Within the busy shopping centre, Chiquito Portsmouth Gunwharf Quay offers an authentic Mexican and Tex-Mex dining experience. In a perfect waterside setting, Chiquito is a 7-minute walk from Portsmouth Harbour Rail Station.

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 *location*. 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.

Close to where HMS Victory is moored in Portsmouth Harbour, tired shoppers and tourists can dine at Portsmouth Gunwharf Quays Chiquito, with delicious Mexican and Tex-Mex food.

    Terrible service. Food came at all different times, one of my children had their food nearly ten mins before my other child. We asked for more drinks halfway through our meal, we eventually got them the exact time we got our bill. I asked to speak to a manager and his answer to keeping us happy was to not charge us for the drinks that we didn't even have!!!!

    Awful! We got seated and then given menu's, we then ordered our drinks and starters after 20minutes out starters came out which were lovely then after 30 minutes we were still waiting for our drinks to come! No one came to collect our plates from pur starter so when our main meal came out it was disaster and had to juggle the plates around! Food was very plain and didn't taste of anything and I had fajitas and the fajitas were hard and tasted very stale! My partner had tacos which were okay but the meat didn't have any taste just wet sloppy pulled pork! Very disappointed with this restaurant! Will not be going again!

    Busy but atmospheric. Large menu!! Had the large sharing platter to share between the 4 of us, which was tasty. We went on to share 12 dishes of street food (bit like tapas) which was interesting, some good flavours. Their cocktails were ok ish.... I had 2 x Gin Fizz, one had too much lemon juice in & the other was served in a cracked glass with a chip out of it!! When the cocktail was returned (untouched obviously) one half the size appeared in a cheap thick wine glass!!! We had eaten enough, so no desserts.

    Excellent dinner , the steak was cooked to perfection . We enjoyed the ambiance and we never felt rushed to vacate the table for other diners , such a pleasure to take our time and given the space to chat ! We visit once a month as a group of spanish
    students from yesteryear so we so enjoy the atmosphere of Mexico ,so to speak . Thankyou
