Delicious food in a laid back style

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... read 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

There are few restaurants that offer traditional local food and this is in my opinion one of the best! I had the Caribbean Chicken which was tender and had lots of flavours. Price-wise it's not as cheap as a backpacker could hope to find, however my dinner with a beer came to 15$ US - an average price for the... More

We stayed for two days at Tortuguero and made a bad mistake visiting this "restaurant" for dinner. The dirty tablecloth and that for minutes nobody came to welcome us, should have warned us. Then came a somehow bored waitress to our table. Next warning: no menu existent, no prices visible. We asked her, what she could offer us. Some chicken... More

We came here at around 8 and we were the only people there. The service was not very friendly and there was no atmosphere but the food was the most authentic we have had and quite yummy! As with all the food here, fatty and oily but this time is tasted good!

We had a very tasteful evening meal here. 'La madre' cooked for us. We could hear her chopping the meat and sharpening her knives. We were the only customers at that moment, so there was no 'great' atmosphere, but maybe it comes later in the evening...
