“A-Ma-ZING”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 November 2013

We were the friends that went with Kari S. The staff was helpful and the food was so great. It is a very cute place with a wonderful menu. The sangaria is the best on the island, so try it! Their bathrooms are lovely and so it the whole place. Apparently the fresh bread is amazing (sadly I can't eat it) but people rave about it. A must try if you want to eat a great meal with some great staff on the south end. I highly recommend this place for multiple reasons. It was the largest piece of fresh fish and cooked to perfection. The coconut rice is also yummy.

“Amazing food and people!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 November 2013

We had Sunday Brunch, lunch and a wonderful dinner at this restaurant, 3 different times. The food was amazing and the people are so friendly. We met Tom and Judyann Horton on our first visit. They made us feel at home and were very gracious, and helpful and made our stay monumental. We will be back soon and will visit The Black Orchid more than once .Rain won't keep us away. Your friends Phil and Misty Herzer from Montana!

“Excellent experience!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 November 2013 via mobile

I had the chefs special of lobster tail and a ribeye. This wasn't on the lunch menu, but the owners went out of their way to offer it since it was my birthday. The meal was fabulous, wine selection was excellent, and service was impeccable! If you are staying in town, just take a taxi for about $10US, it'll totally be worth the trip! Very nice people trying to make a great restaurant.
