If you try something new, you might really enjoy it, even if it's filling balloons with Hot Wheels and throwing them off a bridge to see if they'll float.

Chef Daniel Chance's Brazilian-themed menu highlights exotic drinks and tasty sharable tapas to keep parties pumping late into the night. Perk up palates with spicy fried calamari ($7) and skirt-steak skewers served with sangria marinade ($7), or indulge in fried sweet plantains doused with cinnamon condensed milk ($5). Seafaring tongue buds can cruise through an order of ceviche de mariscos, dropping anchor on savory scallops or shrimp and recruiting pieces of avocado, tomato, lime, and tostones to apply sunblock to their chin feet ($8). If you aren't interested in sharing, order Loca Luna's delicious paella ($23) with a fresh-mint mojito ($7.50), which Creative Loafing readers call the best in Atlanta.
Perfect for the crowd that doesn't like to choose, tapas plates teach the importance of sharing to emotionally stunted adults and encourage conversation. Nibble, savor, and talk against a backdrop of bamboo, palm trees, and koi ponds, or dance to live Latin music (featured nightly) before heading out to the outdoor patio to meet Midtown skyline views and nocturnal koi in human disguise.
- While sitting on the patio, we shared a bunch of different items such as the goat cheese, plantains with coconut milk, ceviche, chicken kabobs, and not to forget the fish tacos. They were all EXCELLENT!! – kl2, Citysearch
- Dinner was very good. We tried about six different tapas and none disappointed. – Josh M., Yelp, 01/27/2011
Loca Luna's chefs populate a menu of small plates embellished with compact Latin cuisine including tacos, tapas, ceviche, and paella. Chefs incorporate Latin ingredients such as plantains and mango into small portions of cold and hot tapas, which allows guests to order a number of small dishes to create a meal with as many permutations as a Choose Your Own Adventure story about a door factory. The lively bar keeps glasses filled until the wee hours, pouring drinks such as Loca Luna's famous original mojito, traditional South American caipirinhas, and a selection of domestic and imported beer.
Drawing loyal customers and celebrities alike, Loca Luna's spacious central dining room transports diners into a verdant, lively jungle setting with vibrant, leafy murals and tropical trees that delicately hang over tables and are known for routinely asking to sample the cuisine. The bar and lounge area serenades guests with live nightly tunes, and the restaurant's picturesque patio is perfect for practicing open-air ingestion. After dinner, customers can head to the dance floor to channel senses of Latin rhythm.
