    This is the second time I take advantage of their Miami Spice menu and I had the cornish hen which was delicious. The only thing I would say is that the service was not as I was accustomed to at Ortanique. Our waitress was very aloof and unattentive, she did not go out of her way to explain the menu or did she comeby to ask if everything was okay as is customary. I attribute this to the fact that the restaurant was packed this Saturday night.

    Happy to see the Ortanique is still busy and doing well after so many years. The food is outstanding - service less so, but more than adequate. I had not been in for some time, but took advantage of the Miami Spice promotion. Loved the Ceviche and the Swordfish. I had a bite of the pork tenderloin which was moist and tender. All the dessert options are winners as well. We will be back.

    We have dined her several times since the restaurant opened. This was the first time we tried the Miami Spice Menu. We tried the duck, the salmon, the garbanzos, conch fritters, mango tres leches, coconut panacotta, and Blue Mountain coffee. It was a good value. The mango tres leches stood out. The duck was interesting. The only drawback was the long wait. Despite having reservations, we had to wait 45 minutes at the bar until our table was ready. The hostess said she would get us a better table. It was fine. We did not mind waiting, but other patrons might object.

    My wife and I went for a Miami Spice night out, wife had grouper and I had swordfish. Both dishes were well prepared, although not the best I have had, both dishes were good. For appetizer I had fritters which were average, my wife had a salad. For desert wife went for the mango tres leches, a bit too sweet for me, I ended with coconut panna cotta which was good. Overall a nice night out with my wfe.

    We have been to this restaurant three or four times int the past. We were disappointed this time. The food was good, but the service was poor. There were four of us. The waiter brought the main course for three people but not mine. I waited a minute or two thinking that he would return. After five minutes. we got another waiter since ours never returned. I told him about my meal and that we had ordered two glasses of wine, which had not been delivered. I got my meal, but then had to ask another waiter about the wine. When we ordered coffee, we were excited about ordering the Jamaican Blue Mountain coffee as before. The waiter said that they did not have it, but had another coffee that was just as good. It was not.

    Love the restaurant, Cindy's food is more than amazing, the service is great. We had a great time. The appetizer of Caicos Island Conch and Corn Fritters were better than the conch fritters I had for lunch in the keys. That Mango Tres Leches dessert that Cindy makes is absolutely amazing, I would go there just for that. Also

    This is my third time to this fabulous restaurant. I am Jamaican but I have NEVER found a restaurant like this in Jamaica. They have taken island specialities and added a gourmet flair to them. THe TASTE of each dish, each sauce.....just explodes in your mouth. The service is first class, warm and friendly.

    This restaurant is located in miracle mile in historic Coral Gables. Viewing the restaurant from the street front you would never know the beauty inside. The food is good with a Jamaican twist. The wine list is extensive with prices for everyone. The personnel is pleasant, but the service is a three star. However, they can't be blame too much for this inefficiency because the restaurant is extremely full. Therefore, for the amount of clients, they tend to the service adequate to good. I will return to this restaurant and will be recommended to family and friends.

    This was our second visit and our first Miami Spice experience here or anywhere. Ortanique has terrific food and service. Great Mojitos. Can't go wrong here. The Miami Spice menu gave us each an appetizer, entree and dessert. I had ceviche, Swordfish with rice and red velvet ice cream. Ate every bite! There were 6 of us and we were there 2 hours. No rush, a wonderful restauraunt

    We had the Miami Spice menu starting with the fritters which were very good. For the main course we had the swordfish which was quite moist done with a nice sauce served with rice. Mango tres leches is a favourite and didn't disappoint. The restaurant has a very nice bar, with a good selection of scotch, unusual for a smaller restaurant.

The ending is just something that you remember forever, from the mango tees leches , the rum cake, it's an experience I think all who visit South Florida and Coral Gables can't miss!! My salute to The amazing Cindy and her loving Delius, to much success!! We loved the Cayman too!!!

    We had a reservation for 8:30 but had to wait for over an hour. Someone came over to apologize after abt 45 mins. We waited by the bar which was very tight. The bartender was wonderful and their special cocktail was delicious. We were finally seated and everything proceeded to take a long time. We were starving and it was well past 10 when they finally brought us some bread after asking twice. Everything we are was superb. EVERYTHING. But having to wait for each dish for so long was frustrating.
