Atmosphere in restaurant warm and friendly, food well prepared and presented , service good. Pricing was reasonable but 10% service charge on party of 6 or more was added.
The food was Fantastic, The service was first class The restaurant is nicely Sep up and welcoming 👍 I would highly recommend going to Ranchos Fareham.
Table was ready even though we were a little early. Service was very quick, enjoyed meal. Good food, good atmosphere and would definitely go again.
Very good and quick service - steaks were delicious and very well cooked - we had the medium priced steak and we were both really pleased with them.
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.
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.
We had a lovely evening at Rancho. The steak was done to perfection with tasty sauces and plenty of veg and saute potatoes. Service was very good and I had a complimentary glass of wine which I think may have been as it was mothers' day. I have been there before and will definitely go there again as their fillet steak is excellent. The cost of the meal was very reasonable.
