El Patio is a lovely restaurant. It gets very busy as it is so popular being so good. There is a great choice of menus with all the food being well cooked. The staff are all very friendly and the price is very reasonable.

I enjoy the food there, it is not a touristic place with lot of options to try and all of them were nice. Also there is an option for s complete menu for a good price that includes three plates.

Great restaurant, with a bit of a bistro feel at the edge of Vila seca. Wide variety and selection on the menu & all the food we have was top notch (pork medallions, quesadillas etc). Unfortunately they were out of crema catalana, so we will definitely be back!

We visited here 2 nights in a row because we loved it so much. The waitress on the first night was very helpful and really friendly. There was enough vegetarian options also - the fried aubergines with honey were to die for and the goats cheese balls were wonderful! The portions are big so we only needed 3/4 tapas between...

Turned up here too early to eat at 7.30 but had a relaxing drink whilst we waited for 8pm serving. Very popular with locals and the food was excellent. Best pizza we have ever had and two tapas dishes were great. Good value but make sure your Spanish is up to scratch as they don't speak much English.

Local restaurant, always packed, which says it all! Good variety of some quite original dishes, including excellent pizzas. Great menus del dia. Good family restaurant, though sometimes a bit noisy. Good value.

If you want to eat awesome tapas, you must go there!! The service is awesome, the food is delicious. The only negative point is that they dont have an english menu.
