Brought guests here who don't get too much exposure to Mexican cuisine. This restaurant did not disappoint! The fish taco was a little soggy so definitely not something one could eat while standing which is what it was designed for. The entrees were delicious. The...More

Tasty and unusual Mexican fare but small portions (no left overs here). The early bird special is the way to go ($22 for 3 courses). Otherwise it's pricey for Mexican, but not for the area. The back alley entrance made it feel like you were...More

The location of Casa Romero is classically Back Bay. The restaurant is tucked in a little alley that's easiest to find if you just let your smartphone navigate you. The restaurant is small and charming with waiters who are experienced and very helpful. The dishes...More

Boston is not a city where you would expect to find great Mexican food. Scratch that idea when you go to Casa Romero. It's a small restaurant down an alley off of Gloucester Street in the Back Bay but well worth the trek. The Mexican...More

Tucked in off an alley, this quaint basement-level eatery featured winding paths and tight staircases decorated with traditional Spanish decor. The service was very good, as was the food (be sure to order the guacamole!). I have to rave about their beverages - their margaritas...More

My wife grew up in Texas and lived on Mexican food. There are not many great Mexican restaurants in immediate Boston except Casa Romero, Ole and Zocalo. Casa Romero is a hidden gem and fun for adult family or romantic night out. Great guacamole and...More

Wander around this quintessential neighborhood in the
heart of Boston for high-end shops, restaurants, and
the feeling of city bustle. Its most identifiable
skyscrapers, the Prudential Center and John Hancock
Tower, are highlights of the city skyline. Visit
Newbury street to explore unique and trendy boutiques
– as well as every other kind of store imaginable –
all housed in beautiful brownstone buildings. In nice
