“Awesome burgers & cocktails on the beach”
Review of El Patio Sayulita

El Patio Sayulita
Ranked #67 of 160 Restaurants in Sayulita
Price range: USD 100 - USD 300
Description: El Patio is situated in front of the surf break on the main beach in Sayulita. We serve delicious cocktails and seafood made with the freshest, all-natural local seasonal ingredients. Come down, put your feet in the sand and enjoy the beach with a margarita and a ceviche. We also put a lot of attention on the music we play and create a new playlist each fortnight that pairs with our food and drink specials and the energy of the season. We mix it up, but love to play old soul, Jazz, and R&B tunes - you wont be disappointed

After spending the afternoon on the beach we nearly walked past this little gem El Patio but decided to stop for a cocktail to watch sunset. The burger menu looked delicious after a few days of eating tacos and we were not disappointed! The beef was so good- “organic grass fed from mountains of Jalisco”- and bun and sauces all made from scratch too apparently. We had the Classica and Big Kahuna burgers and they were the best we’ve had in Mexico without doubt. Tried the local mezcal too called Raicilla which is not to be missed- super smooth and great in their Sour and margaritas. All up a super way to end our day in Sayulita- will definitely be back!

If you like people watching while watching a beautiful sun set over the water, this is the place for you! Rio, our waiter, was super helpful. He is Australian and Mexican so is bilingual and very helpful. The mosquitoes were out but Rio was able to bring us bug spray which was much appreciated :-)

The hamburgers were tasty and the truffle fries satisfied our need for comfort food.

The billboard out front said they had ceviche and they didn't which was a bit disappointing.

This was our second visit to El Patio - I wanted to be sure to return this year on our day trip to Sayulita. We had the best guacamole we have had during our week long stay in Mexico - perfect spice. And the shrimp aguachile was also perfect - picante but just right. The topopos - tortilla chips were great.

We had a strawberry passion fruit mezcal (la coqueta) drink that was great. The vodka kiwi drink was also fabulous. The drinks had fruit you could eat after drinking the beverage.And the beer was super cold.

One of the best things - El Patio takes credit cards!

For starters, this amazing place in Sayulita, to really enjoy it you'll have to have patience!! The food is beautiful and a great place to enjoy the beach of Sayulita!! But on top of all the scenery and the great food!! It's the bar!!

The mixology here is just a creative place, where the alcohol and Mexican flavors mix all together!! You can have from a simple Cuba libre to a an amazing creation with Mexican distillery like mezcal, raicilla and pox!!

The drinks on the menu are beautiful creations, THE MOJITO WITH PASSION FRUIT, is the best mojito ever!!

But if you have an opened taste like I do, go for the "bartender choice" this are where the magic is made!! The bartender will create something so so beautiful in each drink!! The detail and the love that she puts in each drink, are by itself an amazing experience!!

My Wife and I were in Sayulita for a few hours and we were wandering. Good thing we got here with only an hour to go or we would have been here all day! First the two guys serving were very busy. The place looked small and we were unsure of staying, but one of the guys took us to a table and asked for our drink order. I had a Pacifico beer and JoAnne had a Margarita. Well the Margarita was not one of those slushy things but a real one, and it was the best of the trip! So congratulations to the bartender. There was no Pacifico that was cold, so they suggested that I get a different brand, and I chose Stella.

We ordered Guacamole and chips and a fish ceviche. The guacamole was very good. The Ceviche was excellent, with white fish, Jicama, lime juice and herbs and chilis. We had such a good time eating and looking around that we were sorry when our time was up. True we did not have a supper meal, but our meal was so fresh and so delicious! Keep up the good work and the excellent cuisine. And thanks for a great memory.

PS Sayulita is amazing. A cross between a Hippie town and a Surf town. Lots to see and do. If you are close go there and go to El Patio!
