Imagine this… you have spent a beautiful day at the beach in Torrevieja, a walk along the coastline, lying in the sun and swimming. Afterwards you go to Rancho Beach where we will serve you the best drinks and food possible so you can enjoy a long sultry summer evening. Wining and dining with a great view of the Mediterranean Sea and the Torrevieja Marina. We hope to welcome you soon!

We have an extended menu with traditional Spanish cuisine like sea food paella and tapas but we also serve original international classics like Caesar Salad and Club Sandwich. Next to this we have all sorts of  specialties on the menu with or without a Spanish twist. All our dishes are homemade, no pre-fab ingredients are used, everything on your plate is fresh.

Our slogan is Drinks, Food and Fun! At this page you can already take a look at the menu we serve at Rancho Beach. We hope to see you soon!
