Restaurant description

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. Spanning from mild to wild, a range of crowd-pleasing offerings includes the likes of sizzling fajitas, juicy cheese burgers, bursting burritos and tender, fall-off-the-bone ribs.

Chiquito also offers a popular brunch menu, lighter bites for lunch, sweet-tooth favourite desserts, plus a gluten-free menu. At the bar, delicious thirst-quenching options are served alongside famed margaritas, and other classic cocktails.

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.

    We booked to make use of the vegan promotion & both enjoyed the food (although we are not vegan).It was tasty and filling, and the dessert was was deliciously indulgent! However the staff were unaware of the promotion and we had to explain it to them & show them details on my mobile. I did assume when we booked through Bookatable the restaurant would know what offer we had booked for. It took a long time at the end of the night to sort out the bill, which was a disappointment after liking the decor, convenient location & enjoying the food. Considering it was at the end of the month, it was surprising no-one could process the promotion- a lack of training or instruction from Head Office? I would possibly go again, but not if in a hurry.

    All good but please make sure you serve the children's desserts before the adults. Our three year old grandaughter was not amused that her icecream came after the adults and her 8 year old brother got theirs!

    Food a delight! My husband always chooses the Ultimate Fajita - loves it! The venue is welcoming and comfortable, the staff are lovely and so obliging, and the food extremely good! Also loved the Mango & Passion Fruit Mocktail. Delicious and very good value at £2.99 and £1 for refill. Will definitely order again!

    My first time at thus restaurant. Due to bad weather only 2 staff were serving but they done an excellent job. Very comfortable surroundings. The food was good but potions size was very small for the money.

    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.

    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
