Poco Loco is a modern Latin American restaurant where the flavors of traditional dishes meet today’s urban Latin lifestyle. Poco Loco’s cuisine aims to create sophisticated dishes from the South American continent, which are mainly coined by the influence of countries like Peru, Mexico, and Venezuela to name a few. The food is delivered to the table in a grazing style on first prepared – first serve basis, on small plates that are designed to be shared offering diners a selection of small plates and larger dishes, alongside an innovative range of mocktails.

 Music and entertainment is as important as the food at Poco Loco, with a soundtrack taking diners to the energetic streets of Latin America, with regular live entertainment showcasing throughout the week. The concept expands over two floors, the ground floor being more family-oriented with direct access to the beach and the upper level offering a smoking lounge where guests can enjoy hand rolled cigars with staggering views over the Arabian Gulf.

As we were comfortable I ordered a Poco Loco Tiki Style mocktail and it was done with pumpkin with a touch of pumpkin sauce. This was so refreshing, delicious and served so well.
