This is a great little restaurant downtown in Manteo. Very nice atmosphere with outside seating. The fresh fish is good and excellent vegetable side dishes.

Just thinking back about the food at Ortega'z is making me want to drive back. We went for lunch in April so they were not busy but the food was fantastic. My husband and I actually ate here twice during our stay in Manteo during our honeymoon. The waiter was attentive and even talked to us a little about the... More

We took severak family members to Ortega'z 4 nights ago and it was a wonderful experience. The fish dishes were excellent and the tacos were also a hit. The prices are reasonable and the selection for kids was broad. We will go back again when in the Manteo area.

We ate here in August with family. The server was great, friendly without being obnoxious. Most of us had something different. The tuna dish looked great. The fish tacos were recommended to me by someone back home. I'll admit I have haven't had many at other places but these were amazing. Loved the seasoning. The drinks were good as well.... More

All of my friends from here rave about this place. It is just one of those places that was always on my "To do" list and i finally got there. The food was super, very generous portions and nice service.I will be back.

The service was good and staff friendly, but the food was no more than average in our opinion. Doubt we would go back.

Great food and great service. Staff was great and helpful. It was warm in the restaurant but they fixed it and cut the air down. All of the people that I was with had no complaints from their food and said all was delish. Chips and dips were awesome.

Our family of 3 adults ate here for lunch and got a seat fairly quick. The food was very good and prepared nicely but the noise was awful. Way too much noise which echoed everywhere. This made the experience not pleasant. I would not ever go back here for that reason alone. They did have outdoor seating and I am... More

Second trip to Manteo and the restaurant. Carry out this time. Bartender Tom was excellent: friendly, helpful and food was ready when promised. Loved the She Crab soup. I am from Maryland and picky about crab anything, and this was wonderful. I also had the shrimp ceviche, and I did not love it. It was in a salsa base, and... More

Went with some girlfriends and enjoyed dinner. The fish tacos were pretty darn good (and they just happened to win the Fish Taco Cookoff the very next day)! The soup had hunks of crab in it, but it could have been served a little warmer. It had great flavor though. We split the shrimp ceviche, and it was really delish!... More
