“worth the hunt”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 16, 2013

Having read the reviews on TA we set out to find this Restaruant. We found the Hotel La Patio and this was it. We had not booked on a Fridday night at 7pm but the manageress looked through the reservations and found that she could fit us in. We were not rushed and the meal was excellent. Coffee and drinks were served in teh comfortable lounge and the table we were at was still not occupied by the time we left - though it was custom was building up.

Excellent recommendation from previous reviews.-th food was a delight and the service unassuming. Well worth it.

“good, but average for the price”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 30, 2013

The best thing about this place is the patio - the back garden which is a beautiful setting to have a meal. However if the garden is the best bit that creates a bit of a problem.
The food was by no means bad, parts of it were rather good. I had a mix seafood platter starter which was competently cooked and as good a sea food as one can usually get. My partners starter was less successful, again great sea food but slathered in rather too much fatty sauces.

We both had steak for a main and this was the most disappointing bit. They were huge, very sinewy and quite tough. The Bearnaise sauce they came with didn't quite synch somehow in the way that a great sauce would. I certainly would have rather they'd spent twice as much on half as much and bulked it out with a few more potatoes.

It the end, I felt I could have done better at home.

“Perfect dining experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2013

Quite honestly, one of the nicest dining experiences I have had in a very long time. My wife and I ate in the courtyard garden, which was an absolute delight, served efficiently by friendly staff. The menu was quite short (always a good sign) and the food didn't disappoint - fresh ingredients, well cooked. Good choice of wines, perhaps slightly too expensive, but only slightly.

I would recommend this restaurant to those who appreciate good food and surroundings. A delightful experience.

“Perfect”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 24, 2013

Beautifully cooked and presented food, great wines, good service, lovely peaceful courtyard on a warm summer's night. What more can you ask for? Concur with the other positive reviews. I booked by email a few days before our visit and it was answered promptly.
