“Sangria Sundays”
Reviewed March 18, 2014

Black Orchid is located on south side of the island. It was a bit of a ride from where we stayed, but well worth the trip. We went on Sunday. Just so happened they had Sangria Sunday and we each received a free sangria. I have to admit I can't really remember the last time I had sangria, but this may be the best I have ever had. No kidding.

We went for Lunch. Found this gem the last day of our vacation. The fish and chips was pretty good, I was a bit disappointed after tasting some of the other dishes that were ordered. Believe it or not the Margherita Pizza was really delicious! My friend ordered the tuna melt and it was to die for! Another friend had the grouper burger and it too was better than mine.

The service was 5-star! It opened in late 2012 and is a beautiful restaurant. We did look at the dinner menu and it offered a wide variety of options from pastas to seafood and steaks.

I would highly recommend.

“You MUST eat here”
Reviewed March 18, 2014 via mobile

We spent the last week at Athen's Gate resort (a MUST if you are looking for 5 star worthy accommodations) and Black Orchid was within walking distance. The shrimp dip is something I will crave until my return. The owners are just the sweetest people and Barry the bartender was an absolute delight. We actually planned our meals around his schedule! Witty and friendly beyond reproach. If in San Pedro, this should be added to your bucket lost- you will not me disappointed. Their signature drink is beautiful and delicious. Thank you all and we cannot wait to return!

“excelent food and service, best in San Pedro”
Reviewed March 18, 2014

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.

“Great service”
Reviewed March 16, 2014

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.
