If you plan to eat dinner with friends or family this is the right place. In front of the heart of town you can delight yourself with traditional gastronomy. Corundas, huchepos, charales and "enchiladas placeras" are simply delightful.

Friends of ours from Morelia always eat here and so we do too. The central plaza in Patzcuaro is ringed with cafes and restaurants and it's bit hard to choose. Like many places El Patio has indoor and streetside eating. The inside is whimsically decorated...More

My husband and I ate dinner here twice. We especially enjoyed the pork chops and fish tacos. The beet and walnut salad is outstanding. The flan is a bit heavy for my liking. The waiters are very attentive.

Fast service, good food. Very typical "holiday town" type restaurant. Caters primarily to foreigners so food is good, but uneventful. Overall a good experience, fast and fresh food amidst a celebration of their long departed ancestors (Noche de los Muertos)

Ate here three times as the atmosphere, service, and food were above average. A comfortable but warm and home style atmosphere. Service was excellent and meals about $10 U.S. dollars.
