Great service. One member of our party had very specific dietary requirements and this was well catered for with great help from the very friendly waiter. Really nice food. Desert menu a bit disappointing.

We came here for the latin american food but we were happily surprised to see Peruvian dishes, authentically flavoured and prepared. Luis, the chef, is originally from Mexico but has a great touch for Ceviche and Lomo Saltado. We fully recommend this restaurant in the...More

We just loved it. Fabulous food selection and taste amazing. (Try the Colombian Mountain Tray !!) Staff were brilliant and dress up in day of the dead makeup. Cool surroundings. Great cocktails. A perfect evening really.

We took advantage of First Table for the first time and were not disappointed, the fish tacos were yum and the guacamole fresh but the tortilla chips tasted like they were from a packet, that was the only let down. Will definitely be back.

This is one of my favourite places in Elliot Stables. They have a varied menu but we usually go for the tacos, quesadillas etc. The bean dip is also yummy! The prices are reasonable. We usually get a selection of food and share it. Perfect...More

The place is very vibrant, lovely and attentive staff. Only downfall is that the menu is bit overpriced compared to the quality of food being served. As there are other restaurant chains which serve better quality with the same price or even less.

Nestled at the very back of the quaint Elliott Stables is a treasure trove of authentic Latin American gourmet delights. Besos Latinos – ‘Latin Kisses’, a romantically filled and enchanting promise that is delivered to the lips in every morsel. Softly lit by fairy lights and candles, the old brick interior is added to by a feast of colourfully spicy and original murals by Mexican artist CeciliaMijangos. Her inspiring interior design equals the food for its authenticity and uniqueness. Enormous flower arrangements add drama in the curved recesses and add an air of surrealism when mixed with the eclectic collection of gothic Latin American folk art. This is a restaurant to come to enjoy a host of new flavours and combinations in an old world space. It certainly seems as if Auckland is a distant city as finer details materialise into the larger landscape of the airy space. The lively atmosphere at Besos Latinos is perfect for either a group or a couple on a date!
