The food was delicious, the service was outstanding. A great dining experience with family, will be back and will highly recommend this establishment to friends !!!

I'm glad we chose this place for my husband's birthday dinner. The place was amazing right from the ambiance to the food. Service was excellent. Loved the food. Both the beautiful girls Valentina and Elle ( I apologise if i have spelled it wrong) were on their toes to serve all the tables. They went an extra mile to make it special. Would definitely be back to try their other dishes on the menu.

The food and the drinks were amazing. The ambiance was excellent and the service was super. We ordered the garlic prawns with guajillo chilli sauce. The sauce was absolutely tasty and the prawns were succulent. Fiery Jalapeno Poppers were good but too much of coating

We dined at Besos Latinos for a special birthday dinner. In short, the food was everything we had hoped and more (the Colombian Mountain Tray is a standout meal), the service was friendly, prompt but not overbearing - exactly what a diner would wish for. We thoroughly enjoyed our time with you and will surely return in the future. Besos Latinos? Maravilloso!

The best margaritas in town, and even though they're not the cheapest I'd still happily hit them up for drinks. Their bartender REALLY knows his stuff! As for the dinner, everything was as described and mega flavorful. We ordered the Molten cheese dip for entree and Pollo Diabla + Green Go quesadillas for the mains. Delicious. Happy to recommend popping into Besos Latinos for a date night or a party of more.

The food was really underwhelming and not what was described on the menu, but the portions were larger than expected. However it didn't really make up for the food itself. For example we ordered some crispy fried chicken tacos, but they came out as pulled chicken tacos completely submerged in sauce. Just little things like that. The decor of the restaurant was really cool and the restaurant itself is huge. Only downside was there were only a couple other diners who happened to be really loud.

Slow service. Ordered a drink when I first sat down and got it 20mins later. It wasn't busy at all which was frustrating. Waited a while to order food. Ceviche was delish but Chicken bites was dry.

First time we had South American food and drinks and it was a fabulous experience.

Food was great but when we tried to order something on the menu, they said that they did not have it. That is the only bad thing for the night. Everything else was really good. Will be back.

The whole experience from start to finish was incredible. Both my partner and myself were pleasantly surprised with the size of the cocktails and how great value for money they were. The food was so tasty and delicious and was served very quickly. We will definitely making a return visit.

Thanks for a wonderful night celebrating my son's 19th service. Excellent service from when we arrived. My partner and I loved our choice of cocktails. We ordered a selection of starters followed by delicious mains. Colorful setting with great ambiance ... will definitely be back

Food was OK but not outstanding. Waiter spoke too softly...everyone was struggling to hear him...not just us. Enjoyed trying somewhere new though. Thanks.

Went with my partner and two of our close friends, we had a great time - the margaritas were nice and strong and food was excellent!

The amazing decor and wonderful service contributed to a great atmosphere to catch up with friends!

Lovely food, great atmosphere!

Delicious meal and great service! Cannot beat the arepas and tacos!!

- dined at Besos Latinos on

Food was lovely - large range of choice on the menu. Average portions.
Waiter was did his job but voice was too quiet, didn't smile and made no additional effort to connect with his customers (other than to ask if we were ready to order, when the menus had not yet been opened!).

On paying, the waiter tried to charge full price (although I had said I was 'first table' on arrival). When I saw the amount on the eftpos, I thought thats not right. He then asked to see the voucher. I was put out by that - you should ask for the voucher upfront (the booking would have said first table, and I said first table on arrival).

Comment: Elliot stables was full at 7pm when we left, but Besos Latinos was empty.

Had a great night with my partner and our friend, ordering as we went, to ensure we tasted a few different dishes each, great food, nice wine, servers could have been more attentive, but overall a great time.

Meg Seabrook

We had an enjoyable, if unremarkable, experience at Besos Latinos. Everything was absolutely ok. We enjoyed our meals, the service was friendly & attentive yet not overbearing, the setting comfortable enough and location ideal as we were going to a film afterwards. It was easy & quick - all that we needed the evening we dined. The tamarind margarita was tasty too! Probably a fun place for a crowd. We'd go back for a quick, tasty meal.

- dined at Besos Latinos on

Hidden gem, we will definitely be back. The food, the atmosphere and the service were great. You would not know it was there but once you have been if you love good food you will return.

Had a great dining experience at Besos Latinos for my birthday on Wednesday, the menu is so diverse and the food it’s so delicious it really is hard to make a decision! Service was great and friendly and we were looked after very well. I do appreciate our waiter gave us heads up about an unavailable dish on the menu before we ordered our food. To me, there’s nothing worse than choosing a dish that turns out you won’t be able to enjoy! Great food, great service - if you haven’t tried Besos Latinos you really are missing out on beautiful Latin American food.

- dined at Besos Latinos on

Very attentive, very welcoming and amazing food. We will definitely be back and highly reccomend a visit, you won’t be dissapointed!

The don’t have a children’s menu but they were more than happy to accommodate and prepare what ever we asked for. We loved it, thank you for making our Christmas Eve a happy one!

Gerda Survillo

Overall great place for a datenight or fun with friends.
Fish tacos are MUST TRY-i ate 2 portions. Steak taco was also very yummy.

Cocktails could be improved, sangria was too sweet and margarita didn't have crushed ice.
Overall i suggest this place
