In an area of fine restaurants, the Rancho del Sol is not really competitive, but it has a visual flavor that makes everything a bit more fun to chew on. Located on a high hill overlooking Orient Bay, it is a delight to look from. And made up like a loony bar from a spaghetti western, the interior is a... More

Love the pizza at this place, I had the one with goat cheese and it was excellent. The views are great, it's close to the views you get at Paradise View. They deliver as well!

It was very much a chili with beans and the flavor was excellent. His rib were well cooked and pulled off the bone with ease. I had the lamb kebab and the tast... More

We came here for dinner. The atmosphere was good. Food was ok, meet a little tough. Nothing spectacular. Desserts were okay, wish they had a bit more of a variety for chocolate. Service was good. I didn't like that there were people coming around trying to sell flowers and items, that was a bit annoying. Overall it was ok, I... More

It was a rainy day in SXM. Decided to try Rancho Del Sol. Arrived and was seated indoors due to the wind atop the hill from Orient Bay. The waitress brought us chips and salsa. The chips had popcorn mixed in. They were so stale they were in-eatable. They had to be sitting out all day. We order the special... More

Found this place during our quest to find the best Pina Colada on the island. Could honestly say, that yes, they do serve one of the best! Love the sprinkle of cinnamon. They do have the best view of Orient Bay!

We have been traveling to the island for 7 years and each year we do a fun thing of driving around the island and doing the best pìna colad test. So far EVERY year rancho del Sol wins. And the view does contribute. We have not eaten here since it's always early on our testing tour, but have seen some... More

The view and atmosphere is perfect. There is a huge variety of food from fajitas to lasagna. The service was excellent. A fun place that you should not miss! Prices were good too. We are looking forward to coming back again and definitely recommend this place.

The first night I had the ribs, which were very good. My husband had pasta which he did not like. A few days later we went back for lunch. I ordered Croque Monsieur and it was very obvious that the chef was not French. It was HORRIBLE. I think they used Wonder Bread and Velveeta. Seriously. Just awful. But the... More
