Went for the great burgers we heard about, but none delivered that day. They have daily specials lingering around fish. In a new location, hotter than a bakery if your near the grill. Ceiling fans no air, so a lot better Oct. to Feb.

Alejandro is a magician with seasoning. Over the past 4 seasons, we have enjoyed his culinary expertise. His rib eye steak and hamburgers are excellent as well. This is a "don't miss " dining experience that will have you coming back for more.

Alejandro makes daily specials that are incredible. He will tell you what's fresh and what's best or make something special that you request. Great place to eat.

Had the best tuna ever here, and even when they didn't have tuna, other fish were equally well prepared

The experience just keeps getting better and better. The very best selection of dorado cuisine available; the fish tacos are superb, and the Hamburguesa California is ..... YUMMM! Chef Alejandro prepares his dishes with loving attention to quality, taste, presentation. What more to want!

I was so happy to discover the best Baja fish tacos outside of the Baja! They are hidden deep within the menu at Turtle Bay. Others in town will say they serve "Baja fish tacos", but they don't even come close! Chef Alejandro is a bit of a magician, he can make almost anything, and it will be done perfectly... More
