Diner Reviews
  • "Visited from New York while on vacation. The setting is beautiful. Restaurant is located in the Camana Bay shopping area, short drive from the seven mile beach. Food was good by New York standards, but overpriced. Service was exceptional. We were a group of 20, including 6 kids who shared courses. It was a bit disappointing to discover a $5 course-sharing charges attached to our $800+ bill???Be aware that prices are listed in local currency : at the time of our dinner that resulted in 20% greater US dollar charge vs. The listed price..."

  • "Lovely dining spot in Camana Bay. Great ambiance, personable staff and awesome food. Seafood shines in the ceviches and fresh catch menu items. No rush to move you along, they are delighted to have you dine with them. Would be fun for happy hour as well as they have cozy couch areas. Great choice."

  • "Great place for outdoor dining in the evenings, EXCEPT when seated next to 30 people in a cigar smoking club! The smells and smoke were overpowering and ruined an otherwise fine dinner."

  • "We were in and out in 45 min Thats ridiculous. Our appetizers came before our cocktails We would have ordered a bottle if wine but we knew our food would be gone before it came"

  • "Out of our whole week in Cayman with dozens of dining options, I was really looking forward to this restaurant most of all. The idea sounded so promising, and the reviews made it sound like Ortanique delivered on the hype. Well, we were disappointed. We ate in so many superior restaurants on Grand Cayman during the rest of the trip, and they were all striving to be restaurants -- not cash cows for investors. To begin with, even though it was not particularly crowded, we waited excessively at every stage. Getting the drink order in, then the food orders. Seeing the first course come out, only to wait 30 minutes for the entrees. The seafood was overly salted, the sweetness and texture needlessly cloaked in sharp sodium. Shrimp was not fresh."

  • "Ortanique , at Camana Bay, on Grand Cayman has food that surpasses the quality of most restaurant s. This is our second vacation to Grand Cayman, and the ambience, food, presentation is hard to top, even in New York......but the view to the sea and tha ability to dine indoors or outdoors is wonderful. First time we went for dinner, this past Saturday, we had lunch. Fabulous."

  • "Great place. Too expensive, though. I ordered a Norma Salad ($14.00) and added scallops. They charged me $12.00 extra for two pieces of scallop. That was ridiculous."

  • "The food was outstanding, the waitress engaging and the setting very nice. While a bit pricey, the cost was overshadowed by the quality of the dishes. We had a snapper ceviche-tuna tartare combo that was amazing. Our entrees were every bit as good. My wife had the coconut shrimp and seared diver scallops and I had the ahi prepared island style. Awesome! We would definitely return."

  • "This is our third trip to Ortanique. We make it a point to have dinner here whenever we vacation in Grand Cayman. It is the perfect combination of superb food, charming outdoor eating and capable service in a peaceful, relaxing setting."

  • "We were very impressed by the food at th Caribbean fusion spot - the chocolate/cocoa crusted salmon was incredible! And the view from the waterfront table was great! We loved it all!"

  • "Lovely location, excellent food, pricey but well worth it. Staff, particularly Maria from England and mwangi from Kenya added to the evening. Well worth a visit."

  • "Some dishes were very good, but not the special duck confit salad. Duck confit should be succulent with crispy skin. There was not a fleck of crisped duck skin and the meat was desiccated to the point of being hard and tasteless—should have been called duck jerky. Serving were generous—to make up for quality? Had the feel of a chain restaurant. For the prices, Ortanique is too inconsistent and pretentious."

  • "We had a wonderful and memorable meal......must try the braised short rib app....one of the best ever!"

  • "We dined at Ortanique at an early seating on New Year's Eve to enjoy the fireworks with our daughter. I was absolutely (as were our guests) delighted by the service and the food we received. The team at Ortanique were fabulous from the time we arrived until the time we left. Thank you so much!"

  • "Ortanique was just what I was looking for the other night for dinner. I had the braised short ribs for an appetizer and the catch of the day which was wahoo for an entree. Both were exceptional. I ate at the bar and had outstanding service from a very knowledgeable bartender. He pared the wines with both dishes well. Their wine selection was diverse and of an appropriate quality and price point. I summary, I enjoyed dining at Ortanique and would certainly recommend it to a friend."

  • "This second restaurant, the other in Miami serves great tasting, generous portions, and nice presentation. The service was less than wonderful due to not enough staff. They did try but the were waits for all parts of the meal which was longer then one wishes. Dishes prepared with good planning, tasty and different. Would recommend but plan to make it your only activity if going on a busy night!"

  • "To start with, the food was amazing. Even though there were only two of us and we didn't spend big money, the staff made us feel very special. Every dish we asked for more information on was described in great detail with obvious knowledge of the meals. We didn't feel abandoned for a moment and there was always someone available when we needed something. We sat outside and it was perfect. Will definitely be going to Ortanique more regularly, the food really is that good. Also, they do great coffee!"
