Great stop on the beach

Good food and drinks right on the beach make this restaurant a great place to eat and have a couple drinks. Homemade guacamole and tequila added to your margarita at the table. We will definitely be back.

We missed Meson Bay the first couple of times we were in Bucerias, but we won't make that mistake again. Excellent food and margaritas right on the beach. The waiters make your fresh guacamole right at your table, and it is delicious! Perfect place to watch the sunset. We wandered in for a snack one afternoon, and then came back... More

From the beach Meson Bay's appeal is immediate because the restaurant sits right off the water in full view of the bay. From the street Meson Bay is a surprise at the end of long driveway. No matter which direction you arrive from you'll be glad you did. The waitstaff is very good as are the drinks and the food.... More

Topped off with a glass of a decent chardonnay and a chocolate mousse with tequila sauce. the interior (a giant palapa) very nicely done and we timed our dinner to watch the... More

We ate at sunset! This place is right on the beach - we walked from our resort. Beautiful place and food was great! Excellent margarita's too! I had fajita's and everything was so fresh. My hubby had shrimp - very good. Waiters were wonderful.

We've been going to Meson Bay with our family and friends each year for about 10 years. This year was a big disappointment as it has new ownership and IS NOT the same. It's been redecorated which took away the charm it had originally. The food was ok, but for sure not the same. We always got their very large... More

We and our friends had a very nice meal here. The setting is quite relaxing and service was quite good. The evening we were there, they had music and we even joined in making it a fun event for all. The staff enjoyed our participation and gave us a free round of tequila shots. If you want a relaxing place... More

Such a delightful truly authentic experience in Bucerias Mexico. Service staff is accommodating, friendly and with the windows open, right on the beach, you feel you've stepped away from high tech, the fast pace of life and... you will come back, I guarantee. We were a group of 5 and came twice during our visit to Riviera Nayarit so we... More
