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.

We have a Mediterranean salad with goat cheese, Tradition Lamb barbecue and a Tiramisu. Salad is great cause vegetable is fresh. Lamb just made it right, not too dry. The only problem is too big service size, two of us unable to finish it. Tiramisu is not good but quite creamy.

This is the best restaurant in El Calafate.

After trying some of the best ones on trip advisor (la posta, Buenos Cruces, Isabela) in my view Mi Rancho is the best one. Food is outstanding

My sister and I ate her on our first night in El Calafate due to the reviews. We ate early and got a table without having a reservation but it was getting busy by the time we left. My sister had the lamb stew and I pasta with a lamb ragout. Both meals were good but not outstanding.

The table service was very attentive and prompt. When asked whether we'd like dessert we replied that we were full so our lovely waitress brought us a mini dessert which was a nice touch.

I'd go back again but probably with lower expectations.

Mi Rancho would definitely fall into the more exclusive experiences - not that itˋs very expensive (it is not) or very fancy (more down to earth), but the cozy setting makes for it. Absolutely to be recommended!

We went to Mi Rancho for lunch. It’s just a couple of minutes off the main road. If the small one is closed, there’s a larger restaurant a few buildings down. The inside is lovely and the service excellent. Our pasta dishes (one crab, one lamb) were amazing - especially the crab - we wish we had space for dessert! The Patagonian red wine was also really nice. Wish we had more time to eat there in El
Calafate!
