We were not staying here but ended up walking over multiple times for meals (breakfast and lunch) and drinks. The staff is very friendly/helpful and the food is good. The Coconut French Toast is a must! Oh, and the views are pretty stellar.

Nice Restaurant with tasty food for a very good price. Every dinner comes with an appetizer and with soup or salad and a dessert. The Piña Coladas are the best!

I have driven by this unobtrusive place a thousand times without stopping in. On a whim we pulled in and what a delightful place! The food is Canadian fare, home cooked, and tastier than a comparable place like Jiffy's. I had the fried egg sandwich...More

Turned Turtles casual, romantic, beach front atmosphere is a great place to eat and drink with family, friends or that special someone. Don't miss the opportunity to dine on a secluded beach and experience a delicious breakfast, lunch or dinner with no reservations needed. Breakfasts start at only 2.99, Lunch at 4.50 And our dinners include starter, soup or salad, veggies and dessert for as low as 9. You can choose from our healthy options (numerous vegetarian options available) or throw caution to the wind and pamper yourself with our savory sauces and maybe a roasted Coconut cookies. Come by anytime and enjoy one of our delicious specialty drinks like frozen (not blended) margaritas, famous pina coladas, Jeff's Mudhole, Bloody Caesar or refresh yourself with a Shangri La (Tequila, gran Marnier, fresh lime juice and jalepeno). We offer some of the best food, service and value on the island in a remote beach setting. Avoid the tourist crowds and drop in.
