Food was delicious. Casados with fish was fresh and tasty. The service was impeccable. The location is very well kept.

This place is great!! Sweet staff, HUGE portions, and iguanas for entertainment. The food was delicious and chicken fingers and fries for the kids was icing on the cake. Loved it.

Our family of four was staying in nearby Esterillos Oeste for a week and wanted to branch out for dinner after eating at some of the EO spots. Rancho Colon did not disappoint. The menu had English translations and so if you do not speak...Spanish and can order off the menu with minimal changes you should be fine. We had a very friendly Spanish-speaking waitress. My husband and I got the Casado - the sides were the best we had during our trip. Very inexpensive for a delicious meal. It is a good place to stop if you are staying nearby or are passing through on your way to/from Manuel Antonio, Dominical or points farther south.More

This is a must-stop while in the Jaco/Herradura/Playa Hermosa area. Hands down the best meal I’ve had in Costa Rica. Ceviche and fried plantains were wonderful. There are hundreds of local places like this along the main highway between Tarcoles and Quepos, but do yourself...a favor and make a point to stop here. Thanks Manuel for the great hospitality.More

We love hitting rancho colon for breakfast- their cafè con leche is delicious, the pinto and eggs is great, and we always get a smoothie too. For lunch the heart of Palm salad is fresh &a delicious also.

My husband and I eat at this restaurant all of the time. We have literally tried everything on the menu and everything is delicious!!!!! Authentic, Costa Rican style cuisine... food made with love! This is truly a hidden gem halfway between Playa Hermosa and Esterillos....If you are anywhere close to this restaurant, Rancho Colon is a must!!! Get the ceviche!More
