We visited this lovely restaurant for dinner whilst staying at Los Amigos Beach Club. It is about a 10 - 15 min walk from the club or a few minutes by car, there is plenty of parking. It was not busy the evening we were there, cannot imagine why because it is one of the nicest restaurants in the vicinity,... More

Yet another fantastic meal at El Patio! We have visited several times now and it is consistently good. The set menu for €17 is still amazing! I don't know how they do it for the price. Decor is beautiful and spotlessly clean and we are always made to feel welcome. Put this restaurant on top of your list of places... More

We came here to El Patio In October 2016 and left a review. We booked for New Years Eve and was not disappointed. The atmosphere was fantastic and the food, service second to none Pilar, Gert and all the staff worked very hard and it was a brilliant night. Brilliant!

We were told about this little Gem from a very nice couple who were having coffee in Los Boliches Café. We were not disappointed. It is a bit tucked away so it is best to ring for directions it only took us about 8 minutes from Los Boliches! The food is excellent and it is run by a lovely couple... More

Thought I had previously reviewed this Gem of a restaurant in El Faro on Mijas Costa. Discovered it first in 1998 and rediscovered it some year ago. We travel from Coin several times during our two week holiday to dine here. Now owned by Pilar and Gert it's a pleasure to come here and sit on the patio and enjoy... More

Have visited this restaurant a number of times now - more recently in May for my husband's 50th and then again a few days ago. Always a warm welcome from the owners. Food is fantastic and such good value. Fresh vegetables, all warm and fish/meat so lovely. It has never been busy when we visit but I am sure it... More

Our family of four visited this restaurant 5 times during our stay. The 3 course 17 euro menu for adults is fantastic value for money and really great food. They offer a children's menu, most of which is served with 3 types of vegetables. The chicken nuggets are home made and were definitely my son's favourite! The whole ambience is... More
