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

Had a wonderful meal of Tuna Crusted in Garam Masala Indian spices, spicy mango cucumber relish and beans and rice...the wife had the chicken Vera Cruz...not to mention the best appetizer with layers of fried eggplant, pesto, goat cheese, tomatoes, and pine nuts. Service was perfect and pleasant...meal was priced reasonably for the tremendous quality. We were more than pleased... More

Tucked into a house near the post office with tasty seafood, Cajun, and Caribbean dishes. Local artists displayed on the walls. Nice selection of not-the-usual beers to match the generally spicy food.
