It was by pure chance when together with our friends, we happened on El Patio de Mendoza. This little restaurant is run by a husband and wife team. Antonio is the maitre d', while Jenny is the chef. Both Jenny and Antonio have created a friendly and cosy atmosphere. The welcome and the friendly service made us feel like we... More

if you are in Estepona this restaurant is a must. The food is excellent, the cost is modest for the quality provided and the atmosphere is bouncy. The owners clearly care about the food and the experience. You might also hear 5 or 6 languages spoken by the diners, which tells you something of breadth of tastes the menu covers.

We went on a Monday evening and the place was very quiet, so we can't evaluate the atmosphere, however the general feeling was warm and cosy and the owner/manager was very attentive and pleasant. The only criticism was that the a la carte menu was somewhat restricted, though we had the set meal menu and enjoyed the food immensely. Will... More

We went there after eading the reviews on Tripadvisor. It has a very homely decor and a cottage feel. And it's run by the husband and wife team. Jenny is the chef and Antonio runs the front of the house. The fish soup is a must and the sea bass was equally good. They met all our expectation. I can... More

Two weeks ago we had an excellent dinner in his nice restaurant in the centre of Estepona. The menu offers different "very tasty" choices ( starter- main plate and dessert ) Price/quality relationship is the best. All plates are presented in a very colorful manner. So you can also "eat with the eyes" Hospitality and "feeling at home" are coming... More

We ate here at lunchtime today and had the €19 menu. We both had the delicious foie gras de pato (duck) which came with caramelized apple rings and a small, perfect salad. We followed this with an entrecote with bearnaise sauce and, in my case, salmon in orange sauce. Both excellent. And then the irresistible brownie with vanilla ice cream... More

My wife and I had dinner here on Tuesday night. We both had the leg of lamb which was delicious. The welcome and service was excellent. The restaurant was charming and cosy with an interior Andalusian terrace for when the weather is warmer. We will most certainly be back.
