You have to wait ages to be seated and the service is very slow, but oh but it’s worth the wait!
I had lobster, there are three sizes on the menu and I had the largest. My husband had chicken and both meals were fantastic. We had a couple of drinks each and the total bill was under 50 CAD, you can’t go wrong. Would definitely return here if we go back to Varadero!

I felt cheated. The price for the dish on the menu is 2500 (There was no dot in the middle). You think it's pesos. In the end it turns out to be 25 dollars. Better avoid this place.

This was our second time dining at the El Rancho. The restaurant was a bit of a disappointment from our last visit. Resorts and restaurant in general seems to be lacking in fresh vegetables and fruit juices, things that make a meal enjoyable.

Myself , husband and our friend and her husband took a trip into Varadero on the hop on hop off bus. We were stopping at the Blau Varadero. It was our friends first time to Varadero ( not ours ) we did the markets and the new ( ish ) boulevard and stopped for a drink at the chocolate cafe . We then decided we wanted food but just a snack . We were going to just have a taco but carried on walking and came upon here. Looked busy which is always a good sign. We were seated quickly and we're looking at food orders coming out to people . Looked good.
There were musicians playing .
The menu was plentiful and priced very reasonable.
We ordered 3 full lobsters meals and 1 medium ( note the full lobster didn't come with claws etc it was already prepared) 1 mojito, and 4 crystal beers . Total bill $122 which we thought was excellent value. Food was tasty and probably the best meal we had in Varadero ( apart for our special meal we had at our hotel I paid for for our symbolic wedding day on 1st November where we had surf and turf )
You Can tell a good place when the locals go and we saw locals eating there.
Would definitely recommend and would go again .

We got taken to our table and then forgotten for 15 minutes. No one came over at all as they served everyone around us. I don’t know what we did to offend them but it became clear they weren’t going to serve us so we just left. Very odd. Maybe we’re actually ghosts.
