Meson is on the main road of Isla Plana and if you are anywhere nearby don't miss out! At first glance you could be silly enough to look from the outside and think it doesn't look like much but that is where you would be so wrong! This is home cooked, wonderful spanish food served with a smile by lovely... More

The service is friendly, but do take a phrase book as only a little English is spoken but that adds to the charm. At lunch time the... More
