Description: Turned Turtles casual, romantic, beach front atmosphere is a great place to eat and drink with family, friends or that special someone. Don't miss the opportunity to dine on a secluded beach and experience a delicious breakfast, lunch or dinner with no reservations needed. Breakfasts start at only 2.99, Lunch at 4.50 And our dinners include starter, soup or salad, veggies and dessert for as low as 9. You can choose from our healthy options (numerous vegetarian options available) or throw caution to the wind and pamper yourself with our savory sauces and maybe a roasted Coconut cookies. Come by anytime and enjoy one of our delicious specialty drinks like frozen (not blended) margaritas, famous pina coladas, Jeff's Mudhole, Bloody Caesar or refresh yourself with a Shangri La (Tequila, gran Marnier, fresh lime juice and jalepeno). We offer some of the best food, service and value on the island in a remote beach setting. Avoid the tourist crowds and drop in.

I love that they plan the four-course meal just right! The margaritas and pina coladas were the best we've ever had! I'd give just about anything right now for some more cashew pesto on coconut bread.

When we opened in 2009 one of our goals was to have the best Pina Coladas and Margaritas possible. Thank you for letting us know we just might be hitting the mark! PS: We are super glad you enjoyed the food too :)

Had our orientation to LCBB not included Pina coladas I might never have tried them and what a loss that would have been. These icy cold babies are smooth with a nice hint of rum, topped with fresh roasted coconut. Best.Drink.Ever.
Their breakfasts were my favorite, oh, and their dinners and their lunches. Breakfast burritos and omelets were a fave, and really good coconut French toast. The shrimp scampi and garlic shrimp was excellent and the red snapper divine. The soups were um, different (cold cucumber and what they called gazpacho but wasn't red) but you're in the Caribbean so it doesn't matter. Panini siders on coconut bread at lunch were really exceptional.
Add to all this great food the spectacular views and little thatched private dining palapas surrounded by palms on the smoothest, softest cool sand and call it paradise.

They where booked up but I ate there 2 to 3 times a day. I know they love to spoil their guest by delivering hot coffee to their room each morning. I wish I could have stayed.

We ate here twice during our 4 days on Little Corn Island, for lunch and for dinner. At both meals, there were plentiful pina coladas topped with toasted coconut... They have a signature bloody mary that's also great (so my companions said). At lunch we had a variety of sandwiches on coconut bread. Dinner was lobster, pork ribs, shrimp; we got the four-course meal that included appetizer, salad, entree and dessert. Everything was nicely cooked and fresh. Service is friendly but not fast, but you are sitting on the beach right by the water, so who's in a hurry? I'd return here for a meal anytime.

... would have been this if it was opened about 60 years ago!
Bar Floridita in Cuba has a serious challenger now. Esquire magazine over 50 years ago called the Floridita one of the seven best bars in the world.
I would like to add an eighth bar and it's called Turned Turtle. Since it is an EXCELLENT restaurant also it should really deserve its own review page!
The menu adds nightly specials to some of the standard choices and every one is great, I tried all of them.
Highly recommended, you should visit this place for the restaurant alone.
Those Margaritas, Pina Coladas and Mudslides and the delicious Flore de Cana rum drinks............ keep them coming!

This place is listed in the best seller book "1000 PLACES TO SEE BEFORE YOU DIE"!
A delicious bucket list.
Imagine my 9 and 11 year old boys want to get up early so they can have the same breakfast "Sliders"!
Their web page mentions the fact that how remote this little island is and everything is more expensive because of it, but I found the food prices for the quality and service inexpensive.
Even if you don't stay in one of the beach bungalows, visit the restaurant often while you're in LC.
