About Rancho - Bournemouth

For succulent steaks served up South American style, head on over to Rancho. Situated on Poole Hill, Rancho is a mecca for meat lovers. Chow down on some chilli squid, pork chorizo or BBQ ribs to whet your appetite before tucking into a juicy steak, done just the way you like it. Other mouthwatering choices on the menu at Rancho include the Peruvian spiced cod, adobo chicken (marinated chicken breast served with spinach and mushrooms), chicken and chorizo salad, an array of burgers and veggie fajitas – you’ll find something to suit all tastes and dietary requirements! With its extensive menu and stylish surrounds decked out like a South American ranch, Rancho is a favourite among Bournemouth foodies. To guarantee a table, making a reservation in advance is recommended.

Service was very quick and helpful. Food was lovely. We only had the main course but we were all very impressed with the quality. Tables were nicely spaced, I hate eating in restaurants were they have squeezed too many tables in.

The service was extremely quick,which isn't necessarily a bad thing but we did feel a bit rushed.Food was good but disappointed with the mushrooms as we were hoping for large fresh griddles mushrooms but got what looked like tinned baby mushrooms soaked in garlic ( same with the tomatoes) we choose those side as a healthy option so we're not happy with what arrived 😟.That said the food was tasty,our server was very engaging and we did have a nice evening.Its the first time we have visited as we always go to the Poole branch but fancied a change.

I LOVE this place!! Any family event/occasion we always go to Ranchos! The staff are always amazing and the food is sublime! Our bookings always average 25 people and we have never had a problem which is unthinkable with a group that size!! I recommend this place to everyone!

Very good food, perfectly cooked steak. Would recomend to any steak lover. Only down side was the service was slow once the food was out. No checking if you wanted any more drinks etc and ended up going to the till to pay as waited 20minutea for the bill.

Started well with pleasant staff and a nicely cooked steak. However, after being given the dessert menu we were forgotten about. The staff were having a nice chat at the bar and not paying attention to their customers. Wha a shame to be left with a poor impression when it would have been so easy to do it right. Restaurants need to remember we can cook nice food at home; it's the service we're paying for.

The food was, amazing as always but the service was slow due to a huge table which took up most of the kitchens time before us. Plus they were a noisy bunch. So we ended up leaving as one is the last tables as the restaurant shut which is crazy when we arrived at 20:30.

Wonderful food. Very good service. it is hard to find a steak restaurant that can cook a fillet steak perfectly. They exceeded any expectations I would have had. I will be returning and recommending to friends.

Lovely evening, beautiful food & seated straight away,,,, only little issue was that my friends wine 🍷 was taken before she'd finished it just because she'd ordered another while the staff were serving our table 😐 Not a complaint per se, just a suggestion for staff to check with clients while clearing "empties "

Good service and comfortable sorroundings. Selected a steak meal which was OK served hot and was tasty, but nothing too special. Would recommend Rancho's for its service and friendly staff and might go again.

Great food. Well cooked, tasty and good quantities, even the vegatarian option one of our party ordered. Indifferent staff; didn't really want us there for lunch. But then opening from 12.00 until 2.00 doesn't really give long enough for a 3-course lunch.

We went to Ranchos Bournemouth to celebrate our sons 18th Birthday and thoroughly enjoyed it. Very large servings and the fillet steak, ribs and chicken were all tender, juicy and full of flavour....

We had arrived about 15 minutes early for our reservation at 7pm. They did not look a friendly bunch of staff. We were shown to our table and told that our waitress will be with us shortly. Before we had been able to take of our coats the waitress had arrived to take our drink order and did we know what we would like to eat. She went away and came back about 10 minutes later. The starter came faily quickly and was cleared away. The meet part of our main meal turned up, but then the chips turned up 3 or 4 minutes later with a 'so sorry to keep you waiting'. The food was ok but we kept being asked if we wanted more drinks. The whole experience left us felling that they did not want us there. The one in Poole is so much better!!!!!!!

The restaurant was rather cold - food as always is good - only issue for me as always is we ask for the bill we were ignored and eventually left the table and went to the till.

Two medium steaks ordered, one was medium rare, one was medium well. Expected better from a steak house. Service ok. Restaurant very loud as 2 very large groups seated in front and to the side of us.

Meal very very good . Was a bit annoying that every member of staff came up at some point to ask if our meal was okay. And could not believe that we were charged £ 1.97 for half pint of coke.

Very tired deco, dirty floor and front windows. Food average and service uninspiring. We sat next to hen night party which meant we couldn't enjoy quite evening. £65 for two people...overpriced!
