Very nice restaurant with a view on the Gulf. The food was excellent. The wait staff was very attentive and helpful in helping us make our dinner selections. Family friendly atmosphere.

We were craving a bit of tex-mex and we found it here. Endless chips and salsa to start - very addictive! Service was a bit slow considering the restaurant was only about 1/3 full and it was mid afternoon, but the atmosphere was great and the food was even better. Worth a stop while waiting for your cruise.

Good (overpriced) margaritas but..... the food is not good here. We had the combo appetizer platter and nothing had much flavor. The Taquitos were so bad we complained so they brought extra nachos that tasted like sawdust. The stuffed peppers look impressive at least.

Great place to eat. Food was really good, service was great and meals were around $11 each. Serving size was good, more then enough. Would go there again.

Tortuga used to be my favorite place to eat when we came to Galveston. It was always my first choice for lunch or dinner but out last visit was very disappointing. I had the fish tacos (which are usually my favorite there) and my husband had a taco salad. My fish tacos were terrible. You could smell them from across... More

Stopped in to satisfy my Mexican food craving and was well pleased. Our visit was midday and midweek. The place was not crowded and the service was great. Our food arrived promptly and tasted wonderful. I had the enchiladas and they were excellent. The food was so great, I didn't save room for sopapillas! Will have to try them next... More

After high reviews we decided to try this place. I think they bought the guac at the gas station. Zero flavor. Salsa was delish. Chili relenno was below average taste. Will not be back.
