Hey readers,

So the other night I went out for dinner with my friends at Besos Latinos and it was nice because it was definitely different and out of my comfort zone. It is a Latin based restaurant located in Elliott Stables. I had never been there before and I didn’t know what to expect so my assumptions were it was just like any other Mexican restaurant but boy was I wrong!

Right from the start as soon as you walk into the restaurant you immediately feel like you’re in a different country! You’re surrounded by a sea of bricks and Mexican decor which makes you feel like you’re in Mexico ready to order a bottle of Corona! There were also skeleton statues which celebrated the Day of the dead which I thought was pretty awesome, some may find it a bit creepy, there was also a water fountain in the middle of the restaurant which gave it an outdoor / indoor type of feeling without being outdoor at all!

The menu was great, very Latina. It had a range of classic Mexican food such as Tacos, Enchiladas, Quesadilla’s and of course Guacamole and Corn Chips. I ordered the Vegetarian Quesadilla and it was delicious! It had just the right amount of cheese and the vegetables were seasoned well. The food was great and the price was awesome because it was very affordable!

That same night there was a group there that was celebrating someone’s birthday and the waiters came out with Sombrero’s on and some wearing fake mustaches with trumpets and started to sing Happy Birthday in English and Spanish then one of the waiters put the Sombrero on the birthday girl, it was awesome to watch. The service was terrific, the waiters always made sure we were fine and that we were happy with our meals. Of course a Mexican restaurant is nothing without a bar and this restaurant definitely didn’t disappoint, however strong warning if you like your cocktails not as strong then let the waiter know because when it came to the cocktails it was like fireworks going off in your throat 😂

Overall I recommend paying this restaurant a visit, especially if you love your Mexican food or if you just feel like going on holiday because this place will definitely provide you with that feeling! It definitely left me feeling like I needed to book a flight to Cancun, Mexico!
