“Really fresh, tasty Mexican food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2012

I go here for lunch frequently and the food is consistently tasty and fresh. From the salsa to the guacamole, everything is good. The wait staff is knowledgeable and friendly, the atmosphere is comfortable, the food is good. There's really nothing bad to say about this restaurant. The free churros and worry dolls they give you on the way out are nice touches.

If you want good Mexican, you can't go wrong with Besito.

“Excellent!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2012

Great atmosphere, beautiful dining room, and the food is always excellent. Only drawback to this place is that the drinks are overpriced and rather skimpy.

“Woo Hoo! Arriba!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2012

Walked into this beautifully decorated place and definitely felt that warm vibe. Was seated right away and ordered the guacamole...very good beginning! I am very familiar with "Mexican food" but have never been to a place where the cook uses multiple ingredients to create very traditional dishes other than the typical taco, burrito, or enchilada. Don't get me wrong they're all good but is only the very tip of the iceberg when it comes to Mexican cuisine.

My very first dish was impeccable! My first bite and I was hooked! I found myself here a week later and ordered another dish which was equally amazing!

Beautiful place for romantic dinners, dates, anniversaries or a drink at their bar!

Best Mexican restaurant on LI by far. Excellent food, excellent service and a wonderful atmosphere. It is a great place to dine for couples, friends and even families to dine and be treated to an attentive staff and delicious food.

“Favorite”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2012

I love Besito ! The food is delicious The drinks are great . You must try the signature Margarita. Besito is one of the prettiest restaurants in the Roslyn area. The bar is good to hang and have a light dinner.
