This cozy little cabin restaurant is so popular that they've apparently got a second location down the street. We went to the original cabin and it was as welcoming and friendly as can be. The staff are charming and the food really wonderful. The lamb with mushroom risotto is divine, and the spinach empanadas the best we've had in Argentina.... More

Passed by this restaurant one night as we were walking back to our hotel after a not-so-pleasant dinner at Casimiro Bigua. Had a look at the menu and decided to dine here the following night. I am glad we did! I ordered the osso bucco and my husband had the lamb t-bone. Both were cooked perfectly and were very tasty.... More

Just got in town, was looking for a nice place to grab dinner, after a couple of seconds here on tripadvisor decided to take a chance with Mi Rancho and was quite happy with the gamble. It's small and cozy, has good meat and wine choices. Heavely recommend the Escabeche de Cordero (lamb pickle) which might sound odd but is... More

We came to the restaurant at 7pm and soon after that the restaurant was full. The waiter/owner was very friendly and helpful even though our Spanish was limited. Recommend you come with an appetite as the meals are big. The t-bone lamb can't be missed. As well as the "osso" which is slow cooked veal.

Then we ordered the ossobuco, it was tender, slowed cooked in wine, served with mushrooms risotto. A must to have lunch or dinner in El... More

Been here after a tired hiking for Fitz Roy, chose the old Mi Rancho, the new Rancho just 10 meters away. But the old and small one feel much more comfort, opened 7PM, have been there 7PM but only served after 7:30PM. orders osso bucco, perfect choice, the lamb stewed may need more time was so so. The house wine... More

We had a great table and an excellent meal here. Our host Agustin seated us after a bit of confusion over our reservation ( make sure you get a reservation, this is a small packed space). Our server Mayra was fun and helpful. The food was very good, with many small touches that made it stand out. I recommend the... More

Description
Mi Rancho is a small restaurant which operates in a historic house of 1944. Its 100% homemade food is made from regional raw materials. The old clay oven where the bread is made and some dishes stand out. The place is small so it is advisable to book in advance due to the high demand season.
