This is a great place for lunch. The food is local and tasty, the staff is amazingly nice (just like everyone seems to be on Curacao), and the atmosphere was relaxed...perfect for a vacation meal.

Parking is free and just across the road from the restaurant. Just look for the old boat beside the road and park there. They have rooms available but we did not rent there. We were there on a warm night but had a breeze and it was pleasant. Decent selection of beer. The frozen margherita was tasty and very well... More

I had the catch of the day which seed to be red snapper every day. It was fried too much till it was well done. The plaintain was lovely but the rest of the food was so so. The Ceviche was overly vinergered.

We were staying at the place next door. We had breakfast there several times, and dinner a couple. It's open air. Great decor, fun and funky. Usually quiet, it's a little out of the way. The food was good. Arepas are delicious!

We visited Rancho for lunch and it was nice and quiet. It goes really well with our relaxed getaway vacation. The food was good as well and the staff was friendly. I had the conch and it was really good! Definitely recommended and my GF had the shrimp pasta. Next time we are here we will come back to visit.

We have been on a week vacation in Curaçao and stayed in the Westpunt area. There are not too many restaurant choices. We have been at the at the El Rancho two times for dinner. The setting is very nice and quirky. We had no problem to get a table (we have been during the week and Saturday) The service... More

We have had a nice dinner today at this restaurant. Very good service, friendly and quick, every meal we've had tasted good, the local goat stew was excellent. We will return soon.

We ate here for dinner on a Sunday night. The downstairs was probably half full. Despite the reviews that were critical of the service speed, we found the server to be attentive and I wouldn't characterize the wait as long. That said, it seems common place at the island that they aren't in a rush to get you to leave,... More

Good Food and well presented and not too long to wait The waitress was extremely new - so a few minor issues with the ordering -possibly first day so she did better than I would have done! Funky setting and the accommodation area looked lovely
