“Definately worth a visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2012

We have just returned from 10 days in Lanzarote and went here everyday for breakfast and sometimes evening meals too. Breakfast was second to none and service was first class.
Very friendly staff very clean with amazing views. Shows all sport and tv programmes.
Great value for money so make sure you pay The Purple Turtle a visit!! Will definately be paying a return visit in March.

“Nice place, nice food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2012

Fast Service, good prices, good food. We only called in for a snack on the way home from a trip/day out - the Purple Turtle always seemed busy and from what I could see of the food being served looked good. Give it a try !

“Pretty basic”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2012

The food was not too good and the puddings in the on view fridge look like they had been sitting there for a few days. Great if you want to watch the football or the X Factor

weef, Owner at The Purple Turtle, responded to this review, October 29, 2012
Again, another curt review lacking in detail. If only you had brought to our attention at the time that there was anything at all wrong with your food, we would have been more than happy to have rectified the situation. I also want to assure you, that we are way to busy with a very fast turn over for our Desserts to have been sat in the Fridge for a couple of days.
