Got to know Norma and Deb five years ago and first time back since - we were treated like family both then and now. They really do serve up excellent eats at a reasonable price and the location provides a wonderful view of the beach with all of its sights and sounds. We were amazed at the transformation of Pata's... More

We've been coming to Patas for years. I'm not exaggerating when I say they serve the BEST MARGARITA IN MELAQUE! Norma and Deb are wonderful. Favorite dishes are the Denver burrito and the fish & chips. Our plane lands around 3:30pm so after getting through customs, checking into our hotel, we usually get to Patas just before sunset. Hugs and... More

Happened to stop in, Deb was super welcoming. Wait service was great. We sat outside at a table on the dead end street looking out to the beach, sounds of the waves crashing. First dinner on the coast as we were just arriving. I had a lovely huge salad. It was a very interesting combination of apple,banana, roasted pecans, chicken,... More

Have been visiting Pata's for a few years. The margs are so good,yum. My favorite is the shrimp salad. Outstanding. The Denver burrito is really awesome, with green chili that is a winner. The hamburgers are nummy and fries are best around. Great place to hang out, enjoy the view. Deb and Norma are positive, happy ladies who happen to... More

Ate here once during our week in Melaque. The food was good, not outstanding but solid. The location is nice and the service was pretty good as well. Not sure I would rank this as the best restaurant we ate at in Melaque but it was pretty good.

A small welcoming place where the food and drinks are great, the service is friendly, there's a great view of the ocean from the patio and lots to look at inside the restaurant. You may even be acknowledged by one of the owners cats.

Another favorite. Small, but the food is outstanding. Owners Norma & Debra are friends. Try the Denver Burrito, hubby's favorite - ask to spice it up with extra chiles ;-) Great margaritas and micheladas, big screen TV.

We went here 2 or 3 times during our month in Melaque this year, based on reviews here. We had the highly recommended salad, burger, and burrito, and all 3 were just OK. Nothing wrong with the food, but it is a little pricey, quite Gringo-style, and there are better and cheaper places in town. The fries with the burger... More
