La Patrona last night--now with pictures
      #1735708 - 06/17/17 08:22 AM (168.0.84.219)

We went to LaPatrona last night and enjoyed it very much. The food was good. The ambiance is very nice, with a view of the harbor there. Last night there was a man singing, at a lovely LOW volume. They had a pretty decent selection of wines by the bottle for $16 or $18, can't remember which. There was a complmentary tostata with beans. I had the chicken Tampico


and Eric had the red enchiladas.


Both were good, although I thought my chicken could have benefitted from a white sauce, although perhaps they run light on sauce in general there. Eric cleaned his plate, so he must have thought his was pretty good.



We had the flaming coffee



and the bananas flambe


The young gentleman who was doing the 'flaming' was very nice

, but seemed kind of inexperienced.

They have some seating out by the side, with some gas firepits, which were nice.



I would go back, although I don't think I would pay for the flaming coffee again.

Afterward Eric went to check out the sports bar and was disappointed. Inside there was a bar with some seating and maybe 4 or 5 tables, outside about the same amount and 4 or 5 TVs. He said it was very small.

It's at Simpson Bay Resort, where Los Gauchos was, years ago, and the Steakhouse before that.

We own at SBR and was hoping for more. We were underwhelmed. We will go back because it is convenient. Lunch was more enjoyable than dinner. I love outside dining and the service was better also.

Thanks for the review Carol--we haven't tried La Patrona yet but always looking for different options and Mexican is a fan favorite in our house. Is there parking nearby? Just wondering where would put the cars. If we go to the Casino there, we usually valet and kind of avoid Buccaneer and Green House because there doesn't seem to be great parking options. If there are, we haven't found them yet

We parked at the lot which is on top of the Marina building, directly across from the casino. We told them we were going to La Patrona and they let us in. Actually, to me, Buccaneer and Green House have a decent amount of parking. Again, though, it is traditional pure Mexican, NOT Tex-Mex, so don't expect Tex-Mex.

Thanks Carol--with the parking, it just always seems so congested as we drive through there. A few of the group have some walking issues so I'm always looking for short walks.

Those that have issues walking I would drop off and take the elevator to the Marina

As far as I know, there's not an elevator that goes all the way to the Marina level? If so, I would love to know where it is. We took the elevator to one floor above the Marina level and then walked up and down that one set of stairs.
