The steak meal was very good but unfortunately we were the only ones in the restaurant. Couldn't fault the service or anything else. Maybe the bad weather was to blame.

I cannot recommend Ranchos in Fareham enough. The service was friendly, efficient and above all patient. The food sublime and cooked to perfection. The steaks were so tasty and the rib meat just fell off the bone it was so tender. The puddings went down well and the pina colada was perfect. Thank you xx

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.

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.

The T-bone steaks were very flavoursome and we both enjoyed them. We each ordered pepper sauce, not having been told that three other sauces came as part of the meal, and therefore feel that money was wasted on them. Service was friendly and pleasant though rather slow considering there were not many other diners. This was not the fault of the waiting staff. Perhaps the kitchen was short-staffed? One minor complaint was that the air-conditioning was set too cold for my comfort. Would we come again? Yes.

The food here is always beautiful. I'm not a big steak eater, but their meat is premium quality and cooked to perfection, so I can't resist. The rest of the menu is fantastic too, and I especially recommend the empanadas or the onion soup for starters. Also, the staff are always friendly despite being rushed off their feet!

Had the steak trio - 1 rump, 1 sirloin, 1 tenderloin, total 350 grammes - easy to spot the rump but the other two more difficult. In all very excellent. Starter & desert both excellent. Ambiance excellent. Service excellent. Will be going again. Don't drink so cannot comment on the wine selection.

We went to rib night on Wednesday which was lovely, the ribs were amazing the service was really relaxed, friendly and quick, although we went on rib night which I'd highly recommend we had a look at the rest of the menu and would definitely like to go back for something different

The food was really good, however the service wasn't that great, we had to wait for such a long time for someone to take our order, (about 45 minutes until I got fed up and asked someone if we could order) and then again to get the bill at the end of the night. We were the biggest table in there and yet it was as though we were being ignored the whole time!

Fantastic service, fantastic food. Not rushed or pressured into buying extras. Had the trio medium rare - cooked exactly as ordered and would def recommend. One suggestion - maybe they could do a Sunday roast with the best cuts of beef? I'm betting it would taste amazing!

Absolutely wonderful choice and quality of food. Very polite staff. The only reason I gave a score of 5 as opposed to 6 was that the staff appeared rushed ( its small inside and tables were filling up quickly to be fair) but it left an element of feeling " get then in and out asap)

As always the food was great for both adults and kids a warm friendly atmosphere but not too much, the only annoyance is by the time you have had a steak and rib Combe (making you feel very full) there is only one card machine so on busy nights you do have to wait to pay

This lovely clean restaurant has fantastic service and offers the most amazing steak selections in the area. I am a regular customer having been totally won over by the standard of the food and personal service. This is a restaurant not to be missed.

Had a really nice meal and service was good, my staff really enjoyed . Shame was a little bit ruined by a rude manager telling us we were too noisy right at the very end of the night when there were only two other diners left in the whole place ?? there were better ways of saying goodnight and thankyou for your custom .

It was a busy night and service was initially slow in getting drinks but after that all was ok & food arrived on good time. The steaks were good although you have to pay extras for chips & sides for some menu options. Overall good place to go for good steak

Very nice experience, I had the valentine's menu with a fillet steak medallion for a main. It was was abit overdone, however, still very nice. I definitely would go back to experience their main menu fillet steak to compare against the Argentinian steaks I regularly had in Germany.

Excellent service and food. Steaks were cooked perfectly. Only disappointed that we were charged for a piece of fudge cake with a candle in it when I told the staff it was my sons 18th birthday celebration and it was on that day. I thought this was complimentary.

There were very few tables filled so it was easy for the staff to manage. However the order didn't come out correctly to the table. The steak was cold and the waitress obviously couldn't identify a fillet from a rib as we given the wrong dishes. Disappointed and after my previous experience I won't be rushing back to soon.

All my guests were very happy with their choices. I had a rack of ribs which was too big for me but the dog will enjoy the left overs. Service and table was fine. Next time I will have a more moderate steak. Sticky toffee pudding great.

We had a lovely evening at Rancho's. The service was great, with friendly attentive staff. The food was lovely, with just a couple of things my husband felt could be improved in his meal but nothing major and we would definitely return and recommend this restaurant.

Unfortunately as I booked online at 4.40pm and they don't review online bookings after 4pm had to wait 25 minutes for a table to become free. However the food was excellent and given free garlic bread.
