    El Meson Restaurant has been serving its signature Latin cuisine for more than four decades at their location in the Rice Village shopping district near Houston’s Rice University. Chef Pedro’s menu blends Spanish and Cuban influences, offering a variety of grilled and roasted meats, seafood and tapas such as piquillo peppers stuffed with lamb, raisins and pine nuts, seared foie gras with caramelized apple and pear, and bacon-wrapped dates with Riojano sausage and blue cheese. The menu also features a list of Paellas and rice dishes made with the finest golden thread Saffron from Valencia and the authentic Bomba rice from Calasparra.

    Great Spanish food with a solid Cuban influence, done in a nice atmosphere, polite servers and good quality food. Great variety in the menu. Good wine selection. We will certainly go back.

    Food was wonderful and the service was attentive and warm. The Cuttle fish ink paella was delicious. Also, Thanks for participating in Houston Restaurant Week. Look forward to our next visit to try more tapas!

    The place was nice and quiet, my wife wanted something mild and flavorful. We ordered cheese enchilada and taco with chili. The taco was OK, the greens were good. Aguacate was fresh. The service was great. The rice was a bit dry for our taste. But the biggest sin was the cheese in the enchilada. It was . . . American Cheese? There are plenty of cheeses out there, but American Cheese has no place in a cheese enchilada. My recommendation is to use a quality Mexican style cheeses to make those enchiladas pop! And add a smidge more water to the rice.

    The food was fine. The best of all was the bread. We ordered a seafood rice and actually hoped it would be better, I would not order it again. The waiters' attention was very bad, the one who came to charge us was a slightly rude person.
