Everything was great the service and the food are always outstanding. The outdoor dining was nicely set up and we were not rushed at all. The only thing missing were the churros at the end of the meal.
Will definitely be back

Good and drinks were outstanding. Table was perfect near an open door.
Music became much too loud and we could not maintain conversation. Hopefully this will not become an issue.

An excellent choice for my out-of-town parents. They expected the standard burrito+ fare but were pleasantly surprised by the quality food. Loved the sweet-potato tacos and mixto skillet!!!

We took a business acquaintance visiting from Italy, who loves Mexican food. He thoroughly enjoyed the Chilean sea bass, while I the salmon over salad. The iron skillet mixto taco was just okay, in my opinion. The ceviche was excellent and the street corn was great. On late Sunday afternoon, the restaurant was beautifully lit with natural light. I would definitely recommend this experience to friends.

Once again back at my favorite place and it never disappoints! A quieter atmosphere for lunch but still amazing! Will keep coming back as usual! As a regular, I can’t express enough how fond of them I am.

Soft shell tacos were incredible. We consider ourselves very lucky to have been able to have this special before it was gone from the menu.
Service from Miguel was extraordinary. He was efficient, personable and quite charming. He made our experience outstanding.

I am a repeat customer of Besito and the food never disappoints. I find their prices slightly higher than my comfort zone, however the food and ambiance, as well as their location make it a convenient place to meet friends. Tonight, we ate outside. They have very nice outdoor seating except when the sun is setting on their western exposure. They have multiple umbrellas that attempts to shield you from the sun but it’s not always successful. I haven’t eaten indoors lately but in the past, it has been comfortable and not terribly noisy. During the pandemic, however, I’ll continue to get an outdoor table.

We arrived a little early and had to wait about 10 minutes for our table, outside, which was to be expected. We were seating on time. Our waiter, Dominick was excellent. He was engaging, informative and attentive. We passed on the guacamole appetizer this time, which is always excellent. The rum mojitos and rose wine were made to perfection and refreshing. The Chilean Sea Bass special with a size of sweet plantains were absolutely out of this world. I don't often write reviews but this meal and service warranted one. Kudos

I have been a patron of Besito in Roslyn for many years but due to the pandemic I have not been there for over 18 months. Happy to say that the overall experience is still excellent and the food is still beautifully prepared and tastes great. My wife and I had a 7:15 reservation on a Friday evening with another couple and we were seated promptly. The place was quite full with many people eating outdoors. The block of stores where Besito is located has always had Kotobuki but now also houses Limani Mezze. All three were crowded and just about every parking space was occupied. A couple of good changes to the physical layout: hostess station was moved outside of the restaurant proper and the tables were spaced much further apart on the inside (hopefully this will still be the case after dining outside is no longer an option). The menu is a bit smaller then pre-pandemic and prices are up. I assume both changes to be pandemic related and will likely be the new normal for all restaurants. Still plenty of choices and a couple of good specials for the evening. Overall service was good but two issues with the waiter: 1. My wife's chair had a serious problem with one of the legs but the waiter insisted it was okay. Took three tries to get him to exchange the chair after he finally admitted that it was defective and should be dumped as it was on the verge of breaking. 2: All four of us ordered cocktails but my wife's Mojito tasted like it was missing the tequila completely. Again the waiter insisted that it had to be okay because it has a precise pour of measurements which he had no control over. Finally agreed to get it topped off or remade. Guacamole, appetizers and all main courses were great. Although they are still giving out the little worry dolls at the end of the meal there were no churros anymore (I didn't see them at any other tables so I assume it was not an oversight). That was always a nice touch.

Our waitress was very slow and inattentive. She asked if she wanted guacamole, and brought it up before even asking if we wanted drinks. She hardly checked on us, and one food entree came out super later. Upset about no table side guac, and no churros when you leave!!

The restaurant gave table next to kitchen there was a constant movement near our table. The noise level was very high. It was my first time over there but I would not pay $100 for 2 person for this kind of environment.

I usually don’t write reviews but I felt I had to warn everyone about this place. First off it’s very loud because of music and tables very close together. Food is very good but portions are small for the high price. $32 got my girlfriend a tiny piece of supposed branzino fish. It was supposed to come topped with calamari but there were only three small pieces. Luckily they brought more calamari when I complained. I got carne asada tacos for $30. The steak was tasty but tough. For $30 you should either be getting top quality tender steak or a large portion. They gave me maybe 10 oz. I ordered a tequila flight for $38. I was told it would be 3 shots, and it was more like 3 half-shots. I know Mexican places where I can get better food for half the price.
