We went to Poco Loco after asking the locals for recommendation. The restaurant is closed to the Flynns Beach, and offers some Mexican food and pizza. We ordered the nachos for appetizer, and I had pizza for main. The food was average, and I didn't want to finish the pizza. The service was not very good: we wanted to order... More

We enjoyed having dinner here very much. Mexican food was good, sizes are quite big. Pricelevel is good as well. Please consider they don't serve alcohol. (No Tequila with the Mexican food).

We have been infrequent regulars over the last 4 years, and found our last visit a shadow of previous dinners we have had there. Very overpriced, corkage $4 and service a tad iffy. Decent enough meal but better value elsewhere. Sorry guys, I think you've lost us 😟

The restaurant is very small so it would be a good idea to book. When we were there for dinner mid week people were being turned away. We were a group of six and all of us loved our meals. We have all eaten Mexican many times before and reckon this was up there amongst the best. The two wait... More

Meals were nice well presented probably a bit overpriced especially for the service that was received...unfortunately. You pay top dollar you want good service simple!

We love our Mexican but after reading a few reviews were a bit worried about this place. We were definitely not disappointed. The food was fantastic. It was pricey for some things but well worth it. The nachos had the right balance of cheese, salsa and guacamole. The faitas were absolutely fantastic. They were so flavoursome. I didn't even miss... More

Ventured out for our last night in Port, tried to get in the night before but was turned away as they were booked out. Presumed it was a great place to eat so booked for the following night. Very small venue so they can't seat many at once. We were sat down and asked if we had brought drinks- we... More

The staff are friendly and helpful. The place always seems full so it's wise to book. It's BYO with no liquor licence. The corkage is $4 per person. The food options were ok but we thought it was a little expensive for rather basic Mexican food. However there were good value pizzas and the kids meals were only $5-6. Probably... More
