Shambles from beginning to end...poor service...food brought out staggered...this included starters and side orders...steak sent back as was overcooked only to come back the same on a bed of chips...sweet potato fries only fit for the bin...waitress with attitude...was offered a free round of drinks and 50 % off main meals...considering their incompetence ruined a 40th birthday celebration I felt this gesture fell a little flat...won't be going back anytime soon...shame on you chiquitos

Visited Chiquito's for birthday celebration meal. I have been here previously and the service was slow but this time it was a shambles. Firstly I have to say the table service in all of these type of chain restaurants is abysmal. Having previously worked in the food service industry as a trained waiter and subsequently as a trained and qualified chef it beggars belief that these people call themselves waiting staff. The service here is painfully slow. When the food did come out it was staggered on both starters and mains. Sides came well after the main courses and some of those were inedible. Wrong meals sent out and a steak was overcooked, returned and sent back out still over cooked. To be honest the chef, if indeed he was a chef should be ashamed of himself. The manager did offer a discount after our complaint, not really good enough, we didn't want a discount, we wanted an enjoyable meal to celebrate a birthday. Sorry Chiquito's we will not be returning.

Just had a quick lunch here and food was great, staff very attentive and polite.

All together very impressed and the manager looks like he is keeping his staff happy which is nice to see!

We visited Chiquitos for my daughters birthday meal. We were greeted and sat by our server Rhianne who seemed very friendly and professional, not just with us but with every table. She made sure we always had drinks and that everything was good with our meal. The food was delicious and she even brought out a happy birthday brownie for my daughter (even though she admitted she had to get her colleague to make it - thank you to the other boy for that!). All in all we had a lovely experience and we will definitely be returning again soon! Thank you!
