Best nachos and guacamole we have ever had. If you go here definitely order them. All the food was just perfect. We ended up going here twice in a row. The restaurant itself was nicely decorated and all the staff were great.

We can’t make a review of the food because it was closed though we had a reservation and booked a table by phone The staff were inside but they told us to wait and this was after the opening hour (7 am) This gave us...a bad experienceMore

Amazing trip to Poco Loco, where I had the mixed fajitas and my wife had another mixed dish with enchiladas, etc. Service was good and food was the best Mexican food I've ever had! Would return. Only down side is the margarita cocktail jugs which...taste nice but didn't seem to have any alcohol in. Other than that it is a beautiful authentic Mexican restaurant that I would highly recommend.More

Amazing experience! Good service, nice environment and delicious food. We ordered the menu which included three Mexican dishes and margaritas, all delicious for an affordable price. Would highly recommend!

We ordered margharita (0,5l) for 5 euros, it tasted like strawberry slushie, there was barely any alcohol in it. We also had nachos, the chips were not much, from store its better. The sauces were not much either (not talking about the chilli which wasnt...chilli at all). The next day we had stomach cramps and end up with diarrhea.More

Gutted, we dressed up nicely for a bit of a date night on our first trip to tenerife. The margarita was basically frozen lemon squash (we added two tequila shots to try and liven it up), the food literally all tasted the same. In fact...the food was just bland chicken or bland beef coated in soggy onions and served up with some cheese sauce and some red stuff ( no idea what it is). Nachos were bone dry with the same sauces (think that cheap stuff you get at the cinema, but hardly any of it). We left early and paid what we owed, really gutted, really rubbish. That meal was full of misery and sadness.More

We found this restaurant totally by accident in a back street of San Antonio Puerto de la Cruz, it looked very tiny from the outside so were intrigued enough to go back to eat a few days later. It may look tiny on the outside,...but inside was a revelation, it opened up to a beautiful colourful and welcoming restaurant. A waiter had to show us to the lower level that we had seen from the outside, where there were tables set up inside and out on the small terrace. We chose to just have a main meal each, a bottle of beer and a bottle of a very nice Tempranillo red wine which was a bargain price of €6.50. Followed by I dessert and a coffee. Our bill came to less than €35. The service was very friendly, we got our drinks and food in good time and the food was delicious. Although we have lived in Tenerife for 10+ years and in the north for a vear we had never heard of this restaurant before. It is an absolute little gem and we will most definitely be regulars from now onMore

Very nice atmosphere inside. It’s a shame the restaurant doesn’t offer good food. We ordered three different dishes from the menu but they were all tasteless. Same ingridients but in different shapes. Pale and boring food. I would prefer water instead of margarita. It was...just juice!More

Awful food. Tasteless and covered with greasy cheese. Pls just buy a tortilla, take some cheese and put in your microwave instead. What a waste of an nice environment.

After a long uphill walk, we arrived at the restaurant, to be greeted in a warm friendly manner. The drinks arrived quickly, with the normal healthy Spanish measure. After taking our orders, the food arrived quickly, was cooked to perfection, and the taste was delicious....Can not fault this restaurant. Authentic Mexican food, with excellent service and value for money. Probably take a taxi next time though, lots of uphill to get hereMore

We visited Poco Loco on our first evening in Puerto De La Cruz. It is a small restaurant with charming decor and a wide variety of items on the menu. We weren’t sure what to expect as the prices were so cheap but it DID...NOT DISAPPOINT! I highly recommend the margaritas, they come in 1/2 litre or full litre jugs and I got 6 full glasses from the 1/2. The strawberry flavour is so good! We had nachos to start and the portion was huge, plenty enough to share then fajitas and burritos which were both delicious. I would highly recommend a visit to this little restaurant, it’s well worth the walk up the hill. For 2 desperados, 1/2 litre of margarita, nachos, burritos and fajitas we paid €28, it’s so cheap but so delicious.More
