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!

Fantastic Mexican food with great meals and fantastic host Thomas. We a group of 13 were late after movies but Thomas made us Welcome & served us one of the best Tacos, Nachos & Mains. Chef Luis has a trained crew with eye to detail in flavours n presentation. Mango Chilli cocktail a must if u have hot tastes like us all. Latin Kisses to whole crew that night. Thanks Thomas.

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 middle of Auckland downtown. The pisco sour is very well prepared, try the jarra de pisco sour. You will enjoy this restaurant with a great latin american decor and great atmosphere.

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.
