We recently traveled to San Pedro on a 12 day vacation and ate in about a dozen restaurants while there. We found the Black Orchid to be the best value for food, service and atmosphere.
We ate there several times and enjoyed dinners and lunch. The owners are very friendly and attentive and their bartender and service manager, Dave Barry is the best, We would strongly recommend the Black Orchid. Although it is not down town , the location is quiet and relaxing and definitely worth the short drive.
Our group celebrated my wife's birthday there and the owners and staff were fantastic hosts making it a memorable experience.If we return to San Pedro we will go back to the Black Orchid.

We hadn't,t booked and arrived about 8pm, the restuarant was very busy, luckily the owner was working the bar due to staff shortages and although he and every one were extremely busy he apologised and said he would not be able to fit us in for at least an hour which we said was fine we would chill with a few bears at the bar. This place is quite a way south of San Pedro so I would advise book a table it's a long way to go to get turned away as 2 parties did that came after 8.30 pm. The staff brought us the menus at the bar whilst we waited for a table to clear. We had mushrooms wrapped in bacon with soft cheese centre to share then fillet and peppered lasagne for mains all delicious can definitely recommend the food, atmosphere and service.
