“Another Wonderful Evening”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2013

We have made Meson Del Angel my "birthday" spot for several years. It continues to delight. As many reviewers have noted the best way to start is the table side Mojito service, all of them are incredible though I personally prefer the Blueberry/Basil version with Vodka. The food items are always excellent, well portioned and very nicely presented. Tonight we tried the Guacamole Casa, Octopus with Habanero Vinaigrette (not that hot), Chipotle Shrimp and Chile Rellano Nagalos. The Chile was especially wonderful as it is a very classic and hard to get recipe from Old Mexico from Pueblo. It is a Chile Poblano stuffed with ground beef with an amazing sauce of ground almonds and various fruits. It is a holdover from the Renaissance cuisine that the Spaniards brought with them to Mexico.

“Amazing Mojitos”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2013

Third visit here in two years. So good have to keep coming back. Alberto's Mojitos are the worlds best ( or at least Mexicos best). Food was excellent. The chicken mole is superb.

“Awesome table side mojitos”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2013

3 different mojito choices, one with rum, one with vodka and one with tequila. All fresh fruit and juices used, my favorite was the fresh blueberries with vodka and basil. Terrific appetizers, fresh made guacamole, chips and salsa. Authentic food, very reasonably priced - we had the bacon wrapped shrimp, enchiladas and shrimp fajitas. All were fantastic. Will be back here again next year.

“Wonderful Meal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2013

We loved this place—great service, ambience, food and mojitos! It was a little off the beaten path due to road construction but well worth the effort. Highly recommend it!
