a big thanks to darren, theresa, steve and emma for making us feel welcome, this is a great wee bar we stopped automatically when we were on our way home or way out,,, hope alan, frank and dave behaved themselves, and thanks for helping with the practical joke with the tea (instead of the brandy). very friendly and easy going nature, fountain of info if you need it, pool table, telly's, books, games,internet,etc. we didn't eat here but heard only glowing reports.
this is a tidy bar, and looks like it will be expanding,,,, go the purple turtle from lynn and ian from edinburgh

English family run bar a few yards from our apartments which was handy, but worth a visit even if further away.

Serve good quality food and competitve prices ...e.g roasts, hunters chicken, lasagne ...big portions.

All staff very friendly and chatty ...one waiter even checked out the football scores for us on his mobile our first day in there!

Lots of screens showing football so a good combination of food and sport if that's your thing. Also has free wi-fi.

Felt very welcome and comfortable in the Purple Turtle.


Thank Ian S

Went in to start my brekquest for Puerto del Carmen. Family run business with absolutely fantastic sea views over the harbor. Very efficient service and reasonable price for the standard breakfast, one sausage,egg, bacon,beans and slice of toast, with a mug of tea was only €4.95. I have been here before and the food is genuinely home cooked, frequented by tourists and locals and well worth the trek up the hill for the amazing views
