We took our three kids to dinner there last Saturday after walking down the street sight seeing. My wife and two boys had the Ahi tuna, I had a filet with our youngest ordering a burger. The food was fabulous. The "pickie-eater" boys could not get enough of the tuna as too my wife. My filet was perfectly cooked and absolutely out of this world good. We had several appetizers and drinks as well. The wait staff was amazing, if we needed something which was rare (like a new fork for my daughter after she dropped hers) and our waiter was busy, another quickly stood in. The food is not cheap, but well worth the money. We will be going back the next time we pull into port.

Hallo Yeolesalt !
Thank you very much for taking the time to review us on Tripadvisor,
that means a lot to us! We just ask you for a little favor, if it is possible, as we changed our name, this page won't be used anymore in the future, so as we would love to see our actual page rancking up, we would need good reviews on that page.
You will find us on Tripadvisor as Palapa Grill, Airport Rd 28 Simpson Bay.
As soon as we will have informed all our customers, this page will be removed.
Thank you very much for choosing us!

We ate at this restaurant 7 years ago and remember it much better then. It was a Saturday evening. The restaurant was not busy at all. We were a party of 9. Four of our meals were wrong. Service was slow despite small number of people. Food tasted ok but not great. Disappointed

I order lobster with vegetable and i received lobster and french fried. And the lobster was frozen inside. The service was so long and the restaurant almost empty.

My wife and I went to Rancho Steak and Lobster 2 times and looks like we will be going back one more time before leaving the Island. The food was fantastic, I had Chicken Fajitas and my wife had Salmon on both occasions and both times the food and presentation was excellent. I'm looking forward to having a steak on our final visit....I must say the service was outstanding and Ludo (sp) made us feel so comfortable, his sense of humor and commitment to customer service is just the best...
