“excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2013

This little restaurant was well reviewed and we concur. The priciest meal we had in Leon but very delicious. and our waitress was excellent and so friendly. Don't miss the flan. She wasn't kidding when she said it is "divine."

Dear Lou M.,

Thanks you for reviewing Meson Real!!! We use the best ingredients and that makes the difference, we have the best quality and it shows!!! We think that our prices are a great value and very competitive!!!

The "Famous Flan" is "To Die For" great taste and the most special thing about it is the texture. It is special!!!

Thanks and we hope to see you back,

Gustavo and Family

“Got only the main dish!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2013

The best thing about this restaurant was the decorations. It felt like a nice place but wish I had my ear plugs. Car sirens were going off every 5 minutes and I was having a headache.
I liked the main dish, chef’s shrimps. It was very tasty. Ordered 3 different disserts, but none was available, but the waitress was trying to convince me that what they had was very good. It was not even 7 p.m. so they cannot say it was sold out. I did not like the attitude either.
Over priced, loud. I am sure the food is good, but taste is not always everything!

Dear Sunny W,

I am so sorry you felt like that at our restaurant. Our decoration is very modest and humble, but our restaurant is immaculate, you can see our open kitchen.

We have a noisy city, there is nothing I can do about it, I am sorry!!! We hope to get one more chance to serve you.

Best wishes,

Gustavo and Family

“Good food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2013

During our stay in Leon we made a visit to this restaurant close to our hospedaje.
We took filete jalapeno and fish a la plancha and were surprised by the nice food.
We sure can recommend the flan as postre, he´s really delicous.
It´s not cheap but you get what you pay for........

“Fantastic!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2013

We ate here 2 nights in a row the food and service was that good! The head chef came out both nights and personally spoke with us and explained exactly what the meals were which was a great help considering alot of it was in spanish and we are from Australia. The beef medallions were amazing, highly recommend this restaurant!

Dear Bradabs,

We are very happy when our clients came back to the Meson Real, that makes us feel that we are doing things right!!!

The tenderloin Medallions are our BEST SELLER and for a reason, they melt in your mouth. I recommend them medium rare, topped with our special fried garlic.

We will came see you when we go to Autralia. Thanks for your review.

“Don't miss it”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2013 via mobile

Superb food and service. Best flan I've ever eaten. Camarrones with garlic and lime were divine. Locally owned - Gustavo grew up just a block away. It's only one block from
La perla hotel - not 1.3 miles like trip advisor shows. Met several folks who ate here both nights they were in town. Wish we'd found it our first night. Superb paella is only $8! Flan is $3 and plenty for 2 people.
