So friendly and thoughtful service, loved how our table was reserved with the warm and welcoming size, and in a primo location and with plenty of room. First class service all the way, muchas gracias.

I've been here a few times because of atmosphere but last night was the first time I'd eaten. WOW that food was great!! Perfect little nibbles to cater for everyone, food was full of flavour and came out pretty quickly! Thanks

It was a perfect evening. Mama Loco hosted my daughters 16th, and the staff went out of their way to make it a great evening. The drinks were the best I’ve ever had, the food was soo good. The vibe and decor were stunning! Thanks so much

Staff did well considering The Merchant was closed and ladies going to the movies for "Chicks at the Flicks" night were keeping them busy between 5 and 7.

We ordered the platter but forgot to tell the waitress that there was no squid on it. Other than that the food was delicious. I had a dairy free chicken nachos (thought it lacked chicken, the waitress placed the plate down and said dairy/chicken free nachos which I questioned? Then she assured me it had chicken. Still couldn’t really find any chicken though and wondered if they ordered a vegan nacho for me rather than just dairyfree????). my partner had a quesadilla that he thoroughly enjoyed. We both shared a delicious margarita and other than the comments above, thought the value for money was great.

We had a good time, drinks and food on our anniversary. Maybe not really a place for a romantic night where students standing behind you while you are eating, when they have tables booked anyway. Would be great if there's more options allocated for groups or couple bookings. However, we had a nice evening.

Food and Staff were good. However, the service was extremely slow. All food arrived after very very long wait to the point you don't feel like eating anymore. Jug of drinks was given to compensate. However, we prefer to pay and have the service desired.

We came to Mama Loco for a team lunch and it was great. The table was set up for us and the food came out quickly. There was good feedback from the team about the food. We have a few different dietary requirements like gluten free and vegan but the menu offered something for all of us. Our server was efficient and friendly. We would definitely come back.

Deliciously tasty food, lovely service. Would thoroughly recommend. Even managed to put together something for those in the group that can’t handle spicy heat.

We booked Mama Loco for our staff Christmas party and were so impressed. The table was decorated beautifully with a lovely Christmas message which made us feel very special. The food was amazing and plenty of it and the Sangria was fabulous! Lara was great to deal with and we felt in good hands in the lead up to our party as well as on the day. Would highly recommend booking your party here! Thanks from the Centrepiece team

It would be good if mentioned somewhere on the menu or by the waiter the level of spice. I dont expect all Mexican food to be hot and near burnt my tongue and lips off on a few items on the share platter. Staff were great though and gave lots of Sour cream to help reduce the heat.
