We were really thrilled with our first meal at Turtle Bay, although they were so busy the service was definitely lacking. In fact we wondered if we would get any! Every dish was fantastic though - in particular the sesame crusted tuna was out of this world. We returned a second time, it was not as busy and the service... More

We had the sesame encrusted tuna and my partner had some kind of white fish. Both were fresh and delicious. The drinks were great as well. Prices are very resonable considering the quality of the food.

This is one of my favourite restaurants in Puerto. Alejandro is the chef and he has a wonderful way with making delicious sauces. His Jalepeno burger is wonderful! Everything that I have tried on the menu is great!

We went there 2 nights in a row. I had the the tuna and it was delicious, the only observation is that there was no consistency as the 2 time I've ordered it didn't come with the spring roll it came with the first night. My partner had fillet the first night and the burger the second night and he... More

An out of this world pina colada made in a blender by our server in the open kitchen. The place itself is clean, bright, non-smoking, and spacious (but like everywhere, lacks AC). The mahi was fresh and tasty, and the service was great. It's an excellent juxtaposition between casual atmosphere and an upscale menu. I would not hesitate to go... More

Shared tacos and they were good, but did not expect them to be fried. The Seared Tuna was excellent...so fresh...prepared perfectly. Definitely recommend.

We went to Puerto for a long holiday and have eaten at this restaurant 3 times. It outshines everything else on the street and in the other surrounding beach areas. My better half and I live in London and have travelled quite a bit, enjoying food in international cities and quieter locales. This food is up there with what NYC... More
