Stopped for lunch and sat at outside table. Surprisingly good food Guatemala cuisine. We had the Grill Shrimp and the Shrimp scamp style both delicious. Excellent chips, salsa and tortilla.

I dined here twice…once for breakfast which consisted of two eggs and runny beans. Tasted terrible and looked worst. Second time attended an opening celebration…you'd think that they would do a great job since they were promoting themselves. Again food almost inedible.

used them for catering at work - the food was delicious and the service was excellent too! Authentic food, served in nice appropriate sizes for the business mixer we were hosting.

Good food, but can be difficult to order, if you don't speak fluent Spanish. It depends on who is there. The food is always fresh, and it is tasty, especially if you are vegetarian/vegan. The salsa is fresh made daily and is delicious. The staff...More

Ortega's is the best restaurant, by far, in Downtown Danbury. Pleasant and friendly service; exquisite, family-based Guatemalan food (the real stuff!); and a neighborhood buzz, where non-alikes mingle and laugh. I'd actually give it a 4+. They are family, in many ways.

Thoroughly enjoyed my grilled chicken dish. Taste like it came right off my grill at home. I would have preferred if they would have pounded the chicken breast before cooking it because it was a bit too thick. It came with rice and black beans....More

First off, do not be put off by the location or the size of Ortegas; Ives St. used to be "Restaurant Row" but now there are only a few left. Ortegas is one of the survivors and they are worth a visit. The signage says...More

We pulled off I-84 to find a place to watch the World Cup and this was a really great find. The waitress and proprietress were very welcoming and let us find the channels we wanted (they have 2 TVs). The food was quite good --...More
