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.

Too noisy. I practically had to scream in order to be heard. Not only was the music too loud, but we would have expected Spanish music in a Spanish restaurant. Too bad because the food was good but the setting was bad.

Always an excellent meal with fantastic service. Pedro and Andy are awesome and the rest of the crew also compliments the experience. My reco; tell them your allergies and dislikes and let them take care of the food and wine pairing. I would also let them pick desert ... they usually get it right. Thanks

- The waiter did not explain the menu because he said we already checked it on INSTAGRAM. - The waiter was always looking elsewhere while talking to us. - The food is that tasty. My paella was dry and lacked of taste. - Entree of calamaris was saggy - the octopus entree was really oily and lacked off taste - Ended up spending 85$ but I don't think it was worth it

The food and service was absolutely amazing. There is a great ambiance at this restaurant. During the Summer, on a beautiful night - all of the windows are open, and you can enjoy the outdoors while still sitting inside. It’s not too loud, but has a great buzz and vibe. The Octopus, the asparagus salad and the ceviche were all amazing. The real star was the lobster rice - it was spectacular. It had great, rich flavour.

As usual, Pedro and the team are absolutely fabulous. My recommendation: don’t order anything ... just tell the amazing team what you are allergic to, don’t want and any other restrictions you have ... you will not be disappointed. They know their menu and will create something fantastic for you. This is how we’ve discovered this place and we still do that after all there years. Merci à toute l’équipe de Mesón.
