Whilst holidaying on La Ropa I came to Paty's for breakfast with a friend who would regularly eat here each year whilst on vacation, Straight away the waiter called him by name and called out his regular order to him. The service was very friendly. The location couldn’t be any better right on the beach, relaxing with your feet in... More

We ate here twice on on trip, once for nachos for take out and once for dinner. Food was very good. The restaurant was right down the beach, a nice little walk from our resort. Service was decent as was the food. Nachos and salsa was very good, fish was fresh. Would definitely dine here again. No complaints.

We were walking on the beach early in the morning and decided to have breakfast there. It was all very good. The chilaquiles with green sauce were delicious but quite spicy hot and we eat hot.They were very generous with the chicken. The espresso was also very good. Our waiter was super nice and every time he saw us afterwards... More

This little cafe is close to club intrawest and a hidden gem. The wait staff are very attentive and it is lovely how the older staff assist the younger ones who seem to have no English. They smile when we use our very poor Spanish to order. The arrival of guacamole and chips with salsa is such a wonderful idea.... More

Had a delicious chicken in home sauce , a cream sauce with mushrooms. My wife had a burger and was not real happy with it, soggy bun and not very good. The owner stopped by and saw that and comped it, then offered a free dessert. At the end of the meal all the customers received a Kahlua and cream... More

We went to Patys and the food was ok but the service was terrible. I went today and was not even acknowledged for about an hour maybe more. I eventually had to wave over one of the waiters who had walked by me several times. I hope that they read the reviews here and improve. I also noticed that of... More

Terrific service. Good food. Lovely setting on the beach at La Ropa....day or evening. Umbrellas repositioned by staff for protection from the sun without customer making the request. Perfect breakfast menu! Paty's chicken soup particularly tasty when a simpler meal is required. We ate here often and were impressed with the warm and friendly attention given to us by the... More

We had lunch here on a Wednesday - it was pretty busy and there were no open tables on the sand, so we sat up in the restaurant at the wooden tables. The chairs have chair pads on them but they are very uncomfortable. We had service right away, and our lunch was good. The sandwich was tasty, but the... More

A lovely day at Paty's was ruined by petty Paty, whom you'd rather not encounter. After renting a jet ski and buying many rounds of drinks and food, my wife rinsed seawater spots from her eyeglasses using the dribble from the barely-functioning outdoor "shower". Paty suddenly emerged from behind her one-way mirrored office to publicly scold my wife for "wasting... More

We had our first meal here and we're not disappointed. Grilled chicken breast was cooked perfectly and the chilaquiles were tasty. There were even baby turtles that were released that night. Make sure to bring cash - no credit cards accepted.
