I recently had a business dinner here and it was very enjoyable. It is marketed as a Cajun type restaurant so being from New Orleans I was skeptical. However, the gumbo was excellent. The entree was very good (had tuna Vodoo style ) and lots of it. Now it was not spicy for me but still good. The beer selection... More

This is one of our favorite dining spots in our home town. Fish is the specialty, but there are a few other options if you are dining with a non-fisheater. Ambiance is comfortable -- in a former home. We especially like it in the summer when they have a wonderful dining patio under trees. Indoors, see if you can get... More

We were not expecting to find Caribbean food in Longmont Colorado, but then there's Tortuga's, on a side street in a charming house.The grouper was tasty and beautifully prepared. Tortuga's is a fish house but even a fish phobic person will find plenty to eat. Service was friendly and attentive. We were surprised and delighted with our experience there.

Last time I was here was not long after they opened 20 years ago. A restaurant has to be good to still be open this long. It's located in a residential area across from the post office. Not where you would think a restaurant would be located. They do have a nice patio with shade. We went on a Wednesday... More

I dined solo here about a week ago. They have a great patio that was shaded and tastefully decorated. The staff was completely pleasant without being obtrusive or over-accommodating. They are a bit on the pricey end, but the food execution is worth the price. Totally reasonable portions (although I was very hungry and ate all of my meal). The... More

One of the best restaurants in Boulder county. I don't know how Pete does it, but he cooks fish better than anyone, anywhere. It is always tender, flavorful and moist. His dishes have a caribbean flair, but are always creative and original. Expect a hint of spice.

We had not been to tortugas in many years and were invited by some friends. The meal was very good and the service was great. We had a good time and everyone thought their meal was well prepared. We will be back.

We just ate there last Friday and the food was fabulous as always. I had the Opah which was very well prepared. My husband had the Jambalaya which is always his favorite. Best restaurant in Longmont, CO!

The new movie release, "Chef" inspired us to return to Tortuga's for dinner this week. In fact, we went immediately after seeing this movie. It's the only restaurant in this area that would fit the bill for those delicious Caribbean flavors, and once again it delivered. The atmosphere, in a small house, is charming, the service was friendly and attentive,... More

Had such a great meal here a couple of weeks back! The food took a little while to come out as they had been super busy - this was fine as we were in no rush but they offered us some starters on the house anyway which was really nice. I then had the jambalaya which was just so tasty... More
