“Not as inexpensive as they anounce on their website”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 October 2011

The place has a cool design, the food is tasty, but a little overpriced for what you get. Might as well eat in one of the restaurants around for the same price.

“Waited 20 minutes then walked out”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 January 2011

Can't comment on the food. Eight of us sat for 20 minutes while the waitress walked by numerous times. The last time all eight of us were staring at her, she smiled and waved a hand as if to say, "Don't worry, I see you." Hopefully when she came out of the kitchen she correctly interpreted our gesture: an empty table.

The menu seemed pretty basic. Would recommend you walk up the road about 10 minutes to Ki-ke's Place, as we did, which had good service and the best mahi we had all week.

“Land ho....”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 February 2010

After five days of fishing and surfing from Jaco to Witches Rock. My six buddies and my self landed in Tamarindo and took a long beach walk down to Playa Grande. We ended up in the bar of Los Tortugas Hotel and Restaurant. We love this little hotel all snuggled into the trees. The staff were warm and welcoming and the margaritas made us relax into a delicioud meal of fish, black beans rice and the best apple pie you will ever eat. Nice place to be!
