They have amazing tapas and one of my favorite dishes is shrimps wrapped in plantains with yellow chorizo. If you are taking the ferry over to SI walk over to Besos for a drink- you... More

Tapas were excellent. I love the shrimp wrapped in plantains. The red sangria was one of the best I tested. A very cool place to go and enjoy great food.

Great food and sangria. Wonderful atmosphere and fantastic service. This is one of my favorite restaurants. Parking is very hard. It's right across the street from the Staten Island Ferry. I would go every week if there was a parking lot.

We Had a very good time at Beso. I had reserved from MTL and they gave us a nice table near the window. Food was great, service was quick and efficient. They just treated very well. On top, Spanish coffee was on the house. Thank you for this wonderful evening

We went there for lunch while waiting for a ferry back to NYC. The lunch offerings they had surprisingly seemed more expensive than the regular menu. Prices in general are, however, okay. We ended up ordering two burgers. Unfortenately, they were not at all medium-rare (as ordered) and the fries were not fried enough and thus tender. Also, we didn't... More

For 9/11 we took the Staten Island Ferry from Manhattan for good views of the Trade Centre twin blue beams, and for dinner at Beso. Small warm interior with good seating. Tapas leaning menu but we decided on individual dinners. Waiter brought fresh bread with olives and garlic cloves in olive oil. All a great start to dinner. The wine... More

We went to Beso for a birthday dinner. All I can say is WOW, the food was out of this world. The toppers are awesome, including the lamb chops which were the best I ever ate in my life. Staff was great, atmosphere wonderful, food a little pricey, however you get what you pay for, and it is worth every... More

If you took the boat to Staten Island, don't rush for the boat back - stop here for lunch. Great food!
