I had no idea what a shrimp sandwich was until I visited them! It was great and definitely will go back!

“Good at everything!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2012

El meson is a great place to eat everything... they are famous for their sandwiches although I prefer their specials. The fish is fresh, the locl food is very good and not that costly.

You can also go at night and have a couple of drinks..

“Excellent food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2012

Excellent food, affordable prices, familiar environment. Very good restaurant. The waitress was not very attentive but it was not bad. I ate rissotto of skirt steak and maduros with tostones and was delicious. My husband had paella criolla and was good too. I definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone. I am writing this and I am thinking with that rissotto, mmmmmm. Go there, you will not regret.

“Great sandwiches on a budget and tasty margaritas- open 'til late”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2012

This is a nice place fro a quick lunch or a late snack. They have a great variety of sandwiches and other plates too. They have a big bar with a nice selection of drinks and sangria. The sangria was great! It is open until very late, (2-3am).
