The food was awesome---the conch dish was similar to a gumbo based dish----delicious. There is something on the menu for everyone. The owner / manager was awesome. I will return soon

Expensive, pretentious food, that is fair at best. Why would anyone chose to eat mid-grade Spanish Tapas in a casual paradise like Vieques? We had tried most restaurants in on the Malecón and decided to give the Orquideas an opportunity. It proudly displays high accolades from the New York Times at its entrance, so we were hopeful. Nobody could initially... More

We enjoyed the food and drinks at this place. Worth a try for a change if you're in Vieques. The spicy martini is great

Orquideas has undergone a transformation from steakhouse to small fusion dishes in the same location a block off the main road in Esperanza. What you get is a quiet meal in a relaxed atmosphere (except for somewhat frenetic waitressing) at a decent price. What you miss is entrees. The tapas menu is mostly tasty, a bit eclectic, and a reminder... More

Stopped by here for drinks before heading to dinner elsewhere, was so impressed we stayed and canceled our reservations. Craft cocktails and specialty drinks at the bar, beautiful open tent and great atmosphere, and a delicious small plate selection. We stayed for hours and just grazed from plate to plate! I would definitely recommend this place over any of the... More

We have had better sushi from a supermarket. Obviously they are in some type of transition not what we expected at all.

Make sure to stop by this great restaurant for Tapas and drinks. My girlfriend and I had several tasty meals and spent some great nights chilling at the bar, chatting with the engaging bartender, Miss Sonne and other patrons.

We went here a couple times while staying in Esparanza. It's a great alternative to the beach food shacks on the malecon. We absolutely loved our bartender, Jami. He was born on the island, was very professional but also very personable and had great recommendations. The tapas and sushi menu options were delicious and beautifully prepared. My only complaint is... More

We vacationed at a hotel in Esperanza, and our dinner at Orquideas was the best meal we had all week. I don't understand why we were the only people there on this particular Thursday night. People -- if you are in Esperanza, eat at Orquideas! The small plates were fresh, bursting with flavor, creative, healthy, beautifully presented, and oh, did... More
