We had a party of 8. Drinks were awesome & Juan was very attentive. He made a different creature, character or item with each & everyone's linen napkin. All 8 napkins were different. Everybody tried a different entrée & everybody was very pleased. We raved afterwards about the atmosphere, white sand floor & beautiful décor & back ground music. Very... More

Nice open air restaurant. Higher in cost than local places, but cheaper than hotel/beach prices. Very flavorful!

The amazing service started before we even entered the restaurant, we were trying to figure out where to park when Osmar came right out and helped us. He made engaging conversation, seated us at a great table, got our 2 yr old up in a high chair, and the amazing meal began. The drinks were served in mason jars and... More

I usually ignore those street-corner folks trying to lure you into their restaurant, but this time we gave Tony a shot and tried out his place. SO glad we did. It is the most wonderful courtyard under the stars. Their food was all delicious, as well as the drinks! Tony was a fantastic server, had we been staying in SP... More

We've eaten here before on previous trips and have never been disappointed. Tony was our waiter and was so helpful and nice. We only had the stuffed jalapenos that night but they were outstanding. We will be back!

We went for a lunch time snack and liked the Mayan tostadas, even though I was a bit Leary about mayo on a tostada. It's a block from the beach the people were nice and the bathrooms clean. Sandy floor with a fountain under a palapa roof.

The restaurant was empty and we went in. Best lobster thermidor I've had. It was perfect and creamy probably the best meal I've had this whole trip. Husband had beef quesadilla it was good. Would recommend this place to everyone and I will definitely be back the next time I'm in town.

The service was truly awesome. And the food was excellent. After ordering curry at most of the restuarants we visited on the island, El Patio had the most delicious. My 10-year-old daughter only wanted to eat there every day and order their curry. The mixed-meat kabob I had one night was cooked perfectly. And my younger daughter's "chicken strips" were... More

OK so were in San Pedro for about three days and kept walking by the El Patio. Not sure why most times it was empty. The guy kept begging us to come in, offered a 10% discount too. We took a chance. Six of us sat down and ordered basic right off the menu. My vegetarian step daughter ordered just... More
