from reviews

    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.

    El Meson’s award winning wine list focuses on the wines from Spain to pair with its Spanish inspired menu, as well as outstanding wines from California and other regions from around the world. El Meson is recognized by Wine Spectator Magazine as one of the top restaurants in the United States to focus on Spanish wines and is the recipient of the Best of Aw

    This restaurant had a great feel, very relaxed. If you're ordering rounds of tapas, be sure to budget in about 2 hours and $60/person. The service was a smidge slow, but that was appreciated since we were taking our time. Each of the 7 small plates were delightful! At this point I don't think you can order wrong here. I'll definitely go back.

    Food is always delicious and fresh! The servers are always so kind and attentive! The owner is always friendly and visits everyone at their table! Great lunch menu along with their dinner menu! It's definitely a place to eat Authentic Cuban and Spaniard cuisines!

    I used to really like this place. I took my in-laws here and it was very disappointing. The service was slow. One of the entrees came out cold. My dish was apparently sold out so they chose an alternative entree without consulting me. I spoke with the owner to discuss my dissatisfaction. He agreed the dishes shouldn't be cold and they shouldn't substitute a dish without asking. With regard to the slow service he decided to insult me and tell me that he didn't run a fast food restaurant. Unfortunately we will not be going back, and I am livid with his response. He clearly doesn't have the passion for this establishment that he once had.

    Family restaurant, home cooking. Great staff, and they have great wine knowledge without being snooty. Atmosphere is genuine Cuban and you can have a conversation.

    The food was cold. Supposedly, they make the paella right then and serve it, but our paella was cold. It didn’t taste like a paella either, as it was spicy. The palomilla had nothing to do with Cuban spice. The salmon was cold, and when it came back after being sent to be heated up, it came out still cold. When they brought out the salad, they didn’t even explain the dressing or what was in it. The appetizers were the only good thing. Our server was apparently mad at something, or someone, and treated us badly because of it. He didn’t want to take our order, and almost left before we had finished ordering. All in all, it was a bad experience. We decided not to stay for dessert.

    Your next favorite dish; Medallones. #nofilterneeded #mmm #elmesonhouston #healthyfood #ketominusthepotatoes 😂
