My husband and I tried Meson Sabika in the search for great tapas that wouldn't require us driving all the way downtown. This place did not disappoint! The grounds are gorgeous: a building that is clearly used for private parties was all dressed up for what appeared to be a corporate event. They have a private lot, that I'd imagine could easily hold all the cars, if there isn't a private event going on (I could see there potentially being a parking issue if both spaces are filled with diners). The restaurant itself has all sorts of cozy little tables spread throughout the beautiful mansion. We were dressed in date clothes, and felt dressed just right. Tapas are meant to be fun, so the whole experienced is relaxed, but still elegant.
We had an earlier reservation (5:30), so when we arrived, there weren't too many folks there yet. We were sat at a sweet little table near the window overlooking the garden patio. Because we were there so early, it was serene and easy to converse: I suspect that as the evening carries on and gets more crowded, it probably gets pretty noisy (but hey, it's tapas: it's part of the fun, right?). Our server was super-friendly and did a nice job of guiding us through the extensive and appetizing menu. A note: make sure to ask for the sangrias, since they are on a different menu than the rest of the items. They have a wide variety of hot and cold tapas, and they serve it all with some marinated olives and bread-and-butter. The Valenciana Pallella was delicious: each of the proteins were treated with great care, and the dish itself is gorgeous. Make sure to leave room for dessert, as their choices are worth saving some appetite space for! We were especially enamored with the Pear almond cake.
As far as prices, go, I'd imagine you could enjoy a lovely meal inexpensively, or you could go pretty much hog-wild, depending on how much you order: we ate our absolute fill complete with a whole shared pitcher of sangria, cold and hot tapas and desserts with coffee all for under $100. We hope to try a brunch here. We'd come back for sure.
