We stopped at Rancho Viejo twice on our most recent visit. The second time we brought our fresh catch in for them to cook and it was fabulous. They prepared it in two different ways and brought out so many sides for a very reasonable...More

We wanted full on, authentic, flour tortilla, mexican tacos- Rancho is THE place for that. There are two locations along the Malecon. We tried both and would recommend the one off of the Malecon strip. Big windows set up on a hill, feels nicer than...More

While visiting La Paz I mostly had meals at "Mexican-International" restaurants; Rancho Viejo was the "authentic" experience.

Stopped here after a long day on the water. Great meal. The tortilla soup was wonderful and the fish tacos and shrimp tacos could not be beat. Absolutely love the condiment tray with all of the goodies. Great meal for two for $10

We really enjoyed the food and drinks at this restaurant and we are glad we finally found the restaurant after wandering around a bit using the TA map. However, if you use google maps and the address listed I don't think you will be disappointed...More

After having been a bit disappointed by the Carne asada I've had in La Paz (maybe not surprising given the skinny cows I've seen) this place had excellent arrachera. I had tacos that were exactly what the Doctor ordered (well actually Doc might advise against,...More
