Gran Canaria's top tasting restaurant
Taste Mesón owners Anders and Boel have taken their successful formula from the laid back Arguineguín Taste Mesón and brought it to the heart of Playa del Inglés. The elegant new restaurant, with outdoor terrace and interior seating, is nicely done and the perfect backdrop to Taste Mesón's friendly, efficient service.
We are happy to report that the food at the Playa del Inglés venue is just as tasty and we expect this restaurant to become a feature of the Playa del Inglés dining scene.
By the way, we've organised a 20% discount for all Gran Canaria Info readers. See below!
Over 400 wines and 70 champagnes by the glass
Thanks to the wonders of technology, Taste Mesón offers over 400 wines and 70 champagnes by the glass. It also offers a pairing service where you get the perfect wine for each dish you choose off the tasting menu. Even the water is optimised with in-house filtering and chilling.
What exactly is a tasting restaurant?
Why go to a good restaurant and poder one big dish and one kind of wine when you can order several excellent dishes in tasting-size portions and have a different glass of wine with each one?
That's the simple concept behind Taste Mesón and it's a good one; sit down in an informal setting and try several top notch dishes in small portions, each one paired with the ideal wine.
Of the dishes we've tried, the slow-roasted pork with cauliflower mash and parmesan crisp is out of this world; made with a local heritage breed of pig it is probably the tastiest bit of meat that we've ever tried.
You also have to try the fish taco!
Lex says: If meat isn't your thing, the goat cheese and roast beetroot dish is excellent, as are the mushroom croquettes.
Where is Taste Mesón in Playa del Inglés
Taste Mesón Playa del Inglés is at Avenida Tirajana 17 in the Edificio Barbados. It's within walking distance of all the main nightlife areas of Playa del Inglés like the Yumbo, Kasbah and the many bars along Avenida Tirajana.
Why you should eat (and drink) at Taste Mesón
Because the food really is a cut above what you get in almost all other south Gran Canaria restaurants and the international wine selection is probably the best anywhere in Spain.
It's an excellent spot for a romatic meal and also a great restaurant to visit with friends because the range of food and wine gives you plenty to talk about.
