El Rancho Viejo is a block south of the Malecon on De Leon. Worth the walk! I enjoy the arrechea tacos. The condiments served make every tacos a different taste treat

It was ok, I've had way better tacos all over La Paz though. Not sure why this place got such a good review.

We went for dinner on a Friday night and although we were there at 7:30pm, locals weren't there yet. Didn't matter...they were friendly and helpful. We all tried the molcajete (chicken, arrachera)...excellent!! Guacamole/margaritas were good too! Fun watching the cooking on the sidewalk!

It is not the first time I go but I won't be going there in a rush at all. It's very generic, they always have the same things and well,the food is not that bad but the prices and the service are questionable and could be improved. The prices are way way too high, $25 for a single taco? And... More

For a budget meal it was suggested that we try to arrachera beef taco which comes with a selection of toppings. It was delicious and reasonably priced!

Excellent! Loved their beef tacos and the condiment tray (cabbage, cooked peppers, cucumber, sautéed onion, salsa. They also had tomato and a guacamole side that came with it. Very reasonably priced. Lots of food. We were happy that is was open after nine on a weekday.

My husband and I have now got a reputation thanks to Rancho Viejo's arrachera. We have eaten this steak at the restaurant many times and it never disappoints. A friend told us that you can request to buy the meat uncooked and BBQ at home. Wow is our house popular now for dinner parties. All I need to say is... More

Try the shrimp. My husband says it is the best! Good food all around. I liked sitting in the larger area with the windows towards the water. It had more elbow room and a better view.

There are a couple of these, but this one is only open at night - fancier than the malecon partner that serves tacos. Very nice place
