A perfectly prepared steak isn't necessarily the most difficult thing to prepare, but still seems elusive in many restaurants. I ordered a medium-rare rump steak with fries at El Rancho, and was not disappointed. The steak was so tender it was like cutting through butter, and perfectly seasoned. The one disappointment were the fries, which were like something from the... More

Lot of different meats, really good meats. You can choose also side dishes if you dont want to rise/potatoes. Very good value for money and they accept all european cards (like Mastercard, debit, visa). They speak really good english also. Terrace is so nice in the summertime.

We were in Cologne (from the UK) and some German friends took us here for lunch. It's very cosy inside and beautifully decorated for Christmas. Service was excellent but the highlight was our steaks, 200g of prime fillet so delicious and tender and cooked to perfection. It's a real shame we cannot get Argentinian steak in the UK as it...

What can I say? Perfect service, Perfect time between courses. After being proptley seated our orders were taken and we were escorted to the extensive and copious salad bar with completely fresh and colourful salads and dressings. As starters my wife ordered the Vitello Tonnato and I ordered the Carpaccio. These starters are not so cheap at €9,50 and €12,00... More

On a recent business trip to Duren we were taken to this restaurant. It is very nice. Lovely and quaint inside. It was decorated nicely for Christmas. I was surprised by the size of the restaurant and it was packed for a Monday night. The food was fantastic - great atmosphere. A must visit!

If you do not like your steak well seasoned (too salty) please make sure to ask your waiter to let the chef know that, they cook your... More
