Quiet Lunch beside the water

Lunch over in Camana Bay is a pleasant quiet retreat away from the crowds on the beach. There is outside seating overlooking the lagoon and man-made island planted with palm trees that are home to the iguanas. Ortanique had an interesting drinks menu including non-alcoholic options. I had the... read more

TA wouldn't let me give this place zero stars. Can I review a place I did not eat at? Yes I can. We were actually super excited to eat here. Having little kids, this was going to be one of our "fancier" nights out. OK, it's not fancy, but I said we have little kids, so it counts as fancy.... More

Fine dining on the bay. Food always excellent across the board. Best seeds are nearest the water. Go.

Ortanique is located on the East side of Camana Bay. That means you won't see the sunset but it looks out on to a man made beach and small marina like area. very pleasant. A bit expensive. Good quality food. Like most of the restaurants at this location, the servings are small. Nothing special about the service. Good place for... More

Went for a late lunch with family. Greeted with smiles and directed to table. Servers were well-versed in menu and day's specials. Food was terrific, especially the daily specials. Ceviche was best we had on the island. Pretty spot with outdoor seating. Highly recommend.

I avoided Ortanique for a while because I thought it might be highly priced given the reputation of the owner and executive chef Cindy Hutson, but it's really reasonable and the daily changing menu means the restaurant stays in season, uses fresh ingredients and always has something new. Love the setting on the water and while I wouldn't have thought... More

Evening started with drinks ordered cranberry vodka which came fruit juice and vodka. Companions drink was horrible. Appetizers were average. Our main course was flavorless. Mahi was rubbery and bland. Steak wasn't cooked properly. Dessert was $15 for a piece of cake that was billed as chef's choice -but not home made. After dinner coffees were cold. All in all... More

Wow. Just... Wow! Stumbled upon this place on our second night here while we were walking around Camana Bay. We were hungry and it had great water views so we gave it a shot. We both ordered the local seared tuna which was AMAAAAAAZING! I have eaten at many excellent seafood restaurants in New York as well as on the... More

My wife and I recently took a visiting friend to Ortanique in Camana Bay for dinner. The service was great (our waiter was friendly, attentive and chatty but never intruded) and the place has a relaxed but smart feel to it. We took the option to dine inside because the mosquitos seemed to be out in force that night, but... More
