We ate here twice. We especially liked the chicken cooked in a real caribbean style. The habanero salsa on the table, freshly prepared, was outstanding.

Ate here the first night we were in Tortuguero and absolutely loved everything that was served. My husband got the chicken with caribbean sauce and I got the fish filet. The rice was awesome, it had pumpkin in it! And the neighborhood dogs that kept us company as we ate on the patio added a distinct Tortuguero feel that we... More

Travelled around Costa Rica for 2 weeks and this has to be the best place I ate at. The menu's simple but there's plenty of flavour and taste in Miss Miriam's cooking. The afternoon football game is always worth eating along to, best seats on the island.

Very tasty Caribbean food, with friendly cooks, its a very "rustic" place but don't be put off we had a feast which the whole family enjoyed - I challenge you to eat more than a dribble of their hot sauce though - wow!

Our first meal in town and it was "hands down" the best of our visit! We cannot say enough good things about the food; yummy, fresh, plentiful. I can't wait to eat here again!

Great little restaurant. As others have said, slow service, but only because everything is freshly cooked, and what's the rush anyway when you can enjoy a cold beer while you wait. And it's definitely worth the wait - tastiest Caribbean chicken ever!

Don't judge the look of restaurants by European standards. Miss Miriam's like most little places in Tortuguero is rough around the edges but that is the charm. Service is slow but where are you rushing to? Sit back and enjoy a couple of beers while you wait...they may even have to send out to the supermarket for more! It's all... More

We had a nice meal at Miss Miriam's. It was right next door to our hotel. The food had a nice local flavor to it. Service started slowly, but I guess people in Tortuguero aren't in any rush!!!

We had delicious food here, and such generous portions that we were absolutely stuffed before we were even close to finishing! We had fried fish, which was served with a large salad, homemade chips, amazing coconut rice, and a second type of rice. The prices were really reasonable and far cheaper than the other places we ate at in Tortuguero.... More
