Weddings and summer patio!

We love to go to Meson Sabika for Sunday brunch, it is a great way to taste a lot of their tapas dishes! They also have a kids buffet with burgers & hot dogs. My family really enjoys this restaurant & looks forward to going!

I’ve been there a few times and while the ambiance is great, the food is ok at best (even the so often commented paella). This is a restaurant I really wanted to like, but can’t get myself excited about going back.

Great tapas. Love the bacon wrapped dates and pincho solomillo. Great horseradish potato salad and filet bites. Family style fun and flavorful dishes. Unique house atmosphere to eat in, although I enjoy the patio. Good place for friendly conversation. Nighttime is fun, brunch is also good. Usually requires pre planning for busy periods.

I went here this afternoon with my sisters after reading all the reviews. We decided to try something different. We sat outside since the weather was so nice. The service was very good. The waiter asked if we had been there before and when we said we had not, he explained the menu. We started with bacon wrapped figs on... More

Nice atmosphere, very good service, excellent presentation, excellent food. You really can't go wrong here. There are numerous selections and even if you didnt care for one it's not the end of the world. However, I have not found anything on the menu that I didn't enjoy.

Went here on a Friday afternoon around 4 PM for a "late lunch". Restaurant is in a cool old mansion. We were seated promptly and greeted promptly by our server. Started off with three tapas, including two chilled tapas and one hot. The chilled ones were Tostata con Centollo and Gambas Marinadas. Hot was Piperrana de Buey. They came out... More

Meson Sabika is one of the few tapas restaurants that I know of. Having been there before, I knew what to expect and was neither surprised nor disappointed. However, the menu and décor haven't really changed in 20 years and I found the food to be fair to good. Nothing stood out. Not crazy expensive but not cheap. If you... More

Delicious tapas with favorites-Salmón Curado con Queso, Queso de Cabra, Pipirrana de Buey, Datiles con Tocino, and Plátano con Helado. Enjoy the patio in the Spring and Summer.
