This cafe is right on a very busy main road through Las Americas but we popped in for something to eat and drink. Very fast service but the prices.... We really felt they had overcharged for what we had. Never again

Bar / cafeteria on the main drag. Excellent and extensive snack and light meal menu, plus desserts. Usual suspects include pizza, toasties, baguettes etc.. Also has an ice cream parlour. Drinks good value considering the location. Down-side for us was that they have live footy on TV's, which is fine, but the volume is much too high and you had to shout to be heard, not what you want when trying to have a nice lunch. Live entertainment in the evening, usually a solo act of variable quality. Probably best visited during the daytime when it is good for a sandwich and a pint (if the footy isn't on!).

This was our favourite meeting place for family and friends to enjoy a catch up time over drinks served by friendly staff. The live music entertainment was super. We enjoyed the bowls of popcorn and the courtesy ice cream and waffles served!

El Meson is on the main road in front of Parque Santiago 3 and 4.
We have had drinks and a couple of meals here as it is a great place to people watch. The food is well presented, fresh and tasty.
We will return.
