We had a great meal here. I had the pulpo ajillo and it was heavenly, I really recommend this dish. The waiter was perfect too, even though the place was near-empty (it was low season) he was present when he needed to be, but never...More

It was number one ranked by travelers, and it was the one with most ratings. This place is a must in El Fuerte. It is not a fancy place, but the food is extraordinary. We enjoyed the famous crawfish here (cauque), with mojo de ajo,...More

This is a good restaurant with very reasonable prices. Diverse menu and helpful staff. Hummingbird feeders provide table side entertainment. In an old remodeled house. Their specialty is bass from the nearby Rio Fuerte, but they have lots of other things.

The Meson has been uniformly excellent for at least 17 years, and is truly the class of El Fuerte. Service is always great, the Sopa Azteca may be the best in the universe, and we always leave happy.

The service was more than good, the food as well. We focused on the local dishes (2 tiles of fish), I would definitely recommend this not only because they'll be fresher, or because they know how to prepare them well, but also because you'll pretty...More
