Started of well went rapidly down hill not because of the food but just the behaviour of the patrons! Who proceeded throughout the evening to get more and more drunk! And in the co owners Hannah's case dam right insulting. The Restaurant only seemed to have our party in which consisted of 3,maybe if there were a few more people... More

This was our second visit to El Patio and we were welcomed not as guests but as friends. Nothing is too much trouble. Reiner makes the best breakfasts I have had - a selection of cheeses, tomatoes, ham, chorizo as well as something cooked, which is always a surprise together with fresh fruit and honey yogurt and as much tea...

Whoever says it is 'the worst dining experienced ever' needs a 'fun! check up. The food was excellent and so was the ambience. A thoroughly brilliant time. My head is still bursting with all the laughing I did, Hannah is a legend, and Reiner a culinary genius. Looking forward to our next visit already, and hope the guests who have... More

On a trip to New York, I met up with old friends who told me they were in Fuerteventura and went to visit a magnificent restaurant called El Patio. Listening to the reviews I decided to go there with my family for Christmas Day, what a wonderful experience it was home away from home. Reiner and Ingrid were wonderful hosts,could... More

We were recommended this restaurant & went there with expectations!! The food was good but brilliant certainly not worth the 142€ we paid for a 3 course meal with a bottle of house red!! Mind you they did lay on entertainment in the guise of Hannah a co owner who was drunk when we got there & continued to get... More

Reiner and Ingrid who run this restaurant with rooms are the most friendly of hosts. Nothing is too much trouble for them. The breakfasts are a feast and if you eat there you are in for a treat. All the food is lovingly prepared by Reiner who treats cooking as an art form. As previous reviewers have said El Patio... More

If you are looking for something different from the big beach resort hotels then try this small hotel in the pretty village of Lajares. With just 6 bedrooms Hana and Reiner treat you as their house guests and take real interest in what you are planning to do and give some helpful tips about where to go. It is a... More

Having read the previous reviews our expectations were met and we were warmly welcomed and entertained by our hosts as if we were guests at their table. The food was delicious. It had been prepared with a genuine passion for taste and quality and served in an environment that reflected this. A memorable experience to be embraced for what it... More

We spent part of this year's holidays (December 2012), 5 days in the El Patio. It is a peaceful and uniquely built in the style of an inn. The kind hospitality of the owners and the excellent breakfast have added even more to the spacious and very comfortable room. Some of the balconies and the pool face south making it... More
