Description: El Rancho restaurant & bar at Hotel Villas Rio Mar offers a great selection of international dishes and local specialties. We are known for having excellent steaks! Enjoy the quality food with a good glass of wine; the wine list is quite extensive and contains some nice wines that are rare to find in Costa Rica. We are opened 365 days a year from 7 am to 10 pm: breakfast, lunch & dinner. Besides our specialty dishes from the grill, we offer also some great vegetarian and organic dishes. Our kids menu offers some tasty dishes for the little ones. Talking about kids; they can use our large swimming pool, baby pool and play ground. Grown-ups can use our billiards and darts or watch a sports game at our bar. You can also hosts your private events with us. And since we have a fully equipped conference room available, we are also perfectly suited for business events

We had dinner and breakfast here... The dinner included some of the best Real Ceviche we have had. No acidic; well balanced. The Seafood Rice (arroz con mariscos) was very tasty. Had good drinks (Campari & soda and Cointreau) at a reasonable price for the area. The service provided by Carol is the best; ask for her.

Breakfast included a fried yucca ball with ground beef and fried local cheese. Eggs and sausage well done as well (Carol was also at breakfast). Coming from Miami and living also in Boston, Chicago and Minneapolis; we fully recommend this place.

Group trip so all have different tastes and between us we ate most things on the menu during our stay, the food was exceptional, very nice steaks, chicken and sea food.
The staff were very friendly and helpful, water and warm rolls offered on the table.
The setting is lovely, spent time watching a humming bird and toucans.

The breakfast buffet (if there is available this day, not every day) is very good, fresh fruit, typical costarrican breakfast, bread, cereal, good coffee, is very good.
Lunch.. no.. there are better option in the area, even the food is good, it is quite expensive.
The service is good.
