Food was great. Unique dinner and drinks menu. The only downside was that the waitress lacked any personality. Would definitely recommend if you are looking for an upscale night out on the island. Again.... Dinner was delicious!

Ortanique is an overwhelming choice for our favourite restaurant in the Caribbean and we have visited many. It's setting on the lagoon(you need outside seating to enjoy the overall ambiance), superb service and excellent food make it an overall excellent spot for lunch or that romantic evening dinner. On this lunch visit we chose simple salads, a cobb with conch... More

I must say first that we had 3 over-the-top excellent dinners before we came to Ortanique & it had such great reviews that we had high expectations. We came on a Sun night & they didn't have the fish tacos that everyone raves about online. We had short ribs & crab cake for appetizer, ribs were good, crab cake was... More

We visited this place for dinner pretty much by chance. The menu looked good and staff seemed nice. We have ordered a catch of the day as our entree - freshly caught triggerfish. The dish was great. However $40 for a 2 oz of fish seemed steep. We added lobster and crab cakes to the meal to increase satisfaction. Both... More

Sitting outdoors with a breeze blowing and a glass of wine, what could be better than an evening at Ortanique? The food! My wahoo prepared with a teriyaki sauce was fantastic. My husband's seafood pasta was delicious... And then we had dessert! I had the chocolate lava cake, scrumptious and my husbands Tres Leches with mango was awesome! Service great... More

We had dinner there last night and we can't stop talking about it. I had the rib eye Oscar and the meat melted in my mouth. The flavors were fantastic. The service was great, they made sure everything was perfect throughout the night. I will reccommend this restaurant to my friends who travel to Grand Cayman. The best meal we... More

I don't usually do restaurant reviews but I felt I needed to for this restaurant, given its prime location, the clientele they cater to and (as is becoming more and more customary in Cayman) they include their gratuity - even when none is deserved! There were two of us for lunch. We first couldn't get menus, then we couldn't get... More

Located in Camana Bay, this could have been any of some of the restaurants in Miami Beach. The ceviche was OK but that's. The rest of the meal lacked local flavor/uniqueness, if it were not for the environment (tropical climate, palm trees, and warm temps) this could have been "anytown, USA."

Nice outside tables overlooking the water at Camana Bay. Really good food, my goat curry was excellent - spicy and tasty with tender meat. Service was a little over the top, too many visits asking how everything was. It's good that they ask, but 5 times during one meal is annoying! Our starters were a bit pretentious in presentation. Overall... More
