We love visiting the Tiny Turtle! Most recently we met some friends for dinner and drinks. They have some good craft beers and the food was great as always. I highly recommend the chips and trio dips. Yum to all! We have a 2 year...old and our friends have kids too. It is a perfect place to go as a family. There are games for the kids to play in the back seating area so they had a great time. We will be back again soon.More

We absolutely love Tiny Turtle, this family owned restaurant is one of a kind and a must if you visiting Cocoa Beach or you are a local! The welcoming atmosphere is awesome and the food is top notch and literally like nowhere else. Prices are...very reasonable and the food is amazing! The owners and staff are so pleasant and put care into every order. I highly recommend The Tiny Turtle! Our favorites are the Tripleta (one of a kind!) and the Sofrito Bowl!More

Have to agree with the previous review. The service was almost non-existent. After we'd waited an hour for our meal, and managed to find a server, we told her we wanted to cancel. This took another 10 minutes; the owner was apparently upstairs. When she...came down, she was rude, and then proceeded to lecture us on how hard it was to run a small business. We just wanted to leave. When we did, she said 'have a blessed day'.More

I have to say I am kinda surprised you found the time to seek us out on all the reviewing websites as you didn't give me any time to talk to you about resolving the issues you had with us. Let's be straight and share...More

We arrived at 11:30 am on a Thursday. We had to be at a work meeting at 1:00 pm. There were 2 of us. It took the waitress over 30 minutes to come to our table. When we were finally able to order we informed...her that we had a time deadline. Despite knowing we were pushed for time, our food still had not arrived by 12:40 when we had to leave. We asked for our lunches to be boxed and they couldn't do that either. We were there an hour and ten minutes and never got our food. I can understand if they were short staffed, but they never offered an explanation or an apology. Nor did they offer us an alternative that could be made right away. Absolutely rude, horrible service.More

Yikes! I'm sorry you did not have a pleasant experience. I'm not sure what happened but none of this sounds like what we are about so I will be addressing it with our staff. I wish you would have asked for the Owner/Manager, myself, so...More

We ordered takeout, so can't speak to the inside of the restaurant, but the food was very, very good. Get the grilled Maduros as a side!

It was a busy night with a downtown event and thought we would try it. Though busy they acknowledge us and rounded up some seating for us. Gidget our waitress was over in a jiffy, friendly, smiling, explained fully the unique menu. The food was...delicious and drinks refreshing. The prices were budget friendly. The portion can be large or small, with or without meat. So happy we stumbled onto this cute themed restaurant. The sauces are different and very good.More

Go in the afternoons/evenings for a cool relaxing event. The Caribbean Fusion menu is really one of a kind. And slow down and just people watch while waiting on your food. We love the SOFRITO SALAD and SOFRITO BOWL. Can't go wrong. The large is...very filling.More

Best lunch of our trip! The tacos, both Mahi and Island Chicken, were amazing. The creme caribe was fantastic, my daughter is going to make it at home - our waitress shared her recipe. And it was a wonderful outside shaded place to watch the...world go stroll by.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..
