Stopped by and had a beer during carnival time. Very friendly staff watched my personal belongings as I toured the inside. Beautiful. It was an unexpected trip as I had been ill for two months so where our what else to do but go to a beautiful island to recover.

We wandered to the rooftop of El Patio one night when we heard live music. Ryan Rickman plays every night and he is awesome! Our bartender, Hope, was excellent! This was the best night we had in Isla! We will be back the next time we visit =)

Love this place! We sat on the upper patio and listened to live music, while sharing a few of the tapas on the menu. All were delicious! They also pour a decent glass of wine, sometimes hard to find here. It's a great place to kick back, listen to music, people watch, and have good food.

We wandered in to El Patio after dinner one night and were glad we did! We only had time for one drink before the live music was over, but it was a good one! The open air upstairs patio is a great spot, worth visiting.

My wife and I live in Playa del Carmen and we've visited Isla Mujeres many times. We've been to El Patio before, but this was our first visit since a change in ownership. Our initial encounter was with Maya, the bartender, and we can't say enough about how friendly and welcoming she was. And to top it off, she made... More

We tried this spot during our second vacation in Isla, looking for something a bit more relaxed for the two teens travelling with us. Two guys had schnitzel and described it as "fantastic!" One had the pasta with pesto and roast chicken and said it was "awesome!" But we all agreed that the Mediterranean grilled fish I ordered was the... More
