The bright red interior has Mexican flair with trinkets and ornaments galore, complete with an indoor water fountain. On the menu, you’ll find authentic favourites such as their friend green plantain, Colombian empanadas, Peruvian ceviche, and their Mexican ‘machete’ foot-long taco.

We dined at your Wynyard restaurant previously and found the two not even comparable. The food quality and offerings at Elliot stables were very disappointing, yet the pricing was similar. Such a shame as we had high hopes.

It would be really nice to be able to directly speak to someone when making reservations I sent two messages and heard nothing back which made me wonder if the reservation had even gone through. Thankfully it had because it was a lovely place to eat the staff where nice and it was nice to have live music playing.

Beautiful restaurant with great atmosphere. The staff were delightful especially our Argentinian waitress and Ceci, the owner. They filled every request including a high chair, vegetarian food, birthday cake. And they provided warm latino hospitality that my whole family appreciated. The food was delicious, well are looking forward to checking out the other location in wynyard next time 🥰

We were disappointed in the fact our daughter's meal came very much after ours, almost 30 minutes after. When there are children why would you do that? It was her birthday so she was quite disappointed but had specifically asked to go to your restaurant as she loves it.

I love dining out and I pride myself on being able to pick out a good spot - Whether that be fine dining or a hole in the wall somewhere. These days with the calibre of restaurants in Auckland there just isn't any excuse for anything less than satisfactory. Besos Latinos was a miss in almost every area minus the company... because I had control over that! They didn't have Colombian Empanadas, Fiery Jalapeno Poppers, Fish Tacos and last but certainly not least GUACAMOLE (which by the menu states this is some holy guac... but I guess I'll never know). I actually had three avocados sitting in my kitchen at home... so I am a bit unsure as to why they lacked this key ingredient that appeared in a good majority of their dishes. The icing on the very bland cake (or should I say burrito) - I made my way to the counter to chase up a missing item on my dish (strike 100 at this point) and also ask for some hot sauce... SHOCK HORROR they ran out of hot sauce the week prior. At that point I was told I could pay an additional $3 for a home made hot sauce. Sorry? Everything should be homemade, I've paid to eat at a restaurant. The food was unexceptional, tasteless and not one bit worth the money, and this is coming from a girl who will hand over her life savings for a good meal. I order a better burrito at the fast food chain Mexicali Fresh down the road, which might I add ALWAYS has guacamole and hot sauce!! It was such a disappointment and at no point when any of the above was mentioned did they offer an apology. Instead I heard a wrath of excuses and justifications - If only that much energy was put in to their grocery order and food seasoning then I wouldn't be here now. One teeny tiny star for Besos Latinos.

The food was really not what I was expecting, I was a bit disappointed. Although I really enjoyed the molten cheese dip, but everything else was very underwhelming. The staff were really friendly and nice, great service! The food came out quickly and the portion sizes were bigger than expected so that's a plus. The atmosphere is really cool, great decor, only thing is we went on a Sunday evening so there was only a couple other diners in.

Have been looking for some authentic Mexican food since moving to California. Latino Besos is delicious and has great service. The mole sauce is fantastic! Will go back many more times to come.

Muy buena experiencia. Los únicos detalles es que nos interrumpieron un poquito de repente para ver si estaba todo bien, la comida no tenía picante y cuando pedimos nos trajeron el pote de 2 litros de chili, y el “flan con dulce de leche “ no tenía casi nada de dulce de leche!! El resto impecable

Really disappointed with our meal which is the reason for my low rating. The cheese dip didn’t taste like cheese at all. The fried chicken tacos were actually enchiladas with shredded chicken, they were totally mushy and the sauce was so overpowering. All food was covered in a white sauce. Side salads were a heap of grated carrot and lettuce. I was looking forward to trying Besos Latinos but I will not be back and would not recommend it.

Comida y ambiente excelente! Estuvimos la noche del sábado y todo súper. Había un cumpleaños y mucha animación. Lo único malo es que nos cobraron una margarita de mas y nos hemos dado cuenta al día siguiente.

This is a great looking restaurant with lovely, authentic decor. I wish the food was better though. We were a group of 6 and no one was blown away with their meal. The jug of margarita was the highlight and the coconut pudding was very nice. The churrasco steak at $32 was difficult to cut, let alone eat. The Chicken Diablo sauce on top was so hot it was inedible. Two people asked for no onion, one was successful but not the other. Other meals were okay but were the sort of tacos you could make at home. No staff filled the water jug or came to check on the meals. There was no hot chocolate - how can you run out of hot chocolate! All in all a little disappointing.
