Worth the trip, however you get here. My partner and I decided to rent bikes from Moses Bicycles (1 block from BioMuseo). While the weather was very hot and humid, we had an enjoyable experience crossing the causway (although drenched in sweat). Please note, Moses appears to give a discount if you get your ticket stamped by Mi Ranchito. We... More

My fiancé and I had a great lunch here. The staff was amazing and our food was good and reasonably priced. I had the calamari in garlic sauce with a side of yucca. I definitely recommend this place. It was busy, but we didn't have to wait.

Food is of great quality. The place is very busy but you get seated rather quickly. I had the ceviche with guacamole on top. Very fresh and tasty! The chicken soup is a dream!!!

It took a while to seat us and when they finally did we ordered pretty quickly. I had a appetizer as my meal so they brought my food out in a decent amount of time. I ate all my food and was waiting about 20 minutes before they brought my friends food. All in all it took about an hour... More

As per recommendation of our tour guide we went few minutes after they open so we were able to get a table. Couple minutes later the place was packed. We ordered drinks, amazing mint lemonade, they were brought promptly. It took couple of minutes to place the order. But then it took forever for the food to come. More then... More

We tried to eat at Mi Ranchito last sunday. The place was packed so we joined the waiting list of 5 tables. We kindly asked the lady if we could order a beer and wait by the bar. She told us we could order and then wait outside because they don't have service at the huge bar they have. Ok.... More

Open air restaurant that because it is located at the end of the causeway can get a bit windy. However food is excellent. I have been there many times and hope to continue to do so. Great value for money and excellent friendly and efficient staff only add to the joy of eating here. The old snag is that it... More

Ate here after visiting the local Smithsonian run wildlife park. Arrived to a full restaurant where no one had food. Unfortunately there aren't many options around so we decided to try it. An hour later, our food arrived. Fortunately it was hot and tasty but at that point I would have eaten my arm. Good food, but be prepared to... More
