Great Food, But Very Busy

The food was great and great value (€4 for each plate) but the service was pretty slow due to how relentless busy it was.

Tapas was so fresh. €4 for a dish. Perfect if you wants lots of different flavours. The prawns was one of the best I ve had. Music was a bit loud. Came with a table of 3 we did really enjoy the food.

the food and staff were average. But there were too loud music and too light atmosphere inside the dining area!

All tapas are 4€, which is fair in average, some should have been cheaper, but some could have been a bit more expensive. The taste was really nice, the food hot and fresh, and the atmosphere authentic. The tapas is served in little bowls in the middle of the table for all of us to share, which we liked, but... More

Nice place with nice atmosphere; despite there are many people and you can not book, service is efficient and you get a seat quite quickly. Tapas are very nice: try the one with chicons, queso manchego and jamon serrano !! Deliciuous!! Price is reasonable. Sweet (Dessert) tapas are a bit disappointing ....

The first time we ate here we were a bit sceptic- the place looked like a student place, dark and very loud. But when food came we had to admit that it was one of the best tapas And raciones ( at that price) we had in Brussels. I am Spanish so I am very demanding when it comes to... More

Please if you don't take reservations by phone, TELL us so on the phone! We came with 6 people believing we had a table reserved. Coming to the restaurant, they told us no reservations are taken over the phone. This was really annoying, it is very difficult to find a table for 6 people in another fine restaurant on a... More

Well situated in the heart of Brussels, Tapas Locas is a decent tapas bar, but not a much more than that. Inside it's a little dark, some will like the coziness, other will regret the lack of windows. The tapas are ok, but you're not going through the roof. Service is a bit slow.

Most of the food was very tasty and the portions are quite generous. The staff is quite friendly too. And you can eat there even late after a movie or so. Highly recommended.

Excellent tapas at a very reasonable price (4 euros per plate) with decent sized portions. Service was swift and pleasant, although I had to ask twice for the bill. Would definitely go back.
