Excellent fusion cuisine.

Made reservations for our first night on the island and it did not disappoint. Curried crab cakes were highly seasoned (do not expect Maryland crab cakes with old bay) and the jerk chicken pasta also excellent.

We ate by the water, the only place you will want to eat. We overlooked the inlet at Caymana Bay. 5 oz pour of wine $11 8 z $14. I had the West Indian Style Bouillabaisse.. Over the top great.. smaller portion than I wanted and very pricey $37 CI or $46.50 US..plus 15% tip required. My girlfriend had a... More

My wife and I have been on Grand Cayman for one month. While there are many great places to eat here, Ortanique is our favorite. The salads and fish dishes are unique and outstanding. We. Have eaten both lunch and dinner here. Service has been excellent this year. The setting and view along the water makes it very enjoyable venue.... More

Our first night on the island we went to Ortanique and our meal has stood up since. Our party of four had everything from delicious fresh seafood to amazing jerk chicken and we loved all of it. Definitely recommend this spot, though be prepared for a pretty steep tab.

The worst food & service! My fish was pretty much microwaved, steak was a low grade frozen packaged meat and cocktails were a joke with no flavor!!!! I do not even understand the high reviews. The $100.00 dollar lunch was a waste!!!!

Ok I just went for afternoon drinks which were amazing. Ended up trying their coconut cake soaked with rum, covered in fresh coconut. To die for. Will go get another before I leave. You must share this. It's just To big for one person.

Our large group was scheduled to eat dinner outdoors, but we were moved inside due to persistent rain. The service was excellent and everyone enjoyed drinks and dinner choices. Save room for dessert. Both the bread pudding and chocolate cake were delicious! The indoor acoustics, however, are not the best, and it was tiring to have to shout to be... More

Probably the best food we had on the island. Excellent waterfront view of the little island in camana bay. Cocktails were fresh and delicious, also some of the best we had on the island. Maybe a little pricey so a better value for lunch- the fresh fish sandwich special was fantastic. Kids menu was available.

On the spur of the moment, we stopped by after a rain storm. The staff quickly dried off an outside table for us. The fish was amazing: the wahoo with a teriyaki/barbecue sauce and the snapper was awesome! Norma's salad is always delicious with a lot of fruit in a mint sauce. Portions were large so no room for dessert.... More

Excellent food, excellent atmosphere and view. Walked to Ortanique from the Marriott. (a little distance because direct path to Camana Bay is not open) Marriott folks did not tell us before we set out on our adventure). However, since its was a beautiful night, and nothing else planned to do, it worked out. (too long of a walk for children).... More
