I had good cooked fish, but had asked for mash (which was confirmed by waiter) and then given rice instead (with no comment made). My partner had surf and turf, and the prawns tasted of the steak. Which was a shame as they were a good size, and looked like they would be delicious. Food was fine, but nothing to... More

Alahandro makes really great food. We even took a seafood cooking class from him. We learned how he is always so careful to clean everything including seafood prior to cooking. His restaurant is generally busy and frequented by expats and locals alike. Highly recommend this place.

Turtle Bay is still an excellent restaurant however it is now well known. This past Christmas we were treated to Alejandro's food many times and it did not disappoint. Our teenagers loved the burgers and quesadillas and my husband and I always dined for the daily specials. The food is consistently excellent and we were always warmly welcomed.

Cosy little familyplace that seves up all regular seafoodfare, fresh and nice! They do however grill the greatest homemade burgers with fries around. Inexpensive, fast and very friendly!

I went to Turtle Bay Cafe with a group of friends because they had heard the fish tacos were amazing. Me on the other hand wanted chicken and everything I tried ordering had ran out. I would only go here if you are looking for good fish tacos

The food at Turtle Bay is fantastic. Alejandro and his staff run an outstanding restaurant with authentic flavours. The food is extremely fresh and great value for the money. The restaurant is clean and perfect for lunch and dinner. Yep- both meals in one day and it was delicious. Faves are: fish tacos, shrimp tacos, carnitas, seafood trio, mango habanero... More

Ate here several times during my weeklong stay. Friendly staff and excellent food. I recommend fish or shrimp tacos or the habanero mango shrimp, but everything looks good.

Turtle Bay is a little out of the way, located near the West End of the strip in Rinconada. However it is welcomely lit with a few outdoor tables. The interior is bright, spotless and cheerful. In the back quarter Alejandro and staff work their magic in the open kitchen. This is our fourth year in Puerto. I have not... More

Alejandro and his staff are excellent. There is great fresh fish and seafood here. The sauces are accents not slathered. Veggies fresh and colourful. Other food there is really good too. If you like fresh fish masterfully prepared, this is the place!
