Meet the owner

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.

Simply the best restaurant experience I have had this year in the city. Great atmosphere, excellent food (not a single misstep from the bread and olives right through to the coffee), and a knowledgeable, friendly, ultra efficient staff (which is appreciated these days more than ever before). My good friend and I will definitely return soon with our wives. The only problem with the restaurant is parking. Take an Uber.

Food very good to excellent, especially the fries and grilled octopus. Good value, too Service was a bit uneven. It was frustrating to see two light, young Jerez, a fino and a manzanilla, on the list - *exactly* what I wanted to drink with this food - but be offerers a (completely different: dark, sweet) cream sherry in place of the fino, then after I refused it and requested the manzanilla instead, served a glass of that same cream sherry but told it was the manzanilla. Eventually they did the right thing and replaced it with a different wine; and the service also became friendlier after that, probably because there were fewer customers remaining and they could relax a bit. Overall, the food and value was good enough to recommend this place despite the disappointments about wine and service. The next night I paid twice as much at an Italian restaurant, for a meal that wasn't as good.

I went with a group of friends (first time visit) and opted for a menu tasting. The food was delicious and the service was excellent! The waiter was super friendly and always paid attention to our needs. He recommended great bottles of wines and also inquired about our preferred taste to ensure the tasting menu was tailored to our liking. The vibe was great and the open concept was perfect for a hot weather day. I definitely recommend the place and will go back and try the brunch menu.
