We ate at Turtle day for dinner. Margaritas were good. We didn't love the flat bread. The grilled fish tacos are outstanding. The chicken fajitas were very good too. My husband liked my fish tacos so much, he made me come back the next night...so he could get fish tacos. I had them again. We also tried the calamari and the the tuna tostadas which were both also good. We had Turtle Bay for breakfast the day we left. Everything was delicious again--chilaquilles and huevos rancheros and a coconut and almond scone that was so good. Have their ice cream. You can just go to the ice cream counter to order. So good!More

We ate at Turtle Bay Cafe multiple times in our trip to Akumal. Excellent food, good service, and a great location. This is a well run business and we enjoyed our meals there.

We stumbled upon this place our first morning and were instantly charmed. The ambiance is great, the baked goods looked incredible, and the service was immediately friendly. We ordered juice, coffee and two of their fresh made pastries, and it was all amazing. The coconut...almond coffee cake was our favorite! We loved it so much we came here the next two days of our stay in Akumal. Everything we ordered was tasty and high quality, and everyone there was so kind. I cannot recommend this place enough!More

We LOVE this place. Have been going for years. Terrific breakfasts and pastries, lunch and dinner. The atmosphere is soooo special - very authentic, outdoors, covered roof. Have their own local, specialty ice cream too, which is amazing.

Been coming for 6 years and Turtle Bay is a frequent stop for us (we got food here most mornings for breakfast and ate dinner at least 2x over the week). Staff is amazing (shout out to Ruby who took extra good care of us...this week and made my niece's birthday extra special). Must mention the yummy breakfast baked goods and flatbreads--which are great if you need a break from chips and pico. No stay in Akumal is complete without a trip to Turtle Bay Cafe!More

We have been here several times over the years, always a great visit. This time was for a late breakfast, and a party of 8. We were welcomed and served very quickly, everything was hot and delicious. Highly recommend.

Walking from ABBW, we stumbled upon this fantastic place! Chips and guacamole and drunken fish tacos were amazing and needed with a great beer and mojito! Their space is so quaint and friendly! The lazy cat on one of the chairs was also so cute!...If you’re around Akumal, go visit this restaurant! It’s an oasis among the locations:)More

All of our breakfast dishes were great. Bacon was better than I anticipated, I fee like you can judge a breakfast spot by the quality of their bacon. I was hoping for some awesome homemade pastries but was disappointed by the selection, all looked like...they were over cooked.More

There were so many yummy things on the menu it was hard to pick one. The smoothies were so good and served with a smile in beautiful glasses. I had the flatbread and it was indeed better than pizza so I ate it all. Which...made me too full to have dessert, unfortunately. I would love to come back and explore this menu further in this relaxed athmosphere.More

We visit an all-inclusive nearby at least once or twice a year, and because our cost there includes our food, we hadn't really taken the opportunity to try local restaurants before this visit. I'd read good things, so we stopped a couple of different times...when we were in town - once for ice cream and smoothies, once for breakfast, and once for an early dinner (the menu said it was served "after 5PM - but ask if you want it earlier" - and we did, and they were able to accommodate us. We enjoyed everything we tried! The service wasn't very speedy, nor particularly friendly, but we enjoyed having options and will definitely be back.More
