Spent the whole evening there with another couple. We were 2 couple of friends. Reaaaally enjoyed my experience ! Starting with the service which is personalized and friendly. Gave us some great suggestions. We tried and shared 3 starters, and the meal, from the seafood to the meat (veal in our case) was sublime. The desserts are more than delicious too. Definitely worth trying, although the bill can become a little pricy but really enjoyed my time there!

L'ambiance est excellent, parfait pour manger entre amis, en couple ou en groupe ou pour le 5 à 7. Pour ce qui est de la nourriture, nous n'avons pas été impressionnés par les cocas (ça ressemble à une pizza) : la croûte était dure à couper et à mâcher, le reste de la mie était bonne, mais les ingrédients ne sont pas généreux : dans mon cas, seulement quelques tomates cerises éparpillées sur la pâte, du fromage mal réparti et même pas une feuille complète de basilic! Celle de mon conjoint était meilleure, mais les ingrédients n'étaient pas très généreux non plus. Bref, prenez autre chose que les cocas si vous y allez, ou allez-y pour prendre un verre et quelques entrées ou un dessert.

It is always a pleasure eating there. Service is always amazing and the food is great. The cocas are delicious. They willingly made some changes in a dish because of a picky eater in our group. Very much appreciated. Just go !

Malheureusement nous n'avons pas aimé notre soirée autant que nous aurions voulu! Un groupe était dans le resto, le niveau de bruit était assourdissant et le service à notre table très ordinaire, nous aveu l'impression de déranger les serveurs tout le long du repas. Nous ne reviendrons pas

Modern neighborhood restaurant in north end of Montreal.
Food was amazing. Octopus which was recommended by our waiter was best that I have had anywhere ,tender and with a smoky flavor,outstanding.
We also had a Spanish version of flatbread with tomatoes and goat cheese. Large enough for sharing and absolutely delicious.
Wines seem fairly priced,good selection of private imports

Service was spot on. Our waiter Miguel very helpful and extremely knowledgeable
Will return again to try the many other things on the menu

Meson Restaurant was an easy walk from the Metro. The service was excellent. We had a special with Portuguese anchovies, a flatbread with shrimp and white asparagus, a seafood stew, and ham and cheese croquettes. Everything was really good and I'd definitely recommend it. I do wish the ham and cheese croquettes had more ham, but I come from a place where you can get croquettes stuffed to the max with ham and cheese, so my opinion may be a little skewed. I'll be back. It was really good.

Our party of six had the most amazing time at Meson! We all shared six appetizers and we were not disappointed! I also had the cervice which was out of this world. !
Our waitress Maude was extremely attentive and very professional .
All the appetizers were superb it was worth ordering the six so we tried most of them , all except the snails as no one is a fan. As for the main course I had the tuna with fries which melted in your mouth and the fries were super tasty. The only disappointing dish was the pork chop. It was not really a hit, too buttery and quite boring. Having said that it really was the only disappointing dish of the night. The desserts were delicious, the ambience was cozy and the service was on point ! We will for sure be back!

Another great experience at Mesón Restaurant Général Espagnol.
Andy our amazing waiter and his team made us feel like family. Discovering Spanish tapas food in a beautiful modern decor in the heart of Montreal Villeray district.
Try the Spanish sparkling rosé...and let Andy make the food choices!
You'll love that place and will return for sure.
Thank you Marie-Fleur for making such good food at a reasonable price.
Mesón please just stay the same and we'll come back forever.
