Large car park with disabled spaces which aren't policed good access for prams and wheelchairs. This was an early evening meal which may explain the poor quality steaks were very tough and cold and peppery. Service was good but disappointed with food previous visits it has been excellent but this may be an aberration as they were changing menus.

We've been coming here for ages but tonight was special! Service was awesome from the start, food has gotten even better and the atmosphere is spot on! Yolly our waitress made our meal really memorable and was super accommodating with my fussiness too! Can't recommend this place enough!

Fantastic service, Yolly was very helpful and couldn't do enough for us. The world's best margarita was 10/10. Definitely be back!

Had a lovely family meal here. The place was very busy, but the waitress who attended to our table was lovely, friendly and very professional. All the family finished their meals and were very satisfied. The food was very tasty and plentiful. If I were to visit Basildon again I would definitely come back to Chiquito again.

We visited this restaurant on a girls night out. The restaurant is situated on a leisure park, so there are no issues with parking. The menu was great and I am sure even the most fussy guest would find something to suit them on here. Service was fast and friendly and when the food did arrive, it was hot, presented... More

Nice enough decor, no complaints, exceptionally quick service and tasty food. I was just looking for an easy tea after a day travelling & working and Chiquito offered a decent alternative to the hotel bar. Opted for the spicy chicken nachos to start, healthy amount for 2 to share; baked spicy beef enchiladas for my main. Enchiladas were slimmer than... More
