We had eaten at some rather poor restaurants on this vacation prior to finding Ortega'z, so we were thrilled to have at great meal. Our family of three had the fish tacos, Parmesan chicken and the tequila lime chicken. Great food. Great service.

The best place on the coast of NC to go for great seafood, great service, and reasonable prices. This cool little restaurant is tucked alongside main street Manteo. A stone's throw from the water. Walk off that wonderful meal browsing the waterfront and see all the sights while you're there.... Noteworthy is that this restaurant was featured on "Diners, Driveins... More

Was looking forward to visiting Ortega'z. We are in OBX this week and stopped in for dinner last night prior to going to The Lost Colony performance. Dined with my Wife and 7 year old Nephew. I'm sorry to report that I was a bit disappointed. We were in early enough and were seated quickly. Service was average and atmosphere... More

I loved visiting the small town of Mateo that this establishment was in. The meal we had was ok, no one was blown away by what they had to eat. (Nachos, she crab soup, fish tacos, and fried-chicken salad) Do not go here if you are having a Mexican craving (trip advisor states it's Mexican), this southwest restaurant is not... More

I live in Manteo and enjoy eating dinner at Otega'z in downtown Manteo. I enjoy their Chopped Salad, Nachos and dinners. My husband just had an amazing steak fajita. The staff is always pleasant and the food is delicious.

We decided to try out Ortega'z before our ghost tour because we could get a discount there. The food was excellent and you receive large portions. The homemade chips and queso were some of the best I've ever had. I wish I lived closer so I could have some right now! Everyone in our large group loved it.

We have been so lucky this trip, we've tried new places that are just outstanding! This is one of them. Had the best cuban sandwich ever. The steamed vegetables were delicious, crisp and fresh. My husband's Southwestern chicken salad was delicious as well. Our waiter was the absolute best, Jose H. ask for him, you won't be disappointed. Everyone was... More
