Ortanique on the Mile

Fodor's Review

Cascading ortaniques, a Jamaican hybrid orange, are hand-painted on columns in this warm, welcoming yellow dining room. Food is vibrant in taste and color, as delicious as it is beautiful. Though there is no denying that the strong, full flavors are imbued with island breezes, chef-partner Cindy Hutson's personal "cuisine of the sun" goes beyond Caribbean refinements. The menu centers on fish, since Hutson has a special way with it, and the West Indian Style Bouillabaisse

is not to be missed. Ceviches and soups change nightly. The mojitos here—and the cocktails in general—are amazing! Beyond the original Coral Gables location, Ortanique has now spread its island love to the islands themselves, with a location in Grand Cayman and another in Harbour Island, Bahamas.

I was very disappointed. It get such high ratings but it was just a overly spicey small meal. It was decorated line Pier I. I was really disappointed, especially for the price.

Ortinique served up a mile of excellent food!!!

From the moment we walked in to the moment we left, we were really impressed with Ortanique's delicate yet fun and refreshing atmosphere. The Key West Shrimp Salad was delicious and the Black Grouper dish was unbelievably scrumptious. When did fish ever start tasting this good. But the best finish to this wonderful meal was none other than the Banana Fritters. Yummy!!!!

For a Fun Floribbean Fete

This is a very pretty place. The staff is delightful. The food was exceptional. We were there for a very late lunch (2:30) so it was like having a meal at a friend's place. They provided for my most recently developed craving for mixed greens with candied nuts, hearts of palm, slices of fruit (mango) and a light citrusy dressing as a starter. Those in my party who had soup were quick to "sop" up the remains with terrific toasted garlic/scallion

french bread. I also got a taste of a marvelously light conch fritter. Don't chow down on too much bread if you've ordered the flash-fried grouper sandwich though -- it's served on a baguette of the very same bread (I felt wasteful eating my grouper, dressed with carmelized onions and papaya(?) mayonnaise and leaving the bread on the plate.) My lunch mates all were very happy with their jerk chicken pasta -- which also looked wonderful. Desserts here are also unique. Dulce tres leche (sp?) is served in a huge goblet: the light cake w/chunks of mango soaking in milky, mango liqueur topped with toasted merinque. Whee!
