Great location, though the sun loungers are blocked from having a good shoreline view by the sand! Fab cocktails and pizza.

Really great place and although ridiculously expensive they let us use their sun beds, showers, toilets, all for free. We didn't feel in any way pressured to buy anything in return. We did end up buying a few beers and cocktails and food, it was...More

Pizza was not good, very soft bottom and salami no good. Tuna was not fresh with many bits and pieces in it. Prawn dishes were oke. After feedback no attempt to compensate in any way. Many better options around on the beach.

There are many places to eat along the beach mainly offering sea food. I would advise choosing any of them in preference to Tartaruga.

We popped in on the off chance for dinner. We were not disappointed. We went back a further three or four times. The food was excellent and they adapted things for me and my vegetarian daughter. The garlic toast is yum and Jumbo prawns -...More

Had lunch here when sunbathing and was really dissapointed. The prawn mayo sandwich was 90% onion, and my wife's tuna nicoise salad was made with cheap nasty tuna. We both ate 10% of our meals and told the waiter who smiled and didnt do much...More
