“Yes, walk over to El Meson”
Reviewed March 22, 2012

We enjoyed our dinner here. My husband had beef prepared in the Dominican style (a la criolla) and fried plantain chips (tostones). I had red snapper (chillo). Both dishes were served with local vegetables. Service was excellent and the food was delicious.

“Excellent seafood in Juan Dolio!”
Reviewed March 11, 2012

We had the shrimp and grilled snapper, both excellently done, fresh and tasteful. Cocktail was superb - pina colada and sangria. Excellent value for money and the service was fully satisfactory. Must go when in Juan Dolio..

“My favorite juan dolio restaurant!”
Reviewed November 29, 2011

The snapper a la parilla is super delicious and the atmosphere is laid back. You leave feeling full with a good qualitu meal. The fish is perfectly cooked. The margaritas are the best in juan dolio.

“El Meson - Best Restaurant on Carretera Nueva in Juan Dolio”
Reviewed May 3, 2011

First or all, it's El Meson, not Le Meson.

Very friendly and helpful service, a large and varied menu (we stuck mostly to seafood), and a comfortable setting, had us dining here three of our seven nights at nearby Costa del Sol.

The seafood paella was especially good, as was the asopao de camarones (a hearty shrimp & rice soup). Nice wine list.

Bravo!
