Luiz and his crew were absolutely amazing! The best nachos we had ever had and outstanding quesadillas, incredible nachos. I could not recommend this restaurant enough for any occasion: from anniversaries to date nights, this is the perfect combination of amazing food, excellent service and inspiring atmosphere. Top top top!

I wasn't sure what to expect from this restaurant so I was pleasantly surprised to see what was in store for me. This restaurant is located in downtown Auckland in the same building as many other restaurants. So if you are looking for a quiet,peaceful dinner this is definitely not suitable. We were seated immediately having made a reservation in... More

When going out for Mexican in NZ I don't have high expectations. Besos Latinos did it extremely well. Fresh fresh ingredients, great flavoursome dishes - I will be back for sure. We started with some chips and guacamole- they were a fantastic start to what was going to b a great meal. Rather than opt for a main I tried... More

This is located in a lovely area called Elliot Stables. The food was great and the service was good. There were crickets on the menu if anyone wants to try some. But the rest of the food was normal. The restaurant decor was done very nicely. Service was good. We would eat here again.

This is Mexican food unlike the Mexican diners that dish out pools of soupy beans and fatty, over-cheesed mains. Besos Latinos gave us great service, perfectly mixed drinks, and flavorful, well-portioned dishes. Pleasantly surprised to find a great Mexican restaurant for our first meal while visiting Auckland. They were still awaiting their fish delivery for the day so I missed... More

When we are in Auckland we mostly visit the "Eliot Stables" as a matter of "what we know" and have a look around the many offers the "stables" have. We talk to the various host and make a choice decision where to eat or just have a drink and a snake. From time to time, or one day of the... More

Sadly had high expectations as it is in the Stables on Elliot street which is a hip place The medium guacamole was actually very small and basically mashed avocado and nothing added. The ceviche was a small proportion but there was a large amount of banana chips which was not on the menu but filled up 1/3 of the dish-... More

Place is pricey but there are a few dishes which are good. I have tried the argentian dish, ceviche and also the fish.. I would recommend all except for the argentian dish... The chicken is always tough..

I found out that they serve a cricket quesadilla.....so I had to try it. The crickets are crunchy since they get very toasted. Decent cheese in the quesadilla......lettuce with shredded carrot underneath. Very spicy sauce for the quesadilla.....really enjoyed that. Washed it all down with a bottle of Sol. Chirp.
