“A Unique Experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 27, 2013

We have been to El Patio on several occasions and have always found the food to be of exceptional quality. We went there last November for my husband's birthday and had the most wonderful fillet steak we have ever had. Ingrid and Chef Rainer are wonderful hosts and you will most definitely have a memorable lunch or evening meal.

“Worth the short trip from Corralejo”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 14, 2013

Small hotel with restaurant run by a lovely German couple. No choice menu as what we have is what we serve but the food was excellent well cooked duck main course and great value for money. One of the best meals on the Island and we have eaten here many times.

“Superb dining and excellent hosts”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 13, 2013

We went to El Patio de Lajares to celebrate my husband's 50th birthday and Chef Rainer and our hostess Hanah Ingrid truly made the evening something to remember. The food and wine were excellent and tremendous value at roughly 50 euro per person for a fine dining 4 course meal with wine. As importantly, the Chef was absolutely superb in accommodating our special request for a vegetarian version of the set menu for our daughter, and our hostess was warm and friendly with a waiting hand crafted birthday card and celebration champagne upon our arrival. This is gourmet dining with a truly personal touch, the flowers on the table picked from the El Patio garden and the Chef chatting with us throughout the meal. They also have rooms available and our only regret was that we didn't reserve an overnight stay! It is easy to get to from anywhere on the island and absolutely worth a visit.

“Fine lunch and much more”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 27, 2012

Well, this is a non-conventional restaurant in many ways. This place is something you have to experience to really understand what i mean by non-conventional. As for the food it is excellent and beyond any doubt. Classical with a touch of creativeness. Magnificent chateaubriand. Superb prawns with prawns_head_sauce. The wine cellar is simply amazing, with very old good wines from France and other. There's a huge knowledge of both cooking and wining (the owners had restaurants in Germany before they moved to Lajares). Decoration is beautiful. Service is perhaps the weakness to improve: whilst the owners take real care of their customers, the local helpers are not yet ready for that level of restaurant. Nevertheless, an excellent dinner and funny extravagant experience. Highly recommended.

“Another fine lunch!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 26, 2012

another six hour lunch spent in the fine company of Hanna and Chef Rainer at the Patio. As always the food was exquisite....Chateaubriand to die for and and an amazing fish starter. An excellent wine cellar, makes for a most relaxing afternoon. We will be back again.......
