I´m Latin and I can say that this is the best of Latin food restaurant. Decoration and music make the atmosphere a true Latin environment. It´s a good experience between good service, lovely food and delicious drinks.

On the positive side, the ambience is good and the menu a little varied from the norm. The wait staff were pleasant. Unfortunately my wife's meal was cold. Not freezing, but the meat main (a form of mince) and the sauce were barely at room...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!
