I was not bowled over by the food - I had the papusa/taco gringa combo. Lots of locals hangout here to drink and eat. Someone is always up dancing.

El Patio is great for an authentic Honduran meal in a fun atmosphere! Very good to take international guests without intimidating them.

Be sure to come to El Patio hungry, because you will leave very full! The food portions are abundant and quality of food is very good. However, the restaurant is very loud and it is difficult to get server's attention when needed. The restaurant was fairly clean and the atmosphere was very busy. It is located on a very busy...

Great meat and vast food. They try to pamper their clients with fittings. They use imported meat and serve Honduran food as well.

Food is decent, prices are a bit high not too much. It is a noisy place and the attention is terrible, I had to get up to look for the waiter several times.

I went here on a recommendation from a coworker and loved the ambiance. The steak was good, dessert was excellent, service was excellent and getting there is easy via an inexpensive taxi ride, about 5 US. Lots of choices for drinks and no wait for dinner, the place is very big. You should give it a try.

I had been on a day tour of Tegucigalpa and was famished. My cab driver recommended this restaurant as among the best. It is like a huge, open shed with lots of decorations and a Mariachi Band. During lunchtime, it was easy to get a seat. The food was more on the expensive side, but the portions were huge. I... More

This place has all the main dishes from Honduras, and the size of the servings is generous. It's worth going there at least once, and it's not really expensive.

Its a MOST if you visit Tegucigalpa, Honduras
