These are super nice comments above! But please don't get the wrong impression. We are still on a remote tropical island, dealing with a long supply line and a myriad of issues that can have an impact on our guests experience both good and bad. We do our best though to honor these folks confidence in us (see comments above) and work diligently with our all Nicaraguan staff (no "chefs" here) to provide the freshest and highest quality food and service delivered consistantly at a fair price, every meal, every day. We hope you will come try us out.
Our Turned Turtle Bar and Restaurant offers some of the most mouth watering fare on the island. More good news to, NO RESERVATIONS REQUIRED! We offer a casual dining experience (don't expect "fine dining").
Our goal is to have North American quality food, timeliness, cleanliness and service that puts The Turned Turtle in a class by itself on Little Island. Our friendly all Nicaraguan staff go out of their way to show you island hospitality, serve up tasty food and all in half the time of the typical island restaurant. All dinners include starter, soup or salad, main course with veggies (unusual on the island to get vegetables believe it or not) and our tasty deserts, all included in one low price (ask for a la mode to get a scoop of our gourmet homemade ice cream with your cake).
In our effort to provide a fresh and dynamic menu, almost every day we make a different dessert served for the evening as well as a different salad or soup and a fresh, new starter. While it may seem limiting, we have actually found that this process typically keeps our guests satisfied because whatever is served that day is fresh and different than what was available the day before. It also helps our hard working staff provide consistently excellent service and wonderful (hopefully) dining experiences.
Our quality of service, food and unique beach atmosphere we hope will make you want to dine with us often. More good news too, our prices are low! Breakfast starts as low as $2.99, lunches start at $4.5 and our excellent four plate dinners start as low as $9. Don't forget to enjoy our fresh brewed bottomless cup of coffee in the mornings for only $1.75 (served from 6:45am to 10:00am).
