I had heard about Besos Latino so I was very excited when we finally went there for dinner. However excitement soon turned to disappointment when the food arrived - pedestrian at best. The food was stodgy, heavy and overly salty. The Holy guacamole was little...More

We went for lunch. We tried ceviche (fantastic), guacamole (OK), beef arepas (Stand-out great) and empanadas (good). The Pisco Sour took a while to come, but was awesome. Haven't had such a good one since visiting South America. Staff were all Spanish speaking and a...More

Not sure how authentic the food is, but it tastes great. The prices are reasonable and the portions are generous. The best part is the location - right at the back of Elliot Stables. You could order food and have it delivered to a table...More

Description
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!
