We came to the restaurant at 7pm and soon after that the restaurant was full. The waiter/owner was very friendly and helpful even though our Spanish was limited. Recommend you come with an appetite as the meals are big. The t-bone lamb can't be missed....More

A suggestion is to delegate. Have your hotel call them with the details then get back to you.

Mi Rancho is a small restaurant which operates in a historic house of 1944. Its 100% homemade food is made from regional raw materials. The old clay oven where the bread is made and some dishes stand out. The place is small so it is advisable to book in advance due to the high demand season.
