Service was horrid!! Restaurant was not crowded...two waiters were disinterested and borderline rude. Food was okay...just okay...full of spices ...poorly presented ... Ambiance: very nice surroundings...Spanish theme. There is a sister restaurant in Manhattan that is much more expensive. I feel that because this location is across from the Staten Island Ferry, it is halfheartedly hanging on to a few... More

Wonderful atmosphere (live music on the weekend) and different and interesting food each time I visit. Both tapas and main course dishes, served with wonderful bread, oil, garlic and olives. Great deals for lunch and brunch and marvelous sangria.

You want to surprise your love with a very romantic date? Take him/her to Staten Island with the Staten Island Ferry by light (it's free). Eat at Beso's. It's so delicious and it's not expensive at all! I'm going back for sure! And take the Ferry back by night. I did it, and it was one of the best dates/nights... More

This place is fun, sexy, all the things you want in a restaurant for either a date night or a simple night out with a friend or 3. I've even seen families here with small children. The food is amazing. Try the shrimp/plaintain app! They serve tapas which are super fun to share and be able to try a bunch... More

Walked from the Staten Island ferry. Enjoyed the tapas, especially the hierbas de scallops. The guacamole was good too. Nice service.

I had the opportunity to have lunch here three times in one week while I was in the St. George area of Staten Island and it was excellent. I managed to eat my way through the sandwich specials for these three days and I was very impressed. My favorite overall was the Cubano which was one of the best I've... More

The food and drinks are amazing. Can seem a bit hole-in-the-wall when you think of eating next to the courthouses in Staten Island, but this place alone is worth a trip on the ferry. Tapas are remarkable, and the service is attentive.

This place has DELICIOUS food. Every time I eat there I am never disappointed. I would highly recommend eating there. Make sure you have reservations and an empty stomach. The place is small with a great ambiance and drinks!
