This restaurant is tucked into a small shopping plaza on the busy Tamiami Trail. It is very worth stopping in for lunch or supper. The staff are very welcoming and friendly, always willing to explain various dishes on the rather extensive menu. I have eaten there many times and the food is always fresh and tasty. If you are tired... More

Stopped for dinner after movie. Read the reviews so I split the ceveche (fish & shrimp) & the lomo saltida (sp). We both loved these entrees. Our friends also had two different saltido entrees, which they thought were very good. The ceveche was wonderful! The fish very fresh! We'll be back!

I loved the food here. The fried fish was especially delicious. The fried yuca can't be beat. I wish I lived closer!

I have been to El Patio many times, both in Cape Coral and in their Fort Myers locations. The food is always well prepared, fresh, and delicious. The seafood does not taste fishy ,it is always very fresh. They use just the right seasoning on everything to give it great flavor. I visited Aji Limon, which also has two locations,... More

We have always visited El Patio for years, bringing our family and even friends from overseas to eat at this restaurant. The last visit made me upset, the ceviche was bad and the dish Tiradito was also warm and bad, considering it is fish, we did not eat it. They charged us for both dishes even though we told the...

First, as I have never tasted Peruvian food before, I do not know if the dishes are authentic or not. To start with the service was excellent and the food all tasted good and the seervings were ample. We had Causa Rellena de Mariscos which was very good. It is served cold and the filling mixture, with a hint of... More

Lovely restaurant, great service and authentic food. The seafood rice was cooked perfect and had great flavor. The corn with cheese as an appetizer was interesting and delicious, make sure to use some homemade hot sauce on it! Great place to try something different.
