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!

Was disappointed as both our dishes were very average for $28 price for each. Ordered the Pollo a la diabla & Garlic prawns in guajillo chillies, not very hot and flavours not authentic and portions were not so large. Enchiladas were good.

Had a great night with my partner and our friend, ordering as we went, to ensure we tasted a few different dishes each, great food, nice wine, servers could have been more attentive, but overall a great time.

I ordered a margarita and my friend had a mojito - both highly recommended. The service was excellent, the vibe was colourful and very Frida Kahlo, and the food was plentiful, filling and good. I ordered the Colombian Mountain Platter which came with a nice mix of options, though for me the refried beans and the meat portions were a tad oversalted. And we also discovered they offer good meal choices for vegans.

I came here with my husband for dinner. We were disappointed. We ordered basic Mexican dishes that should have been on point. He ordered the medium guacamole, beef supreme nachos, corn and horchata. To start, the guacamole was too creamy, the horchata was in a small cup with too much ice, he was given only half an ear of corn, the beef in the nachos may have been put through additional grinder because it was too soft. The only positive is the atmosphere.
