Won't be going back there to eat. Waited nearly an hour for a coffee on a Sunday morning! Food wasn't good and the service was poor. Very disappointed.

We might have missed it all together had we not seen the menu on the board in front of another restaurant. There was a sign hanging over or heads but it was again, in front of another restaurant. Upon inspection we realized the entrance was on the side of the building in an alley up a staircase. Its the restaurant above the restaurant out front. Worth finding. We sat by the window. Great ambiance, great food, great service, great fireplace. I recommend the ribs.

We loved the meals at Chico's so much that we ate there on two different nights.

We went upstairs and the atmosphere was great even though there were very few people there.

The service was great and the food, especially the lamb blackstrap was beyond yum! My husband is still talking about it!

We would definitely recommend Chico's and will be back there for a meal when we are in Queenstown next year.

The name doesn't do the place justice. Sounds Mexican, but is actually simply good pub food and drink. Upstairs is better than the small downstairs area, as there is more room and a great open fire. Food excellent.

Thank you for your comments.
Our upstairs has been operating as Chico's Bar & Grill for over 30 years.
We have dining capacity for over 80 people.
Downstairs our Old Man Rock cafe seats 20.
The open fire places are a great draw card which we have in both places.
