My partner and I totally loved the Purple Turtle. We dont like going to places where you feel you are looked down upon or have to dress up too much.
Everybody that works here make you feel welcome and really try to get to know you.
The food is great, something for everyone and the furniture and surroundingsxare very comfortable. You can sit inside or out with super views out to sea. My partner loved the local beer and said it was the best he had all holiday.

We had a lovely lunch here. The staff were very friendly, the views were good and the food was also very nice. Would definitely go back :)

My wife and I weren't very impressed with the hotel food where we were staying so after day two of our holiday we decided we needed a proper breakfast and we sure got one here. Excellent, proper sausages and bacon. Wasn't sure we would get a decent breakfast after wat we were being served at the hotel. Even the eggs were cooked to perfection. After having such a lovely breakfast the waitress mentioned that they also did homecooked evening meals and showed us a menu. Returned that night and my steak was cooked just how I liked it with fat chips. My wife is usually quite pickkie but her cod in batter was one of the best she has had for a long time. Large portions, decent prices and service was great. After finding this lovely spot it easily became our local for the rest of the holiday.

M family and I just spent 10 days in puerto del carmen & the purple turtle was a godsend.
We had two children with us and we were made to feel very welcome in each visit. In fact not only was the food excellent (didnt have one bad meal or a single complaint) but the family and staff were all superb we kept wanting to returning. The free wifi was an added bonus as kept the kids amused on their ipods.
Three different menus, braekfast, lunch and evening.
Excellent food, excellent value, massive variety for both the food and drink selection and excelkent staff. What more can you want. Cant wait to return.

They do a large San Miguel in a frozen glass for two euros. The staff are friendly and the place has a relaxed atmosphere. We had breakfast one day and burgers another. Both good value and tasty.
