Having booked to come back from our visit in January, we were a little disappointed, the Stroganoff was not prepared at the table as before and the meat was a little tough. I ordered the Turbot which was hacked in front of me by an unskilled waiter, the Restaraunt was very empty, maybe an indication of the current standards and... More

Thank you for taking the time to write a review of your recent meal at the Meson, I'm just so sorry that on this occasion we let you down with the food and service. Regarding the Stroganoff, we didn't make this at the table because the rechaud used to cook this was broken and we haven't had a chance to... More

We have been coming to this part of the coast for around 30 years and I can't believe that we have never eaten here before. We had the 14 euro set menu. There was a 1.50 cover charge but for that we had a half glass of pink cava, a warm roll served with both fresh butter and garlic butter.... More

Service was chalk and cheese, drinks waiter was couldn't have been more friendly and cheerful, food waiter couldn't have have been more sour face, he only smiled once, when we left a tip. The food on the other hand was very good, excellent and substantial paella - if too salty for our tastes, but very good all the same. I... More

Dear Stuart, Thank you for your comments. Whilst we're delighted you enjoyed the Paella you eat on your recent visit to Meson Doña Lola, we're really sorry the service received was a let down. We'll certainly be looking into the matter and finding out why your waiter wasn't friendlier. We don't want to make excuses but I (Enrique) have been... More

Having heard some recent very poor reports from regular diners, we decided to pay a visit and stick to the a la carte this time. What a shame to see a restaurant that had a great reputation loosing its way. Chef needs to re examine the " warm duck salad" option. The baby leg of lamb was so overcooked the... More

This is a fairly rustic atypical restaurant from the Malaga/ Marbella areas of rural Spain. It was an evening get together for the family as a local favourite restaurant of my sister who lives out there. We had a lovely meal with really nice food and wine and not to expensive either. Lots of local dishes all washed down with... More

Very nice restaurant - well established but I feel it lacks atmosphere. There is nothing wrong with the food or the service it all just feels a bit flat there.

Went twice to Meson Dona Lola during a week's holiday (also went to one of the other nearby restaurants which was ok, but well short of experience at MDL).
