Fantastic margaritas and mojitos like no other, authentic Venezuelan dishes -if you love pork, try the "piernas de baby"- with catchy names and wonderful descriptions AND on Friday and Saturday nights, live Latin music after 8PM that makes you want to get up and dance---- what else can you want?! They also have an outside patio if you prefer "al... More

If you're going to the Arsenal Theatre and it's a warm evening, go to Pedro's for dinner, sit outside and leisurely enjoy your meal since the theatre is only steps away! Delicious food; try ordering different dishes to share but order the chocolate flan for dessert for yourself; you won't want to share this! It's outstanding!

Consistently good, with traditional Venezuelan cuisine and more. Nice cocktails and beer outside on a summer night. Not at all fancy, but a nice time with good food and drink.

The restaurant was recommended by friends and was very nice. We hoped to be sitting outdoors on a beautiful summer night, but we were told that there would be at least a 30 minute wait, even though we had a reservation, which was a disappointment. The indoors was nicely decorated. The food was quite good, but when we asked the... More

Last night we had a family birthday party at this fun restaurant. Our group had 8 adults and 5 children. We were welcomed with smiles, and after the kids took a minute to check out the beautiful fish tank and find Nemo, we were seated. This was the first visit for most of us, and the waitress offered good advice... More

This place has amazing Mojitos! Try something new. We listened to the server to make some recommendations on entrees and were delighted with the choices. The menu tells you what are "favorite appetizer in Venzuela" etc. These were equally delicious. For the quality of the food and portion size -- the price was very reasonable. I had the El Gaucho...

My husband and I had dinner here and enjoyed every minute. Service was outstanding. They make a great vodka martini (a little on the sweeter side) but delicious. Ceviche was spicy and fresh and both of our entrees were generous. We'll be back.

Loved this restaurant! We were in Watertown and came across La Casa de Pedro on OpenTable. I didn't know what to expect, but the food and service were outstanding and quite memorable. Plus, it was a treat to sit outside. Our waiter was fantastic and now I can't remember his name. Started with an A, I think. Food was different,... More
