I grew up on the gulf coast & have had my fair share of delectable fried shrimp. But WOW were these amazing- we went there twice:) Completely cleaned & deveined shrimp (I am so picky about cleaning shrimp) and fried to the perfect crispness. And the one place on the island they serve them with cocktail sauce! Cesar made excellent... More

We were staying a few up from this place so popped in for a quick lunch one day of fish and chips-nothing special but fine. There is a small pool there also. I think it cranks up in the evening as we heard a band playing from our place one night and it sounded great.

Went there for the Reggae band after eating at Soggy Peso. The band was great and we had a blast in the pool afterward!

Looked for an early supper place and decided to try Bahia Tortuga based on TA reviews. The margaritas were okay, but not the best on Isla. Chicken enchiladas were very good. We saw another diner having the steak sandwich and it looked great, so we came back another day. We were not disappointed. It was a fun atmosphere, very American... More

Just had dinner here and the food was excellent. Both the grouper and shrimp were served with hand cut piping hot fries and cole slaw. The margaritas were also very tasty! There is a lovely view of the bay and live music. Unfortunately I had to leave before the band played. I would definitely return.

We went to listen to the music and have dinner. The menu is a mix of American and Mexican cuisine. As good a philly cheese steak as I have had. We are here long term on our sailboat. Bahia Tortuga is one of our favorite places. Introduce yourself to Danny (the owner) Real nice man and quite helpful with directions... More

We stayed at Bahia Tortuga for five days..and every day we had food and drinks at the bar. We were hooked on the food/athmosphere and drinks.. The Cheese burgers are amazing and comes with so much fries that i had to share with four people because it was no way to finish the plate by myself. Please try the Philly... More

We met a group of folks here for a boat trip. It was quiet when we left Wed afternoon and hopping when we returned after sunset. Live music, stayed for a while. We returned the following day on a golf cart day and ate. Conch Fritters were awesome! Just what I was looking for :) French fries were a great... More

we were staying at Mia Reef which was a complete joke but happened to meet the owner of Bahia Tortuga on the Ferry to Isla. He asked us to come by his place, which we did - and im certainly glad!! We spent more time eating/drinking at this place than we did at our "all-inclusive" hotel. The staff was AWESOME,... More
