Great food & great wine

It's not the first time I've been to La Tortuga and I still find it to be one of the best places to eat in Walldorf. The setting is really nice, it brings a little bit of Spanish air. Although it is a pretty big place, it's always packed. If you want to go with a large group of people... read more

I live in Walldorf and have eaten at this place several times. There is much better Spanish food, and prices are high (which is common in SAP city :-). But some of the tapas are quite good, the cocktails are large and contain real booze, and the atmosphere is cozy. So I prefer to use it as a bar, not... More

The atmosphere and ambience is a nice mix especially if you would like to bring a team or a group. The service was mixed, depending on your availability of the english language. I asked for butter or olive oil for the bread they served, and they looked at my strangely (irish quirk maybe :)) This was my third time here,... More

We enjoyed our visits to La Tortuga very much. Many tasty tapas, and fruity sangria, but our favorite was the "Feurig gebrutzelte Paprikawurst (Chorizo) in Oel u. Chili", or chorizo sausage in chili oil. It goes well with bread from the "Brot mit Aioli" dish, which is also excellent.

I had been wanting to try this restaurant and tapas for some time, so when one of my favorite restaurants was closed the other day, I decided to hop in here to give it a shot. While I imagine the food was exactly what it was supposed to be, I just don't get the whole idea of having a bunch... More

Lovely Tapas - try the roasted almonds, spinach dip an the meatballs - the chicken wings were great too and so were the patatas bravas. Nice helpful staff and a good selection of drinks, as well as a wide choice of main courses. Great coffee as well.

Visited La Tortuga twice. Both times, the service was on the poor side. There is a good wine selection. The food is good, but doesn't make up for the poor service. The atmosphere is good. Would go there again, but it wouldn't be my first choice.
