This was our third dinner at the Meson dona Lola. And third time we eat white fish with champange sauce. It has been at every time so good, this time the food was best, also the salad for starter was bueno. The menu of the day was only 14 euros. Wonderfull price for wonderfull meal. Thank you.

Service was chalk and cheese, drinks waiter was couldn't have been more friendly and cheerful, food waiter couldn't have have been more sour face, he only smiled once, when we left a tip. The food on the other hand was very good, excellent and substantial paella - if too salty for our tastes, but very good all the same. I... More

Dear Stuart, Thank you for your comments. Whilst we're delighted you enjoyed the Paella you eat on your recent visit to Meson Doña Lola, we're really sorry the service received was a let down. We'll certainly be looking into the matter and finding out why your waiter wasn't friendlier. We don't want to make excuses but I (Enrique) have been... More

Having heard some recent very poor reports from regular diners, we decided to pay a visit and stick to the a la carte this time. What a shame to see a restaurant that had a great reputation loosing its way. Chef needs to re examine the " warm duck salad" option. The baby leg of lamb was so overcooked the... More

This is a fairly rustic atypical restaurant from the Malaga/ Marbella areas of rural Spain. It was an evening get together for the family as a local favourite restaurant of my sister who lives out there. We had a lovely meal with really nice food and wine and not to expensive either. Lots of local dishes all washed down with... More

Very nice restaurant - well established but I feel it lacks atmosphere. There is nothing wrong with the food or the service it all just feels a bit flat there.

The food was excellent - good quality, tasty and ample portion. Recommend the pork in mustard sauce, veal diana and turbot. Fair selection of wine at reasonable price. Greeted with a... More

Both Restaraunt,s are owned by Enrique who is a most congenial host, both Julio at Enrique,s and Shami at Meson were the perfect hosts.

We now eat in both restaurants but the meson is our favourite. The staff... More
