El Meson Suizo Restaurant

El Mesón Suizo Restaurant is a great place to visit for lunch or dinner.  It is located on the PanAmerican highway, just past the turn-off to El Valle.  Our dinner last night at El Mesón Suizo was excelente.  The Rosti (grated potato) with mushrooms and Swiss Cheese is something you must try.  The flavors in this dish keep you coming back for more.

We were very pleased with our meal at El Mesón Suizo.  The Mesón Suizo style soup had a delicate flavor that subtly changed when you mixed in the cream & tomato puree that was floating on top.  The beers we tried had very distinctive flavors and were pleasing to the palate.
We will be back real soon to try the Wiener Schnitzel and of course the Rosti
