Highly rated by our friends in Longmont, we took them there for a thank you meal. Very tempting menu, but specials were taken. Blackened tuna, red prawn curry and crab tortillas. All very tasty, and not too big portions. Hurray! Allowed room to try key lime pie (shared), which was excellent. Very friendly staff. Quite busy for a midweek, but... More

The food at this place is excellent. We had the Shrimp Callaloo for our entree. The shrimp was very fresh and the sauce was amazing It came with butternut squash, spinach, plantains and a side of rice and black beans. We also had the Cheese and potato empanadas which came with an avocado tomatillo sauce. Delicious. Finally, we had chocolate... More

The weather was great following a summer shower on their patio. It was fusion between Caribbean and New Orleans food. I had the jambalaya which was thick with crawdads, shrimp, chicken and sausage. I don't eat wheat these days and this is a gluten-free option. The prices are around $20. Not a big salad place.

The patio situation at Tortuga's is amazing. It was the perfect place for a pleasant dinner and a tasty mojito after a long day of driving. My husband and I each enjoyed Cajun dishes that tasted pretty darn authentic. It was a little pricey but I can't imagine bringing seafood to a landlocked state like Colorado is cheap--a good Friday... More

Since moving to CO from the East Coast nearly 2 years ago, my wife and I longed for a restaurant with more than just Salmon. We were told about Tortuga's and decided to give it a try. It was late summer (2015) and we sat on the outdoor patio. From the start we were met with very hospitable service. We... More

We ventured off the tried and true restaurant chain path and were not disappointed. This is an old house turned restaurant with a homey interior and charming patio seating. Jamaican Jerk Chicken, Jambalaya, and the Grouper Special were the main dishes ordered. We shared and tasted each others food. It was all seriously delicious though I would rate the Grouper... More

Food quality is exceptional, and the preparation (Cuban / Key West style) is outstanding. Great Cajun as well. We have been going here for almost 20 years and never had a bad meal. Next to Boston, my favorite for fresh fish.

A very small lovely home made into a small restaurant with a lovely patio. The menu is small and specialized, but their food is excellent. Their fish is the best in Longmont. If someone asks me for the best restaurant in town for a really nice fish dinner, I always recommend Tortugas. While it is more expensive than the average... More

I've been going to this restaurant since it opened and it never fails to impress. The food is always outstanding. The service is great. The atmosphere is charming and intimate. The outside patio is wonderful in warm weather. Great place for a fun evening.
