I cannot believe it took me this long to try Ortanique. This is a restaurant you can easily fall in love with. In fact, Ortanique on the mile is true to its name.Sweet and exotic, an ortanique is a hybrid orange native to Jamaica. The moment you walk in, you feel like you've been swept away to a paradise island. Beautifully decorated, the warm orange glow of the tiny spider-like lamps makes it truly romantic...perfect for an intimate chat.
The menu provides a culinary journey to the spice islands and the food doesn't disappoint. The "Cuisine of the Sun" will delight your palette in the creative, passionate melding of Carib-Euro-Asian influences served by the friendly waitstaff who's more than eager to please.
You cannot skip the mojitos. They are fabulous! But a word to the wise, drink slowly they pack a punch! The conch appetizer was fresh and delicious. Melts in your mouth. Try the Guava Smoked Salmon...mmmm... or the pork chops. They were so thick, the chef had to butterfly them.
Before making your selections, note the entrees with an asterix... they belong to the prix-fix menu. Ortanique lets you have an appetizer, entree and dessert for a mere $36.00! What a deal for such delicious cuisine.
Hats off to the head chef, Cindy Hutson, for perfecting the fusion of Latin and Caribbean cuisine. I cannot say it enough: Ortanique on the Mile is amazing. True to its name, it’s sweet, exotic and definitely a local gem.
