“Don't wander the whole of Amsterdam... Eat here”
Reviewed 14 March 2014

Ate here on a trip with gf. It's no frills but lovely food, reasonable prices and excellent friendly service. Don't wander the red light district all night looking for somewhere... This will do you fine with a varied menu and lush tapas.

“Great location and lovely tapas”
Reviewed 12 March 2014

Happened to find this place by chance after a wander around the red light district. It does a great deal on tapas and cocktails. It's quite small but there is an upstairs and downstairs.

“Great”
Reviewed 15 February 2014 via mobile

Really enjoyed our meal in this little find. Small place inside but great food and lovely service. One of the best places I've eaten in Amsterdam.

We ordered tapas to share and the waiter were great at advising on portions for the size of the group.

Would definitely recommend.

“Tapas and more...”
Reviewed 14 January 2014

We emailed Poco Loco from UK and asked if they would keep a table for us for 8.30 New Year's Eve. As good as their word, even though the place was packed, at 8.30 we had our table! They offered delicious tapas, excellent service and good advice regarding New Year in Amsterdam. Atmospheric and is bigger than it seems as it has an unexpected lower dining area. Looks out onto Nieumarkt Square and it's famous four pointy towered gate.

“small cozy place, with nice tapas”
Reviewed 9 January 2014

Had dinner in this small bustling place, which contained upscale tapas at a reasonable (not cheap) price. The quality of the food and attention by waiting staff was excellent. Would go there again, if in Amsterdam
