Been there about 2 years ago when the place was new if i'm not mistaken (yeah rating my trips from the past was on my 2014 to-do list). We actually stayed in one of the two cabanas next to the restaurant and we enjoyed it very much. The owner (taylor i guess) was very nice and cooked us some great meals. He is also a certifide guide and he guided us to see the turtles wich was a very pleasant activity. He told us a lot about how it was growing up in Tortuguero.
Definitely recommend this place

Ok, if Buddha Café has the BEST CHEESECAKE OF THE WORLD you can also try the best brownie ever.
Carameled chocolate with toasted coconut and vanilla ice cream... just by remembering it makes me crave it. If you ever go to this wonderful place and order one remember to close your eyes and enjoy that bite.
It is a magnificent place, a beautiful garden-restaurant where the owner takes your order and cookks for you. He is a wonderful and warm person that also has a lot of information about town history and neviroment, also an excelent guide.
Taylors place is in the middle of towns neighborhood.
If you want to have a cocktail i totally recomend you the Taylor green and the Martuca (if you are lucky and Tortuguero is in Guanabana season ask for a Guanabana version of Martuca), you won't even tell how happy you are 'till you stand on your feet.
I'd like to thank Taylors place for all the happy moments i had over there in Tortuguero, it is for sure a magic place that you must go WITH NO RUSH PLEASE!!!! ENJOY THE JUNGLE!!

We highly recommend this place, you should try it! The food was really great and Ray, the owner of the restaurant, really cared about us. The
prices are moderate and the atmosphere is amazing, lots of animals just around you and a very romantic setting. Try the fish or chicken and the cocktails are great too. The best is to take what he recommends but I would do this everywhere in Tortuguero.The size of the meals are not that big but as it is not that expensive you even could order twice. We stayed at a room next to the restaurant which was simple but clean and cosy. The people who were staying there are very easy-going and we got to

This was a very pretty, outdoors garden with great service. Very romantic. We were there in December and the meals seemed to reflect the fact that it was low season. It was OK - but it seemed like we had all ordered the same thing (which we hadn't...)

I got there late nigt when everything was closed and the owner received us with a big smile. He is also the chef, and his food is amazing, he is really creative with the ingredients, local ones, and a great person. The place is really beautiful, the tables are set up in little cabins, the music was nice too. Definitely a great place to go for dinner and make your experience unforgettable.
