Table for two!

3 tapas (guacamole, pan y cerdo, lamb chops)1 entree (bistec Cubano) and dessert ( papadillos) made us very happy! We can't pick a favorite because everything was DELICIOUS and great service! Karen was attentive and knowledgable about all menu items. Thanks for a memorable night.

Beso, I my opinion, is one of the best restaurants on Staten Island. It offers delicious food and good drinks; has nice and relaxing atmosphere; staff is very friendly and accommodating. Restaurant is well decorated. We had dinner there on the couple of occasions and definitely will come back again.

We went as four couples for a holiday dinner. Make resavations or you will wait a long time. We had made ours. Food is great from tapas to the dinners. Great price and great times with friends. Love this place.

Went there with my family for my birthday! I love Spanish food and tapas are great cause you can try many things without pigging out. Drinks were good, food delucious! I loved skirt steak- my favorite! Sangria was good too. A little expensive, but definately worth it!

A dinner group I belong to dine at various restaurants in the area. We enjoyed the evening we had a Beso. The food was good and the service was good as well.

Made it a point to drive through Staten Island before heading back to Jersey to dine at Beso. Had a dinner here on a Saturday night. We lucked out & found parking directly across from the restaurant. The red sangria is delicious & the Paella was equally enjoyable. Great place in a nice location for Tapas & Spanish food. The... More

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.
