On a gorgeous sunny day, the entire wall of windows was open to the fresh air giving a wonderful al fresco feel to this delightful brunch. Service was friendly and helpful. The fresh juice and piping hot foamy coffees arrived immediately. Everyone in our group...More

If you're tired of the same old brunch of eggs, bacon, toast and potatoes, with fruit on the side, Méson is for you. We ate brunch here last week at a rare round table, which made conversation a breeze. One of the chairs was broken...More

We went there as a group of 6 during Montreal a table event, and left happy customers. The price was decent, and the salmon was really good. The most amazing was the desserts, both were among the best we ever had!

I do like Spanish food but not always in the mood for tapas sized appetizers. Meson was a nice find. We tried the calamari brava, the grilled squid and the flat bread pizza which were all very good and tasty. The paella was also well...More

It's been a while since I ate at Meson, but our meal was great. We had some unusual items as part of a private dinner and I have not had the opportunity to return, sadly. The food and ambience were both superb.

Had supper there Saturday evening with another couple. We started with grilled octopus and calamare. Possibly the best in the city. We followed up with sea bass and salmon. The seasoning was perfect. The wine suggested was amazing. Definitely going back.

We always say that you can judge a restaurant by the quality of its calamari ;) Thank you for voting ours best in the city!!

Not just a tapas place. Appetizers and main dishes can be shared Fresh ingredients, simple and right on. We've found it a dash too pricey. But we will certainly go back next time in Villeray.
