Los Patios has been a long time favorite of my family. We love the atmosphere, the friendly service, and of course the food. Carlos, the owner, is always around, and the servers are kind and attentive. We have come here as a couple, with our entire extended family, and with our newborn and they have always made accommodations. I will... More

I hate to make it sound as good as it is because I do not want it overcrowded as some of the other good Mexican restaurants in San Clemente are. But to be honest with you this is our favorite Mexican restaurant in town. As I mentioned in the title the Rellanos del Mar are to die for. They are... More

This is a rather pricey Mexican Restaurant that is not a comfortable dining experience. The indoor table that we chose is next to where the owner hangs out and plays with his computer that emits sounds. We guess he is playing a game but it is annoying to us. Two visits and he did the same both times. Food is... More

We have visited Los Patios twice now and both times, the food was fantastic. The salsa and chips are good, a little heat to the salsa. The menu has all the standards and quite a few house specialties that are a little more creative. Being near the beach they also have a good variety of seafood dishes. The ceviche is... More

We evaluate a Mexican Restaurant by the salsa and we were right! It was average. Excellent service, cute and quaint with just OK Mexican food. Needs spice! Good margaritas and large menu selection. Parking at their lot. Happy hour available.

My husband and I went for lunch on a Saturday. We were concerned at first because the restaurant was almost empty at noon. It started filling up shortly afterwards. I had a fish taco and a carnitas taco. The fish taco was great! The carnitas taco was large but had little flavor. My husband had seafood enchilidas. They were quite... More

This place was a bit of the beaten path alright! Food was excellent, service was phenomenal. We both had soups (sopas) my wife had Posole, I had Caldo de Pollo(chicken soup) Servings were humongous, chips where freshly made, everything was great! I had read reviews with horror stories about them not accepting the Groupon voucher, (NOT TRUE) Everything was the... More

We visited with a group of 6 on a Tuesday night. they have a taco Tuesday promotion, so it was pretty busy. We waited about 10 minutes for a table. I had the chicken enchiladas with mole sauce. The sauce was excellent. It was a good consistency with just the right amount of chocolate flavor and spiciness. I loved that... More

We ordered meals for delivery, and everything was really good. The Tequila Chicken Wings are fantastic, be sure to get some. There was a small mistake on the order, and the delivery person phoned-in the remedy, and returned ten minutes later with the correction. Completely recommend this place....
