We both had some mango margaritas which were 2X1 at 60MX, they were very tasty. We both had fish for main which was well flavoured but the portions were quite small. We found other places offering more bang for your buck, be it portion size, price and flavour.

This place has the BEST food and really good service. You have to try the champagne fish. Incredible! All 6 of us loved our meals. I would eat there every day

I've been to turtle bay 3 times (twice this trip once last year) the food is always fresh and the staff are great. I speak limited Spanish but most of there staff speak good English which makes it easy to communicate. I recommend going there when in Puerto Escondido!!

We have been in PE for a week and eaten at turtle bay 4 times. The food is fresh, well priced, and ricisiomo! I never write reviews on here but this place deserved to be recognized.

This nice small restaurant outside of downtown Puerto Escondido will be recommended and you should go. We both got Tuna steak and I have not had a better cooked nor have I tasted nicer tuna steak. A big thick piece of fish, rosy red in the middle and seared all around. The price was rediculously cheap, and even if the... More

We ended up at Turtle Bay for lunch and were talked into the fish tacos by one of the regular gringos. He said they are the best fish tacos he's ever had so we had to try them. The fish was breaded and deep fried, but still delicious. Comes on a soft taco shell with a bit of lettuce and... More
