This is located in a lovely area called Elliot Stables. The food was great and the service was good. There were crickets on the menu if anyone wants to try some. But the rest of the food was normal. The restaurant decor was done very nicely. Service was good. We would eat here again.

This is Mexican food unlike the Mexican diners that dish out pools of soupy beans and fatty, over-cheesed mains. Besos Latinos gave us great service, perfectly mixed drinks, and flavorful, well-portioned dishes. Pleasantly surprised to find a great Mexican restaurant for our first meal while visiting Auckland. They were still awaiting their fish delivery for the day so I missed... More

When we are in Auckland we mostly visit the "Eliot Stables" as a matter of "what we know" and have a look around the many offers the "stables" have. We talk to the various host and make a choice decision where to eat or just have a drink and a snake. From time to time, or one day of the... More

Sadly had high expectations as it is in the Stables on Elliot street which is a hip place The medium guacamole was actually very small and basically mashed avocado and nothing added. The ceviche was a small proportion but there was a large amount of banana chips which was not on the menu but filled up 1/3 of the dish-... More

Place is pricey but there are a few dishes which are good. I have tried the argentian dish, ceviche and also the fish.. I would recommend all except for the argentian dish... The chicken is always tough..

I found out that they serve a cricket quesadilla.....so I had to try it. The crickets are crunchy since they get very toasted. Decent cheese in the quesadilla......lettuce with shredded carrot underneath. Very spicy sauce for the quesadilla.....really enjoyed that. Washed it all down with a bottle of Sol. Chirp.

Stopped by one night on a recommendation. Was disappointed by the chips served with the salsa and the guacamole. They seemed like Doritos. Guacamole was okay. Lacking salt, garlic, and lime. Ordered the fish tacos. They came out slightly small but they were pretty good. Took a very long time to get the attention of the server to get the... More

We visited here as part of the tour round Elliots' Stables restaurants. They were having a quiet night so we got the full attention of staff. They were very nice, polite and inquisitive. We got given complimentary shots of blue agave (2 each!) which was a nice touch. The food was fairly tasty but the dishes were small. We had... More

Looking for a fresh quick bite to eat before a show, we ordered $18 meals off entree list. Enchiladas and Tacos. Both were not what they were described as, The taco described as a foot long taco full of delicious thins. Seems like for $18 that sounded k. What came out was a thin spread of very average tasting ingredients... More
