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

My wife and I were taken there by friends who have lived in the Outer Bank for 30 years. We were not disappointed. Manteo is a fun town to visit anyway and this restaurant made it well worth the trip. My wife was raised in the southwestern US and is accustomed to great Mexican food. When she recommends a Mexican... More

Another fine restaurant to add to your list of places to go. First time having fish taco's they were awesome. Now will back at home will I find... More

In OBX for a long weekend, and this was our first stop. Started with the chips, salsa & guac, ordered the shrimp quesadillas and fish tacos. Also, going with the reviews on here I got the Ruby Red Margarita which was very disappointing. The chips & salsa were okay, looked like house made chips. Shrimp quesadilla was pretty good. Loved...

We came into town and decided to try This restaurant based on a recommendation from a friend. I had heard it was on diners and drive-ins and thought that was cool as well. We arrived with two discerning 14-year-old boys. They're actually quite picky so I was a little worried. We arrived and we are immediately met by our waiter,... More

My wife has a life threatening fish and shellfish allergy. The staff at Ortega'z were very understanding and accomodating and the food was VERY good as well.
