The Budda Cafe not only has excellent food, but it is also the perfect place to spend a lazy afternoon in comfy chairs with a great view. This is one of those places that we recommend to every person traveling to Tortuguero.

Excellent service and excellent food! Also one of the few places with a patio on the water. We actually went for lunch and dinner here on the same day! That’s how good it was.

Wow!! We tried so many places in Tortuguero, and this was the best hands down. Excellent service, and some of the best pizza we’ve ever had. I would highly recommend and will most definitely go back.

The food was elegant and thoughtful, the service was excellent, the view was gorgeous. A bit on the pricey side for our budget, but probably worth the money.

This place offers good service and serves tasty food. The design of the restaurant and the music that is played there makes you feel like you are not in Costa Rica. It was a nice visit and a romantic evening.

Stopped just for a coffee, beautiful location right on the river front . Nice coffee , great setting. Menu was extensive but we didn’t eat so can’t comment . Perfect to watch the sun go down or get out of the rain!

We stopped by for some smoothies and milkshakes. The vibes were infectious, beautiful location on the water. Didn’t try any food but loved our visit.
