After reading some of the reviews, we were a little hesitant to try Rancho, but after being in St. Maarten for three weeks and trying so many Simpson Bay restaurants, we decided to bite the bullet and go for it and we made reservations. Of course, it was the off season and reservations were not necessary.
The hostess was very nice and friendly. The general manager stopped by and chatted with us a couple of times during dinner. Our waitress always had a smile on her face and went out of her way to be accommodating. And the atmosphere was very pleasant.
My husband had the steak and it was perfectly cooked and very tender. I had the vegetarian lasagna and it was piping hot and very tasty.
We splurged and shared the coconut creme brulee for dessert. I'm now trying to recreate it to post on my blog. It was that good! And we enjoyed the flamenco dancers! Overall, a very nice evening out. As far as the cost, it was about the same as other comparable restaurants in the area.
