“If you like frozen food...”
Reviewed November 15, 2013 via mobile

I cannot believe, after experiencing wonderfully authentic comida dominicana throughout the country, that Meson can exist. It's actually awful. The habichuelas tasted worse than out of a can. The empanada was from the freezer case at La Sirena. The mains were brought cold. All with service for which Dominicans are not known: cold, limp, lifeless. Definitely not recommended.

“so so”
Reviewed October 7, 2013

I have dined here on two occasions. After suffering through an awful dish of crab with laden with pieces of shell , I was persuaded to return and had a pedestrian steak. The décor and service are lackluster .

“Great dominican plates”
Reviewed September 2, 2013

If you want to try very good typical Dominican plates in one of the best atmosphere of the city you have to come to this restaurant. Located in the famous colonial zone of santo domingo.

“Great Dominican Food”
Reviewed August 31, 2013

We found this restaurant from watching Anthony Bourdain's episode about the Dominican Republic. Extensive menu in 3 languages. A great place for more authentic Dominican food, located in the Zona Colonial.
