Nestled in the heart of Villeray, Mesón, a Spanish-inspired restaurant, opened in 2014. However, the story of this restaurant began years earlier.

"We wanted to offer a neighbourhood restaurant to the people of Villeray, to thank them for making us feel so welcome when we opened Tapeo," says Victor Afonso and Sébastien Muniz, two childhood friends who in 2004, opened the tapas bar Tapeo, located two blocks away from Mesón.

With the growing success of their first restaurant, there was no reason for Victor and Sebastian to change this winning formula. The duo then became a quartet with the addition of chef Marie-Fleur St-Pierre, already in charge of the ovens at Tapeo, and Pedro Oliveira, one of the mainstays of the tapas bar.

But by opening Mesón, the four partners faced an interesting challenge: "The regulars at Tapeo tended to compare the two restaurants," says Victor.

We went for dinner for the first time to this restaurant in September 2020. It was one of the best meals and service any of us have had in a very long time. The food was refreshing, fresh, full of flavour and beautifully presented. The staff was unbelievable, polite and very knowledge, and also had a great sense of humor. The calamari and paella were beyond delicious, I was already craving more the next day. It was refreshing to enjoy a fantastic meal with excellent service in such a wonderful atmosphere. We will definitely be going back, over and over.
