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 !!

This is my first time writing a review on Trip Advisor, but I had such a wonder experience last night at the Blue Orchid that I thought I would share. My husband and I had a very romantic dinner, he the lamb and me the short ribs. Absolutely excellent food and service, not to mention that they also had our... More

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.

Had nice relaxing Sunday night dinner. The Chilean sea bass is excellent. Our waitstaff however was a bit off which is not the norm for this establishment. Sunset is the best time to go for spectacular views of the ocean. Treat yourself to a pleasurable evening amongst the locals and enjoy dinner.
