This is one of the best Mexican restaurants we have ever eaten at. We travel an hour to get here and it is well worth the trip and traffic. The food is out of this world. As seasoned, and world-wide, travelers we recommend Tortuga's passionately!

My husband and I had the steak and shrimp fajitas. Absolutely delicious! Guacamole was great too. Dined outside on the patio. Genuine and comfortable Mexican atmosphere. Will definitely become a must on our future visits to Lambertville.
