“Up and down depending on when you go”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 September 2012

On the whole each time I have gone the food has been good. Just be careful going on a Friday or Saturday night as it gets crowded, menu items become less available and service is slow. But they do a good version of mexican food. Recommended.

“Good variety”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 August 2012

The Turtle bar and restaurant is easy to overlook at it's located next to a petrol station (along the road to Mega City) but it's definitely worth a visit.

They serve Mexican food, which is unusual for Kisumu. Most of the food is very nice, although the pizzas could be better. The burgers are very tasty and the Mexican food is very nice, albeit not completely authentic. But they use real cheese (not the processed cheddar you find most places here) and it's a nice change from the usual.

I think they have live music on weekend nights, but haven't been there on the weekend so can't comment on that. The only downside was the waiter, (it wouldn't be Kenya without at least one downside :P ) he refuses to write down orders, and as a result forgets things, which then have to be reordered.

But all in all, I enjoyed the food and have been back a few times, so you should definitely check it out.
