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! This is home cooked, wonderful spanish food served with a smile by lovely... More

This is what I expect of a remote Spanish restaurant. The ladies serving very friendly but do not speak English. Do not be put off by this. 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

This does not look like much from outside or when you immediately enter, you can sit out front on the main street then you come into a old little cafe for a seat chill out and drink beer or a coffee this is very Spanish in Isla it's where most of the locals reside. Go up the step at the... More

The restaurant and bar -La Meson, is situated on the main road in Isla Plana. It provides an excellent Menu De La at lunch times. The decor is basic but authentic Spanish style. 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
