Recently ate here for a friend's birthday - a group of 4, which was perfect for the small downstairs tables. I'd read a bit before going there, so had some expectations. Firstly, after spending time in Mexico last year, I have to say that this food is the most authentic and delicious Mexican food I've experienced in Australia. The menu... More

I was part of a group that took over the balcony for a group dinner. We lived it up drinking most of the items on the menu and eating away. I had a fantastic time it must be said. Given the amounts drunk my review of the food etc has to be taken as embellished to some degree. What I... More

We visited casa del loco in Newcastle on our last trip to visit family. Lucky we booked a table in advance because this place was packed! While there was not a huge variety on the menu being taco Tuesday, the items we ordered were fantastic. Lots of flavour and the tacos came on plates with three which made it perfect... More

This is a really good place to go with a group of friends for a quick meal and good cocktails. The selection of tequila is fantastic and the bar tenders are very knowledgeable about the list. The service could improve as we felt a neglected a bit when it got busy but we will definitely return and give it another... More

From the moment we walked in, ordered our tequila infused goodness, advised energetically on the wonderful menu to never having either the water or our drinks run dry. The food was note worthy, and our meals brought out with supreme timing. All in all, one of Newcastles better hidden gems. Guarantee you won't be disappointed. And with summer approaching, no...

Great food and drinks. You have to be patient though as it can get very busy and service can be slow some times. The staff are very friendly and are happy to explain or recommend the menus and drinks to you. Love the tacos and especially enjoyed the braised short ribs (as recommended by the waiter). Personally I like the... More

I came here for lunch with some girlfriends on saturday afternoon after hearing good things about the place. We were not disappointed! The cocktails were delicious! Do yourself a favour and try the pina colada, the white chocolate mousse on top is to die for. For lunch we had the corn chips and dips. The chips were house made which... More
