If you come to Nicaragua and fancy a proper steak, this is a must! Try their famous Churrasco for a lean full flavored plate, and if you are really hungry order a side of refried beans along with a 7-year Flor de Caña Rum. Just writing this is making me salivate for my next visit, and I can assure you... More

My parents were engaged here in the mid 70's and I've now visited atleast once over the last three decades in their honor. This last time, we visited with... More

No matter how many years go by, this is still, by far, the best churrasco in Nicaragua! I have been coming to this place since I was a kid, it´s still one of my favorite restaurants in Managua, you just feel at home. The taste of the meats are amazing and always accompanied by fries and rice and chimichurri! It... More

You can get better steak in other places and the price is too high for the quality and taste of the food. I recomend Jimmy 3 fingers restaurant for the same or better quality of food for 30% less

One of the classics that lost a bit of its shine, but still great for meat dishes. Old style, old experienced waiters, good food

Los Ranchos used to be a favorite lunch destination for my wife and me. The meat, different cuts, was well seasoned, grilled and served with style. Our last 2 visits were a disappointment. The churrasco next to tasteless, the french fries served cold, the salad with fresh ingredients but poor dressing. Reputation is not enough to keep clients.
