Catered late for a large group. Got to give them credit!

Walked in on our first night in walldorf with group of 12 which then expanded to around 15/ 16 people. The front of house looked after and accommodated everyone. Food was lovely and fresh. Tuna salad portion was large. Bread was fresh and kept us going while we waited. All the team enjoyed there... read more

This is fake Spanish food, heavy and actually very German. I once ordered Escalivada, a Catala dish of vegetables bakes in the oven at low temperature. And they served to me deep-frozen chunks of pepers defrost at micro-wave oven. A disgrace. To cut a long story short: don't go there for the food.

Fantastic range of tapas! There are steaks, fish, salads and pizza dishes on the menu aswell but I'd recommend the tapas as you can choose so many delicious dishes and it should keep everyone in the group content. The staff are friendly and helpful to explain the dishes. Liked the 'old style' decor. Will definitely go back. Try choosing the... More

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... 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.
