Description: Besito, translated as little kiss, strives to delight guests with the warmth of a private hacienda offering thoughtful details and cuisine. Besito was rated "excellent" by the New York Times with decor that embraces all the flavors and festivity of Mexican cuisine. Enjoy fresh, table-side guacamole and over 75 tequilas all straight from Mexico. Enjoy our amazing Sunday Brunch the best on Long Island and our exceptional outdooring dining / patio seating in the summer!

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”
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.

“Pretty good”
Reviewed August 26, 2012

It was decent Mexican food but nothing special. We ate outside but the service was ok. I would prefer PocoLoco which is almost across the street

“Our favorite Mexican”
Reviewed August 21, 2012

Once we discovered Besito, we just haven't been able to go back to any other local Mexican restaurants. Besito reminds me of Rosa Mexicana in NYC. First of all, the guacamole is made table-side, to your specifications, which is always wonderful because the ingredients are 100% fresh. (In fact, we often get a double order of guacamole because it's so good!) The menu is extensive and it's not limited to the same old burrito/enchilada selections. The food is fresh and interesting, the service is excellent and the bar is quite pleasant as well. They push their expensive margaritas a bit, but hey, you don't have to order one (though they are yummy). The maitre d' is quite attentive and anxious to please, so don't hesitate to speak up if you need to. Highly recommend!

“Great for snacks and/or a full meal.”
Reviewed July 24, 2012

Great for nacho apps (their guacomole is made in front of you and is soooo delicious!) and margaritas. If you're hungry, they do have a lovely restaurant with some very authentic mexican entrees.
