Although the restaurant is rather small, it is cozy, warm and the food is exceptional. The sangria is also superb. Love their marinated olives and I have never ordered anything in this restaurant that I did not like. Parking can be challenge, but definitely worth it.

My husband and I have been going here for years for special occasions. We love the tapas(small plates). It's a great way to taste a variety on the menu with overspending and overeating. Please try the lamb chops if visit. Delicious!

Had tickets to see a show at the St. George Theatre on Saturday and stopped in with our friends for dinner. Since they don't take reservations for less than 5 people, we did not have one; restaurant was very crowded, so we ate at the bar. The food was outstanding! Two of us had the paella and two of us...

This was a recommendation from Apple Maps after we arrived in Staten Island. Very tasty Spanish/Mexican food Tapas style, which meant that the portions were manageable. Very enjoyable meal!

Didn't know what to expect. I left very satisfied. I had Fixed Prix lunch- Bloody Mary, Chicken soup- quite a small serve, Grilled salmon, cake. We also ordered Grilled lamb chops- delicious, and medium rare was just so tender. Easy walk from the Staten Island ferry terminal.

My shirt was all white when I went to Beso for dinner last week with friends who live in Staten Island and two other couples. The bus boy was clearing our table and accidentally knocked an entire glass of red wine on my white shirt. The front of my dry clean only white shirt was covered in wine, my pants... More

I've been going there for years. Delicious and inventive! The best grilled lamb chops ever! And that's just the beginning...All the tapas are quite flavorful. Make sure you get pitcher of Sangria to compliment your tapas. If you have room for dessert get the Sopapillas. Fried tortillas with Marconi almonds vanilla ice cream and caramel like dulcet de leche sauce.

If you're looking for a great place on the island, this is it. This is my absolute favorite local restaurant. The drinks are great the food is great and the staff is great. I have been here multiple times and have yet to have any problems. The one negative is the wait but it is expected for a place that... More

After visiting the attractions at Snug Harbor on Staten Island, we walked about a quarter mile to this restaurant on the water for lunch. They had several specials-- my friend had the shrimp pasta; I had the salmon wrap. Its a very pleasant restaurant with great views of the water and skyline. The prices are reasonable and the portions are... More

This is part of the changing scene near the Staten Island ferry. Rather classy and good level of food at decent prices. Worth walking to after they make you get off the ferry
