I live with a disabled vet, who served his country for over 20 years. It was our 10th Anniversary together. We saved up to go out to the Blue Orchid. The meal, drinks and atmosphere were great...until a woman came in with two girls who were chasing each other and trying to outscream each other, with the mother laughing along... More

The view from the observation deck is spectacular....you can see several islands and they have a diagram so you can tell where each one is located. Then in for a delightful dinner of Sea Bass and Salmon. Delish indeed !!

We were in a taxi headed to mountaintop overlook and the driver told us they would be closed. We asked a resident in our taxi for dinner recommendations on the mountain and she said The Blue Orchid. The driver took us there, we didn't have a reservation, and it was Valentines Day! They were full but didn't turn us away... More

My wife and I reserved an early seating because we wanted to enjoy the restaurant's wonderful view of Megan's Bay and the down islands of Tortola and Jost VanDyke. We started with a relaxing drink at the bar and moved to dinner. After placing our dinner order we spent a few minutes on the observation deck while our meal was... More

We finally got a chance to dine here. Of course the views of the north side of the island are amazing as it's situated in the Greathouse at the Botanic Gardens. Everyone enjoyed their meals and the service was exceptional. Personally I had the Delmonico steak and it was done perfectly. Be sure to call early for reservations as it... More

We booked a reservation for 5 and were seated promptly. The waitress was attentive and friendly. The food was the best we have ever had bar none. Our group ordered beats, bruschetta and crab cake appetizers. They were all excellent dishes. The salads and entrees of filet mignon, lobster, sea bass and salmon left us speechless. All said it was... More

My husband, son and I visited Blue Orchid for our anniversary dinner. Everything was perfect and far beyond our expectations. Beautiful decor (West Indie style), unbeatable view, perfect service, excellent drinks and wine list - but most important of all - absolutely overwhelmingly good food. The tuna tartar was to die for, huge portion. The duck was the best I... More

We went to brunch at the Blue Orchid and it was great! The atmosphere is very welcoming and the staff was pleasant. The food was really delicious and the 2-for-1 bloody mary's or mimosas was great! Definitely some of the locals favorite spot. Everyone on the island suggested it.
