“A LOT DIFFERENT THIS TRIP”
Reviewed April 26, 2013

Used to be our favorite spur of moment place to go.Good food great service.This visit certainly changed our opinion of Rancho.Our favorite salad "THE SALOON" was dissapointing.Hallf the size and 4 or 5 shrimps compared to many before.The main cours were ok.
The poor service was the big difference.I had to go to the bar twice to see where our second drinks were.Bread only arrived after we asked for it.The usual rum with the bill 'that happens everywhere didn't.WE hardly saw our wattress and the place was not busy.
They have a booming pizza business'maybe they shoulg stike to it.

“delivery in record time”
Reviewed April 22, 2013

If you are staying in the Orient Beach area--including Club Orient--Rancho del Sol delivers! We ordered 3 pizzas and an order of ribs and a Caesar Salad--and it was at the chalet in 20 minutes. I don't know how they fixed it and made the trip that quick. Food was great and so was the price. Highly recommend it when you don't want to drive and you want a quick reasonable meal. Not sure what the total bill was for all the couples but we paid enough to get a free bottle of rose wine. Plenty of food for all.

We drove this restaurant on our way to the beach a couple of times. We finally stopped on our way back to our condo. The food was excellent. We had pizza and our friends had steak. The staff was wonderful. We meal and dessert were great. We ended up eating here twice during our 2 week stay.

“Great!”
Reviewed February 27, 2013

I can't believe we drove by this place and have never stopped. All I can say is wow. I had the lamb kabob and my husband had the beef kabob. I am a lamb snob and this is one of the best I have had...tender and tasteful. FF were good too along with the salad. Had a coconut ice cream sundae...again great....my husband had an apple tart that he loved. $78 American without tip...totally worth it. I never drink the flavored rums but this one was really good. Been to SXM many times and will not by pass this place again without thinking about stopping. It was very busy so I guess the word is out. Another couple we met said you can't have a bad meal here.

“Pleasant Surprise”
Reviewed February 19, 2013 via mobile

We went here with the intent of finding a simple place to have a pizza in between nights in Grand Case with the full on French Gourmet. I did not expect much because it screams "tourist trap" due to it's location (high on the hill above orient bay) and it's sign....who would expect much from a restaurant that bills itself as "texmex, pasta, pizza, tapas and more?" So, we ordered a salad and pizza and a bottle of wine--lovely Cotes du Rhone ($26E). The pizza was very good and the best part came last. We asked to see the dessert menu thinking we would split some ice cream or something simple...BUT, there it was: "Ile Flottante" (Floating Island). For the uninitiated, this is a meringue that sits atop a creamy/liquidy custard. Before I had always had them served as a meringue on top of the custard on a plate--here it was served in a sundae dish. OMG--it was heavenly! If nothing else, stop in for some beautiful view and some heavenly dessert!
