Description: Welcome to Franklin's only Tapas Restaurant. Poco Loco means "Little Crazy" in Spanish, so come along for a different and fun eating experience. All our dishes are cooked from fresh, seasonal, local produce using authentic Mediterranean recipes with a Kiwi twist. Our chefs, Brenda and Hayden, plot together to concoct some cheeky combinations to tempt you. Tapas means "Lids" and is a traditional Mediterranean way of eating snack sized portions of food where everyone just shares what is on the table. The Italians call it antipasto, the Chinese call it Yum Char and the Spanish call it Tapas. It's just a delightful way to enjoy food. Check out our menu - and don't forget that we offer takeaways, too.

“A Must Try in Puke !”
Reviewed September 21, 2011

Have eaten there a couple of times now. The staff are very friendly and helpful, it can get very busy at weekends. Best to book in advance. It was a cold night on our last visit, the complimentary small mug of soup was a great welcome. The menu is often changed and with so many dishes to chose from its a good excuse to return. Roll on Summer to be able to dine outside !

“High recommend for a good night out!”
Reviewed June 8, 2011

Have been meaning to write a review on this restaurant for sometime as I think they are very deserving. I have been for around 6 - 7 meals here now and each time has had the same high quality for food and presentation. There is a good selection, the food is freshly cooked (none of this frozen rubbish) and portions are generous. The staff are very friendly and there is always a good atmosphere, service is spot on. My favourite tapas when in season is the figs which they cook with cheese and honey...love them! Make sure you book as we've been disappointed at not being able to get in on a couple of occassions.
