El Patio Peruvian Restaurant looks so unimposing and small from the outside that you might miss it amidst the other shops in the strip mall on the main commercial road of Ft Myers (at the junction of Colonial and Cleveland Avenue). Once you come in, you will notice that many people have discovered the good food served here. The insides... More

This restaurant is tucked away in an older little strip mall, clean but definitely dated furniture.

This restaurant is tucked into a small shopping plaza on the busy Tamiami Trail. It is very worth stopping in for lunch or supper. The staff are very welcoming and friendly, always willing to explain various dishes on the rather extensive menu. I have eaten there many times and the food is always fresh and tasty. If you are tired... More

Stopped for dinner after movie. Read the reviews so I split the ceveche (fish & shrimp) & the lomo saltida (sp). We both loved these entrees. Our friends also had two different saltido entrees, which they thought were very good. The ceveche was wonderful! The fish very fresh! We'll be back!

I loved the food here. The fried fish was especially delicious. The fried yuca can't be beat. I wish I lived closer!

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
