After a long flight from the US, we wanted an easy restaurant with good food. Poco Loco delivered! We would recommend it.

We are a Spanish Tapas Restaurant as it says on our signage and menu. We are confused by your comments as it would be impossible for our dishes to be ordered as a main size as we only provide tapas size dishes, this is clearly...More

Small plates, you have to order at least two patas to be satisfied? I ordered meat balls and there were only 6 pieces without accompaniment. Good food but I would not go back there again.

Welcome to Franklin's original 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. 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 our dishes takeaway, too.
