“Absolute rubbish”
Reviewed 3 February 2014

Ate here on Saturday for an early lunch, 2 of our party were on a tight timescale so asked for their mains to come at the same time as our starter. this turned out to be far too confusing for our waitress, who frankly made us feel like we were just getting in the way, despite the place being nearly empty. The food came out in dribs and drabs, was completely the wrong order and by the time it was corrected our friends had to leave and take it with them. we had been there for over an hour!
The place needs new management and perhaps a new microwave or two.
Spend 5 more minutes in the car and seek out one of the independents on the outskirts of town.

“Good food, shame about the poor service”
Reviewed 23 January 2014

Visited here with a friend before we were going to the cinema for Orange Wednesday. We ordered a starter to share and 2 mains. We waited about 40 mins between the starter and main course, even though there were only approx 5 other tables occupied. We had a very abrupt waitress, who didn't check on us during our meal, resulting in my having to shout of her to order another drink! She also asked if we wanted a dessert and when we said no the bill was promptly put on our table...guess we weren't having any more drinks either!

The food was good, but if you fancy Chiquitos, go to Kingswood, the wait and service here ruined our visit.

“Average!”
Reviewed 6 January 2014

We visited as a family, mid afternoon prior to Christmas 2013. The place as usual, was very empty. Once seated on a very sticky table the waitresses did not seem in a hurry to take our orders. Eventually the food arrived, but staggered, so by the time my husband had his meal, I had nearly finished mine. The food was average and let down by paper napkins and dirty cutlery. We shall not be going again.

“Great Meal!”
Reviewed 3 January 2014 via mobile

Came here for my 18th with 3 family members and it was great. 2 starters, 4 mains, 2 desserts and 7 drinks came to £107, and it was delicious. The food was fast, the waiters were really polite and the food was well cooked. I really recommend the chilli poppers, they were so much better than I'd expected (sweet chilli jam sounds gross but it's way better than you'd expect!). I also had the feta cheese wrap and the potions were huge, the chips were really nice too.

Although I was a massive fan of the old menu and was kinda let down when it changed, the meal and experience was still fantastic. Just bring back the old brownies please!
