“Good breakfasts”
Reviewed August 17, 2014 via mobile

We went here a couple of times for breakfast during our stay in Puerto del Carmen. It's a bit away from the centre, but well worth the walk up the steep hill. Although it has views of the sea from the terrace, it is on a relatively busy main road.
The range of food available for breakfast is good. Not only do they have traditional cooked breakfasts, but also kippers and cereal.
The quality of most of the ingredients is very good.
The service was excellent. The staff are warm, friendly and efficient.
The Purple Turtle is a good place to start your day with a good breakfast and a friendly smile.

“Lovely!”
Reviewed August 16, 2014 via mobile

A huge friendly welcome from Emma accompanied with great food, the breakfasts are great! The afternoon and evening menus from toasties to lasagne and theres a free pool table, along with cold beer at 2€ it's a great family run business that has been around since 2000, definitely worth a visit!
