“Lovely and Fresh Food served with a smile”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 March 2012

If you want a great restaurant just a little off the beaten path, enjoy Turtle Bay. You can get the freshest tasting fish and great greens and throw it into a tortilla with awesome black beans. Try it!

“If you want chips and salsa, you'll be charge for it!!!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 July 2011

The server will ask you If you want chips and salsa, all mexicans restaurants give you this automatically, since this is a taqueria, you'll think it's a complementary touch from the restaurant, but NO, it's going to be in your bill, I was in shock and the 2 other tables next to me as well, and we just ate 1/2 of the small basket, if server could inform us in advance it won't be a great deal, but it's one of those hidden charges like the ones you always get in your first cellphone bill..... I won't return just because of this ....

“Be prepared to wait.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 October 2009

Turtle Bay Taqueria has good reviews around the web but we were not impressed with the food, value or speed. We ordered take-out and had to wait quite a long time for our meals to be prepared. The food was fine but nothing spectacular. The burritos were pricey and just average sized for the $$. There was no children's menu available (although alter we discovered that they do have children's options - they just were not available on the menu). We did appreciate that they do not use Styrofoam containers for their take out - the containers looked to be recycled cardboard. We will probably skip Turtle Bay Taqueria on our next visit to the Monterey Bay area.
