This longstanding Coral Gables favorite serves up Chef/Owner Cindy Hutson’s award-winning cooking—featuring local ingredients and bold Latin, Caribbean and Asian flavors—in a colorful, tropical-themed setting.
“You won't find food this good or this imaginative in the islands -- Ortanique is island cooking redefined.” – Sun Sentinel
“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.” – Fodor’s
“Chef/owner Cindy Hutson's Caribbean-influenced "Cuisine of the Sun" never grows old. Cracked conch with plantain chips, Red Stripe-steamed mussels, signature jerk chicken penne pasta, escovitch whole yellowtail snapper with Scotch bonnet pepper, Bahamian mahi-mahi with lemon-orange boniato sweet plantain mash, West Indian-style bouillabaisse in curried coconut broth — let's face it, you can't get this sort of fare anywhere else in town. The staff is warm, the décor is set in festive motifs of flowers and ortanique oranges, and the wine list has more gravitas than you'd expect from a modest neighborhood establishment. Cocktails rock too.” – Miami New Times
Warm woods and a richly hued palette of sunset yellow and burnt sienna create a relaxed, inviting ambience. Walls hand-painted with flowers and ortanique oranges add a tropical flair (as does the flamingo just outside). The bustling space seats 124, and includes banquette “porches” made private with delicate, draped fabrics.
