Have visited this Restaurant many, many times, but had lunch today with 2 friends who have never been there. Told them in advance that they had very little choice, but food was always excellent. Rainer knew they liked fish, and prepared us a beautiful meal, as always. wine is included in the very reasonable price of 41 Euros and we... More

We had a menu who is proposed by the chef (who is also the owner of the hotel). From the aperitif to the dessert everything was very well presented and very tastful. It was for us such a nice experience that we came twice during the same holiday. It was the best restaurant of whole Fuerteventura.

We picked this restaurant for One of the diners during our holidays in Fuerteventura, mainly because of its listing in the 2014 Michelin guide with two spoons/forks. It was the only Michelin listed restaurant in the Corralejo area we could find. I had checked the menu on the website of the restaurant that was rather classical, but seemed OK. Upon... More

We chose El Patio for our last night special meal as we were staying in Lajares. The setting is beautiful and unexpected and we were received by a beaming Rainer at the door and a glass of Prosecco. Hanna Ingrid is a superb hostess with amazing attention to detail and likes everything to be done properly. We were made to... More

This restaurant is in a different category from the many nice places around in Lajares and El Cotillo - this is fine dining and Rainer is an excellent chef. There is a set menu but everything is beautifully prepared and presented and makes for a really special meal. It is somewhat more expensive than other places round about but well... More

We visited on the last evening of our holiday as a special treat. The surroundings really are special, very luxurious which is quite difficult to find around that part of Fuertventura. Hanna who runs the place with her husband, the chef, is an experience! She treated us like difficult teenagers rather than paying guests, even telling my husband he had... More

We had a superb evening on December 24th. El Patio is a very special place, and we thought the quality of the food and service was really superb. The attention to flavours, the quality of the ingredients and the fab wine list exceeded our expectations. This place is a real gem. We enjoyed the hospitality of the hosts, Hanna and... More

The restaurant and the hotel is most beautifully decorated, situated in the tranquil village of Lajares, ideal for getting away for a couple of days. Well, what can I say, the food is created by Rainer, a master magician with extreme standards when it comes to his craft. An excellent wine cellar to boot. Hanna looks after you better than... More
