Me and my mates go to Lanza every year and always pay the Purple Turtle a visit. Not only great food but great staff. Very reasonably priced Good location with nice terrace overlooking the harbour. Normally we will have at least 3 breakfasts and 3 dinners here while we are in Lanza for a week. Highly recommended so make sure you also pay them a visit especially if you are Staying nearby like we do either at the Flora or Balcon del Mar. Ps ignore the moany stupid review down the page they obviously couldnt get into the Ritz on that day!! Keep up the good work and see you soon guys and gurlz.

Had breakfast here once during our stay in August. You can choose to sit inside or outside. We went inside as it was cooler. Breakfast menu has a lot to choose from. I went for the large breakfast and wasn't disappointed and prices are reasonable. I would imagine you could ask for anything and the staff would do their best to get it for you. I will be back on my next visit.

I'm not sure what all the fuss about this place is really as we found it to be very average...... the food was ok but only the same as a thousand other places in PDC, although when we ordered burgers and chips at 11.30am the waitress said we would have to wait as they don't do lunches till 12.30 ! Which is not great customer service is it really ? I thought place just looked a bit tired and could do with a lick of paint. Sorry but won't go back there.

After so many wonderful recent reviews, it is such a shame to read your review. Unfortunately, you fail to mention when you visited us as during the first fortnight of December we were closed to a refurbishment including fresh paint, new plants all along our terrace & the toilets have been completly retiled!
We are an extremely busy Establishment which is why we have three seperate menus for different times of the day. It clearly states inside & out what time we serve which menus. During both breakfast & lunchtime shifts we have only one chef in the kitchen & considering how busy we get we feel we may not at times, be able to serve such great quality food without keeping the customer waiting so long for the food to be served. This, we consider, is actually good customer service. This said, however, brings me on to let future valued customers know that when asked for something other than what is on the menu at that particular time we always try to accommodate. If we are not overly busy at the time, we always endeavour to meet our customers requirements!
I have personally managed to serve lunchtime food before 12.30pm at least three times in the past couple of days after it being requested.
It is a shame to hear that you will not be visiting again as after twelve successful years in Business we do pride ourselves on so many repeat customers.

We ate at the purple turtle at least twice a day for the duration of our holiday, the food truly is that good. Great variety, taste and value for money. Cannot fault this place at all, would recommend the steak!
