“absolutely amazing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

Requena city - nothing to see! Meson del Vino - magnificent. I think that nothing changed in Meson del Vino since Franco - waiters included:). They are so old and slow but I've accepted that as very nice touch of history. Local Vino tinto - very very nice.

“A good walk to sort the appetite!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 19, 2012

On a visit to Valencia, we elected to take a day long trip to the surrounding hills. We got off at the station before Requena, El Robollar and walked along the valley sticking to the rural roads and dirt tracks. A little over two hours at a good pace brought us to the front door of Meson del Vino with the appetite properly primed.

This establishment is something from another era. You just ease into the comfortable,warm interior and wait to be treated. We went for the 3 course menu del dia at €17. The highlights of the courses was the Gaspacho Machego - this is a take on a local speciality we game in a rich sauce and mixed with empanada style pancakes. The baby lamb cutlets were also very good. The menu includes bottled water and and a bottle of excellent regional wine - we opted for red. To round off, we ordered café solo and a glass of Magno brandy. The €3 measure was large enough to fuel our train all the way back to Valencia.

“Amazing, time-stood-still place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2012

Lunchtime, menu of the day. When asked for a glass of rose wine - the waiter produced a full bottle of the excellent local wine! this was followed by fresh bread, gazpacho soup, a huge plate of mixed grilled meats + veg, then creme brule, coffee & huge brandy. All for $E18 !

Wonderful ambience, full of bullfighters autographs and even a couple of bulls heads in the bar next door.. This is I imagine as close as you get to genuine. Definitely worth visiting.
