Tapas / Small Plates
Located just west of downtown Naperville, Mesón Sabika has been serving the community since 1990. Built in 1847, the pristine four-acre estate and beautiful mansion welcome you before you reach the driveway. Whether you dine in one of the mansion’s eight dining rooms decorated in traditional Spanish décor, attend a wedding or corporate event in the pavilion, or sit out back on the patio, the cuisine of Spain and delicious drinks make for an unparalleled dining experience.

For a quiet, romantic dining experience we recommend a week night reservation.The small mansion rooms fill up on the weekends, making for a more lively dining experience.

Our dress code is "proper casual/casual dressy." Gentlemen, we respectfully ask that you cover up your arms (no tank tops). And ladies, we ask that the majority of your midriff is covered (no bandeaux’s). We ask that everyone remove their baseball hats when dining inside the mansion.


Thank you!

Everything was delicious and there was a huge variety. My only complaint is that I wish the food was hotter. Maybe they needed more sternos.
Mimosa was a nice treat and being able to pick a desert was fun.

Really loud conversation. At times could not talk. By the end of the night, we were able to talk. I would request a table in a room with no 12 or 10 tops.

Meson Sabika is 100% the best restaurant in the Western Suburbs. My boyfriend and I brought our friends here to celebrate a birthday. The food was amazing and our server, Steve, was awesome. Had lots of recommendations and even sang some Frank Sinatra for our friends. We will be coming back!

Always a great experience at Meson Sabika. We have had Adrian as our server many times and he is top notch. We have our “go-to” tapas which include the bacon wrapped dates, queso de cabra and la piperana de buey. Can’t quite remember the name of our new favorite dish... but it’s a cold dish with Alaskan King Crab with avocado on crostini and it’s absolutely delicious. Highly recommend!

We have never been disappointed with the food or service. Always a 10. Only thing is this time we were in one of the rooms upstairs and the other patrons were VERY loud. Not the restaurants fault but a little disappointing since my husband and I were celebrating our Anniversary.

Good food, good service. Love the old home feel. Table was a bit too small specially if you have multi plates to share (tapas style) which is their speciality. Paella was really good. Will definitely go back to try other stuff from the menu.

We came for lunch on a weekday and ordered 2 specials - a grilled chicken dish with peppers and potatoes, and a Mahi Mahi dish with spinach and new potatoes. Both were cooked beautifully, tasted great and the right size for lunch. Can't wait to come back again!

Excellent everything...food, staff, ambiance...could not be better. A bit pricey but quality and freshness of the food in part explains the cost. Had several glasses of good wine and two tapas, the shrimp and octopus. Both Devine. We shared the beet salad which was wonderful. The warm breaD is out of this world. Ask for extra to soak up all The wonderful juices. The two of us were satisfied with the amount of food we ordered. $100 plus tip.

Meson Sabika is an amazing place to bring friends and share different Tapas, drink Sangria and more. We have been going here for many years, the food is great and the owner is a great person, he is always giving back to the community at Thanksgiving and other special needs like this event for Red Cross Hurricane relief.
