"Great for a Tequila fuelled night out"

This is a tale of two venues in the same site. The ground floor provides a relaxed food offer while the basement is a hidden Tequila den.

This restaurant provides some of the best Mexican Street Food I've had. Whether going for a selection of Tacos and sharing with friends or hogging a Burrito to yourself, you're going to enjoy it. Especially if you have some of their home made salsas or Guac. On a Friday, sometimes the volume can be a bit loud before you've finished dinner. So much so that you can't hear your friends speak that easily.

Hands down, one of the better Tommy's Margaritas I've had. Rest of the menu is ok. Lots of very juicy drinks which I guess is good for the late night crowd, but if you want a boozy drink which isn't a Tommy's, there isn't really much on offer. They have quite a large selection of Tequila in the basement, but not much Mescal for serious Agave fans.

On Friday's they have a band which play lots of pop medleys. If you're hammered by the time they start, it can be quite fun, but once you've seen them a couple of times, it can become very boring very quickly.

When that place is busy, it is BUSY. So much so that it can be difficult to get to the bar let alone get a drink. It feels like the venue is often over full.

The drinks prices are pretty average if not slightly expensive for suburban London.

In general, there are more positives than negatives for a night out in El Patron. If you like to drink proper Tequila and not paint stripper, it is definitely worth a visit.

"Great food and good cocktails"

Just moved to Putney and decided to check out the local restaurant and bars. This is definitely a venue I will be visiting again, the food is Mexican themed and very tasty, so are the drinks, with tequila inspired cocktails. The venue is a bit small and apparently it gets very busy especially on Fridays when they have the live band playing tributes from the 80's 90's and today's chart hits.

"Great atmosphere and delicious food!"

The Mexican food here is amazingly delicious and great value for money! However I would recommend you book in advance as it's not the biggest venue and tables are limited and waiting times can become very long.

"Fantastic food and music ruined by a service manager wannabe"

This is a great restaurant in Putney with a fantastic food and atmosphere. The problem is that is run by under trained catering staff, the waiters are attentive and try to do their best but clearly you notice they are improvising half of the time. This can be explained including but not limited buy the arrogance and lack of service sense from the shift manager that doesn’t have a clue host to run a professional venue

"Great tequila bar"

Have walked past this El Patron a few times and last night we decided to go and check the place out. I didn't realise they had a basement bar, we walked downstairs and the place was absolutely rocking, people drinking an dancing, bar tenders singing dancing and serving drinks. The DJ was great played some really good tracks, a variety of all genres. The cocktails are great and are not too expensive. Will be back for some more.
