Our Story

Mr. Victor Lopez and his wife Elena Garcia welcomes you at El Meson! This authentic Mexican restaurant located just across the Lachine Canal, in an old brick house in Old Lachine welcomes you in a warm and friendly atmosphere. It is already several years that this Mexican gem serves its secret family recipes. They started timidly years ago in Dorval for those who remember, and it is through satisfied customers that this Mexican restaurant has made a name for itself and today El Meson ranks among the best Latin restaurants in Montreal.

Don't be fooled! You are here to enjoy and savor the fine foods from Mexico. So forget about other so called Mexican restaurants that offer the same Americanized dishes over and over again. Here you'll taste real delicious Mexican specialties such as Carne Asada, the Nopalitos con carne (Cactus with beef), and many more... Indulge yourself, it is not every day you can travel to Mexico for so little. Everything is a matter of imagination, let yourself be surprised, there are so many flavors to discover...

To enjoy the sunny weather, El Meson offers two pretty terraces (front and back) where you can relax with the magnificent view of the beautiful Lachine Canal, an experience that your eyes will never forget. During the winter, once you step inside El Meson, you will never want to leave.

Le personnel est vraiment très sympathique. Malgré un fort achalandage, le service était rapide. Nous avons pris la casserole de poisson & fruits de mer. Un pur délice ! Je recommande ce restaurant familial.

Very nice & authentic Mexican restaurant in Lachine. Quaint decor, delicious dishes, attentive service, smiles all around. Fond memories have been created in the five years since I first came to this place. During the pandemic they started a takeout service & I am excited to get my dinner there tonight. I missed it so much ! Strongly recommended.

Nous étions 5 personnes pour un souper du lundi. En choisissant ce jour de la semaine, nous étions pratiquement certains que le restaurant ne serait pas bondé. Effectivement, il y avait peu de gens, & le service était ma fois excellent! Nous avions commandé des mets différents & avons tous beaucoup aimé notre repas, aux portions généreuses. Comme je suis enceinte, j'ai beaucoup apprécié le fait d'avoir pu prendre un cocktail sans alcool à la moitié du prix de celui alcoolisé, tandis que dernièrement, j'étais allée dans un autre restaurant à Lachine où le prix du cocktail non alcoolisé était le même que celui avec alcool, ce que j'avais trouvé frustrant. Bref, ce fut une très belle expérience au El Meson & cela me donne envie d'y retourner lors d'une prochaine occasion, d'autant plus que l'endroit est vraiment beau & bien décoré.

Cuisine mexicaine telle que l'on devrait la connaître, pour l'apprécier à son authentique valeur. Service courtois & chaleureux. Fourchette de prix tout à fait équitable.
