Worst experience I have had dining for many a year. Service was horrific, staff uncaring and not on the ball. Available food was limited with many things on menu out of stock. Food we received was not up to proffessional standard. Overall a very bad dining experience. Will be spreading the word and definitely will not return for the same... More

Impromptu Friday night dinner with friends and we were quickly seated at a table on the footpath - perfect on a warm night! The service was attentive and friendly and the food light and fresh. Also found the bill to be a pleasant surprise.

The service was really friendly in there, the drinks were well made and affordable and the overall... More

As soon I walked into Casa de Loco I thought it felt really cozy. The staff were friendly and the meals were amazing. I have just gotten back from Mexico and tonight I felt like I was eating in Mexico. It has a nice vibe, I recommend you give it a try!

There was only 2 tiny prawns on that one. 1 piece of chicken on the other. That piece was smaller than a standard chicken nugget. We ordered a bowl of... More
