Stunning views, grounds, service, cuisine. The specials are truly "special", nothing of ordinary: one of our choices was a medium done swordfish with a white risotto, some magic herbs and aromas. Highly recommended !!!!

I'm pretty sure the view from the Observation Deck at the Blue Orchid is one of the best on the island. Luckily for us, we chose this place to eat our Thanksgiving dinner. The buffet served a good variety (turkey, prime rib and ham), plus all the fixings. They even had a "choose your own ingredients" pasta bar. The only... More

We tried the Pizza when they first started serving it and was horrible, uneatable .fast forward 6 months we thought maybe they got the idea of making Pizza and no it was just as bad. One of those only ate because we were hungry and we had brought it home. Never again.

Upon arrival I felt like I'd walked into a quiet sanctuary. Luscious greens, babbling koi pond, exotic aviary, and a walking path filled with beautifully painted landscape to the eyes. Entering through the door of Blue Orchid, you're welcomed by cordial wait staff that are attentive to your needs. A warm hello then quickly settled at a table elegantly laid... More

Set high up with incredible views at sunset over the turqoise sea, worth making the effort to spend a few pre dinner moments admiring the scenery from the balcony. Maggie gave us a good welcome and ensured good service throughout. The rack of lamb was to die for as was the crabcake. Not cheap but worth the effort.

This restaurant was excellent last year when we visited twice! Unfortunately, this year, we went on a Sunday night. To start, the bartender (who wasn't a real one--nor did he play one on TV!) was unsure how to fix a cosmo, didn't know how to operate the cash register and over-charged for drinks. Moving into the the dining room, we... More

Interesting location above Megan's Bay - will take a while by taxi to get up the mountain. The setting is beautiful. The food was good too. We had the fish special and a steak - both were very good.
