The first to arrive was the Queso Frito, a sharing dish of goat cheese, orange blossom honey, walnut, and figs. This was a really tasty dish! The round goat cheese was covered with the orange blossom honey and crispy on its surface. When K cut through the cheese, there was also some hot goat cheese that oozed out. It was so good! The walnuts and figs were a good addition to the dish. I was really impressed with this cheese dish!

I have had good charcuterie in Spain and the Spanish charcuterie here at Patria sure didn’t disappoint. We ordered the platter, Selección De Embutidos, of ibérico lomo, ibérico chorizo, jamón serrrano, and salchichón. Within the platter itself, I couldn’t distinguish which meat was which but all I know is that it was all really good!

I enjoyed a glass of Red Sangria. It had red wine, port, sweet vermouth, Spanish brandy, spiced poached pear reduction cloves, orange juice, and pear nectar. It was amazing! One of those really good red sangrias.

K enjoyed a bottle of Sidra Bere, crisp and refreshing apple cider from the Basque Region of Spain. I wasn’t a huge fan of this rougher tasting apple cider.

Up next, we received our small plate of paella. The Paella Patria had gulf shrimp, mussels, calamari, fish, snap peas, clams, and saffron. Mmm, this was an amazing paella!! It might be one of the best paella dishes I’ve ever had. It was so full of flavour and the seafood were all so fresh and plentiful. It was so good!

We finished off with a meat dish which was the Albondigas, wagyu meatballs with spicy tomato piperade, onion, and manchego. K really liked the wagyu meatballs! I thought they were good; the meatballs were very densely packed.

We enjoyed really good and friendly service from our server that night. He checked us on us periodically and was very upbeat.

They were open on Sunday which was wonderful. Smoking is not allowed on the patio or in the restaurant. The patio was so relaxing! The sangria was really good as was the seafood paella. We ordered a small and that was enough for the three of us plus we had several appetizers as well.

We chose to sit in the patio and honestly it's literally sittings at the bottom of the back wall of another building. Having said that, ample space between tables and decor was nicely done. Food was amazing and I highly recommend the Selección de Embutidos, Paella de Pollo and Secreto Ibérico. Our waiter Marvin was friendly and extremely attentive. Definitely will go back again.

super atmosphere as we had a chance to eat outside with the great weather. We ordered a large scallop paella (special) for 3 of us and it tasted superb with the crust @ the base extremely enjoyable. We ordered some small tapas - Pan con Manchego, Pan con Tomate and Octopus layered on fingerling potatoes.

Had a good bottle of Spanish wine and desert (not a huge desert fan but needed to try something) A couple of us got the chocolate pudding with olive oil & sea salt (great flavor combination) & Mousse de Avellana (Hazelnut Mousse)
