Wow. This place far exceeded expectations. We had the plantains and beans, cevechie, and seafood platter. The cevechie was so good we ordered another. Cute place ran by a local family.

This was one of our favorite lunches during our 12 days in Costa Rica. Great fresh seafood for a good price. Relaxing ambiance right off a waterway. Highly recommended.

We stayed at Sunset Lodge and had dinner at Casa El Tortugo a couple of times. The food was excellent; especially the whole fish - best I've ever had. Beers were nice and cold and everyone was very friendly and helpful.

Inexpensive drinks and great casados. These were very tasty and filling - a good meal. Plantain, rice, beans, avocado tomato & cucumber salad, cheese, meat etc. Really friendly service and lovely setting - nice view through trees to beach.

They all accept credit cards. I know I also used my credit card for the snorkeling trip and they added 2% (I think) but I do not believe the restaurants do.

a few months ago I recall a whole snapper with salad and papas was around $15...... I can't remember exactly but it was great value.
