Arriving highly recommended, our party of three had a dinner with about 7 tapas. Warm olives and dates with blue cheese as starters were nice and promising. The potatoes however were way too salty and the gamba was rather average. However the squid was nice....More

Dinner out with friends. Enjoyed patio seating. Liked the chickpea fritters and asparagus. Lamb burger just OK. Shrimp a la brasa too dry and oddly sweet. Friendly staff.

Went there with 2 of my friends for brunch today. They have pretty good choices of plates to share. I love the sweet patato pancakes and the shrimps. Nice spot for weekend brunch.

What a cozy place for a snowy winter night. Almost everything we ordered was excellent, with the exception of a red cabbage dish which was very tough and hard to eat.More

Truthfully, Tres Gatos deserves at least a 3.5, but if I have to choose between a 3 and a 4, I'm forced to choose a 3. The flavor of the food is undeniably a 5, but the menu selection is probably a 2. Basically, what's...More

This Boston neighborhood feels like a distinct
community unique and separate from the bustle of other
areas. Beautiful Victorian homes, restaurants with an
emphasis on being eco-friendly and providing local and
organic food, and a large Hispanic community. Visit
Centre and South streets for restaurants, cafes, and
little shops. The Arnold Arboretum is a beautiful,
large green space well worth a visit if you venture to
