We should no better than to order Tex Mex at a restaurant in a French part of a Caribbean island. I had the burrito. It was dry chicken inside a tortilla with a little avocado. My daughter had the chimichanga which was ground beef inside a fried tortilla. Wow. It was not good!!

Stopped by this restaurant beside the highway on the French side overlooking Orient Bay. Food was great, fantastic view and friendly staff. Loved the homemade complementary flavoured rum.

We ordered from their take out menu on the recommendation of the hotel staff. The best take out food ever! The fish stew over linguini was exceptional and was enough for two meals for two people, one of whom is a big eater. The salads were fresh and delicious. The meal was served with French bread at no extra cost.... More

We had driven by this restaurant for years and never stopped to dine. It seems to be a favorite with locals but we did not enjoy our meal at all. I had the beef kabob and it was the end pieces of steaks which was tough and chewy. Nice location and attentive staff but our meals were not enjoyable.

Rancho del Sol is an interesting restaurant in that by the name a signage one could assume that it was a Tex-Mex establishment peculiarly located on a French Caribbean island. However, the largest section of the menu is pizza! No matter, whatever you select the food is always good (we have been half-a-dozen times over the years), the view is... More

I have to say the meal we had wasn't the best on the island. The waiter and service were great. The view is spectacular.

We ended up here because we were in St. Martin for my wife's birthday and she loves Mexican food. The nachos were delish! And the seafood pizza was very tasty - simple but lots of flavor. The server - Hot Sauce, was amazing to look at as she constantly was scurrying back and forth to the kitchen with a sense... More
