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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

There were 9 of us including a baby (booked for 4 people, the other 5 paid full price) and we had the most amazing time. The food was great - I highly recommend the garlic prawns for mains and the nachos for entrees. What made the place outstanding though is the customer service. The crew really knew how to make their guests feel welcome and make sure we have a great time.

Had the cricket quesadilla to experiment - everything tastes good with cheese and sauce!
The pollo a la diabla was perfectly cooked and the sauce delicious, my fellow diner enjoyed his Steak with the chimichurri - especially the pork sausages that it came with.
A lovely place to eat, enjoy cocktails and soak in the latin america decor.

The atmosphere of this place is awesome! The decor is fantastic and it is an enjoyable place to eat. We started with nachos and they were good (normally places have chips on the bottom with not enough toppings but I was very pleased with the chip-to-topping ratio here) and then each of us ordered a main. The portion sizes were good and the food was also tasty.

Beautifully decorated restaurant. The food is wonderful, as Mexican I can say that the flavours are very authentic, as if I were in Mexico. They were all very attentive and helpful, especially our waiter. We will come back for sure.
