Tables are always "reserved"

We have eaten at Ortanique on 3 different visits. Strangely, each time we ask for a table, we are always told that the tables are all reserved for later in the evening. Clearly, these reservations are meant to provide an "end time" for your dining experience. Food is generally good, portions can be... read more

We went to Ortanique the first evening we arrived in Grand Cayman. We say outside just off the water and the atmosphere is relaxing yet upscale a bit. The staff was pleasant and the food was enjoyable. It was cooked and seasoned well. I would go for the fish plates. I had the tuna with mashed potatoes. Yum!

I loved the loungy island feel of this restaurant. The outdoor seating area was a mix of tables and couches which made for a sophisticated dining experience. Excellent menu and wine list. The children's menu was excellent and my son said the chicken nuggets were the best he ever had.

We were with business group that had the entire restaurant reserved for the evening. We arrived in the dark by catamaran which was fun/novel. Had excellent hors d'oeuvres at outside reception. Would be nice place to sit outside for a meal. Due to the circumstances limited menu selections were offered. I had a pork tenderloin and salad, and sampler of... More

We arrived today and decided to come here for dinner. We were NOT disappointed. The atmosphere outside is very nice and the cuisine is excellent. Lots of fresh local ingredients and seafood. We'll definitely come back.

This restaurant is located in a new upscale development along a waterway. The food is very good and the staff is quite friendly.

Not sure where to start - with the amazing surrounding of this restaurant right on the water at Camana bay or with the very delicious food carefully design to please the eye as well as the tongue, or with the super professional and courteous service. Combining all of these leaves you with a taste for more (pun intended) and we... More

A lovely atmosphere, tasty and innovative food, the friendliest people. I can't believe this place wasn't rated higher, tripadvisor, you've let me down. This should be at the top. I wouldn't come to Cayman without eating at this place. I wandered in here one night. The mussels were delicious, the best I've had - and OMG that coconut rum cake.... More

This was our favorite meal during our week on Grand Cayman. The food is delicious! My favorite was the Jerk Chicken over Penne Pasta. Not too hot for Jerk, but just right. All nine people in our group raved about their food. You can sit outside, but bring a sweater because it was cool after the sun goes down. Inside... More
