Beso is a relaxing and romantic Spanish restaurant. The meals are served with good portions. Savor authentic Spanish cuisine where the chef uses real saffron on some dishes. Great side dishes accompany the main courses. There is a good variety of tapas. Easily accessible from Brooklyn and Manhattan. When you receive the bill, you will be pleasantly surprised.

I absolutely love this place! The ambiance is relaxing, laid back with a rustic Spanish deco. It's not such a large room so it's not too noisy. The food is delicious, the sangria tasted authentic and mostly everything is reasonably priced. I would recommend dinning there with family or as a couple.

Exotic and cosy athmosphere. The food was excellent. Sangria and Margarita on rocks were delicious. Whatever you order, you won't be disappointed. I would highly recommend this place if you are visiting Staten Island New York.

My wife and I dined here this past weekend. We ordered 6 tappas which was plently of food. The service, atmosphere, and dishes were all very good and reasonably priced. They do not take reservations and the wait was about 30 minutes. There is also no valet parking and it can be a challenge to find a spot close if... More

My first time to Staten Island, one of the employees at the Staten Island Burrough Hall recommended that we try this restaurant. The inside of the place was very rustic yet elegant. My friend and I decided to try a couple of the Tapas: rellendo de gambas (amazing!); Empanada de res (very good); Chicken Quesadillas (Simply Awesome); and the Tropical... More

I came here years ago, when it was a local bar. A small restaurant with a wonderful menu. My wife and I shared the Homemade Guacamole (Yumm!!) and I had the Seafood Avocado (wonderful). I would definitely come again, though it was a bit loud this time, with 1 or 2 big parties going on inside this small dining area.

First, I can't overstate just how friendly the staff here was! Very helpful and quick with suggestions. We didn't feel rushed and they anticipated just about everything, so we didn't have to ask for anything. The only negative was that some of our dishes were very tasty and some were disappointing. The members in our group that ordered steak or... More

Best Spanish food in NYC. Worth the trip to Staten Island. Walk from the ferry, right off of bay street.The restaurant is small so reservations are necessary. The food and service is outstanding. Highly recommend!!

I guess like many tourists, we took the Staten Island ferry from Manhattan to Staten Island as it's free and gives you a good view of the Statue of Liberty on your way. Of course, you can just turn right around and go straight back, but we decided to time things to eat lunch and found this place not too... More
