals ready!

Ate here twice - first time we had one of the house specialities: Belgian chicken with homemade meatballs, and chips to die for! Second time round we couldn't decide so Ronald (the host) very kindly cooked us a selection of dishes - tapas style, but not the dodgy faux-tapas you get in so many places - this was a mixture of Dominican and possibly Belgian mini-dishes including fried bananas, sauteed pork in spicy sauce, stuffed eggs, salads, and many other things I can't remember now (oh, and more of the legendary chips). Beautiful fresh food, perfect setting, unbeatable value, and Ronald and his wife are both very welcoming, likeable hosts - it felt just like going round to your friends' place for dinner.
