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.

    The menu choice was enormous, ambience was nice, however,the noise inside was very loud due to general music and chatter bouncing off hard flooring and walls. The food was good, but portions were smaller than appeared on the menu.
