Really pleased we booked a table and came to Loca. From the minute we entered we were greeted by Ernie (I think? Guy with Noel Gallagher haircut) Who did a fantastic job welcoming us to the restaurant and showing us to our seats. Can’t speak highly enough of this guy, so enthusiastic and an asset to your business. A great host. The food was also fantastic as were the skull deals. We had the day of the dead feast, which was awesome. All cooked brilliantly. Then we had nachos, halloumi skewers, tacos and quesadillas, all fantastic. Followed that up with the nicest churros we’ve ever tried and some mint chocolate gateu. Also I’ve never had Mahou before but it’s my new favourite beer. The Diablo verde cocktail was also very nice. Overall very impressed and we’ll definitely be back. Can’t understand how it wasn’t busier on a Saturday though when it’s as nice as it is

Great place, excellent food and service. We had the day of the dead platter sharer, the lamb chops were delicious as was the chicken. We don't like chicken wings so I asked if we could have two portions of ribs instead which was no problem. If I was to nit pick about anything it would be that the ribs were very fatty but this would not put us off returning to this great place

We celebrated my 40th birthday with friends in the private dining area at the weekend and it was all fantastic! We all had the sugar skulls offer which seems brilliant value for the excellent quality of the food. Great atmosphere and staff and we'll definitely be back! Thank you x

My friend ordered a chicken burger, recieved jt and it came out pink, half an hour later she is still waiting for her burger which she had to ask where it was her self, the apologised, another 10 mins the burger was never to be seen, she finally got her new burger however it was still pink! We didn’t get offered anything to say sorry and nothing was knocked off the bill!

The live band was very good but could possibly do with starting a bit later in the night. Food was good, wish I didn't have the car so I could have tried a cocktail or two!

This has been one of my fav restaurants in Whitely Bay for a while, but I can't give it a 5* review this time. I'm disappointed because I booked here on Friday 26th July 2019, due to there being a Facebook event for a latin/salsa evening. This was cancelled. Now, I understand sometimes things happen, and events have to be cancelled - but there'd been no update to the Facebook event. This meant I turned up and no latin/salsa night. This has resulted in 2 things: I'm not going to trust the Facebook events here anymore and I can't give a 5* review because of it. Bottom line: Don't use social media, if you can't be bothered to keep it up to date. Review of the atmosphere: There were hardly any people in, and instead of live music (to dance to), there was a standard CD playing, so the atmosphere wasn't great. Feedback for the food: The menu has changed, but is still good. The offer for 4 skulls and 2 glasses of wine for £22 is still there. The food was lovely. Cocktails 241 after 9 were nice, too.
