My husband and I were in Manteo shopping and checked Trip Advisor for a restaurant and found Ortega'z. Nestled in the heart of Manteo's charming waterfront district, the food does not disappoint. The menu is varied and portions are generous. Flavors are excellent.

Stopped here for lunch and it was so unexpectedly wonderful! Best pulled pork quesadillas with pineapple ever. I had the fish tacos which were also incredible. Everything was above average. Great service too. This place is located in the center of this adorable little town with a lot of history. Highly recommend it.

A great atmosphere, casual dining with a nice wine list. Available for lunch or dinner. In the summer the patio is the place to dine.

I ate here twice for lunch on consecutive days. I had a shrimp burrito special the first day. It was a good burrito but a bit dry for my liking. I added a good helping of sriracha to spice and moisten the burrito up. On day two, I had a Southwestern Burger. It was the real deal - very tasty... More

This a great little restaurant that serves the freshest of local caught seafood mixed with great southwestern flair. The bar offers fresh drinks and a wide variety of craft beers for those who love those. The staff makes you feel right at home and most anytime; you will find the owners there.

Delicious food and nice wine selection. Homemade chips and fresh salsa. YUM! Less likely to have long wait times because ortegaz is a bit hidden and not as much of a tourist spot. Located in downtown manteo area near the waterfront. One of our favorites and not too expensive

Our party of six ate dinner at this delightful spot in Manteo in January. Nice wine and beer selection. Good variety of dinner entrees. Great service and casual, comfortable environment. We loved the crab macaroni and cheese appetizer and the shrimp and sausage Alfredo (Food Network approved by Guy Fieri!). Fish tacos were decent but not as good as the... More

Off season in Manteo, nice and quiet. Stopped in Ortega'z one night just for drinks at the bar and returned a second night for dinner. Had fish tacos and chicken fajitas. Both delicious and plenty of food. We would return.
