“Superb!”
Reviewed 25 June 2014

This place doesn't open till half one so you may have to hang around a bit, but it is really worth it! We were greeted by one of the chefs who took the trouble to go through the menu with us - a nice touch much appreciated. They don't speak a lot of English here but so what? Let's speak a little Spanish - we are in Spain! Appetiser was aubergine strips, fried and served with honey - delicious. We opted for tapas expecting small portions. We had mussels, grilled mushrooms, anchovies, cod croquettes, patatas bravas and pork skewers washed down with a dry white. Small portions? Could hardly move afterwards. The food was really good, freshly cooked and served expertly by our waitress who went out of her way to assist us. 46 Euros with a bottle of wine - bargain.
Meson San Rafael is a bit hidden away, just off the seafront behind a precinct, but is well worth ferreting out. Excellent food, service, wine and Spanish ambience. But! If you want their paella (it looked GORGEOUS!), you need to order in advance and make a reservation.
