About Besos Latinos (Elliott Stables)

Committed to bringing authentic Latin American food to the streets of Auckland, Besos Latinos is not your average Tex Mex. 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.

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.

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!
