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!

The atmosphere is lively the food is fun and quite good, and the sangria was great. Our server Diego was very helpful with the menu and wine, attentive and very pleasant. Great tapas option in the suburbs, go with a group and try everything.

We love going to Meson Sabika to enjoy Tapas with friends! The dishes were amazing and the staff was attentive. The only distraction that night was the noise level in the upstairs room where we were dining. It was extremely loud, to the point where we felt we had to yell across the table to be heard.

Beautiful setting in an old mansion. Dined in one of the first floor rooms. A little noise challenged just due to the nature of the room but manageable. Might want to ask for quietest room if you had more than 4 people as it could be conversation challenged.

But it was a beautiful room and the food and service were excellent. Our server was very attentive and quickly explained the menu. There have to be 40 choices across the tapas menu. She suggested 2-3 items per person and that was just right. We did 7 for 3 of us.

Flank steak with blue cheese, onions and potatoes was really full of flavor. Steak had great caramelized char that stood up well to the blue cheese sauce. The potatoes were roasted and sliced. They were at the bottom of the dish and were bathed in the sauce and juice from the steak.

Lamb, beef, and veal meatballs came in a flavorful sauce and were fall apart tender.

Ham Iberico was deeply flavorful. Nice presentation with toast points, a fresh tomato sauce, and olive oil for drizzling

Roasted goat cheese in tomato sauce is a tapas classic and was executed perfectly.

All the tapas were delicious and delivered in pairs at a comfortable pace. Our server helped with selecting a fine bottle of Spanish wine.

Great experience. We will be back.

Had a wonderful dinner outside on the patio under a heater. Food was delicious. Oscar, our server, was excellent, and had plenty of help with the extra staff.
This is definitely "the place to go" for small plates tapas.

Food was good. Too bad they apparently switched up their Sangria to using grape juice instead of a real Sangria recipe

I love going to the brunch at Meson Sabika. However I would like to see more chicken options without any pork on it in their menu. Other than that great place to celebrate special occasions.

A restaurant with great food and a wonderful heart. We went the night Mesón Sabika was contributing 100% of sales to the Red Cross for hurricane Dorian relief. The food was excellent and the fact that it was helping other people made it taste even better. Will definitely be going back to this restaurant for a long time.

As always, the food and service were outstanding. This particular evening was a fundraiser for the Bahama hurricane victims, and the owner, Hossein Jamali is donating 100% of sales (not profits, but sales) to the cause. Fun evening with friends, great cause, and inspirational generosity.

Meson Sabika is a fabulous restaurant! The food is ALWAYS outstanding! Our waiter wasn't very personable, but we realize it was a busy night. We sat outside, and it was very pleasant. We are repeat customers, and will go back often!

I admire a restaurant that not only serves a fantastic Dinner but donates 100% of the proceeds to the AMERICAN RED CROSS for help in the BAHAMAS. As usual we had a GREAT meal and the vibe of the crowd was electrifying, as many people dug into there own pockets to help out the Hurricane Victims. What a great evening with a bunch of good friends!

The Meson Sabika is more expensive than the restaurants we usually go to, but they are very charitable for disaster victims. That is why we went. It was a special treat! I was disappointed that we were told that all the red wines are very dry. It would be nice to have something in between.

this is the first time I have ever had less than excellent service at Meson Sabika. The waiter didn't explain what tapas were even though 2/3 of our party were new to the experience. They food was excellent as usual!
