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.

    Food was good, but service was not great at all. Our mains were not ordered after our we had finished our starters. It was only when we asked how long our mains would be our waitress realised. She did give us a free round of drinks. But it did ruin the meal.

    My son chose this restaurant as it was his birthday treat. The food was not to my taste but everyone else seemed to enjoy theirs. Being vegetarian I opted for the five bean chilli. It was cold and stodgy, with huge lumps of onion and pepper, which made it look like the chef couldn't be bothered to chop them, so I had to cut up the vegetables myself. Because it was my son's treat I didn't make a fuss, but I wouldn't choose to eat their again. The dessert was nice but the prices overall were much too high for what you were getting and the sevice was slow.

    Had to wait a long time to order our drinks. No fizzy drinks available which wasn't great as I had 2 16 year olds with me.
    Food was lovely but definitely needed more staff as service was rather slow...
