Worst decision I made when myself and a few friends decided to eat here for dinner. The service was terrible from the start we were left for ages before having to ask if we could order. Food took forever and when it did come it was cold, very visibly microwaved the veg was shrivelled and all in all everyone's meals... More

Chiquitos is a rare example of a restaurant doing the hard stuff well and the easy stuff really badly. The good first: the food is good, probably worth 4 stars. The problem though is everything else. A grumpy waitress who made us feel unwelcome (the waiter was nice, but not serving our area), one member of staff with... personal hygiene... More

The food was fine but there were several errors with the order including the main meal being forgotten about. The staff were apologetic and did their best but even whilst trying to provide free drinks they forgot the order. The meal itself was good but there was about an hour between the kids meals arriving and ours...

Waiter was polite. Unfortunately the services took long. We waited a long time for our order to be place. The starters was great, but the paella came out Luke warm. We informed the young waitress and she was very apologetic it was like she was trained to say sorry. The paella came back half hot and half cold. So we... More

Our first visit to this restaurant on a Saturday night was great, good quality food, great service and we left feeling happy and satisfied. So a few weeks later we went back again, this time on a Thursday night. But oh dear, what a disappointment! The service was ridiculously slow, even though the restaurant was practically empty. The lad serving... More

The cocktails are big and well worth the money, when we asked to sit in booth they catered for us with no problem at all and our waiter was extremely friendly and helpful... More

We were a group of 5 people visited the restaurant as I only requested them to try Mexican food. Every one enjoyed them self as it was not a busy night. Drinks as well as food Order took long time to be served on the table. Because there was only one waiter serving the whole restaurant.

Stepping into the extremely quiet restaurant on a Thursday evening I thought to myself 'well, we'll be in and out before we know it' Oh how wrong I was. My friend explained to me her last visit to this particular branch ended in them leaving without eating or paying. My optimistic self reassured her this would not be the case... More
