Description: 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.

Whilst in El Calafate we ate here twice. Pity we didn't eat here on our first evening in El Calafate!
Really - great quality food.
Good sized portions.
Great bread platter, gratis.
Lovely ambience.
Really nice staff.
Couldn't manage a sweet, so were given a mini tiramasiu, gratis!!
Fair prices for meals.
We were so glad we eat here.

Many thanks from the client in the bright green jacket.

We spent a week in El Calafate and our evening meal here was by far the best meal that we had.
Having read the reviews about the large portion sizes we ordered a single portion of osso buço to share and it was delicious. The two waiting staff were friendly and helpful even though the restaurant was full.

This was our second visit to Mi Rancho. We ate there five years ago, and this dinner was even better than we remembered. We had Tomato/cheese and spinach empanadas for starters and shared a pork entree with a pumpkin strudel and apple chutney. They also served a basket of breads. Everything was beautifully presented and tasted amazing. We had no room for dessert, but they brought us a tiny little square of ice cream with berries. The service was perfect and the atmosphere of the quaint little house was great. This ranks as some of the best food that I have eaten anywhere in the world.

Cute place, great service, nice ambience, and great presentation. Too bad that both of our dishes COMPLETELY lacked flavor. We ordered the OssoBucco and Pumpkin filled pasta.

We were terribly disappointed and neither of us were interested in finishing our dishes. They had no flavor - zero, zip!

Lovely little local restaurant. The appetizer was good (free) as was the different breads . My fiance had a massive steak which was superb and i had a slow cooked meat dish and risotto which was well cooked.

When we asked for our bill they gave us a tiny pudding thing which was a nice touch.
