    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.

    As Sión as you walk in it males me qant to sing " Happy" Pharrell's HIT, well I must say, this place is a real HIT, from the ambiamce as soon as you walk in, the delicious "toasty" bread with just the right touch of garlic , the "addictive" ceviche with the crunchy plaintain and delicious guacamole , the pumpkin spice soup And ALL the soups always are an explosión of exotic tastes, we miss the Bahamian Black Grouper, we know there is a moratorium right now. 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.

    The cookies and cream bread budding is, hands down, the best dessert in Miami. Only problem is that it is only available at the Chef's whim. It would be nice if it were added as a regular staple on the menu. I promise once you try it, you will order it every time you're there.

    Dined on 7/19/2014
    I inquired about one of the specials, a lamb risotto with "Greek Gremolata." I asked our waiter what "Gremolata" was. He replied, "it's the way it's prepared." REALLY? This restaurant is too expensive to have waiters who can't be bothered. What he should have said is that the dish consisted of artfully prepared lamb ruined by chokingly over-seasoned inedible mint risotto. The snapper special was tasteless and amateurish. The worst was the disgusting vegetarian ravioli entree my daughter ordered. $25 for overcooked pasta in bland sauce clogged with indigestible cheese. Needless to say, no one ordered dessert. Only the ceviche appetizer was as delicious as ever. After so many years of having our family celebrations here, we may never return.

    Another wonderful meal at Ortanique. Food was well seasoned, creative and fresh. Service was good, attentive but not smothering. The wine list is of particular note here, eclectic in areas, traditional in others but very well balanced and allows guests to experience new wines that are hard to find on many wine lists.

    We ordered passion fruit mojitos, this was not our first time here and loved the mojito. When the check came I noticed an additional charge labeled "bar tab" line item. I called the server over and before I could ask her what that was about she said "you want to know about the bar tab" I said yes she replies "bartender charges an additional surcharge for passion fruit" I told her that I didn't recall that being like that before she smiled and said the bartender charges it. On the way out she stops me and my family again to go over the charges, I felt a little embarrassed as she hands me coupons for my next visit. The experience turned me away from this place, felt like I was treated as someone asking for free stuff.

He was super informative and steered us to some great wine. They are changing parts of the prix fix menu every day so try it while it is on the menu.

    It had been a year or two since we dined at Ortanique. Three of our party ordered off the "Coral Gables Restaurant Week" prix-fixe menu which offered some great choices, especially the coffee & chocolate (?) crusted Salmon. Gables "restaurant week" continues through June 20, so it's a great time to check out Ortantanique.
