Many of the reviews here are not favorable. But I enjoyed my meals here. And my food always came out in a timely manner - always within 20 minutes.

I really enjoyed eating a the Surfing Turtle Lodge Restaurant because the food was well presented and tasty. I love the Peruvian traditional dishes offered in the menu! Specially the freshness of the seafood.

The only thing they cook good is chicken of fish. Everything is soaking in oil. Breakfast is very poor.
