Guardado's

Guardado's serves up authentic, flavorful dishes from Spain and Latin America, in a casual and inviting atmosphere, in the heart of Bethesda, Maryland. We now offer Brunch on Sundays

Chef Nicolas Guardado and his wife Reyna opened Guardado's Restaurant in 2007. Guardado brought with him a wealth of experience, rising through the ranks at local-area tapas restaurant Jaleo to a seasoned head chef.

Now, he is infusing that knowledge into his own restaurant, as well as adding some popular Latin American entrees and some traditional dishes from his native Salvadorean background to Guardado's extensive menu.

"Guadado's is always very good. We enjoy the food and the wine. Parking is convenient-just across the street. It is family run and always consistent."

"Guardados is always solid. Very consistent, reasonable prices and always enjoyable. A kept secret in Bethesda. Very authentic south American and Latin cuisine, tapas style. Good mixed drinks as well.
Over the last four years I've eaten here 20+ times for both lunch and dinner. Family run and owned"

"A consistently good neighborhood restaurant that never disappoints. We have been going there since it opened and have become familiar with owner, Reyna, her husband who is the chef and several of the wait staff. One is always guaranteed a warm welcome. The ceviche and the lamb chop are not to be missed. ."

"The Paella amazing. We took it back to the hotel and enjoyed some more later. We walked there and it was just nice overall. The staff spoke Spanish too which gave it a special touch for me. I loved the plantains too."

"Nice place for lunch. We were surprised it was fairly empty for the noon time hour on a weekday. The food was very good. My friend and I tried 3 tapas. They included steak, shrimp and spinach. All were very good and definitely shareable. We'll be back again."

"We have dined here many times and it never disappoints. The hostess, Reyna, constantly circulates the room, taking orders, delivering food and just making sure everything goes well and that her staff are on top of everything. The menu has a great selection of tapas and full meals and special requests are easily honored. Guardado's may have perfected the perfect mojito too.
You just can't go wrong here."

"Guardado's is our favorite spot for a dinner with lots of varied tastes, good service, and good value. Try the plantain with cheese and chicken. We eat it last sort of like dessert. Yum! They also have a good wine list if you like. It can be a little crowded on weekend nights, but not so loud that it prevents from having a pleasant conversation in a normal voice. They also cater if you are looking for help with a party or event."

"Whenever my brother is in town, we always try to find a spanish restaurant for paella. We've eaten at enough to collect a good sampling for the area and Guardado's is the best that we've found. With four different varieties, there is a paella for everyone to enjoy. We also really enjoyed the ceviche and sangria to round out the meal. We will definitely return to Guardado's next time we are looking for paella."

"We dine here at least once a month, sometimes almost weekly. It has been our default restaurant for years when we just want a good meal with no surprises. We consider it Latin comfort food.
Their tapas choices match anything at Jaleo and arrive at your table piping hot. Our favorites are the gambas in garlic and oil, and the mussels. In my opinion they make the best ceviche in the metropolitan area. The mojitos, a specialty of the hostess, Reyna are second to none. It's the best dining for the money in Berhesda."
