Lovely place for lunch, we had a table of six and they were great waiting for all to arrive, our meals all came out together and all as ordered. The food was beautiful with warm and welcoming service.

I have dined at the Blue Turtle on many of occasions and I'm always satisfied with my meals. I particularly love the Healthy Breakfast, Big Breakfast and the Mushrooms with feta and spinach. Staff are great, prices are good and service good.

Blue Turtle is an unpretentious and welcome change to some over-the-top brunch venues. It has simple decor and an uncomplicated menu but delicious food and good service. A bonus was the salt and pepper grinders on the table that can be purchased for $10.

Stopped for coffee and cake. Had some nice options on the menu - sort of wish it had been mealtime! Lovely coffee and caters to gluten and lactose intolerances. Friendly staff too.
