There is a miracle of life which occurs in the turquoise blue waters that surround a tropical paradise. For there is a migration of the giant sea turtles to the white sandy beaches that surround southern Mexico. Where these gentle giants come from, no one really knows. But they come by the thousands every year to the same beach which began their lives. They lay their eggs, and, after their long journey and this exhausting process, crawl slowly back into the sea.

The natives to these beaches celebrate the event with a fiesta. They prepare wonderful food in abundance and create an atmosphere of revelry and uninhibited fun.

The name, Tortuga Coastal Mexican Cantina, is derived from this simple, noble creature whose life creates so much happiness. The wonderful and unique dishes on the menu capture the essence of the same tropical flavors. Yet the real inspiration comes from people who need very little in the way of an excuse to celebrate life.

Tortuga Mexican Kitchen is a multiple unit restaurant company. They operate Mexican casual dining restaurants in Houston and Galveston, Texas. Their purpose is simply to provide great tasting, high quality Mexican food and beverage in a fun and friendly atmosphere, for people who crave a quality dining experience.

Relax at Tortuga's with family and friends while enjoying the fun and flavors of Mexico. The Tortuga staff always greets everyone with a warm smile and a bountiful basket of warm corn tortilla chips, freshly prepared. Nothing goes better with their chips than their famous salsa! It too is made fresh daily with only the freshest tomatoes, onions and spices available. Freshness is also the secret of the numerous dishes made with unforgettable flavors.

Tortuga has been one of Houston's favorite restaurants for many years. Serving lunch and dinner everyday, the menu features a variety of appetizers and entrees. The full service bar, excellent wine list, delicious homemade desserts and friendly, attentive service provides a most memorable dining experience.

Tortuga invites everyone to celebrate with them whenever .
