Not too bad. We ordered the set lunch and we got two tapas with two main dishes. The creamy mushroom tapas was very good and went very well with the bread. However the fish burger I ordered was mediocre- hard and didn’t taste too fresh....Overall it was a good experience, staffs were very attentive and friendly too!More

Decent food and place. Looks better after revamping / renovation. Food - only had the iberico ham and the grade is poor. Maybe that’s why it’s not too expensive. Service was alright. Happy hour deals are not cheap, plenty of other more attractive places in...town..More

Heaven could be a good pork burger with cheese and crispy bacon. Plus a cool beer. Our second visit - to see if we could get a pork burger which met with our expectations and lived up to our first time experience. Not disappointed at...all - well cooked burger, succulent pork meat, bacon just right for crispiness. Plus good service and very fair prices Happiness oink oinkMore

Our favourite bar and restaurant in KL. Great for hosting large parties and always taken care of by Shahin. Try the pork burger!

We used to live nearby & visited periodically, always delicious. Now we relocated to Sarawak where no tapas can be found..... makes our return visits to Bangsar & El Meson all the more special! Sad to see that they've reduced the tapas selection a little,...no more Potatas Bravas, which is a staple for any decent tapas place. But what remains is still deciduous, especially the mushrooms in cream & truffle! Thanks to Shahim who looked after us splendidly, even remembering us from previous visits. Bangsar is in the midst of a resurgence, but El Meson was there before & will remain strong. Good food & service countsMore

With a mix of cultures in Malaysia it is never difficult to find a good meal and whilst my initial thoughts of a Spanish restaurant option were not positive in comparison to everything else on offer, I have to say it was a great meal...and I would highly recommend. Very attentive service, we enjoyed a relaxed meal and ordered tapas and then main meals a little later to enjoy an experience that wasn’t rushed. From the tapas selection of carpaccio, calamari and chorizo, the latter was my favourite. We then shared the rib eye special for 2 and ordered the mushroom tapas dish on the side which was a really good accompaniment. Our medium rare choice was executed to perfection and the steak had a beautiful char grilled flavour on the outside whilst being incredibly succulent. No room for dessert unfortunately and although we only had 2 draught beers, the bill was a little more expensive than other dining options, however the taste and quality made it worth the money.More

Returned to El Meson after a long spell. It was good to be back and to meet Prem Kumar ( manager ) and Selva ( Asst Manager ) who took the trouble to stop by and say hello to us. My wife and I wanted...to try the Seafood Paella and so decided to order just two tapas as starters. We had a Prawn Gambas which was excellent and then we also had a Chorizo with Potatoes. The Chorizo sausage was spicy and juicy and tasted heavenly. We also had some small slices of warm bread to dip in the olive oil ( with balsamic vinegar ) The servings of the tapas were quite generous. The prawns were medium in size and fresh. The seafood paella was done quite nicely. However, I would have liked a little less olive oil in them. We also had a squeeze of not one but two slices of lemons and this was just what was needed to enjoy the paella. The service by the staff was courteous, friendly and prompt. El Meson continues to maintain a high standard. The presence of the two long standing managers must have had a positive effect. Will be returning to El Meson sometime soon.More

We ordered the Parlls r  Mariscos which was ok but nothing special. The  Ensalada de espinacas was very good. The ambience is cosy and the service is great. Prices are reasonable.

The food is really delicious and tasty it’s full of flavour on every bite this place is a must try. The dessert is all home made and the chocolate lava cake really is a lava with warm chocolate pouring out.
