On the Tollgate Retail Park, Chiquito Colchester offers delicious Mexican food in a relaxed setting. On the edge of the historic town, the restaurant is close to both the town and the surrounding Essex countryside.

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 Colchester. 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.

Just a 15-minute drive from Colchester town centre and 6 minutes from Marks Tey Train Station, Colchester Chiquito is a welcome haven for shoppers.

    We had a birthday dinner for 4 people. Shown to table quickly order for drinks came in 10 minutes and starters within 20 mins. Waitress was friendly smiling and attentive. The meal was good and service very good. Forgotten garlic bread was fetched on reminder with apologies so no problem. Only improvement would be a dance floor for the great Latin background music. On leaving the manager asked if our evening went well so we couldn't ask for a better night. Thoroughly recommended.

    Needs a bigger car park. Very unorganised and under staffed too. Waited nearly 30 minutes to get drinks and food was slow too. Other diners waiting for tables blocking up the restaurant as no where to wait as bar area full.

    The waiter was very attentive, it was our first visit, however we will not come back, half the food we wanted was unavailable, I ordered the belly of pork, was way too salty, my partner had the chicken burger, was so dry, the children's meals did look good, but that was about it, never again, we didn't complain on the day and paid full price, we also left a tip for our waiter as he deserved it, but other than him doing his job properly and being in the business myself I was very disappointed

    Not great food service fine management should concentrate on food standard not on doing paper work in restaurant while food is being served and don't have a go at staff during lunch time service
