  • Looks like it's being rebuilt.
    They are certainly building walls.

  • Apparantly the roof needed repairing, looks like it's having a full re-furb now!!

  • Sandy said that she had not been consulted in the drawing up of the new plan for the bar, but Harry (Gloria's friend) told me yesterday that it was to be built with aluminium instead of wood.

    But have you seen the levels of the block work?
    As usual the work starts a day before an Island holiday, so we have plenty of time to admire it.

  • The seating area now looks very reduced.

    The character of this bar has disappeared.

    It looks like a storage shed. Perhaps there

    are some clever finishing touches to go on?

  • I agree Orange, it needed to be smaller that the last one, to get more people in. Lets face it, it wasn?t the biggest place in the world.  :-\\

  • Actually the seating area is exactly the same, if people had watched the progress the block work was built on top of existing blocks, the only difference is to the left side where the barrells and crates were kept has been filled in. You dont see all that now. If it was any smaller where would they keep that ice cold beer and those yummy burgers that sandy and wendy are so famous for dishing up!!

  • Yes - its the build up of the previous open area.

    They have some competition underneath now as well...

  • Going up the hill towards Los Gigs from Puerto Santiago you go around the tight bends of Spanish Corner and will find El Patio on your left as you start to go up the hill. It is opposite the Fisherman's Museum not far from Puerto Pesquero.

  • The Patio bar has NEVER been an indian restaurant it has always been a bar. The  small reastaurant below the patio was once an indian before Connie and Dietmar turned it to a german Restaurant la paloma del puerto, they left 2 years ago and about 4 months ago a spanish family moved in.
