So when you go to a place for breakfast & enjoy it so much that you stay for lunch & return the same evening for dinner, it's a good sign, right?! This place consistently impressed us with awesome food. Their lobster or coconut shrimp tacos were incredible & you can sustitute the standard corn tortilla chips for homemade onion rings... More

The turned turtle prepared fresh healthy food that filled you up, the mango coleslaw for appetizers was heavenly and personally I can speak for the filet mignon, lobster tail (I recommend the grande portion), lobster tacos, skillet breakfast, coconut French toast and waffles along with the ribs and burger sliders...all were amazing.... all fresh, and served with a smile. Prices... More

We went there 6 times in 7 meals. Food is amazing For dinner they have a set menu, incredible value for money They should however work on the service. The waitresses do what they can but this is clearly not natural for them (yet) to serve Westerners. Example : they probably have been asked to ask the clients if everything... More

Went for dinner. Starter was cold slaw. For mains I had shrimp which was nice, but my partners fish was a mean portion, and he was not happy. They ran out of dessert, so could only offer us a cookies. When they arrived, they gave us half a cookie each. How mean can you get? Won't be eating there again!!!

In the evening you get a free starter, appetiser and desert with your main. Generally a salad and a taster. They are quite spicy due to the sauces they add. Served quite quickly compared to other places on the island. Very nice.

My boyfriend and I came here as many times as possible during our stay - the breakfasts lunches and dinners are all absolutely fantastic, the staff are amazing. The place itself is lovely, the coffee is unlimited! We also briefly met the manager and saw his interactions with staff which were kind and monitoring unlike other places we've experienced. Go...

This was our 2nd time on little corn and Turned Turtle is one of the best spots on the island. This time we also stayed at Beach Bungalow for 2 nights and one day had all 3 meals there:). If you like coconut-the coconut chocolate cookies and coconut french toast are fantastic! If only doing one meal I recommend dinner,... More

Absolutely delicious food! Both breakfast, lunches and the four course dinner. Must be the best food on the Island, for sure. Friendly staff. Unlike many other places on Big Corn, which we also visited, the service is fast. Good drinks, wine. Maybe a little bit pricey, but it's worth it. Maybe the best restaurant we ate at during our four... More
