Food was amazing! The cheese shrimp dip was to die for! service was outstanding, the owners were fantastic! the husband wife team made sure you had a great experience! The kitchen was immaculate you can tell they enjoy what they are doing. The waitstaff was on point. If you ever get a chance stop in you won't regret it

We stayed at Hol Chan Reef Villas recently and found ourselves stopping at the Black Orchid several times for drinks and appetizers. We were totally hooked on their Key Lime Martini's. The wait staff is friendly, and bartenders amazing! Highly recommend.

The place is located very near to Athens Gate, we went to this place for dinner. Wine was great but food mediocre, the shrimp dish was too sweet, Owner took it of our check which was great. Lone Star Grill and Robins Kitchen nearby have better food in my opinion, possible we had wrong choices.

We are a completely different dining experience with unique international cuisine.....Certainly not... More

To celebrate my birthday with 11 friends, we had a wonderful meal here. Service was attentive and meal delicious. My Sea Bass was amazing. The shrimp were huge and tasty. The open air restaurant is well worth the drive south of San Pedro.

Even if it's hot out, try the shrimp dip. Super tasty. We got the blackened snapper, which was a little spicy and wasn't overwhelmingly blackened; the spicy shrimp, which had some tasty mild heat; and the grouper with coconut rice. We're planning a repeat since it's near our accommodations!

The food here was incredible!!! I couldn't believe how delicious everything was. We each tried a different dish so we could share. Everything was amazing and couldn't have been better.

Our family of 20 was served timely and with delicious food. Our grandchildren were entertained with pirate hats and coins. This was the best meal of our trip.
