“Best mojitos and wonderful Caribbean inspired meals”
Reviewed April 15, 2014

One of our favorite places for many years, have shared great meals on special occasions with friends, family and out of town guests. Excellent service, food, ambiance, and the best mojitos ever! Happy hour at bar with bar food is also great, but must stay for dinner and enjoy their garlic and parsley butter bread - it's the best!!! Also highly recommend their boullaibaise, not your typical tomato based; rather it's mild Jamaican curry and spices - out of this world - and changes daily depending on what fish and seafood is fresh and available. Also recommend their ceviche served with guacamole and plantain chips. Definitely a place to go to time and again.

The food is just too good to explain in a little online review. It was orgasmic. The host was wonderful, I was a bit under dressed but there was no problem. Sophisticated yet non-pretentious, the servers were awesome, it was a great dining experience all around. I would recommend this place to anyone. The brie salad, bisque soup, lamb dish and rum cake was all very well done!

“Eclectic fun menu”
Reviewed March 25, 2014

Promising "cuisine of the sun" - whatever that means - Ortanique delivers a creative, eclectic mix of dishes heavy on seafood but light in all other ways. Salmon and rice was delicate and well-flavored, omnipresent codfish balls were light and flavorful and black bean soup was thick and spicy. Drinks continued this spicy creativity with mixes involving great combinations. Service is helpful and attentive and the decor makes for an atmospheric experience on the inside or sit outside and enjoy well-turned out Coral Gablians saunter pass. All of this is quite expensive though with dinner and drinks running $60 per excluding dessert. In short, a great place if you can afford it.

“Our favorite restaurant in Coral Gables.”
Reviewed March 4, 2014

The flavors of the Caribbean find their way into all the spectacular dishes served at Ortanique on Miracle Mile. Cindy Hutson designs dishes like a kaleidoscope of color, with soothing cocktails and delectable desserts to match.

“A Real Caribbean Treasure ”
Reviewed February 10, 2014 via mobile

What a find! Located along Miracle Mile in Coral Gables, this is a true gem. Every menu item looked more adventurous than the next without taking us outside our comfort zone. From appetizer through our meals, the flavors were nothing less than fantastic. An upscale and vibrant establishment, we had a very comfortable table. The only minor knock for us was the wait staff, which seemed to be nowhere near as enthusiastic as every other part of this restaurant.
