At the far side of Festival Leisure Park, Chiquito Basildon offers an unrivalled Mexican experience. Rustic décor and exotic dishes create a funky, family-friendly vibe.

Packed with authentic dishes from both sides of the border, the Chiquito menu captures the essence of all things Tex Mex. Start the fiesta with fully-loaded nachos or the soft taco sharer between a few amigos, before sampling the famous fajitas and burritos, or a classic chilli con carne. A take on the traditional Mexican market, the street food section of the menu features sweet chorizo croquettes, patatas bravas, and a flavour-packed Mexican frittata.

Family-friendly entertainment and a fun kids' menu evokes a vibrant atmosphere at Chiquito restaurant in Basildon. From the bar, a colourful selection of cocktails, mocktails, and tequilas will add a kick to any meal, whilst an extensive range of wines and beers are also on offer.

Basildon Chiquito has a buzzing ambience, and is just 9 minutes’ drive from Basildon Rail Station.

    We ignored the bad reviews about time being served - we were there for two hours and we didn't have time for desert even though we had waited 25 minutes for our order of desert only to be told they hadn't even started it so we left. The waitress said "its like this every week - don't dine out on a Saturday"!!! - sooo slow two other tables near us were complaining also. Not enough staff to cater for everyone.

    The food which we received was lovely it was just a shame the waitress served our starter to another table so we had finished our mains before our starters they took so long to recook it we ended up cancelling if we would of had better service I would of 100% of been returning for future events e.g. Birthdays but I won't be returning for such a delayed service

    Easy booking service.
    Table booked for 20.15.
    Restaurant busy and we had to wait nearly an hour after that time to he seated.
    Food was semi warm. One of our party had to send their paella back because it arrived cold.
    Food was tasty but overpriced for what it was.
    Restaurant buzz was from the noise of the number of guests rather than a particular atmosphere

    The service was so slow. We spent most of the meal waiting for drinks how can it take half an hour to bring a beer over. Waitress was not welcoming. I wont bother going back. It was so expensive too. Spent 3 hours in here had main course and dessert only.
