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

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

We celebrated our 45th wedding anniversary by availing ourselves of the Gourmet Meal and B&B package. We had a great time - excellent accommodation and a fantastic evening meal. Our hosts Rainer and Hanna made us feel very welcome in their unique style. Rainer is a brilliant chef and Hanna very attentive as host - we had a great all... More

We have been to El Patio on several occasions and have always found the food to be of exceptional quality. We went there last November for my husband's birthday and had the most wonderful fillet steak we have ever had. Ingrid and Chef Rainer are wonderful hosts and you will most definitely have a memorable lunch or evening meal.

Small hotel with restaurant run by a lovely German couple. No choice menu as what we have is what we serve but the food was excellent well cooked duck main course and great value for money. One of the best meals on the Island and we have eaten here many times.

We went to El Patio de Lajares to celebrate my husband's 50th birthday and Chef Rainer and our hostess Hanah Ingrid truly made the evening something to remember. The food and wine were excellent and tremendous value at roughly 50 euro per person for a fine dining 4 course meal with wine. As importantly, the Chef was absolutely superb in... More
