Well if this isn't the best Mexican you have ever had you need to have a long hard look at yourself. The food is indescribable, the staff so friendly and helpful. It's just a to die for destination that you have to visit Wish we found it on our first night here. Yum!!!!

We have been to Poco Loco many times over several years. We have visited as a family, a couple and in larger groups and have always enjoyed fantastic food and good, friendly service. The chicken fajitas are awesome, pizzas are yum, nachos fresh and tasty. I can't tell you about the sweets because I'm always too full!

The service here was really slow and not great, the restaurant was probably about half full and we waited about an hour for food and had to ask for menus as no one bothered to bring them over. The food was expensive and average at best, really nothing special for the price of it. And not to mention the RULES... More

I'm a huge Mexican fan and drag the family to Mexican restaurants wherever we are. Poco Loco is by far the best Mexican we've had in Australia. The nachos and fajitas are to die for and the pizzas are also seriously good (although not traditionally Mexican of course!!!). The staff are friendly and accomodating. Can't wait to come back.

We've visited Flynn's Brach for over 10 years and always go back to this restaurant. We've been once this week and will go again before we leave our holiday week. It's great and even though some reviews say it's expensive, if rather get something that tastes so good!!

The food was great and the service was first class. We were a bit surprised by the by the fact that it was a 'Bring Your Own' restaurant, but with a... More

We had a family dinner here. The food was yummy and the nachos was really great - but we did think that the price was just a bit too high (for us). Our boys (12 & 14) are very keen to return

Booked in on a busy Saturday night on our visit to Flynn's beach, the staff were super friendly and gave great service, the food has great flavours. We had the main nachos / pizza for the kids + the stuffed mushrooms and the share fajitas. We were all full and really enjoyed it. The kids were given colouring in to... More
