As mentioned by other reviewers, don't be taken in by the outside it's like a tardis. However the only doctor, you may see, is Alphonso, who has a surgery on the next street or maybe Antonio Jesus, the nurse, as he has his health giving glass of vino tinto. Rosa, the cook, does a mean paella to die for. Well... More

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!

It's great fun ordering by pointing at menu and not knowing what's coming. Eaten here four times and always enjoyed the food. They have a snack counter in the bar servers area and... 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
