“Great Mexican food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

We recently ate here with a group of 22 people. The food was excellent and the drinks were expensive. The staff didn't seem to know how to take orders for such a large table, but everyone got their food and correct bills in the end. The toilets are a trek, up one flight of stairs and then down another. This is okay at the beginning of the night, but after a few drinks it becomes challenging.

“Mexican food in Bali?”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2013

Surprisingly good
Huge restuarant
Good to go to for something other than the usual Bali restuarant food, most other places have very much the same menu
We stayed at Purnama Villa 2 & could walk there in 3 minutes
On JL Padma just around the corner from Mugshots

“Give it a miss”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2013

Ate here with a mate on a Thursday night and it was an ordinary experience to say the least. I've been to Bali many, many, many times over 30 years the Poco Loco I remember from the 90's is no more... Used to be a great night out, with very good food but the last time I went there the food was just terrible and I was bored.

“A faded institution”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2013

Poco Loco must be twenty years old now, and has not changed a bit. This is good and bad.

It's good because it is a familiar haunt, that was once the least dodgy restaurant in town.

It's bad because nobody likes to see an old friend dying from neglect.

Poco Loco needs a wash and brush up, followed by a revamp of the menu to bring it back to life.
