Named after a rare tropical citrus fruit, the restaurant is elegant in an islandy kind of way. Some of the signature dishes from the creative Caribbean palette include pumpkin bisque with pepper sherry sauce, jerk chicken penne, conch fritters, snapper escovitche, and grilled tuna with papaya and mango salad. Also try a broiled mozzarella salad, plus some fantastic seafood like mussels in a coconut curry broth, red snapper ceviche, and spicy calamari salad. Portions are large, so two appetizers can be had as a meal, or an entrée can be happily shared. Those with room for dessert are richly rewarded with creations from the ordinary (rum cake) to the outrageous (drunken banana fritters).
$6 Mojitos, all day and night.

Stop by for a complimentary taste of Bervini Prosecco champagne.
When Orson Welles described style as being "unique for yourself yet identifiable to others," he could have been talking about Ortanique. Chef Cindy Hutson's Caribbean-based "cuisine of the sun" is bright enough to delight in a coal mine, but achieves optimum taste when in harmony with the warm and vivid sunset colors, flowing gauze curtains, mahogany woods, and hand-painted motifs of fruits and flowers gracing the 120-seat room (plus terraced outdoor garden). The buoyant environment pairs with the light, happy food like mango with champagne — meaning if these walls could eat, they would have Caribbean bouillabaisse, Bahamian black grouper with orange liqueur sauce, and a jerked pork chop with rum-guava glaze.
I love this restaurant & well worth the price. Just thinking about their food makes me drool. I always make it a point to stop during Miami Spice, but half the time I end up ordering off the menu. Recommend having the Rum Zacapa (23 yrs) at the bar for a starter.

We have grown comfortable with Ortanique since it opened "on the Mile" in July 1999. So much so that we tend to take it for granted. It's like a favorite pair of jeans forgotten in the drawer after you buy a succession of new shirts and jackets. Chef/owner Cindy Hutson's Caribbean-influenced "Cuisine of the Sun" never grows old. Cracked conch with plantain chips ($13), Red Stripe-steamed mussels ($14 small, $18 large), signature jerk chicken penne pasta ($17 lunch, $23 dinner), escovitch... More »

BEST RESTAURANT NAME Ortanique on the Mile 278 Miracle Mile Coral Gables 305-446-7710 www.cindyhutsoncuisine.com Once we eliminated all one-word monikers owing to lack of distinctiveness (Acqua, Ago, Atrio, Azul, Balans, Baleen, Chispa, Ola, Spris, Talula, Tiramisu, Touch, Wish), we were pretty much down to Schnitzel Haus, Tap Tap, Pacific Time, and a few others.

Some diners are scared off by this Coral Gables success story's fancy-schmancy menu and upscale service and ambiance. The few others who avoid it are people who want more food than garnish on their plate. Both groups should go anyway for one simple reason: the pork chop. How simple is that? And it's way bigger than any garnish. Besides, this is not just a pork chop -- this is the ultimate, the champion of the world, the thickest, sweetest, most satisfying piece of pig flesh in town. Down... More »
When they had their place called Norma's on Miami Beach, partners Delius Shirley and executive chef Cindy Hutson built a reputation as masters of Jamaican cuisine, in part because Delius's mom Norma was their mentor, and the tiny kitchen in the Lincoln Road eatery limited the number of ingredients that could be kept on hand. But when the pair moved their operation to Coral Gables a few seasons ago, the name changed and the menu expanded to reflect the possibilities of a larger work space.... More »
Proprietor Delius Shirley and chef-proprietor Cindy Hutson had the right idea when they closed Norma's on the Beach! and opened Ortanique. Their first Miami restaurant, named for gourmet Jamaican chef Norma Shirley (Delius's mom and Cindy's mentor) was a solid, impressive venture that we honored as Best Caribbean Restaurant year after year. But with Ortanique (and with apologies to Norma) the specter of a mother's influence has been removed, not just from the name but from the entire spirit... More »
