Can't fault the food and drink. Staff very friendly but service really slow (and the place wasn't busy). Also quite a few of the items on the set mothers day menu not available to order which wasn't good, and only had 5 deserts left between 6 of us! Wouldn't put me off going back though, maybe just an off day which we all can have!

I went for the mothers day meal & i would have happily paid more for the meal! Everyone enjoyed it and the meat on the su day dinner was cooked to absolutely perfection! Very excellent price! Will definitely be coming back!

Brilliant night in the private dining area for my sons 18th, amazing food with so much choice and huge portions, attentive staff and the best mai tai coctails ordered as welcome drinks! Don’t hesitate to book this and the buffet style menu for large parties

Really enjoyed our visit to Loca. Group of 10 booked the private dining room which was the perfect space so we could all chat to each other. It was easy to book and communication was good in advance when sending over our pre-order and they made sure we were advised of the deals on offer etc. Service on the night was good too and requests were dealt with quickly. Everyone really enjoyed their meals.

Great atmosphere but food was quite average, variable quality amongst our party. Good value though, and great cocktail deal.

Couldn't have asked for a better venue for a birthday meal! We booked the private dining room for my Dad's 60th. It was the perfect setting for our family to get together. The food was fantastic, most of us had the sugar skull deal which was great value for money. Portion sizes were very generous too! Massive thankyou to the staff who were so helpful with our surprise drinks in their sister venue Bar 52 afterwards. We will definitely be back- thankyou

Worst service experience I have ever had. Although the staff were civil and obviously very busy, the problem was obviously a lack of kitchen staff. I had a table booked for 8pm. It was 9pm before I was seated. It was 9:50pm before we got our starters. We had only finished our main course by 11pm We had no time for desert which should have been part of the three course valentines deal. I did complain and we did receive complimentary drinks and only paid a fraction of what it would have cost. To be fair even amongst the chaos they did not compromise on the quality of the food which was lovely

We visited Loca after a private reservation for my Mum's 50th and the experience was fantastic. From the moment we entered til our departure, the staff were outstanding and so very accommodating considering we had three babies and two young children in our party. As always, the food was superb and we won't hesitate to book or recommend Loca again!

Took some friends who are over from New Zealand for a meal and after choosing a couple of recommended menu choices we thoroughly enjoyed our food. There was some good live music on while we were there. Pity the usual chips weren’t available but otherwise the food was great

Lovely cocktails although it seemed to be up to us to work out when groups were done to send up more people. Would’ve been better if someone was organising this. Starters were really good. I can’t comment on other main courses but I know those that had lamb said it was a little chewy so perhaps a longer cooking time on the stew is needed to get more tender meat? Unfortunately one of our party also had to wait for their main as it had been forgotten, however the duty manager (I presume) took some money off for the inconvenience. All in all we had a great time just a shame about a couple of small points.
