Delicious!! Every plate we received was so good and tasty. We were a group of 6 and we all chose the option to share many plates from the menu, tapas style. The money was worth the quality of food we tried.
I would definitely come back.

Excellents plats, nourriture savoureuse, bons ingrédients à un prix raisonnable. Le seul bémol est le service qui n’étaIt pas très attentif. Assiettes quasi lancées sur la table, serveurs froids. Dommage car ça aurait pu devenir mon resto de quartier préféré.

La nourriture est excellente, mais le service laisse vraiment à désirer. Le serveur n'était pas sympathique et à la limite méprisant. Le métier de serveur nécessite des qualités de base, dont la courtoisie et la gentillesse, caractéristiques que notre serveur de vendredi dernier ne semble pas détenir. En espérant que le service sera plus adéquat lors de notre prochaine visite.

- très déçue des choix sur le menu; rien de wow
- pas de gaspacho; remplacée par une crème de tomates... s'il y a assez de tomates pour la crème, pourquoi pas pour la gaspacho

La pieuvre était bonne. Le gravlax aussi. Mais rien qui ne m'a jeté par terre. Je m'attendais peut-être à un niveau semblable au Tapeo. Carte de vins très décevante. Aucun vin nature. Que du gros vanillé boisé.

We chose this restaurant to get together with friends we hadn’t seen for a year, and it was an excellent choice. The noise level did not prevent conversation, the food was innovative, the wines were good and reasonably priced and we were well served. After spending over 3 hours reconnecting, dining and drinking, we left Mesón fully satisfied.

Meson est mon restaurant préféré depuis des années. Nous y retournons pour les plats toujours aussi savoureux, toujours adaptés au besoin de mon conjoint allergique, et un service des plus amical et professionnel qui soit. Toujours de bonnes suggestions de vins et un service attentionné sans être trop envahissant. Merci à Maude et toute l'équipe pour notre dernière visite!

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 !
