Excellent pornstar martini followed by 700ml Corona. Shared the nachos starter- good portion for two with fiery halapenos for those with the stomach. Chicken rice bowl served in a crisp tortilla bowl was excellent.

'South of the border' passion is always served up at Chiquito. A menu of bold Mexican and Tex-Mex cuisine is prepared however the diner likes it. Burritos, sizzling fajitas and tacos can all be customised for vegetarians or those wanting more spice. A kids menu, games and entertainment add to the family-friendly vibe, and there is a great range of exciting cocktails, mocktails, wines and tequilas.
