The place is absolutely awesome, a colonial house with yard...and the salteñas, lovely. I wouldn't say these are the bet, because each city has a different way of preparing it (different dough, different ingredient), but it's definitely worth. 8 bolivians well spent!

Salteñas are a must try if you'r visiting Bolivia, and El Patio's are the best! Delicious dough, lots of filling, and a bright and clean outdoor eating area make El Patio an excellent place to start your day in Sucre.

The patio at El Patio is a nice break from the streets. The Saltenerias are good, but we found them a little sweet and actually preferred Flores next door. It doesn't have the same atmosphere though. Pay attention because its only open until 12:30.

A fellow traveller recommended El Patio. The Saltenas Carne was delicious. Better than the one that I had at the market yesterday but at 8Bob vs 3Bob it would have had to be.

The title says it all.. I loved the chicken one.. they have more options but trust me chicken is the one to go for. I was told about this place by a local and it didnt disappoint.
