Los Locos Review

Just a short distance from the craziness of Covent Garden Market you'll find the red exterior of Los Locos inviting you down to their intimate neon lit basement bar stroke restaurant stroke club.

Los Locos has been geared up for pretty much everyone and anything since 1986. If you're after some decent food with wine - they've got it; a beer or a cocktail - they have an impressive selection at very reasonable prices; a bit of a boogie - dj kicks off around 11pm; office & birthday drinks, hen & stag parties - all are catered for with ease and enjoyment.

Key to the ambience created at Los Locos, with a bit of inside knowledge, is the staff - majority of them have been at the venue for some time, we're talking years here - a rarity at most venues in London. Why? Quite simply they enjoy working there. And that is seen to rub off on the punters who go there. The staff are attentive and friendly, especially that Michael - Lo Loco indeed, though you'll have to catch him on a quietish night to get the full Loco.

The food is just right, gastro prices but huge portions that will leave you more than satisfied and at the bar ordering beers & cocktails. Recommended food has got to be the 'Loco Platter' for starters. £9 between two and there's a lot of food to get through - Crab fritters, Hot ‘n’ Spicy Chicken Wings, your choice of potato skins & all the accompanying dips. For mains the Fajitas were delicious - served on a sizzling skillet with the works. Around £14 for a choice of Steak, Chicken or Vegetarian. For great value the Jalisco Chicken is hard to beat at £9.95. Fresh chicken breast stuffed with Brie, jalapus, red kidney beans and scallions, wrapped in bacon, toppped with cilantro sauce and mixed salad.

To accompany the food they have a reasonable selection of wine: house wine is £13, but if you splash out a little bit extra you can get an excellent bottle of Californian Zinfandel for £18 - a smooth & juicy red perfect with meat. Otherwise there's loads of drink promotions every night and beer is £3.30.

They have a relaxed policy towards stag & hen parties, and hence Los Locos is a perfect venue to book a table before taking to the dance floor. On a Saturday evening there were two hen parties and three stag parties all enjoying the food and drinks before enjoying the cheesy disco playing all your old favourites - a party mix from 70's & 80's classics, R'n'B, chart hits and popular dance. more

“My wife and I recently paid a visit to Los Locos and enjoyed ourselves immensely. The service provided was warm and friendly. We were made to feel welcome. The atmosphere was lively as it was quite busy. Usually when we eat in town at this time, we're the only people in. The portions were generous, the menu wide and varied. I can't think of anything negative to say about the place. Very good value for money. Great location, just a short walk to the theatre. We'll visit again as you can't go wrong for the price and quality of the food. I don't mind leaving a large tip for the staff as the certainly earned it. Looks like they enjoy working at Los Locos. If I was 40 years younger, I might like to work there too! Ha ha.”

“I decided to book a table at Los Locos, through a friend’s recommendation, prior to our visit to a nearby theatre, hoping they’d offer value for money and quick service in case we were delayed upon arriving in the West End. As we were pushed for time, I made it known to our hostess and subsequently we were shown to our table with the minimum of fuss. We all chose 2 courses from the Al a Carte menu, each arriving in good time, ample in portions, thoroughly delicious and washed down with a delectable bottle of Montes Cabernet Sauvignon. The staff at Los Locos were attentive without being bothersome. It’s a lovely little restaurant and judging by the amount of diners there at such an early point in the evening, it would seem to be very popular with Londoners, which is always a good sign, I find. To sum it all up, the service, food and cost all rank very highly, it’s clean and tidy with the minimum amount of fuss. Excellent all round and keep up the good work! Mr & Mrs Blith-Lavey.”

“frankly los locos is a false advertisement. it is no more a classy restaurant than mcdonalds is. the food is of the same quality and for what you get the prices are extortionate. for a start my meal was late i was with a party of twelve and tp sit and watch my fellow diners eat for 10 minutes before my food arived as they forgot our order! next i visited the toilets and i have to say the toilets actually are better quality in mcdonalds and burger king! the floor was wet, it smelt awful and there was a distinct lack of toilet paper! i mean really, need i say more?!”

“I was introduced to Los Locos by way of a hen night. Put simply, the nachos on offer at pizza hut are better than that offered here; food tastes of the processed kind. Women/girls tend to behave like they don't get out much, plenty of dodgy looking fellas who don't speak english. Some 1/2 naked girl offering tequilas. Summary: cheap tacky joint for those on a small budget and 'chavs'. ”

“Great bar/club excellent food. I like it because it's hidden away, it gets busy, but never too busy that you can't move. Good selection of drinks at good prices. It's a place to let your hair down, and usually at a weekend it has a hen party which always makes the night more interesting! - for a fun not too expensive night out give it a try.”

“Loc locos is the place to be for a good nite, good friendly atmosphere, good crowd of people, and as for the good looking Dj with the lovely smile, he alone is enough to make me go again. All the staff are friendly and welcoming, from the lavatory assistant to the door men. Drink prices are fair, in general a good place to relax and unwind after a hard week at work.”

“This Underground bar is rather small and cramped inside, especially around the bar area. It is also too dark for my liking. They serve a variety of drinks which are the usual London Prices, however they do have a happy hour for cheap drinks which is alrite. Music and atmosphere was average. I wouldn't visit this place again.”
