Great tapas

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... read 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.

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.
