This was a very nice place to sit, relax and enjoy the biggest margarita I have every had!... and it was only a medium! Try the mango margarita. Delicious!

Most of the seating is outside, but all the tables are covered with umbrellas. The food was very good and the service was excellent! I had the Molcajetes -Volcanic Rock Round Platter. This was a very interesting dish and very good. If you have not eaten out of a volcanic bowl, try it!

Our waitress seemed more interested in the couple that brought their dog with them (who came in after us) then she did us. It took awhile to even get service AND it wasn't even busy, Three tables had people and that was including ours! When the food finally did come out, at least it was good.

A wonderful and relaxing piece of Mexico, I go to Old Town every Sunday for Mass and lunch. El Patio is one of my favorites, the atmosphere is perfect, live music on the patio and the food is authentic and amazing!!!! Margaritas are to die for!!! : )

I stopped in after a day at a convention with a couple co-workers. We had decided to walk around old town. The server was super friendly and did a great job. The food was very good. A very enjoyable experience. I am not a giant fan of Mexican food, but this was very good.
