Great atmosphere, food and reasonable prices. Although everything on the menu is delicious my favorite is the Pabellon. Make sure to order it with an egg. It's terrific!!

A friend and I had a lovely dinner here recently right before we attended an evening performance at the New Rep Theatre in Watertown. Certainly it's especially handy for theatregoers but even beyond that I loved the atmosphere, the food, and the service. We were treated very well, with helpful and friendly servers. Food came promptly, the steak quesadillas were... More

I love La Casa de Pedro! Incredible good, and great service. While the drinks can be a pit pricey (although this is pretty usual at restrains ya nowadays) they are worth the extra couple of bucks because they are made with natural ingredients. The piña coladas are not made with some cheapo mix and the mojitos are delicious. All of... More

Helped Pedro's celebrate 20th year in Watertown, Sept 6 with pig roast. As always delicious food from the best Mojito's to pork tacos and house made desserts. Staff is attentive and friendly. High ceilings, colorful artwork and lots of plants add a Latin vibe for a night of arm chair travel. Nights with the salsa band are always hopping and... More

We had a large group for a sunday lunch, and we were seated immediately. The waiter was very attentive and kind. Huge menu, with many vegetarian options. Everything we ordered was very good. Be cautious if you do not like spicy foods, because most of what we ordered was very spicy. Food wise, not so great for kids. They offered... More

Popped in for a quiet lunchtime drink today while our toddler was asleep in her stroller. We asked to sit outside and were initially told we could sit were we liked in the patio area outside the restaurant. As we were walking to a table another employee came over and told us that we couldn't take the stroller to the... More

We love coming here with our kids (10 and 12). The inside of the restaurant is uniquely and festively decorated. The extensive menu offers authentic Venezuelan cuisine, served in generous portions, that is consistently delicious. The evening's special appetizer and entrée are usually difficult to resist. La de Camarones (salad with shrimp--$13.50) is my favorite salad to share. Sautéed shrimp,... More

Fantastic margaritas and mojitos like no other, authentic Venezuelan dishes -if you love pork, try the "piernas de baby"- with catchy names and wonderful descriptions AND on Friday and Saturday nights, live Latin music after 8PM that makes you want to get up and dance---- what else can you want?! They also have an outside patio if you prefer "al... More

If you're going to the Arsenal Theatre and it's a warm evening, go to Pedro's for dinner, sit outside and leisurely enjoy your meal since the theatre is only steps away! Delicious food; try ordering different dishes to share but order the chocolate flan for dessert for yourself; you won't want to share this! It's outstanding!

Consistently good, with traditional Venezuelan cuisine and more. Nice cocktails and beer outside on a summer night. Not at all fancy, but a nice time with good food and drink.
