Absolutely wonderful meal but service could've been improved, this is due to repeated mix ups with food and drinks which seemed to be down to too many people serving different tables whereas in other restaurants 1 waiter/waitress serves 1 table which saves confusion

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.

    Easy to book online and my booking was there when we arrived. Greeted and seated by front of house waitress. Table waitress was not very friendly or polite and the restaurant wasn't that busy. She didn't bring our side dish out and didn't apologise when we mentioned it. Food was good and all came out hot (fajitas). Waitress did not return to our table to check all was ok. Overall a little disappointing as previous experiences have been better there.

    The service wasn’t that great we had to ask twice for drinks then the wait for food was rather long. Won’t be back in a hurry.

    I haven't been for a couple of years, The menu is much smaller and not much of a choice now, I used to have the chicken on skewers but they had all gone. Not enough waiting staff so service slow , although all were friendly. Took 45 mins from entering before we got our meal. Husbands chilli con carne looked like a load of slop, not appetising at all and I wont describe what I thought it looked like!!

    Very very slow service. Some people waited so long for a waiter to take their order that they gave up and left. Took us 30mins to get the bill.

    Was a very lovely evening, starter and main was beautiful. Best place to eat. Staff was very friendly and helpful

    Although I mentioned to the waiter we had a ferry to catch he seemed to laugh this off and the service was even slower.
    A real shame because as always the food and drinks were good but we think again if we are a little tight for time. Sat down at 19:00 mains came at 20:15

    Disappointing. Dine here often and normally good but last night was very poor. Slow service (Took 50 minutes to get another diet coke and then only after 3 reminders).
    My dining companion ordered the coconut sea bass and salmon which is very poorly described on the menu. Please look at this and ensure it makes it clear that this comes in a pot and is not plated fish with a sauce covering but more like fish stew.
