Absolutely amazing! Simple as that! Food is to die for , very friendly and attentime staff, great atmosphere overall. We are coming regularly and will continue to recommend this place to everyone!
Excellent meal, first class service and meal promptly delivered. Will definitely come again. Particularly grateful that there is a handicap parking right outside the restaurant.
Lovely place! Staff were very professional in all they did, and so welcoming, price was very resonable. Will definitely be going back to enjoy another lovely meal!
A very enjoyable and vibrant evening, the ribs were so tasty, the staff we're very friendly and helpful, looking forward to the next evening out at rancho,s
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 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!
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.
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
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
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.
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!
The menu choices were very good, and everyone got what they wanted in my party. Staff were very helpful. Whilst the place only had a few tables in use, we did not feel as though we were sitting in an empty box, I would go there again.
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
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)
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.
