Excellent tapas at a very reasonable price

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.

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.

We dropped in when it opened on a Saturday evening without reservations. The owner was able to accommodate my wife and I at a high top table. Was so happy they had one available. We had a bottle of the brut cava that was very nice. We each ordered 3 tapas to share, the cold and hot tapas came out... More

I ate here last weekend with my husband. We came early in order to get a table. The position is great and easy to reach.The menu is very interesting indeed with honest prices, 4€ each. We tried the patatas bravas, spanish cold meats, pisto, manchego cheese, spanish meatballs with cumin and a tuna empanada. Everything was very tasty and hot.... More

Traditional Tapas restaurant at it's finest. Ate here 3 times during my 5 day visit to Brussels. We ordered different dishes at each visit. We did not have one bad meal. Food was delicious, staff was friendly and ambiance was warm and friendly. Centrally located so do yourself a favor and seek out this restaurant while in Brussels.

the tapas were excellent. We had no reservations, but you should. The owner made an effort to give us a table, which wasn't easy,even on a tuesday evening. We'll be back.

We found this on a 'like a local' app, we arrived just before it opened and there was a queue already! Service was slow but we had all arrived for opening & we weren't in a hurry so wasn't too bothered! If you need an English menu you have to ask but my French got us through! Food was hot... More
