“Average Tex-Mex place, not overtly expensive”
Reviewed February 5, 2013

Loco Norte is one of those Tex-Mex places where you get what you expect to get in this kind of place. A safe bet if you look for something familiar to your texmexan taste-buds. Salads were good and portions large. We were happy but not impressed. Anyway, a good place to check out if you fancy this kind of food.

“Very good, but you need to be there on the right day”
Reviewed January 10, 2013

This place if very good, burgers, hot wings, finger food - everything is very tasty and original, plus it's beautifully served. However there's a small problem - one out of three times (in our experience) there's either a different chef, or the original chef is in a bad mood - he puts a bit too much sauce in food and screws things up a bit. But we loved this place nonetheless! Even the beer is good, although it's not tap beer. The place may seem a bit expensive, but it really isn't when you consider how non-standard the cuisine is and that you're at a ski resort.

“Very nice!”
Reviewed January 3, 2013

We got here at 8.30, and ordered food. The menu was a little plain, had a choice of 3 burgers, steak, some pasta and starters. Not a huge selection of food but it was very tasty. The food was cooked to perfection and was well flavoured! We had our food and finished eating by 9.45 as they took away our dishes they told us we would have to leave as they were setting it up for a strip club by 11. Our food didn't have time to settle before we were chucked out in the cold. I would recommend to go here, but go early so you don't feel rushed! Oh and it was VERY expensive!

“Texmex until ten”
Reviewed April 20, 2011

This restaurant is open until ten and an hour later the same door leads to strip bar. Food was alright, spicy and not for those on a diet. I ate black and white pepper steak which was good value and great size. We took sangria but it was too like lemonade without fruits.

Loco Norte is not ideal for big groups but great just before heading nighlife.
