You have to go to the end of the village to find this restaurant, through the park bordering their lodge. It’s somewhat gloomy and old style inside but the food, freshly cooked, is fabulously tasty. The sauces are stunning. Best Caribbean home cooking in Tortuguero.

Thank you Cloied for the two fantastic and unforgetable tours. Cloied is born in tortuguero and nows everything! He is a wonderful guide. The lodge is nice and very well located with good food.

Went for dinner right on opening, due to having an early tour, waited almost an hour for our meal and it was only ok. The jerk chicken was too hot to taste any of the flavours and the fans didn't move the air around.

We ate lunch at Miss Junie's based on the glowing recommendation of Lonely Planet. The food was OK, good flavour but fish and chicken were both chewy, with some good rice/beans/plantain and a half-assed salad. There was one other party of four in the restaurant,...More
