We arrived in Sosua one day earlier than expected, and were lucky to find lodging in El Rancho. The next day we decided to have lunch there based on tripadvisor reviews, and were not disappointed. My wife had breaded fish and I had shrimp in a coconut sauce and both were delicious. We are not fans of German cuisine, and were somewhat taken aback by the blackboard menu in German only, but food quality is definitely tops.

Saw this hotel yesterday while walking to Sosua beach, we didn't even realize that it had a restaurant. Tripadvisor recommendations are what made us try it out today.

What a gem!

Very inviting atmosphere, and the staff made us feel welcome right away. We sat on the little patio under a tree, and enjoyed the breeze while reading the menu. Nice variety, like schnitzel with mushroom sauce (it was tasty ), sausage, curries, salads, soups.

We couldn't decide on which German beer to order, our waitress kindly brought out a couple bottles and let us choose which we wanted.

We will come again next time we are in Sosua.

Andy, the German owner and cook prepares wonderful meals with his team. We stayed in the El Rancho Hotel and were happy to eat breakfast, lunch or dinner there. Almost two meals a day for three weeks.
