Very busy little place, can be difficult to find parking near it so make sure you book and allow a little extra time before your booking. The staff are friendly and welcoming. The food is delicious. The price is reasonable. There are specials... so many...More

Fast corteous service and generous portions. A booking is advisable as it is often busy. Would recommend it for a group as you can mix and match the items on the menu

Hi lisahowie224. I think it's better to ring them and let them know about the food of your choice. I know for sure that they have other food options for vegan. :)

Welcome to Franklin's only Tapas Restaurant. Poco Loco means "Little Crazy" in Spanish, so come along for a different and fun eating experience. All our dishes are cooked from fresh, seasonal, local produce using authentic Mediterranean recipes with a Kiwi twist. Our chefs, Brenda and Hayden, plot together to concoct some cheeky combinations to tempt you. Tapas means "Lids" and is a traditional Mediterranean way of eating snack sized portions of food where everyone just shares what is on the table. The Italians call it antipasto, the Chinese call it Yum Char and the Spanish call it Tapas. It's just a delightful way to enjoy food. Check out our menu - and don't forget that we offer takeaways, too.
