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.

Wonderful tapas and desserts. Good to go with a group and share different items on the menu. Exercise a little discipline on ordering because it can get a little expensive.

We have eaten here probably a hundred times in the last 8 years and we held our youngest daughter's wedding. We go for their Mother's Day Brunch each year with all our kids and grandkids and the selection is great. We go for dinner maybe 6 times. Year but what we really enjoy is a late lunch. If you join...

This is one of our favorite restaurants in Naperville. The food is consistently outstanding. The small plates are nice to share with others. One of our favorite places to go with friends too. The Sunday brunch is out of this world. It's always a treat when we do it.

Never having experienced truly tapas dinning this is not like what I have seen on TV. However, if you want some extremely diverse tasting food designed to be shared there is no other place like it in Naperville. Beautiful setting and a great place for a special almost unique dinning experience. Pricey but worth it. Some outdoor seating and rather... More

My husband and I have been to Meson Sabika countless times. It's where we celebrated our 10 year anniversary and since then we've been coming for birthdays, Valentines and anniversaries. It's a place where we bring our family and friends from out of town to. We love the ambiance first of all, and the food selection is great! Lots of... More

I have visited this establishment frequently and have always had a great experience from the food, service, ambience and entertainment. Easy parking and away from the crowds in downtown Naperville. Small plates is such a fun way to enjoy the variety of foods and so going with a group is the best way to take advantage of the many offerings... More

This place has a fantastic location and it's glamorous. If I were in Chicago, I rather go to Café Ibero or Café babariba, that's more authentic and cheaper.
