Oxtail and lamb were recommended and apparently they have won a golden plate award. But I felt it was barely decent. It is also not that cheap.

Hello! Thanks for the comment. The moment you eat it   The official chef of the restaurant was in Marbella attending a master class to enrich your work. In the kitchen was his assistant. You could at the time of eating say something to the manager to highlight your expectations. a greeting   At your service More

Good food, had an English menu with varied selection. Tapas brought out as in all places in this area. We had beer and wine 2 main meals and the bill was less than 28 Euros.

Eating well is always a profound surprise. Normally the second time you eat at a restaurant something falls short. El Meson has the rigor that all fine restaurants have. Fresh quality produce, heart and talent in the kitchen and friendly, attentive service. Local wines, home stews, local vegetables, grilled beef, fresh fish. What more can one ask for?

Kind people and good service. Been eating here several times. Most of it is well cooked and with daily variations at the menu. All in all good!

I have gone to El Meson a dozen times over the last few years. It's a 30 drive from Granada. The landscape all the way into Sierra Nevada is worth seeing. I've always received the same friendly service, delicious home cooking and inexpensive prices. I especially recommend the soups and stews, grilled meats and house desserts. Don't miss it.

We had breakfast and dinner in La Taberna. In both occasions we were happily surprised by the tapas that were served with the drinks. Not a small bite but a full plate of tasteful tapas. No charge! The food is basic, pure and of good quality. Friendly service.

After being ripped off in Barcelona for 4 days, it was a pleasure to make an order via Carlos. We actually ordered too much but almost finished it all. His seafood was so tasty and his seafood paella is the best I have had. Two huge Paella with a bottle of drink and a salad - €78.50 Inc tax. Thoroughly... More

We stayed at the Cuevas Almagruz on a cold , rainy night in early April and drove 5 minutes into Purullena to pick up food. The owner was very helpful and patient as I worked with my limited Spanish to pick out food. We had a drink and were served a free tapa as well. We got one pork dish... More
