I've lived on St Maarten for 21 years and had never been to Ranchos! Since last year four of us locals have had a mission to go to a different restaurant every Friday night and being lazy we have rarely ventured out of Simpson Bay, yes there are soo many restaurants! Our goal is "cheap and cheerful" but running out... More

The Latin band was amazing! We were right on the water with perfect music and food. The service was wonderful and the dinner was topped off with complimentary house rum shots.

Went for dinner again this year. The food is always tasty and served very hot. They bring you warm buns and garlic spread to start. I had the lasagna which was very filling for $16us and my husband had the ribs which came with a choice of two sides for $18us. The bill does have an auto,attic 15 0/0 tip... More

This was by far our favorite restaurant. The ambience was very upscale, yet you did not have to dress to the nines. The food was to die for; our waiter was very attentive, yet not over bearing. We started off with warm homemade chips and salsa, which were excellent, then we split the Fettuccine Shrimp Alfredo dinner. It was the... More

During our stay in St. Maarten we visited Rancho 3 times because we liked it so much. Delicious empanadas, juicy steak, lovely fish and great salads. Definitely our favorite on the Dutch side.

Great atmosphere with a terrific show. We have seen flamingo shows in Spain before and this ranks right up there. Nice touch to a wonderful meal. Salmon and Maui Maui was totally awesome. Would highly recommend. Oh and most people dressed elegantly for the evening here.

We loved the ambiance at this restaurant, the place had beautiful decor! The floor manager was our server for the evening, and he was very warm & sweet. It was the first restaurant in St Maarten we had visited, it was Christmas Day, and he made us feel like we were at home. This was by far the best meal... More

The atmosphere seems amazing upon entry and the servers are pleasant. The stench of Simpson Bay is too much to bear. I went in to wash my hands and I had to hold my breath and get out of the restroom immediately. I have never smelled a stench so foul in my life. The icky part is the restrooms where... More
