We had a glitch with the bill, had been charged for another group's drinks. The bill was sorted out amicably and to everyone's satisfaction with no difficulty. This did not detract from the enjoyable meal we all experienced

Food was beautiful. Problems with server getting the bill paid spoilt an otherwise great evening.

Besos continues to be our favourite restaurant in Auckland, for special occasions or just a ‘family and friends’ dinner. Luis and Cece are always so welcoming and that adds to the experience. For those who’ve not been for awhile, there are some great new menu items, especially the camaron tacos and shrimp quesadilla so be sure to head back soon!

Very, very busy night for the crew and clearly understaffed. Everyone worked sooo.. hard to make our night enjoyable. All that matters is that the food is superb, the drinks amazing and the welcome was awesome. We loved it!

Great food, super fresh menu, simple but diverse in one! Bit disappointed that the guacamole had scour cream added as they ran out of avocado (I have a dairy allergy) but not a big deal in the end. Thanks for a nice meal team!

The service was very poor except for the barman who was trying to function as barman and waiter when we arrived. Once we were seated the two other waitress' continued to ignore us until we have a wave one down. She then looked down on us when we asked for some information about the menu. There was no-one else in the restaurant but yet we were seated next to a large group who started to move around the furniture. We requested to be sat outside which wasn't an issue and much nicer. The food itself was delicious but I feel the price is not warranted when taking into account the service and atmosphere. At this point I do not think I will return or recommend. Thank you

Service was shocking. Food tasty but portions inadequate and overall would not come back. Ended up going somewhere else after to get food and have a drink.

I absolutely loved it! The service is impeccable and all the staff is very friendly. You can tell that they make everything they can so you can have a great experience. The margaritas is a must! One of the best margaritas I have ever had. I’m sure I’ll come back soon!

Wonderful staff, our waitress was wonderful, super helpful and great recommendations for which meals we would enjoy, and she was right! The food was delicious, packed full of flavour and the sangria was even better! Perhaps too easy to drink. The price was really good too, as students it can be hard to get a nice mea out but this was reasonable. Will definitely come again!

Hello, Was a regular customer at the Elliot Stables place and first time at the viaduct location and really enjoyed myself ... excellent food and service, and was pleasently surprised when I was recognized (after a number of years) and was told that she missed me, felt very special, thank you. Love the mannequins to fill out the place and hopefully will not be needed when when we exit this current 'alert level' for covid. Wonderful time; thank you and will definetly be back. Best regards, Mike Capovilla

Friendly (English and Espanol speaking) staff. Bad night due to harbour bridge blockage effects (staff and guests late). Margaritas were very slow to arrive, and we found the drink list prices nearly prohibitive to returning again. The wine list prices were exorbitant. On the other hand, the food is reasonably priced and was quite delicious. The ceviche was tasty and refreshing. The tacos, particularly the el pastor, were remarkably tasty. The starters were of good portion size, but a bit skimpy on the corn chips. We would definitely come again for the food. If intending to drink, we would not come here.
