First we were met by Danny the owner, and his service was WAY ABOVE and BEYOND our expectations. Danny is truly bilingual and has a wonderful attitude in helping hapless gringos. He is intelligent and resourceful and was an incredible asset to us. The rooms are large and clean, the pool is small and immaculate with clean freshwater, the restaurant/bar... More

We went here a night when there was a cool reggae band. Cool atmosphere but the food was not great. I had the chicken tenders that were greasy and seemed like they weren't cooked all the way through. Fries soggy & greasy..some people like them but not for me. My wife had the Philly with habenero & wasn't impressed either.... More

Fun little island bar on the docks on the bay side. Part of a small Inn/hotel? Decorated very nice , island style. Very pretty views of bay with seating around dock. Great drinks. We were really happy we found this place for happy hour. Would definitely go back.

We went twice for the music and once for a late lunch. The music great drinks cold. For your lunch had the fish and chips not bad. Would go back for both music and a snack. Bar food!

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.
