About Besos Latinos Restaurant

Translating as “Latin kisses,” Besos Latinos promises to romance your palate with a mouth-watering exploration of authentic traditional Latin American cuisine.
Set back from the bustle of Elliott Stables, Besos Latinos immediately transports you out of muggy Auckland. Runned by Mexican Artist Cecilia Mijangos, partner to international award winning Chef Luis Cabrera, the beautifully decorated space is an elegant and inviting evocation of old world hacienda and quaint Pueblo marketplace. Warm brick and exposed timbers are softly lit from the glow of arched sconces. A fountain gurgles. Cecilia’s exuberantly painted mural and dramatic flower arrangements provide a light-hearted foil to the collection of gothic Latin American folk art on the walls.
Besos Latinos is deeply committed to bringing authentic Latin American gourmet cuisine to a new audience. The first restaurant of its kind in New Zealand, Besos Latinos has nothing to do with Tex Mex – the nachos and tacos many New Zealanders mistakenly believe is traditional Latin American cuisine.
The restaurant offers traditional dishes from Argentina, Cuba, Colombia, Mexico, Peru and Venezuela, along with a fine selection of Latin American cocktails, wines and beers.
The staff all hail from Latin American and are always ready to guide diners through the tantalising menu.
Muchas Gracias!

we ordered four different tacos and were unimpressed these all four were served with the same blunt salad and shredded carrot, how boring, the quality of meat was good but you can get the same good quality at Mad Mex. Generally, food was average, drinks were good and good size and the ambience was nice.

Staff were friendly and had noted that we were on a time deadline for the theatre. Appetisers were quite quick but Drinks order was slow to come although it was early (6pm) and restaurant wasn't busy. Food was OK. More explanation about whether sides were recommended would have been good as the mains ordered didn't come with much extra eg salad. Overall fine for a quick pre-theatre meal.

The staff at Besos Latinos are incredibly welcoming and accommodating. Food and drinks are fantastic! Always a delight to dine and have my casual meetings there. Valentino is a wonderful wait-staff and her bubbly character warms up the place to dine at Besos Latinos. The online booking form was very easy to use, no hassle. As I booked very last minute, it was swift and easy to process through on the day itself and my group enjoyed dinning and drinking at this beautiful restaurant inside Elliot Stables!

Your wait staff are lovely and the food is great, however we were super disappointed our table had their meals arrived SO far apart. The excuse was one meal took longer to cook but in reality they should have all been served at the same time. Not 20-30 minutes apart. We couldn’t enjoy eating together!
