We wandered upon the Tiny Turtle by accident. The ice cream shop next door came highly recommended, and we saw the Tiny Turtle. Later in our visit we went here to eat and it was wonderful. A quaint little place with wonderful food. A must...More

This place caught our eye and we stopped in here for lunch. We had some great mexican/carribean food, enjoying it all. Nice little drink selection and the service was great, all for a reasonable price.

I had never had sofrito but became a believer. I ordered the pork sofrito bowl twice, and the pork tacos once. My daughter got the quinoa bowl twice. The pork sofrito is so amazing. Get the sweet plantains (double order) as side orders. My daughter...More

Jun and I finally made it over to The Tiny Turtle! We had the sofrito salad with pork and the cheesesteak sandwich. Both were excellent and we will definitely be back to try more! Super cute little restaurant in the heart of Cocoa Beach.

Excellent food and very hard-working staff trying to make sure you get everything you want. The only thing is that the outside tables are next to a parking lot, not very cozy although quite convenient when going there by car.

Food was amazing. The only disappointment was the lack of attention when it came to service. Everyone in our group of 9 really enjoyed the food. I had the big ole meat sandwich with the bacon. Great flavor! The only downside, we were seated for...More

We were eyeing this place as we were getting the kids ice cream at Fat Donkey and decided to try it. So glad we did! We had the Mahi Mahi BLT and Island tacos and they were both delicious. So flavorful and good size portions.

This place sounded perfect , so we gave it a try. The restaurant looks like a cute, funky seafood shack and our server was friendly. Unfortunately our meal was a big disappointment. I got the shrimp quesadilla, which had a lot of cheese, but I...More

Sorry to hear of your disappointment! With that many issues I wish you would have asked for me, the owner/manager, before taking to giving a poor review! I can easily address concerns while in house there. I can't see what was actually served to you...More

For a party that size you definitely need to talk to them ahead of time as to when you hope to come and if it's a possibility to accommodate your party at that time..
