This spot is one of my go-tos in Jamaica Plain, especially when I have friends or family visiting town. It's very cozy (which can sometimes mean watching your elbows) and it makes for a lovely ambiance. The food is some of the best I've had...More

A good tapas restaurant in the heart of JP. The food at Tres Gatos is very nice, served by very friendly staff. Good wine list. The restaurant draws a high-energy, fun-loving crowd, so it's a fun night out. On a pleasant evening I might recommend...More

The food is good, but it is very very overpriced. They have a slightly less traditional approach to Spanish tapas, good variations on the typical preparations, and that's not a bad thing at all. The pricing, however, is comically high.

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.

Jamaica Plain
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
