Besos Latinos is found in Elliot Stables in Central Auckland. After seeing photos of the great vibes it provided I thought it looked like the place to be.
However we came during a weekday lunchtime of which it was very quiet. Maybe only a few tables seated. For such a quiet service, the drinks came out incredibly slow. We ordered a caprioska jug, and it came out as we were almost finishing our meal. We had questioned where it was and we were told it was coming soon..hmm.
The food was, nice. It doesnt shout amazing. The one standout was the pastry for the empanadas which had that soft chewy texture but flaky and crispy on the outside. It is cool how they make a foot long taco which is what we shared. Besos Latinos fills the spot and nothing was bad, but nothing was fantastic, although except maybe the caprioska. It deserves a lot of credit, even though the wait was well long.
I would recommend maybe coming for dinner or cocktails if thats more your scene to get the real Mexican boisterous vibe.
