An oasis of local food

A lot of great restaurants around, but after finding this small family restaurant we were in love. The food is really great, very home oriented, not like chain restaurants food. The price was incredibly low compared to the other restaurants around. We should read here the great reviews first, as we... read more

This place is a diamond in the rough. Extremely courteous staff, fresh food in an open setting. I'm pretty sure I ate here three times during my stay. The huevos rancheros are some of the best I've had. The seafood dinner entres are really delicious.

We have been coming to Acapulco for 20 years, and La Tortuga always is our first and last stop. Gustavo and Rufino always make us feel at home, and the food is great. Over the years, we have had most of the things on the menu. The friends who joined us this year had beef and said it was the... More

This is a regular stop on my visits at last once and usually twice. I had my favorite chicken enchiladas in a poblano chili sauce and they were outstanding. Also shared the Mexican pizza with friends. I love this concoction of spinach, chorizo and cheese on tostados. Yum. Other dishes at the table were the Tortuga salad which consists of... More

This establishment if an old favorite and every year when we return we find it to be improved. Gustavo and Ruffino are great waiters and the food is excellent. They have the biggest red snappers in Acapulco and the fish is prepared properly. Give it a try.

We have been customers of thie establishment for many years. Whenever we dine here we order the whole red snapper, which is always too large but done perfectly. The appetizers are a meal in themselves and are worth the visit by themselves.

Have dined there 3 times son far this season and all 3 meals were excellent. The whole red snapper is way too large and the chili rellanos are always perfect. My only regret is the wonderful coconut ice cream is no longer available. Gustavo and Ruffino are to be commended for their operation of an old favorite.
