Great atmosphere - outside with heaters. We were each given mini flashlights to read the menu & to keep. The waitress was excellent and the food delicious. We felt very safe.

Four of us for dinner. I forgot how good the food really is at Besito. All four entrees (Ribs, fish, and Shrimp) were excellent. Service was perfect. As we are all following strict Covid protocols, the outside seating was perfect for our safety with good ventilation, ceiling fans and plenty of heaters if needed.

Kudos to all for a fun meal....

We sat outside at the besito chestnut hill location on the other side by the doors to the mall. Maybe because we were further away from the main restaurant but it took a long time to get service ( drinks, food, water, chips,etc). There was little follow up. The food was good and it was a nice day. I know times are difficult and they are working hard to

Lovely evening celebrating a family birthday. Loved sitting on the patio near warm heaters and seeing everyone following Covid requirements. Our servers were very friendly and professional and recommended some great choices. We enjoyed our drinks, food (ribs, ceviche, fish, tacos) and the frequent removing of used dishes and interest in our feedback on our meals. See you again for our next celebration! Thanks again.

Always good food and service. Trying to pick times when it’s a little less crowded. Tough to patronize restaurants these days, but trying to do our part to support as best we can.

The service provided by Bouchaib was outstanding and he got the bartender to come say hello to see if I was happy with my custom made Margarita. The swordfish special was exquisite. Go to place for us when we want Mexican cuisine of high quality.

Great place to eat outside. Nice art with music, lighting and fireplace. Food was delicious. Loved the shrimp tacos and the tequila mojito. Guacamole was delicious but wish they added fresh garlic to the dish. Yummy chips and salsa. Not spicy enough for us, so we asked if they had any hot habanero salsa. They did and it was great. If you like hot and spicy definitely ask for some to add to your salsa and meal.
