For me, Loca is still one of the best brunches in town in terms of value and quality. The atmosphere is good, there's live music in the afternoon, and the food/drink selections are strong to quite strong. They bring the courses out family style so you can try a bit of everything. Chips and tableside guacamole, various Mexican breakfast dishes and other appetizers, and you get to choose your own main course. For drinks, the margaritas are good, but the big draw is that their very extensive beer menu is completely on offer for brunch (with the exception of ciders like Bullmer's). For last call, our waiter (pictured) made sure we were well supplied. At AED 285/person, you really can't beat it for an indoor brunch.

I tried this place out last week for the first time and it was extremely busy, it was a Thursday night though but it was during Ramadan so I did not know what to expect. I did not eat which hindsight I should of because the plates coming out of the kitchen looked really good with all the fajitas and burritos on them. I really liked how they had a vibrant bar area separated from the restaurant. The overall ambiance was really cool with all the kegs at the table top which is always fun, who does not like pouring their own pint?!

Loca could be mistaken as a sports bar but it combined a couple of different atmospheres which made it cool. The only thing is it can get a little smokey so watch out. I will definitely be back to try the food next time around.

AMAZING! Best Mexican restaurant in Dubai and one of my top 5 favorite restaurants in the city. Chef Juan is the best and understands great quality food. Ben, the manager is always very attentive and will accommodate special requests on special occasions for your friends and family. We have also spent New Years here and it's a great place to spend the date if you need a family oriented place. The stuffed jalapenos are a must!

Hadn't been here in a while so dropped in for a quick lunch. The guacamole for a starter was as good as I remembered. Had always gotten the Tacos Baja but decided to try the Locas Alambre this time. This was excellent! If I didn't live on the other side of town I definitely would stop here more often.

ZMan Looks good! There is a new Mexican place coming up, actually it may be open, in Souk al Bahar called Fuego. It looks like upscale Mexican.

Always a good time here. I was torn between the chicken and beef chimichanga, so I asked a friend to go halvsies with me. Best decision ever. I usually am a chicken fan (over beef), but in this case, the beef was excellent. It was more like fajita meat, which was very tender and juicy. Great margaritas as well...

I’ve been to Loca several times and have never been let down by the food.I was here on Thursday for dinner with a small group and everyone enjoyed it.The guacamole is made at the table and is highly recommended.Our group also really enjoyed the beef ribs and fajitas.Service-wise it was pretty much on par with the usual in Dubai, though I have to say our waiter had personality and actually interacted with us.I think it’s a little bit expensive for Tex-Mex but I think it’s in the entertainer book so that would help.There really aren’t too many options, but I think this is the best licensed Mexican spot in Dubai.It’s not as good as Maria Bonita’s food-wise but they have booze, so…..

Not the most attentive staff, and the food was ok. The guacamole was the best dish. Like this venue tho. Will come back, but won't order the tamales again.

Slow service, ambiance could be much better. OK for a drink & chat with friends in the bar area but better authentic mexican restaurants can be found elsewhere in Dubai, this isn't one of them.

This is definitely my favourite bar in Dubai. Excellent range of beers, lovely Mexican food, and desserts to die for. The cocktails are a bit pricey though, but they don't hold back on the alcohol like some places. The music is very cool, and not too intrusive so you can hear yourself talk. The tables with private beer taps are an excellent novelty too. Not the most convenient location, but well worth the trip.

I really like this place, it has a bar that is huge, the seating is more than adequate, and, oh yea, the food is delicious! Go for the nachos with the steak on it, it's big enough for 2 people to share easily. They also have a great Friday brunch and I like the fact that they have tables where there is a beer tap so you don't have to ask a waiter to bring you "another one". I know that it's a bit expensive for the food itself, but, it's one of the best places in Dubai to have Mexican food!

Real busy the other night for the Euros. Went out on a limb and tried the chicken chimichanga, which was awesome! Margaritas are decent, but their beer selection is what really impresses. Also, I give extra stars to any place that make guacamole table-side.

Went here for lunch on Friday. They have a lunch special where you get 3 starters, guacamole, salsa and chips and a main. 175 aed without alcohol and 225 aed with alcohol. Good value. I hadvthe Hammour for a main and it was dry. I think the food is nothing special. I think Maria bonita is better. It's really smokey inside which is annoying and it's not really the classiest brunch. They had a cool guy singing which added to the atmosphere.

Great food, kinda expensive for the Mexican!! The beers are priced alright. They have a nice view of the pool area. Go for anything on the menu, but I would suggest the beef nachos, they are packed with lots of flavor and lots of items!! I have been here many times, and once for a Friday brunch. They have a beer tap in every table so you don't have to ask for another drink, just fill up your own cup while sitting at the table. Finally, a place where I feel at home! Hehehehe.

Came for a late lunch on a Friday and it was as good as always. Unfortunately, they won't let you order a la carte until 3:00 when the brunch was over, but they obliged us with some chips, salsa, and table-side guacamole to hold us over. Had an order of mixed fajitas, which were strong to quite strong. Now that it's too hot to sit outside, I'll be coming back here more often for my Mexican fix...

Came here for a friends birthday drinks on the weekend. Really nice place to go have chilled drinks if you are in that end of town. Loved the Heineken kegs at the end of our table and they have a huge Martini list in their menu although they were just ok - not the best martini ive ever tasted. Think this a better place to come for beer and tex mex food as opposed to cocktails - their Daiqurie wasnt that great either, bit weak. Would come back here again if in that part of town though for sure.

Loca is far and away one one the coolest bars in Dubai. It is laid back where you can get good food at various prices. The selection of beer beats any other place. The one problem or not a problem: it's kinda far from where I live. They do beer specials, and the one they have right now is a beer from Scotland called "brewdog". It's pretty awesome

Monday is rib night, a plate of their ribs and a beer for 89AED...awesome! Their ribs aren't the classic BBQ ribs but more of a chili sauce/Asian flavor which was still really good. It came on a bed of sauteed vegetables which made you feel like you were eating healthy even though you weren't. Also you get to pick any beer you want which was a plus. oh one more thing, they also have live music as well on Mondays which was great. Definitely one of the better deals in Dubai.
