Having driven passed this restaurant in past summers we thought it time to try on our trip in December, and we're so pleased we did. Our table was near the inside BBQ area so we had an interesting view. The restaurant is reasonably small inside so it's a good idea to book in winter, but there are plenty of outside... More

This is a top class establishment with proper waitered cervice that are polite and promt. We have now reserved and eaten here on several occasions. The staff and the owners are always very tentative and willing to make your visit as special at you would like. They have a great menue and can cook your steak just right. They have... More

Lovely setting, elegant, excellent service and food, their Angus fillet is excellent so is their Rice dishes like their Paellas on Sundays lunch, and has a wide range of wines, in other words excellent thru and thru. I definitely recommend you to stop by.

Quite a nice environment in the evening. Friendly/helpful staff. However, my plain grilled fish came with a spiced coating which was not shown on the menu. The waitress took it away with an apology but brought it back having just scraped off the sauce. My husband's steak was nice but certainly not medium rare - more like rare - and... More

I found this restaurant by searching the Internet and very much came to my attention. It is very difficult this time to either give a 3 or 4 stars as the restaurant has a lovely settings, the food is great and the staff members are very chatty and always with big smiles. During last night dinner, we had to ask... More

Best steak I've had since string in Spain last year! I watched the chef cook my 300g piece of fillet on a open coal grill and my God was it good! A must visit restaurant!

Visited again after having an initially excellent experience probably two years ago. This visit was very disappointing. Despite giving for our four steaks ordered clear cooking requirements all four steaks had to be returned as all were substantially underdone. Medium was virtually blue. I do understand the in Spain they have different ideas of what a steak needs cooking wise,... More

Restaurant El Rancho in Cabo de Palos, a place where the best Argentina and domestic beef have no place at very competitive prices. Firewood is the mark of the house, a unique flavor that you can enjoy with us.
