“Average Food”
Reviewed 14 March 2013

The food at Las Tortugas was your average fair for Costa Rica. I stayed at the hotel four nights and ate several meals in the restaurant. The staff is local, caring and bilingual, willing and patient to practice Spanish with the diners. The two-for-one Mango margaritas at happy hour are yummy.

“Excellent simple food. Great value”
Reviewed 7 February 2013

My husband and I stayed at the hotel and ate here often. The food is simple, fresh, and quite reasonable. The open air environment is relaxing. Banana pancakes, mahimahi burgers with fries, seared mahi on a salad, very cold beers, I couldn't have asked for better.

“Good food but no view”
Reviewed 28 December 2012

Good local food in friendly environment, but trees block the beach so don't expect a sunset view. Fish was fresh and very good.

“Delicious fish dinner by the Pacific.”
Reviewed 19 November 2012

With high ceilings, dark woods, beautiful tables, and large windows open to the beach, our meals we had at this rustic/charming restaurant were wonderful. We ate our breakfasts outside, on the wraparound deck, and enjoyed an evening dinner with our group of 7, around a large, beautiful dark wood table, in the main dining room.

“Great food, great prices”
Reviewed 3 November 2012

We ate breakfast, lunch and dinner here several days and were quite pleased with the food quality and prices. One of us is a vegetarian and there was plenty for us to eat.
