Both Restaraunt,s are owned by Enrique who is a most congenial host, both Julio at Enrique,s and Shami at Meson were the perfect hosts. The food is exceptional the Paella at Meson is to die for and the Beef Stroganoff and... More

We found this restaurant by accident, the restaurant we wanted was closed for vacation. How lucky we were. The restaurant is a typical meson very attractive, the food is delicious, extremely well priced and the menu of the day must be the best bargain in Spain. We now eat in both restaurants but the meson is our favourite. The staff... More

It's a while since we have been here,it's a good resturant, menu well set out, staff very good, a little touch the head waiter done, he lit the open log fire, what a difference on a cold night inFeb. There's no more I can say about this place only it is well worth visit .

An absolutely wonderful evening. Despite having a full house, service was relaxed, friendly and polite. The food was excellent. I had creamed spinach, which was a light and delicious starter, then the fillet stake in a truffle and cream sauce and finished with pineapple in cointreau. We were in the restaurant for about two and a half hours and didn't... More

Had the fillet, chefs special as advised by our waiter. Cooked to perfection, wine was also very good. Was a busy night and we had everything on time. We will be going back to this fantastic chilled restaurant in the very near future. Excellent staff well done to you all.

This is a lovely restaurant. The waiter is very helpful and friendly. We ate here twice in a week. I particularly enjoyed the turbot in champagne sauce. Our friends enjoyed the paella. They make you feel very welcome and it gets very busy. There is plenty of choice. I would visit again if in the area.

We waited for the menus for almost an hour. For the starters we waited another 40min and for the food another 40min. The service was not good and very slow. Our starters were tasteless and bland. The main course was very, very over cooked and greasy and tasteless. We returned one of the meals.. They also tried to charge us... More

Dear Gitta, We're very sorry you were disappointed with the service and food during your recent meal at our restaurant. As we have already replied in the previous review written by another member of your party that evening, we were caught 'off guard' due to the fact that it was the 1st January and were not expecting so many customers....
