We have ate at El Meson in Juan Dolio several times in the past three years and everytime it has been a delicious experience. This time I had the salmon penne with cherry sauce and my wife had rice Tinto de calamari, both were tasty with its unique flavor.

I love this place. It is a cute little hide away, with a great outdoor and indoor dining option. The food is great and the wait staff is very professional.

This place is simply great. The food is fresh and the menu always has something new to offer. When it comes to service it's really good too and the owner, Jose Luis, is always around to recommend something or just to chat a little.

Every time we visit Juan Dolio we stop at el meson more than once for lunch or dinner. The food and service are excellent and the owner always stopped by the table to check if everything is OK. You would surely be satisfied with this restaurant.

As a Spanish restaurant in Juan Dolio, this is a great place to get away from the many Italian and pizza places that are close by. Excellent service and both inside/outside dining. Great sangria. Never have had a bad meal here.
