We have not eaten here, but just stopped for morning coffees. It is a gorgeous spot by the harbour, perfect for watching the world go by, especially the people dawdling along.....and why not in such a charming place ! Well worth a stop here.

We had dinner at La Tortuga roughly 2 weeks ago. The food was good value for money but we were very taken aback by the highly unprofessional behaviour of one of the waiters. We arrived in the restaurant just a few minutes after 9 pm and almost immediately we were warned we should order quickly as the kitchen closed at... More

Family of 11 and all happy I had entrecôte with onions and it was great. Schnitzel was good and bolognese was excellent

Possibly the rudest attempt at service I have encountered anywhere on my travels . The waiter slammed menus down on our table and then ignored us completely whilst trying to entice others in. Left after one beer without bothering to order the lunch we intended. Others around us similarly dismayed. Plenty of competition- use it.

Visited a couple of times for Coffee / Beer; great place to sit and watch the world go by. Did not eat, but the food looked acceptable. Would visit again when next in Puerto de Mogan.

On the positive side, good value for money and nice location. Had a grilled fish and seafood plate to share, a very large serving. On the negative side: unhelpful service (asked for olives while we waited for the food, but this was too much for the kitchen to manage), several wines were sold out. While the plate was very large,... More

Food is delicious but slow service, an hour wait for food - longest wait of the holiday. The German lady owner doesn't go out of her way to make you feel welcome but food great.

We had a nice meal at la tortuga - the service was extremely slow which is such a shame as the food is good. There are so many lovely restaurants in mogan that we probably won't be back on this holiday
