Very efficient Food first class. Little wait for deserts but that gave time to digest the first course. Rebecca who waited on us was first class. Very attentive and always with a smile

Housed within the bustle of the popular shopping centre, Chiquito Gateshead Metro Centre offers a character-filled retreat. Striking decor and a sunny ambience makes for an authentic Latin American 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 Gateshead. 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.

An exciting eatery serving delicious South American cuisine, Gateshead Chiquito sits next to the shopping centre’s entertainment complex. The lively centre of Newcastle Upon Tyne sits just 15 minutes’ drive away.

    Wasn't impressed with food I had chicken burger and the bun was burnt. Spoilt it for me. Another girl said her food wasn't cooked inside. Didn't say anything in restaurant cause the girls who's leaving do it was didn't want to make a fuss.

    Love the lights and cosy atmosphere in Metro Centre restaurant. Fantastic service! Attentive but not intrusive! Pulled pork is a favourite.

  • ((((( 17 August 2016 by Graeme Dodd from Durham

    Reserved a table for 6.30 - just as well as place was rammed on a Saturday. However, table was ready (in one of the circular booths - nice touch as there were only the 2 of us) & we were taken straight to it. Left us alone about 5 mins with snacks before taking drinks order which came then back very quickly. Same girl then took food order - wish I'd made note of her name - excellent service). Took about 10mins for starters & mains to be brought to table - all piping hot! I can recommend chimichanga if you're hungry - it's huge & partner really enjoyed enchiladas. Excellent service, good food & with drinks less than £20 per person. Will definitely be back - thoroughly enjoyed it & recommend you try it. Book a table though!!

    We visited Chiquito at the MetroCentre on a Sunday evening for my daughter's birthday. The restaurant was very quiet but the food and service were both excellent. The menu has a great selection of dishes and also has an extensive children's and young adult's menu (which are both great value).

    Booking online was east, staff friendly. Menus were dirty and sticky from previous diners and cutlery required to be changed. Cleanliness was not the best, staff use a bottle and cloth to clean tables that still feel sticky. Feels like a chain rather than a restaurant. Would not really go back as atmosphere was a little bit false.
