I have tried to eat at Patio since it opened a few months ago but unless you book it is likely you will not find a table. Last Thurdsay we were lucky and found a small table.

During the summer months the main sitting area is outside with a few tables inside. The outside is cleverly designed with modern materials, contrasted up against the high decorative wall with the old louvered windows- they are painted in multiple colours and lid from behind creating a breathtaking backdrop for the courtyard. The bar is on one corner with a few stools but the whole space feel casual and relaxed-good for drinsks and food.

My party opted for beers and I chose a cocktail called Olga which was rum based-it was very good. The food we had was overall very good. The patatas bravas we had, were served whole with a tomato and cream sauce on top in a pan. I wished they were a bit more spicy. We had some plantain like chips which were served with quacamole dip. This was my favourite dish-reminiscent of brazilian and south american food. We also had mushrooms stuffed with local sausage, grilled chicken tighs with a tomato dipping sauce, and a cheese platter. Sadly the food is served in elaborate and sometimes awkward ways-possibly to evoke a gourmet flair on the plates. For example the plantain chips were served in a glass, the salads have a flute glass with the dressing resting amongst the greens, the grapes of the cheese platter were in a sardines can, the jam was closed in a small jar etc. I did not find the food to be gourmet and hence I find this attempt in the food, pointless and unneccesary. I wish food is served in a more humble manner, aligned with the casual feel of the place.

Paid €17 per person inclusive of drinks but I presume if we were hungry for a full meal we might have paid between €25-30. I must admit that I will visit the place again mainly because of it ourdoor's ambience and lively character and secondary for the food.

Went on a wednesday night for diner. Lovely decorated plates, interesting cocktails and great service.
The atmosphere is relaxed yet cool and the decorations outside are worth the visit.
Must try the halloumi panacota and sangria !!!
