Relax and enjoy. On a good day, weather wise, beautifully situated with tables overlooking the canal, wathcing boats go past as you drink a cocktail or eat well prepared and reasonably priced food. If the weather is not so kind, relax in the lounge chairs undercover. Staff excellent. They even brought me a table cloth one day to cover my egs, as I was shivering in the unusual chilly weather.

This is a cool spot if you just want to hang by the water and watch the speedboats pass by. I had the salty pancake 'Del Mar' and it was yum. I made some shandy and passed the afternoon in sheer bliss. The staff were friendly and I would definitely go there again.

A little overpriced for food that is really just okay, but the location is great (sunset on the canal) and the fresh mojitos were very tasty. We only ate here once, but came back for nightcaps twice more...

This place is the best there is in Tortuguero and the price is great too. Great food and a nice clean relaxing environment with a beautiful view of the canal/bay ( sorry not sure what its called).
The staff and owner were very friendly.
I only wish I had found it on day one.

The vibe/ambiance of the restaurant is really nice at night. Service was ok, nothing special. Food was good, but nothing special. But: as the choices in tortuguero are limited, this is together with wild ginger the best restaurant in town.
