“Awesome food, service and vibe”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 December 2013

This is an absolute gem that I stumbled on when I was starving! I ordered a fillet steak with the most beautiful mash and mushrooms, in a pea foam, and ended with chocolate brownies. The Brownies were a little too sweet for my liking, but were excpetional nonetheless! The meat was fantastic. My waiter was highly attentive and very friendly and happy to serve, even though I was a single diner (often waiters don't want single tables I find) The upstairs area is absolutely gorgeous and whisks you away from the streets of Claremont. The ambiance is amazing and I will definitely be returning with many more joining me!

“Excellent food and atmosphere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 June 2013

Visited Loco Lounge for breakfast and was presently surprised. The coffee (their own blend, served on a tray with a pastry bite as well as old fashioned sugar cubes) was excellent and the food was fresh and well presented. The owner/chef was very welcoming and seemed extremely worldly wise. The only downfall for this establishment was the length of time we had to wait for both drinks as well as food. This point could be over-looked, when considering the intricate presentation.
