Service is horrible, the servant is rude and ignored you. The food was okay but when we asked for the status of the order he said in a bad tone "we Have to Cook the food".

My wife and i visited on our recent holiday and were very much looking forward to our meal having eaten here several times in recent years. We ordered main courses of John Dorey and Seafood Paella. The paella was a grim shade of dirty brown and had to be scraped off the bottom of the pan and tasted like it... More

We had a fantastic mixed paella at Meson del Mar. Everything was perfect. The food was great, the wine was good and the view is amazing (overlooking the sea). I booked a table that afternoon, and as a result, they reserved as a great table. The service was excellent and the price wasn’t bad either. I can’t believe the bad... More

By luck tried this restaurant with my wife and daughter. There are some nice restaurants in Santa Ponsa but equally easy to find yourself in a tacky cheap tourist place. Meson del Mar boasted amongst other things, people wearing shirts! Nice relaxed well dressed crowd in a brilliant location overlooking the bay. Extensive menu mid-priced and extensive- superb traditional items... More

Having visited this restaurant for many years, we put up with the poor service from staff, as the food was reputable and the view was stunning. We visited this week. The food was appalling. A bit of meat with a slice of potatoe and a slice of courgette. What are the chef`s thinking of? Presentation is non existent. Portions are... More

This was one of the two worst meals we had while on holiday in Santa Ponsa. We picked it for its on the sea front idyllic location but we didn't expect the terrible food and dreadful service, a complete let down and the prices were ridiculously high for what was served up. The worst Paella I have ever eaten, all... More

There was a few things on the menu we had never heard of so we asked the waiter. None of them spoke enough English so I went for the Piella. It was beautiful. I normally hate squid but this was really nice.

The wife and I visited throughout our 7 day holiday last week. Each day that we visited the beautiful beach we would then also visit Meson del Mar. The views are amazing, service too, but the food is second to none. One day I had the T-bone steak which was one of the best I have tasted, another I had... More

The location on the side of the bay is beautiful, the service and food is adequate but not great. Shame as with just a little more effort the restaurant could be great.
