Description: La Tortuga Cucufata has distinguished itself since 1993 for its gourmet tacos, cheese chicharrón, bone marrow tacos, fresh juices and for their quality service that has surpassed that of other restaurants in the area. We continue to be the preferred restaurants with the locals as well as visitors. We provide a children’s play area as well as a bar area where you can get two for one national drinks from 6:00pm – 8:00pm every day. We are located in Plaza Los Portales, a shopping center in Cuernavaca with plenty of parking.

Why would anyone want to go to a restaurant to eat tacos? There are hundreds of great taquerias in Cuernavaca where a taco will taste much better and cost 5 times less than here. Way overpriced and the food is not that great.

I have been to the Tortuga cucufata many times, as it's the place where they serve "safe" tacos. That is, if you have guests or travellers who want to try tacos, but you are afraid to take them to a street taco stall for fear of getting ill, then you should take them here.

The disadvantage is the price - very high for tacos, but consider it an investment in hygiene!

The menu is standard for a taqueria, the chicken consomme is highly recommended, and it's easy to over-order here, the alambres, for instance, are for two people minimum (but pretty good).
