“Fantastic food with fantastic service!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2013 via mobile

Just come back from a weeks stay at pdc, found this bar on the first night and ate there five days out of seven. The staff are very friendly and the service was fab.

It's a family run bar with a lot of home made dishes on the menu the Sunday dinner is a must,

The purple turtle shows all the live sports which cheered my husband up, will deffo eat here again next time were in lanzarote.

“Average”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2013 via mobile

We ate at The Purple Turtle after reading these reviews and found I to be nothing but average I'm afraid! Didn't help having a overpowering waiter, to much chitter not enough work, be prepared to wait it wasn't busy tonight yet waited ages for our food! Been in better establishments this week.

“Great food and friendly service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2013

Eaten at the Purple Turtle before and it has never failed to disappoint. We visited on a Wednesday night and they were packed out. When we arrived we were told there would be an hour wait for food. We chose to wait and were not disappointed. No matter what you order it always tastes superb and is freshly cooked. Staff are so friendly and the drinks and food prices are excellent. Unfortunately they are a bit too far from our apartment to visit for breakfast each day but will be back for dinner before we leave.

“The 'Perfect' Turtle!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2013

Me and my Dad visited in June. We spent every night at The Purple Turtle. Excellent staff, well priced drinks, perfect vibe and atmosphere. As well as a free pool table, brilliant music chosen by the staff members and a well cooked English menu!

You are missing out if you don't visit!
