Please feel welcome in these five-century-old walls and floors, as many have done before you: in the first tavern of the New World.
Brasserie Pat’e Palo witnesses a great history; a history stemming from the birth of a new continent — with its conquests, its governors, its viceroys, its sailors, and, of course, its pirates.
One of these pirates was Englishman Sir Francis Drake, who wanted, by forceful terror, to take hold of this beautiful land. Then, from across the ocean, appeared Dutchman Johannes Frederikzoon — our Captain Pat’e Palo. This brave pirate, worn out by the taste of salty water on his lips, abandoned his ship and his treasures to stay here on this island. Mutilated and wounded, he found home within this tavern, holding a steady one-eyed gaze towards the tumultous Caribbean Sea while distancing himself from the piracy and the pillage. Abandoning the sea, he filled his heart with merriment and the good company he found here — as many do to this day.
Our team maintains the same riotous spirit, vociferously serving the latest creations of Chef Saverio Stassi.
