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!

The food at Turtle Bay was delicious! Fantastic fresh fish, good sangria. What's not to like? The owners were very kind and even made us a special dish the second night we ate there.

My friends and I had a great experience here. I had the durado which was delicious! Seasoned perfectly. My friend had the rib-eye steak which was one of the best steaks I've tried in a long time and my other friends had fish tacos which were also very good. The staff was very friendly and made the meal fun for... More

My favorite spot in Puerto for seafood, specifically pulpo. Always fresh and well prepared. Worth the small commute from Zicatela.

Visited this restaurant with some friends a couple of months ago. Finally got around to writing a quick review. The service is good, prices are ok, and the food is very good. One of the few places in Puerto with decent burgers. Would absolutely recommend a visit here.

Lovely fresh fish. Had prawn tacos for lunch and fish for dinner. Bottle of wine same cost as the meal. Should have reduced our intake!

We ate dinner here twice during our one week stay in Puerto. Our family ate fairly diverse items: hamburger & fries for my son, authentic mexican burrito for my husband, and I got the special of Prawns in Adillo sauce. ALL GREAT! The restaurant is spotless, other patrons seemed to be regulars, we were welcomed warmly. Chef Alejandro and his... More

The food is all made from scratch using only hand selected ingredients and the freshest of seafoods/ or meat. The help bends over backwards to ensure you happiness with the eating experience.the dishes are impeccably served, hot, and his... More
