Another of our favorites when visiting the island. Absolutely stunning view of the harbor! Food is good, reasonably priced.

“Pass on this one”
Reviewed April 21, 2014

Sweet drinks at high prices and noisy to boot. There are plenty of nice places on island, this one is a tourist trap.

“Good food, great location”
Reviewed April 20, 2014

We had a late lunch at Fat Turtle and really enjoyed the food and the view (it's right on the harbor). If you can get a table at the edge of the water, you can watch the tropical fish swim by! I had the chicken Ceasar wrap, and my husband had the mahi sandwich, both of which were good. The calamari appetizer was excellent. I actually thought the service was very good--probably because we went at 3:00 in the afternoon. I would recommend this place if you're in the downtown area and looking for a decent meal.

“Fat Turtle”

Hostess was busy talking and did not notice us standing there. The area and view was nice but the food was ok. Our server was very friendly and attentive.
