Description: El Patio Restaurant is a classic in Caleta de Fuste. It has a large number of tables on the terraces surrounding the protected area and a restaurant inside too large. The menu is very complete, with all kinds of meat dishes, fish, Italian and international cuisine. Reasonable price. Their staff is very good, friendly and professional.

“A perfect evening”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 19, 2013

There's always a warm welcome at El Patio, and caring and helpful service from all the staff. On our first visit we enjoyed an excellent chicken paella and delicious Irish coffees, while being entertained by the noted guitarist and singer, Alberto. Five of us returned to hear Alberto again, and everyone had a delicious meal - fan of sirloin in a mustard sauce, garlic chicken and grilled salmon were all first rate. There were complimentary drinks at the end of the meals, and on one occasion each of the ladies was given a single red rose - a lovely touch.

“satisfactory”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 17, 2013

first visit was good and couldn't do enough for you, second trip not so accommodating. If you have the lasagna, that is all you get, no chips or side salad, so not worth what they charged as still hungry after

“Not bad, not good”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 10, 2013

One of our more expensive meals and no where near as good as other places I had the pâté for a starter which tasted like it came out of a jar from the Asdas smart price range I fact probably not that good. My wife had mussels for a starter which looked like a great size portion maybe bat 20 most which had nothing in the shell she go 8 which is poor for the price you pay maybe just unlucky. The mains where not to bad though even though I sent my steak back it came back cooked perfectly and tasted lovely I think this restraunt could be a hit or a miss

“Poor service”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 8, 2013 via mobile

Been here before and found the place to be just okay. Went in last night and got the menus promptly but waited 20 minutes for the waiter to take our order, it was not overly busy but slow service. As the waiter started to toe our order he said ' I forgot to tell you about our specials' we reply should have been told about them when we were given the menus. The starters came quickly and were big portions and excellent. My mail meal was good but my partners was bad, she had stake with mustard sauce the sauce was cold and the meat tough. But that is not the main reason for the review. When I complained about the food the waiter said 'my English is very poor I don't understand' she called over another waiter and I repeated the complaint - this guy just smiled and took away the plates, no apology no let me get the manager nothing.
The food here is as I said at the start average but they need to improve but the service is poor. Would not recommend and will not be back.
