Forget the falafel stand that is gaming the Trip Advisor review system - El Patio is the best place for your dinner. It's a coffee shop, breakfast and lunch place all day long, then at night the back garden comes to life, live music sets a tranquil mood, and first-rate service brings you everything you need. I ordered some terrific... More

The food was acceptable, but nothing special. We each had the fish special as our main, but it wasn't memorable so I can't even describe how it fell short. The service was decent enough and the dinner wasn't overly expensive. All in all, Meh. I'm guessing being a cafe their breakfast would likely be better.

Food was really good. The patio at the back of the restaurant was a beautiful setting. I was there with family including a 1-year-old and the waitress and waiters were very nice and accomodating.
