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.

This restaurant is located in a not so pretty area of town, but it is really good. I would work on bettering the décor and the strong light that comes through the windows, especially at noon, but the quality of the food is there. They have incredible and very traditional Peruvian dishes and their prices are very good. Check out... More
