Blue Orchid has a cozy atmosphere atop the island with views looking west. Arrive early and stroll the grounds, teeming with Caribbean foliage. Our foursome had lamb, sea bass and and grouper, which was a special. Entrees were wonderful. One of the apps was a bit disappointing. Picking a moderately priced wine from the list was no problem, and the... More

This is a superb restaurant. I've never had a bad meal. Great pizza, appetizers, or dining. There is a great view and the staff rocks!

This place is stunning - at the top of a mountain, you can oversee the whole island. There are orchids on the property - location and view are 5 star. The food is ok and fine but not extraordinary. I had two appetizers and they were good. Ask for the specials! In off season, the place had run out of... More

I have nothing but great things to say about this place. Obviously the botanical gardens are stunning and the views are spectacular. The vibe is cozy and romantic. We were the only diners for the first half of our meal, but towards the end the place started to fill up. I suppose people eat later in these parts! We tried... More

I could never grow tired of the Blue Orchid. It was our first time to try the new chef Karrl, as Ben has left the island. Didn't know what to expect, but as always the food was fabulous. Our only disappointment was no Escargot appetizer was not available. The Blue Orchid makes the most delicious Escargot. Being that it was... More

My husband and I had our anniversary dinner here. We ordered the parmesan fried oysters, which were a bit fishy, so we had to ask for lemon to squeeze on them. I ordered lamb three ways, which was very good and my husband ordered the duck breast. They also brought us a complimentary appetizer which the chef is considering putting... More

The views are absolutely terrific. We had a collection of different meals: prime rib, filet mignon, and the sea bass. All three were just average. Both prime rib and filet were a bit over cooked.

This is a very nice restaurant at the botanical gardens. It is high on a mountain with a great view. We took part in the Saturday brunch and it had plenty of choices with moderate to high pricing. The staff were friendly and attentive. We both had the filet eggs Benedict and it was delicious.
