    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 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 place set itself apart from the other hundreds places that claim to be Cuban or Spanish food in the Houston area. The food is excellent. With the right seasoning and very well made. Home made taste. If u want to experience real Cuban or Spanish food come here. One of the best paellas, the Spanish tortilla is great. The place is quiet with some music, the waiters are courteous and quick to serve. Overall is a great experience for a family Saturday or Sunday lunch or for a date

    The menu is extensive with plenty of variety. I choose tapas, the scallops and squid where amazing. Can't wait to visit again and try something different. I wanted the Paella but it was a business lunch and I didn't want to pig out. The small patio is COVID friendly with plenty of fresh air.

    Having lived in Spain for a year while in college, I consider myself a bit of an expert in tapas. El Meson has a good variety of dishes and the restaurant atmosphere is very pleasant. I will say that it is a little pricey for tapas.

    We found this superb place by chance. My wife and I like to try new places as often as possible and I can easily say this will become a regular rotation for us. The Sea Scallops tapas is a must but they only come with two an order. For entrees, everything is delicious but the Pallomia Sirloin steak is one of the best options on the menu. If you're feeling need for sweets, get the tree leches and enjoy!!!

    The best Spanish, Cuban, and Tex-Mex cuisine around. The plantains are unbelievable, and the shrimp and pork are the best I’ve ever had. Great experience!
