Great service and food and convenient. I did not order any drinks so I can't comment on that. I did however enjoy very much Cloyd's coconut candy.

Miss Junie's is renowned for its rice and beans...and did not disappoint. All other dishes the group had were enjoyed. Can get busy so I suggest booking during peak tourist season

We ate both lunch and dinner at this restaurant, partly because we stayed at the same hotel. But it is recommended even if you don't stay there, the food is excellent and the prices are very competitive.

Miss Junie's is more expensive than the other restaurants we tried on the island, but we thought it was worth it for a nice meal our last night in town. The dining room is wood paneled and open to the air and ocean breezes. We...More

This is a very sweet, homey, immaculate place. The staff takes a personal interest. In the kitchen, there is home cooking. It is truly a home away from home.

You have to go to the end of the village to find this restaurant, through the park bordering their lodge. It’s somewhat gloomy and old style inside but the food, freshly cooked, is fabulously tasty. The sauces are stunning. Best Caribbean home cooking in Tortuguero.
