The decor is fun and the drinks were good - although beware of the price of the "special" drinks. No price on the menu & the margarita was $16 (and VERY small for the price). I think the appetizer would have been better if not obviously previously frozen, as the inside was still cold. The chicken quesadilla was bland at... More

Since I had worked in the Arsenal last year, I had been to this restaurant a number of times and also had a business meeting there. All was fine, food was good and my business associate and I spent about $100 and really enjoyed the entree. Had been REALLY wanting to go back for a similar meal. After being in... More

We've been there many times and absolutely love it. Great experience! We sat at this bar and had an appetizer as we were too early for our reservation. The bartender was attentive and made a good margarita. The $25 margarita is absolutely worth it! Then we moved to our table and had a great waiter and delicious dinner. The food... More

Food is great! Salmon, short ribs, osso bucco and cod were delicious. Lotta food. Drinks were refreshing and fruity. The festive and colorful ambience made our visit even better!

We were there for Mother's Day and loved the atmosphere, food and drinks. We sat at the bar and ordered tappas and drinks. Since there were 5 of us, we each ordered something different and had a taste of everything. We had the Plantains, Chicken and Chorizo, Calmari and Nachos! We loved everything and I highly recommend the Chicken and... More

Wonderful food. They serve a variety of authentic plates from Central and South America. The taste is the real deal. The atmosphere is festive with bright colorful decor and Latin music playing overhead. Would highly recommend.

Venezualan food? Well, just go in for lunch and buy that special. Don't think too much. Enjoy. For evening, order a margarita. Not at the low end, but cost-effective. On weekends, reserve a table!

I think this is one of the best places to eat in Watertown - but it's a little pricey, but you get what you pay for. Food is very good, nice presentation, and nice selection.

The menu is extensive and filled with authentic Latin American/Caribbean flavors. I have been there twice with a large group both times, so I was able to taste different things, all excellent. Chef Pedro is passionate about his restaurant and food and even came out and made a few suggestions. He was a joy to talk to. I also had... More

Casa de Pedro's is my favorite spot in Watertown for several reasons. I have been going to Pedro's since he had a small place in Watertown Square. It is now located in a much larger space in the Arsenal complex. Either place the food has been and always is fantastic. Pedro is Venezuelan and the food is Venezuelan home family... More
