We were staying at the Hilton, so El Meson was an obvious destination for breakfast/brunch. They do it very well. There's a wide selection, including many Mexican treats. They do the obvious things -- an made to order omelet bar for example -- but also have a fruit salad station where a staff member carves a fruit salad to your... More

A little pricey, but the breakfast buffet is fantastic. We didn't have lunch there but did eat dinner a couple times there. The dinner menu could be expanded a little, but otherwise very good. And Victor, the manager, or one of them, was outstanding. Always remembered us and was very polite. Great restaurant.

It's a very good restaurant with cuisine that is above the average. It is Mexican gourmet cooking. The Huachinango(red snapper) and arrachera(flank steak) are especially good.

We stopped by for lunch after flying in to town. We both ordered the carne asada plate. Not something I usually order for lunch but glad I did. So delicious! Perfect service too. The view is beautiful. We have dined here over the years and continue to come back.

Jet lagged we decide to dine in-house at El Meson which specialises in Mexican cuisine. Sitting by candle light, a lovely old lady approaches our table with a trolley. She’s wearing what could only be described as a large cream hessian table cloth that she’s stolen to make into a dress and embroidered colourful pansy’s all over it to complete... More

The breakfast menu changes every so often, but they always have the staple American breakfast items - eggs, bacon, french toast. They also have a few meaty and vegetable options. The fruits were always fresh and delicious. Their pastries were amazing and they also had an omelet station available. The juices were freshly squeezed. Possibly my favorite thing about this...

Located in the Hilton. Breakfast buffet has continental or full options. Food is good with many options. Pastry and breads are homemade. Service is friendly and fast. OK value and convenient. Better options for dinner are available though. Awesome views from the outdoor seating.

French toast, juices, bacon, and rolls are among the best I have ever had. These seemed to be the staples, with a variety of other foods that seemed to change daily. Everything was fresh, and the service was excellent. One server of note, Luis, did everything possible during our stay to be helpful and should be commended for his work.... More
