The go-to place of carnivorous Poole foodies when craving some meat, Rancho is a South American-style steakhouse conveniently located on The Quay. With its warm and cosy vibe, Rancho Steakhouse is the perfect place for a family meal or for celebrating a special occasion with friends. Whet your appetite with some chargrilled tiger prawns, BBQ ribs or chilli squid, before sinking your teeth into a succulent flame-grilled steak done just the way you like it, the baby back ribs or some fresh seafood like the Peruvian spiced cod. Vegetarian? Not a problem! You'll find plenty of meat-free options on the menu too, making Rancho Steakhouse the perfect place for a group dinner in Poole. To guarantee a table, booking in advance is recommended!
As always - perfectly cooked and delicious steaks served at Rancho and the Caribbean ribs were very tasty too. The service was attentive and prompt considering the restaurant was so busy. We’ll be back.
Excellent evening in a nice environment, with friendly staff. The food was well cooked and all meat was very tender and there was plenty of it.
Delicious food and they put up with me and my partner being quite late! A great place for my birthday celebrations. Service was also excellent.
staff brilliant, bit of a mix up over starters more my fault ordering 2 starters as a main!! sorted out very quickly, Son left his birthday cards and the restaurant owner ran and caught us up! fantastic atmosphere will go again!!
Nice restaurant with a great atmosphere coupled with excellent service. Steaks were cooked to perfection and had a moorish flavour, side orders were OK. Meals were served hot as everything is cooked to order. If you like good grub and somewhere special to eat Ranchos Poole is the place.
It must be good to be busy on a Wednesday. Nice restaurant plenty of space between tables, and good service. Our party of three all opted for the filet steak and it was a great choice, well cooked, juicy with a superb taste. All in all it was a nice evening and meal full marks to Rancho's Poole.
Warm welcome and spacious round table for the six of us. Enjoyed 5 different meals between us and all were well presented with generous proportions. All freshly prepared and very tasty. Empty plates all round. Always a good sign! One of the best meals we've had.
Fantastic! Easily the best steak I've had outside the USA. Great service too. The only downside was the 4 potty-mouthed blokes that arrived at the next table - however, the restaurant staff were more than happy to relocate us and it's a big restaurant!
Food is fabulous and good ambiance, unfortunately Everytime I have been it is the service that lets it down. Over 90 minutes to be served food, was with a party of people and we had to serve and get our own drinks due to waiting so long! Such a shame as staff great but not enough of them to cope! Everytime same.
Whenever I visit Poole I always go to rancho steakhouse and I have never been disappointed with the food or the staff. For me it would be nice to have smaller meals for those of us that do not have big appetite.
