Came here a group of eleven pre booked for tapas evening. They were aware we were booked snd the service was so slow it was unbelievable. Even when asking for some bread while they prepared our tapas took 30min. Overall the food quality good ambiance...good but the slow serving was what let this experience down.More

This was my 3rd visit. Great food, excellent service and ambiance. If you are looking for some Spanish food, i think they are the best. Quality is good. We order cheese platter, gambas, shrimp avocado tapas, soup and some mains eg, seafood pasta and mushroom...pasta. Deserts are also very good.More

A colleague and myself had dinner on Thursday evening. We arrived to find almost no one seated inside, but the outside area was full. Frankly, we were a little worried by the apparent lack of patronage. However, both the service and the food was excellent....I had the seafood risotto - a particular favourite of mine generally, and an easy dish to over-cook. it was up there with the best! My advice to anyone thinking of eating here - give it a try. I doubt you will be disappointed.More

Very tasty food, specially their deserts!! Though very less quantity, but your taste bud will surely thank you for having them. One thing more... they will not allow you to use camera. You can use mobile to click your memories..

Can’t think of a better place to host a business meeting over lunch. the food keeps getting better. Been here a few times before and will continue to patronise. Personally it’s glad to have had great comments from many nationalities that I have hosted here...for a lunch or dinner since El Patron started. Keep maintaining these high standards.More

We heard so much about the restaurant and we decided to give El Patton a try with colleagues. Couldn’t really figure out the decore and theme (Mexican name, Roman statues for a Mediterranean cuisines, go figure!) The food was tasty except the Chicken with mushroom...sauce, very salty. The filet mignon was good and cooked to perfection; however I’m a person that doesn’t like my steak served cut but in one piece. Overall we enjoyed the food, appetizers were a big hit with our group, with room for improvement.More

A mediterranean restaurant with elegant interior and small terrace. We absolutely loved the desserts among all the items. The service was also praiseworthy.

I have a rule that generally serves me well: Restaurants with the most bizarre decors serve the best food. I still can't get over El Patron's decor. Like what is even happening here. A Pablo Escobar themed restaurant with random faux Roman antique statues from...Thailand serving Mediterranean food. To the owners: The "Med" in "Medellin" isn't for Mediterranean - but I envy the mental trip that took to that conclusion. Anyway food: I think I've decreased my lifespan by a couple of years because their squid tapas had so much salt in it I felt like I was dry drowning. It's like being waterboarded but...dry. So like never again but I will give you one star for making your dreams come true in the decor.More
