After reading the reviews on this site we visited El Patio Chico twice on our recent holiday. The first time they had been closed for a couple of days, so didn't have a couple of dishes we ordered. Instead the chef/owner came out of the kitchen to apologise and offered us a much more expensive dish (Iberian Feather) than the one we originally ordered, but at the same price. The food and service was so good we returned last week and had the lamb chops and mussels. All meals look like a work of wart when served, and of a first class quality for a reasonable cost. Will definitely be going back on our next trip

but after going to El patio Chico,i must reconsider that headline,went last Friday with friends,have lived in Spain seven years and in general been very dissapointed with visits to Spanish resturants,this proved an exception,does not look much from outside. inside the food was excellent ,service very good,wine excellent,not many English in nearly all Spanish,
we had shared Starter quite expensive at around 10 euros, we had the Four Toastado and the other couple had Prawns on a Salad to share (Looked and presented very differently) we then had mains Pork meddalions,lamb chops and the Mussels in cream all excellent ,we had a bottle of Chilled Rose at 12.50, and bottle of Ribera del durao at 16.00 euros both excellent, i will be back.

Found this little gem from tripadvisor, definitely worth a visit. Fantastic atmosphere with excellent food. No frills or fancies just good tasting honest fresh Spanish tapas. The staff are so welcoming and friendly we didn't want to leave. There are so many dishes to choose from and what we had was delicious. Excellent value for money.

We went to torrevieja last week for a holiday and I always use Trip Adviser to search the best restaurants about. Unfortunately this time i was very disappointed! Luckily we were staying close by so not a far distance to be let down to much.
4 adults and 1 child, they took about 10mins to even acknowledge us, It was the afternoon and not busy at all, we got there just before the rush. We all really wanted Tapas and all they had was 2 dishes at the bar and they really didnt look very appetising whatsoever.. So we went for the 2 course Lunch Menu. Starters were nice, the usual - Soup, salad. The mains were not that great. You couldnt eat the Fish for the bones, every bite had to be disected then spat out. The Steak was like Leather and the vegetable were bland and tastless.
Sorry guys but this was not worth the visit.
