Visited with friends, friendly efficient staff the complimentary olives went down well! I had 225gram rump steak which was a good size cooked just right. The other meals were superb we will certainly be going back.
My wife and I have been going to Ranchos for a couple of years now. The food never disappoints. The portions and flavours are amazing and it is the only place we recommend for meals out to our friends. The service and staff are also excellent. Not to overly friendly as to intrude but polite and can have a short interesting conversation.
Fantastic & friendly service in a very pleasant environment. Food was exceptional, way up there on my favourite places for steak! We were made very welcome from our arrival right through to leaving (we were the last to leave!) highly recommended.
Excellent, food was amazing and well worth it’s value.Would definitely highly recommend a visit ,staff are welcoming and restaurant is of a high and clean standard.Looking forward to a visit back .
The food was good and reasonably priced, the wine was OK if a little overpriced, when we first went it had just opened and we were a little disappointed with the ambience as it felt crowded and very noisy when all tables are occupied. Unless you have a table in the foyer and put up with the constant in/out, as well as being in a 'shop window' the main area of the restaurant is really the only place to sit. This is still cramped and very noisy when fully occupied, the more the noise level rises the more people try to compete to be heard, the increased levels lead to staff rushing around in the limited space between tables. All of this makes the dining experience less than enjoyable when trying to converse with your dinner friends and we couldn't wait to get out of there. The place needs to move to bigger premises and we will not be going again because I do not expect to pay restaurant prices for fast food ambience.
We were kept waiting a long time for our meal and had to comment on it to the staff. They were quite accepting of this . Some of the items for the chef's special salad were not available so they gave us as best they could and took the price off the bill. The wine we asked for was not available so they gave us a better quality as the same price - it was very good. The meal however was extremely good as were the staff. It did not put us off going again, in fact can't wait for an occasion to repeat.
They find not know I was coming, thevlast time I was there you order a steak and tomatoes and mushroom was on the plate also the steak came with chips, I used to ask for the tomato and mushroom not to be put on the plate. One of my party ask if he could have small chipsin stead of large, when the plate arrived there was no tomato or mushroom. Apparently now you have to ask for them both and the chips which now comes as side orders and can cost between 2-50 & 3-50 a bowl. In stead of getting steak and chips for £18 you end up getting it for £20 +2-50 +-3-50 which ends up as £26 for a meal, that's an extra £8 more than the last time I went a rip off. The steak was cook as I wanted it but was so dry. Did not complain because it was a birthday meal for my wife and I didn't want to unset her.
My family and I have been patronizing Ranchos for years now and i dare say that the standard remains top notch. A warm and welcoming atmosphere. Ever helpful and attentive staff. The food? Always a treat: food is always treated with respect here, from start to finish. The only thing of note is it seems that the food quantity has reduced. Other than that, i do hope they keep up the good work.
We were a party of 6. Five people had steaks which were excellent. However one had gambas which didn't live up to expectations. When this was reported to the waitress she immediately came back and said we wouldn't have to pay for them., which was quite acceptable. It was one of our parties birthday and the brought some cake and a candle for him which they didn't charge for so all in all a successful visit. We will be back.
Our first time going there and we had a fabulous meal. The steaks were cooked exactly how we asked for them and all the meat was so tender, it melted in your mouth. Can't fault anything about the meal or service and the price we paid was certainly worth the quality of food we received. We will definitely be going there again.
