What I like most of the place is grilled Steak and Chicken breast with home made the chilly sauce! They have traditional dishes such as nachos and tacos, but I was really surprised with the fish taco with special chipotle sauce and the main dish...More

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...More

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...More

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!
