I'd give this place a '5' except I reserve that for 'above expectations' - I expected a really nice meal here, and got it! We were one of the early diners and were seated where we chose - it was warm, so by the patio door was good. Our host had limited English, but we communicated OK. Service was good,... More

Small and cozy restaurant, making you feel like having dinner at home .... focus is on seafood and fish, which is very well prepared and served by very attentive staff. Good value.

We hadn't done a reservation because it was Wednesday and thought it wasn't necessary. The restaurant was fully booked but all the same the waiter gave us a table and managed to serve everyone. It is a small house and has a very cozy atmosphere. We were hungry and didn't know whether to ask for an appetizer plus two dishes.... More

Patagonian hospitality in the heart of Santiago, authentic outdoor and indoor seating, beautiful lamb, try the meat cuts straight from the fire, classic on the menu, and the degustation desert menu offer tasting of most deserts. The portions are big!

Ocho cenas con tres amigas diferentes. Cada vez perfecta! What makes el Meson one of my favourite restaurants is the always recognised welcome, without raised eyebrows, and the relatively quiet dining experience in well decorated surroundings. Ever helpful with food and wine choices allied to excellently prepared meals with a Patagonian twist, el Meson sort of epitomises all that's good... More

we had dinner on a Friday night and booked a table at 21h. The place was not to crowded when we arrived. Our waitress arrived immediately at the table and asked something. We could not understand any word and I asked if she could speak English and asked 'drinks? '. She ran away to get somebody who could speak English.... More

Small cozy restaurant. The appetizers are great and the main seafood courses are fresh. The paejas are big enough for 2 or even 3 people.
