Good Food, Great Atmosphere

Dined at Turtle Bay with another couple on February 4th. We sat outside on the patio/roadway along with many other tourists and long term residents. The food was very good, I had the 'Jalapeño Burger', and my wife had the Fish Tacos'. We both enjoyed the tortilla soup as an appetizer. The fish... read more

Our first visit here the tacos lived up to the hype of best tacos in town. My dorado was done to perfection, the service lovely. Second visit we waited 45 minutes for our food yet it was still delicious yet the service was horrid. We gave it two more tries. Each time the foid got worse and the service varied... More

Turtle bay Cafe is just a little distant from the mainstream of Puerto Escondido .... but, well worth the trip. The menu was both interesting and extensive, the wine list offered more than most other restaurants we experienced in PE - there were even choices of wine "by the copa". The fish that we had was perfectly cooked and the... More

After having read the reviews, we thought we'd give it a try. While looking at the menu outside, other customers having dinner were telling us how great the burgers were. And they were. Everything from the bun to the condiments were really good and the burger itself was nice and juicy. We tried the jalapeno burger and the blue cheese... More

It's always nice to sit outside and take in the tropical breeze! It's even better when the food and wine are perfectly matched! My filet mignon was not only cooked to perfection and flavourful, it was so tender, you cut it with a fork! I don't normally eat fries, but theirs are home made! A variety of food choices for...

Excellent food and great service. I would highly recommend this restaurant. The shrimp burritos were so very good and they gave the best coffee/espresso in town!

The menu is great with lots of options but they add a menu board each day with those specials. Obviously catering to the tourists they also have an extensive wine list and drink specials - our portions were large and great value - this plate of Baja style fish tacos was only 110 pesos

I've eaten here twice during this visit and enjoyed the food and the lovely dining area both times. Once I had dorado with a garlic sauce that was delicious and last time I had excellent fish tacos. The food is served with justifiable pride from an open kitchen at the rear of the dining area. I'm going back tomorrow with... More

The atmosphere was nice. They have a good range of items on the menu. The. Seafood was very good but ,the steak was tough. Stick to the seafood and you will have an excellent meal.

We started our meal with guacamole which was made fresh and was delicious. We dined on fresh mahi mahi with a sauce that didn't overpower the taste of the fish. There was rice and fresh vegetables. One of the best seafood meals in Puerto.
