Burger was disappointing, not as big as you would expect, more like a child's portion but with a big piece of lettuce to make it look more?? And three wraps with the fajitas seemed a bit tight? However you can ask for more ? Not sure if they charge though?

In a stunning glass-fronted setting, Chiquito Chelmsford serves flavoursome Tex-Mex cuisine. The bright dining room is filled with rustic wooden benches and South American-style artefacts, for a wonderfully authentic 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 Chelmsford. 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.

A lively, modern retreat, Chelmsford Chiquito is housed in a trendy modern development in the city. Chelmsford Rail Station is a 10-minute drive away, and the magnificent architecture of Chelmsford Cathedral is a 9-minute drive away.

    I was very disappointed in this occasion. Service was very slow and staff appeared to be struggling - it wasn't particularly busy. I thought a two hour parking ticket would have been sufficient for one adult and two children to dine. It wasn't. I've been here before and all was good. Think I caught them on a bad day. The manageress was apologetic and applied a fair discount.

    The service was very slow although our waitress was good. Our drinks were very slow in coming, 10 mins after ordering. When we told the waitress she said she would give us a free round of drinks (cokes and lemonade), there were five people and we only got 1 coke and 1 lemonade.
    My grandson had fajitas and the salsa was very dry, when we told the waitress she brought him a dish of salsa.
    The restaurant service and food was not as good as the last time we used it.

    Enjoyable evening. Good service and great food. You could never complain about the size of the portions!

    Fabulous food, great service and value for money, although when I hooked I pointed out we were there got my daughters 13th birthday so I thought that maybe a little fuss might have been made, didn't expect cake or anything like that but in other restaurants they go tend to make is little more special so a little disappointed there. Didn't ruin the meal though and my in laws who have never eaten median before really enjoyed their choices from the menu, my problem was there's so much nice looking food it takes me ages to choose! Only downfall is having to pay for the car park and not be able to get it back in some way street the end, especially when you are spending over £200 on a meal.

    Too long a wait for everything!

    We have been to this Chiquitos many times & always had a fantastic meal. Unfortunately half of our meals were cold. The management were great at arranging new meals. It just spoilt our evening out as it was for my father-in-laws birthday & one of the cold meal was his. The second meal also took too long to arrive. He wasn't impressed by the quality of his replacement meal.

    Explained dairy allergy to waitress. Dessert was brought out on a dairy based sauce? The sauce is not listed on their allergy menu and yet was served. Had to question it. They said it contains dairy. They brought another out only after we questioned it, asked for the £2.95 refund for it (having spent £80 between the party) and were told we had to write the reason for refund on the receipt and the manager ripped the receipt from us in a strop. Not the customer service anyone expects. Will not be returning. Recommend anyone who has an allergy to be weary when dining here and the attitude of the manager is awful.

    We felt very rushed the meal was ready a few minutes after the starter and sat on the side waiting.
    The meal itself was not great
    The chips had obviously been cooked some time before and had been reheated
    The chicken was very dry as if it also had sat around then be reheated
    the t bone steak was supposed to be medium but was rare also, was more like rump than t bone
    The pudding was nice although it said came with strawberries and it was raspberrys
    We were in and out with a three course meal in an hour!!!!!
    Not really the evening we planned
